    I always wished "chuffed" and "cheeky" were used in the US because there really are no satisfactory American equivalents for those words, lol.

    Although greeting everyone with "what's up, guys" could not sound more American! I guess some of our expressions can't help but catch on across the pond, eh?

    I'm having all sorts of unholy thoughts of these twins.

    Singlish is truly a unique experience. I find it quite fascinating when I hear it.

    I remember watching a funny clip some time ago about Singaporeans trying to get Siri to adapt to the typical Singlish accent, lol.

    Link please, I'd like to show it to my Sing friends and make them get angry with Siri all day icon_smile.gif

    Most Singaporeans I know feel ashamed of using their accents and slang in front of native English speakers when they are outside of the country . . . but as soon as they hang out with themselves or come back to Singapore, the word "Auntie" and "lah!" comes flying out their mouths

    Excuse the piss-poor quality, but the clip itself is cute.
