On 05th November, 1983, my mum brought me to this world. And being born in the the “King” family, we all followed “Zhu Pu” 祖谱" in naming descendants. In my generation, males are given “Seh”, and females as “Xiao”. My first uncle chose the name “Qin” for me. So, *ta-da*, my name is King Siaw Chin，龚小钦。
Chau and Ping think that I looked like "Chucky" , and my mum... looked like Bruce Lee in this pic.
Both my parents are
Going to kindergarten was not easy for me, for I had to memorize how to write my Chinese name. At that time,
Bet most of you can only read the middle. Hah!
All my primary classmates happily called me “Xiao Qin” and also, enjoy giving me nicknames like King Kong (the most common of all, even till I went to my high school I still get that quite often), Qin-Chai (Vegetables) and Qin-Wa (Frog). So “sweet” of them huh? Ya right… But dunno what happened, when I’m in my secondary, all my friends and classmates called me “King”. They find it easier to remember and say. And I like it too. So when I get to meet new friends, I’ll intro myself as “King”, and usually people find it amusing and asked more, or, go show-off their not-so-funny sense of humor by saying, “You King ah? Me Queen leh. We King and Queen ya”. So lame.
But when I started to work in CFK, I cant call myself “King” anymore, because people will get confused. There’s my uncle there, and 3 of my cousins working there too, and we’re all “King”. So, I start introduce myself as “Nonnie”, to be different from the rest of Kings, anyway, my father side relatives called me “Nonnie” ma. I figured it’s easier like that. But still, there remain some who called me "Xiao Qin", and I remembered C2 liked to call me "Xiao King"or "Xiao-King-King" , and that's so cute. Recently.. my moronic colleague likes to call me "Kong-Jiao-King", sounds like Banana-King la.. SAI!

And of course, like all couples, I’m given pet names by my love one. But I’ll prefer to keep it to myself, unless you guys heard it when Bobby calls me. J
