Thread: Usage of the word 'baby'.(spoof)

  1. #1

    Default Usage of the word 'baby'.(spoof)

    have a question on the informal use of the word 'baby'.

    I sms someone " hi baby, when is your last day?" , she replied " my name is blah blah, not baby.."

    Do you think it's alright to use in regular context between casual friends or do you think it should be reserved for someone you are very close with like a loved one? I'll like to use the following phrases as examples:

    How are you baby?
    Have you eaten baby?
    baby, wasssup !

    Please give me your opinions.

    well, most of them will say, "others, come on another 28 days, but for you, anytime..."

    babe = pig
    baby = piggy...

    everybody love miss piggy...

    I guess if a gal is below 1 year old, it's okay to call her baby.

    don't know if it's considered too intimate, but i think it sounds very un-Singaporean, sounds so ang moh
