    Default "Mad About English"

    If you've never heard of this movie, go YouTube it. Extremely hilarious. You won't regret it. Trust me. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FBFEgMqhOs4

    Should make one about Singapore too. Some of my top favourites in Singaporean English:

    delegated service (dedicated service)
    stuffs (stuff)

    and for those NSmen out there who've prob heard it before:
    tunnel (tonner)
