About Cabokia

Have you ever wondered what "cabokia" means? Well...wonder no more...the answer is below:

It is actually a Hokkien word:

cabo = girl
kia = child

So, the combined word means "daughter". "Cabokia"... this is what my family members call me. Sometimes my hubby call me by this name as well - just for fun. I think the nickname was given to me by my late paternal grandparents. Why? Maybe because I am the first grandchild.
