Peko-Chan


Janice told me that she wanted Peko-Chan for Letitia's 2nd Birthday cake for this year, she requested her cake to be bright and colourful.
I went to google search to find out more about this character and found out that it is actually an advertising mascot for Fujiya Co., (不二家) a famous Japanese confectionery company, which is forever a 6 year old girl in pigtails with her tongue hanging out of the side of her mouth.

"san" and "chan" Name Suffix
Japanese people append the suffix "chan" (as in Peko-chan) to the names of close friends and family members as an expression of fondness and familiarity. This same suffix is also commonly applied to the names of children. Males sometimes receive the more masculine suffice "kun" (as in Poko-kun). Adults invariably receive the suffice "san" which indicates polite respect on the part of the speaker ("san" is rarely used with children).
