阿獻阿媽

阿獻阿媽,這是在下過去對她的稱呼,因為她的子女中與阿獻最早相識相熟,所以見到她老人家慣稱阿獻阿媽。她與已故周勝駟育有五男三女,圖示2007年在其女兒喜鸚家時所拍攝,她為母親梳頭髮時獨家相片!

當時衛理報同工與她老人家合影,周喜鸚做包給大家吃!

周氏兄弟都生長在詩巫西岸的船溪美祿(Sg Bidut),後來到民都魯發展,也有的到吉隆坡,再下一代到紐西蘭等地;父母先後過世,都要運回唐山(詩巫)安葬;今早他們子孫們於三點多就自民都魯出發,回到詩巫,圖示老大,道忠,拿著母親的遺照登山......

孝孫男阿必哥自新加坡趕回來,拿著花圈送嫲嫲最後一程......

For many generations Chinese and Ibans have been calling (Cheng Fu) mothers and fathers as " Ah Hang Pa/Ah Ming Pa) or mothers as "Ah Chuo Mah/Ah Ling Mah). Amongst the Ibans I am known as Mak Linda.....or Indai Linda.This will one day go out of fashion.
Mr. Lau Nguong Ding (Bus Company) will always be Ah Hang Pa to me since he was our neighbour.
In the past people had lots of respect for others starting by calling them with the right "honourable name calling".

Now we distance ourselves by calling acquaintances "Mrs. Wong" or "Datin Lau".

Are we creating social distancing? And building more social fences?

yes,most of the title make a gap to seperate the relationship of the ppl.
u can see in the newspaper not only state own's title, but also stated that hold what degree or graduate.

Hahaha!
Obama has many degrees. He is just Barrack Obama. President USA.

Clinton too...he is one of the best law professors in the US. but he is just Bill Clinton...so is his wife...

Some people can be so humble...and yet...some people can have a mile long of initials after their names.

Maya Angelou is another example...she speaks so many languages and holds so many degrees very few can match...
