Singlish - The Most Efficient Way To Use Words

La Li Leh Lor Lu. Sounds familiar? Take a short walk down the busy streets of Singapore and you will easily notice that Singapore has it's own very special language that is totally unique to any where else in the world.


We're talking about Singlish lor. Singaporeans, living in a multi-racial country with residents that cover the complete colour range from white to black and everything in-between, love to mix and match anything and everything that they can get their hands on. Be it food, language and even clothes, which can sometimes go horribly wrong.


Just like our infamous local dish 'Rojak', the Singaporean version of the unhealthy salad, where anything and everything from fruits to condiments to deep fried stuff is chucked into a single bowl and tossed about for a few minutes then magically it becomes a ready-to-serve local specialty dish, Singlish is the result of thousands of years of perfecting the art of mixing and matching all forms of languages to be able to express ourselves in the most efficient way possible.


Here are a few comparisons of how Singlish helps everyone save their voices.


[And for those of you who do not know of the word 'chim', it means 'very profound']


English: "Excuse me, may I borrow your pen for a moment?"

Chim-glish: "Sorry to interrupt, but would you be so accommodating as to furnish me with your writing apparatus for three winks?"

Singlish: "Paiseh, lend ah!"


----------


English: "Is anything bothering you?"

Chim-glish: "My intuition is telling me that you are showing a hint of agitation as a result of some disconsolate events."

Singlish: "Ho Seh Bo?"


----------


English: "Come on! You know it won't be as fun without you!"

Chim-glish: "Don't be a killjoy! Your participation in this event is highly anticipated."

Singlish: "Go lah!"


----------


And of course, what language would be complete without our all time favourites, the swear words


English: "Fuck!"

Chim-glish: "Holy Mother of God!"

Singlish: "Sial Lah, Kan Ni Na Beh Cao Jee Toad Bye Bye Macham Barbie Pondeh~!"
