I never thought much about the way Singaporeans (us) speak until i worked overseas. Here in Beijing, I have to think(construct) before saying anything and its quite unnatural.
Recently, I heard a guy speak at the airport here and i knew immediately he was Singaporean. I felt so happy at the familiarity of the "language". I also visited a singapore restaurant opened by singaporeans and the boss is always there. I was eating and I could hear him swear in Hokkien and also speak Singlish. So refreshing.
TO sum up, i really miss speaking like a singaporean, cos that's how we were brought up. Singlish sounds awful as a language but it is close to my heart now i know.
