New Label : Something to Share

Something to Share means something that I've found on other websites.
It is either interesting or humourous,
Or else it won't be here.

This is taken from http://www.stomp.com.sg/
"Observations on Humour

Mediacorp, which produces a string of "singlish" low end humour programmes, makes me cringe, each time I hear the spoken word.

As a further illustration of this point. This is what you are up against. Read…or should I say "leed lah" ...and enjoy!

"Oxford Dictionary: Singaporean Edition?"

Some low end humour:

1) LILY - adverb. extremely, really.
'Wah, you lily can sing well ah!'

2) VALLEY - adverb. extremely (same with lily).
'Look! My Versachee belt, valley nice hor?'

3) GORGES - adj. stunningly beautiful, normally found with valley.
'Wah! Ah Beng's girlflan is valley gorges leh!'

4) CORAL - verb. to bicker.
'Why, you not happy, ah? Want to coral, is it?'

5) REEF - (normally followed with coral) to argue with.
'You lily wantto coral reef me ah?'

6) ALTITUDE - adjective. a disagreeable demeanour. '
'Ah Lian lily got a bad altitude ploblem'.

7) CIRRUS - adj. certain.
'You cirrus or not? Dun bruff!'

8) CANOPY - phrase. impossible.
'He bought new handphone? Canopy lah! Where got money?'

9) OLDLADY - adj. completed.
'Wah...you finish oldlady ah.'

10) SUIT - verb. to project forward.
'Suit! Suit! See goalkeeper come out oldlady.'

11) SOW - verb. to reveal.
'Sow me, sow me your new ting.'

12) LOAD - noun. a path normally made up of gravel & tar.
'We go Orchard Load leh.'

13) BLINK - verb. deliver, send.
'What you blink for me? Sow me, sow me.'
