You know the saying that there are seven people in the world who look exactly like you?
While we have yet to meet all seven, former Deputy Minister of Women, Family, and Community Development Hannah Yeoh recently met one of her doppelgängers.
Power of name
The Segambut MP shared on Facebook that she recently met her doppelganger during a church service in Kota Kinabalu.
Take a look at the picture, and see if you can tell the two apart:
Yeoh wrote that she couldn't believe her eyes when she bumped into her doppelgänger, "like seeing a twin".
While most of us will chalk it up as a coincidence, the 41-year-old believes in the power of name, as in a child becomes what the parents name them.
Yeoh shared that her parents named her Yeoh Tseow Suan, which, in Chinese, means ‘coincidentally a pair’ or ‘likely double’.
"After being named that, my younger sister Megan was conceived and born in the same year. We did everything like twins. Same schooling year and same class!”, she was quoted by Borneo Post
That didn't end there though, as when Bakri MP Yeo Bee Yin joined DAP, they were often confused for each other.
Then, the encounter with the doppelgänger took place, further convincing Yeoh that the power of name is real.
“After church last Sunday in Skyline, Kota Kinabalu, I met a fellow sister in Christ, Amanda and could not believe my eyes when I saw the striking resemblance!
“So I am now fully convinced of the power in a name. What you name, the child becomes. I am constantly seeing double. My two daughters are starting to look like twins. I am praying favour and wisdom will likely double for me,” said Yeoh.
Who knows, maybe Yeoh and Amanda will be as close as sisters now, right?
