Uncle (or more affectionately, Unker) Gwee Li Sui is back with another season of Singlish. This time, we look across the border to our neighbours, highlighting some of the more common terms you may hear in Malaysian English, and some comparative ones in Singlish.

First up, Kiasu and Tidak Apa, common terms to describe attitudes in Singapore and Malaysia. 

If you enjoy the series, don't forget to join us in two weeks for the next lesson! Maybe we'll finally answer if it's “tombalek” or “terbalik”.
