Who says our English is teruk? Just read below - Ours is simple, short, concise,
straight-to-the-point, effective etc.



WHEN GIVING A CUSTOMER BAD NEWS


Britons: I'm sorry, sir, but we don't seem to have the sweater you want in your size,
but if you give me a moment, I can call the other outlets for you.


Singaporeans: No stock.



RETURNING A CALL
Britons: Hello, this is John Smith. Did anyone call for me a few moments ago?
Singaporeans: Hello, who call?


ASKING SOMEONE TO MAKE WAY
Britons: Excuse me, I would like to get by. Would you please make way?
Singaporeans: S-kew me.



WHEN SOMEONE OFFERS TO PAY
Britons: Hey! Put your wallet away, this drink is on me.
Singaporeans: No need lah.



WHEN ASKING FOR PERMISSION
Britons: Excuse me, but do you think it would be possible for me to enter through this
door?
! Singaporeans: (pointing at the door) Can ah?


WHEN ENTERTAINING
Britons: Please make yourself right at home.
Singaporeans: No need shy shy one lah!



WHEN DOUBTING SOMEONE
Britons: I don't recall you giving me the money.
Singaporeans: Where got?



WHEN DECLINING AN OFFER
Britons: I would prefer not to do that, if you don't mind.
Singaporeans : Don't want lah.



IN DISAGREEING ON A TOPIC OF DISCUSSION
Britons: Err...Tom, I have to stop you there. I understand where you're coming from,
but I really have to disagree with what you said about the issue.
Singaporeans: You mad ah?



WHEN ASKING SOMEONE TO LOWER THEIR VOICE.
Britons: Excuse me, but could you please lower your voice? I'm trying to concentrate
over here.
Singaporeans: Shut up lah!



WHEN ASKING SOMEONE IF HE/SHE KNOWS YOU.
Britons: Excuse me, but I noticed you star! ing at me for sometime. Do I know you?
Singaporeans: You see what ?

WHEN ASSESSING A TIGHT SITUATION.
Britons: We seem to be in a bit of a predicament at the moment.
Singaporeans: Die lah!!


WHEN TRYING TO FIND OUT WHAT HAD HAPPENED
Britons: Will someone tell me what has just happened?
Singaporeans: What happened ah? Why like that one lah?



WHEN SOMEONE DID SOMETHING WRONG
Britons: This isn't the way to do it. Here, let me show you.
Singaporeans: Like that also don't know how to do!



WHEN ONE IS ANGRY
Britons: Would you mind not disturbing me?
Singaporeans: Celaka you!

This one is wrong:

WHEN ONE IS ANGRY
Britons: Would you mind not disturbing me?
