I've mentioned this multiple times, but it hasn't been properly explained how my nickname, SugarGaL and later, Gula Melaka came about.
My Chinese name's "Shu Hui". So since I was little, my relatives and family friends would call me "Shu-ger", a play on my name and "girl". Eventually, Shu+girl = Sugar!
They still call me this even till today. Not all of them, but they still do. xD
Ragnarok Online came to Malaysia in 2003! I was 10, and I wanted to play it, but I needed a username. My cousin brother suggested using Sugar. But "Sugar" can't stand alone... so a random thought threw "Gal" behind "Sugar". (so now I am Shu-ger-ger!) And it stuck until today. Except that I capitalized "L" in case people couldn't tell. And that stuck too.
Why Gula Melaka?
20-07-2007, at Debbie's house for her birthday party. She was doing introductions. Somehow, something spurred her to dub me "Gula Melaka". I laughed so hard. It was totally true.
1. I'm SugarGaL
2. I'm from Melaka
3. I'm like the Gula Melaka (brown palm sugar)! I am sweet... and dark
So there you have it, the origins of my nicknames! I use other stuff like "Persephone" too, but mostly because it looks and sounds cool, hehehe... I really like Gula Melaka because of its deep meaning, but I think it's a bit too lengthy for normal usage. And it's very much an in-joke. xD
The end kthxbai.
