Fat Fingers : Eh, you got read the papers today or not?
Friend : What?
Fat Fingers : PM Lee said, "Please lor you all! Speak good EngRish leh!"
Friend : HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! My engRish not powderful enough meh?
I was out with my friends today and i was trying hard to speak good English because PM Lee said so and because.. i wanted to. But.. i can't! I'm used to speaking to my close friends in Singlish! When i talk to strangers or people i am not close to, i use perfect English.
So when i told my friends to speak good English they told me.. "Aiyah, we are Singaporeans! Singaporeans talk to Singaproeans can use singlish lah! When we talk to ang mohs, we will switch back to proper English! No problem one!"
But Dick Lee said, if we use proper English, we will still be Singaporeans....so is ok one!
Speaking about "Hor", don't use it in places where Singlish is not recongised ok?
My friend who was studying in the US wrote an email to her Singaporean friend and used the word, "hor", many times in the email.
The IT people checked her email and she was summoned to the Principal's office. He asked her who she was calling a whore! And what "whore fun" was she talking about!
Aiyoh!! So.. please lor you all, speak good engRish ok!
