FAQ: Why “Peachies”?
“Peachies” was a nickname given to me in my freshman year of high school because I would always carry a bag of Trolli gummy peach rings with me (back then, the candy was called “Peachies”… they are now called “Peachie-O’s”). The nickname stuck and I started using it as my username for various online sites (AsianAvenue, Findapix, Xanga, Myspace, etc.)
Today, many of my friends still call me Peachies.
And coincidentally, my Chinese name is Pei Qi (珮淇)!
