That's not Inca though, more likely nahuatl (the language) of the Aztecs in Mexico.

The Quetzal is a bird and also the national currency of Guatemala.

Couldn't think of anything when I signed up. It's my maiden name and I figured not many here in Singapore would have the same name. Sometimes I think I should change it, though.

One of last cats I had back on parents' home - and no, it's not a short-version of 'Cinderella'

It's the same name I use on other forums. Figured why change?

How did I choose my nick? On a thread on the Angry Board about the best Roti Pratha in Singapore back in '02 I was talking about Thasavi when he was a single griddle in the corner of the Chinese Kopishop just outside Seletar Airbase. That was my Sunday Morning breakfast.

Edge, that's my name.

super is just what my sister start calling me, then it became quite common among friends. super edge.
Wherever I go (sites), I always use the same nick. So if you see some superedge in some other website, it might be me as well :)

Also, if you see a very very good looking and smily guy walking in Bugies wearing a brazilian jersey written 'superedge' on its back. that's me as well :)

Another interesting thing to ask would be: 'why did you choose this picture for your avatar? '
