By Rex Shelley
Feel like a goondu when you ask for a cuppa in a kopitiam? Wish you could charm everyone from the chattering aunties in the crowded streets of Chinatown to the beaming makcik in the Gelang Serai soto mee store? Or perhaps buaya that seksy girl with witty rapport? SOS of Singlish reveals our language sins against English and is stuffed with trivia, gems and devilishly funny nonsense. It will aggravate academics, titillate with unexpected jokes, and educate you on the snags and wrong sounds of Singlish.
