You've heard of the Sara Lee frozen cheesecakes, that famous dessert from the US. Angmohs familiar with that brand always ask if my name is with a H.

When my Japanese colleagues read my name for the first time, they pronounce it as Sala, which could also sound like plate (お皿) in Japanese.

For those familiar with Japanese pronunciation, I end up with nicknames such as celery (セロリ), salaryman (サラリーマン) and salad (サラダ).

I was so amused at seeing this in the stores that I decided to get one. But maybe because there's a butterfly on the cover design. (I think only ladies will know what this is ;) )
