I got the short name Pook when I was born. Due to it was nickname of Miss Universe , Apasara Hongsakula.

Many Thai girls were born in that period , given name Pook , me too.... ;D
I seemed not like this name because there were 2-3 Pook in same classroom such as Kindergarten , high school and University. mm... And someone called her/his dog that Pook/Pookie.

The singer Pookie was very famous with song Sha la la ....

I worked in an office in Bangkok with foreigners. They also called me Pook.
But I became a tour guide working with foreigners and Thai people. So Pook was too short and misunderstood. Then I used Pookie , easy to remember and call.     

Fortunately , Miss Thailand 2010 has nickname Pook Look.

Then someone likes to call me as Pookie , Pukluk , Pukpik , Kii , Kiki.... No problem , It's me  ;D

MM.... Let's continue about my name.
I was a tour guide for Japanese tourists. I introduced my name Pookie.....
They didn't smile or responded as western tourists.
Then I said that Pocky  ;D ... They were laugh and all did repeat the name.
All Japanese people knows Pocky , biscuit. I loved it too.
