ka chuaz: the origin
the nick originated back in '99 on a field-trip to Beijing. The trip was that of a combined effort by the cluster "zone" that my secondary school was in.
on one of the days, we arrived at an indoor shooting range; it's those type of range where you move around to shoot targets, not those singular circular targets with radius. heehee.there were prizes for the top 5 shooters
cut the story short, i came in second and the "prize" was a plastic housefly...you know..the flying type..insect..
we had dinner at this chinese restaurant, so after dinner I went to disturb this new found friend of mine, we shall call her Cauliflower, 'cause her actual name sounds kinda like it.
earlier that year, we had a talk regarding some sort of "activities" which can result in some diseases and that 1 of those was nicknamed "cauliflower" too.haha..you know..initials are "G.W"
had a good time making fun of her name, before she found out what was the actual meaning of "Cauliflower", courtesy of 1 of my school mates [damn dumbo sia, tell her for what]
Me: *puts the plastic housefly on her shoulders*
Cauliflower: *EEEEE....you stupid ka zhua, why you put that ka zhua on me !!*
Me *Wah lau, you blind ah, that's a housefly lah, not ka zhua*
Cauliflower: *Don't care lah, you stupid ka zhua*
after that faithful dinner, she started to call me "Ka Zhua" every single time she sees me. Soon it spread to my school, then my closer classmates started calling me that too.
The nick survived through till this day, thou I'm no longer in contact with Cauliflower since the field trip [back then we didn't have MSN messenger yet mah]
Since then, I refined it to "Kachuaz"
P.S: at least it was ka zhua, can you imagine "hor xin" as in housefly in hokkien. kao. super "DUH" then. I shall consider myself lucky. lol.
