What's the inspiration behind your nickname in KS forum?

Postby autumnbronze » Mon Dec 07, 2009 3:33 pm

Hi all,

Was 'inspired' to start this thread due to some of the really cute/funny nicknames/avatars/icon here. Some are, I guess, self-explanatory like ummmm KIASIMOM :wink: :wink:, or vain_pot, the latest Newbie :D :D (I could be wrong though), but then again, the nickname could be a facade? Or maybe it could be just a nickname that you picked at random. Or it could be the initials of your names ....

Mine was inspired by the autumn season that I experienced when I was overseas for a while. Bronze is, well the colour that I associate with this season. My avatar/icon is a leaf floating in a pool of water. As you can see from the colour of the leaf, its autumn season. :lol:

Care to share???? :celebrate:

Mine? Well... we already have a Chief Technology Officer, but there was an opening for the Chief Kiasu Officer... the rest was history. Not very creative hor?

My given name by parents is just 5 letters. But then, majority of my relatives doesn't even know my real name. Often when calling me, they cut my name short to become 3 letters. But best of all there's this group of relatives that calls me EN.

Eagle is the nick for my son, and Ladybird, for my daughter. We don't really use these nicks on the children, and so they don't know them.

It started off in the early days when my son was still an infant, sitting in the carseat at the back. When we drive, he will fall asleep so often, that me and wife developed this "talking in codes" : "eagle's staring in space"; "eagle's flying low"; and finally "eagle's down, eagle's down" when he actually dosed off.

And when our lovely girl came along, the same "codes" were used in the car ride, and she's the Ladybird, as she somehow develop a liking for this ladybird stuff toy.

Today, we hardly use such "codes" as they hardly fall asleep in car ride . . . not even our long drive from Cameron to Singapore
