I got the inspiration to write this post after reading my dear friend Waliz in the Waliz Diary. One of her post is about her name. My full name is MOHD HAAZIQ. [noted the double As] A name that is suppose to means "intelligence" in Islamic meaning. I am not sure if I have managed to wear my name with a proud but I am definitely trying.

My Arabic's skill doesn't take off well. Studying a new language always a challenge for me. Who want to learn how speak Malay? haha. Anyway, I really hope that my name won't turn into the "Blackest" name [read more? Click Related Post at the bottom of page]. Human shouldn't be judge only by its name! If you are a job interviewer, should you just ignore me just because my name sound silly? What if my name sound like "James Bond" or Jason Bourne"? Should I be hired? Oh wait a minute, what if my name sound "Asian"?
PS: sorry. This is my edited post. I thought I were clicking Save As Draft button last night. Instead I must have pushed Publish Post button. Silly me!
