Because its one of the few English words with a singular form that ends with an 's'? :p And you know... Proper English not Singaporean's forte.

well at the end of the day so long people are able to communicate what they wanted, that is more important.. the idea must get crossed to the other parties..

indeed our English standard is a bit way of as compared to the past.. but.. well then again that is why people started to use this term "Singlish".. self-explanatory..

Neither is the English in England speaking English. Try taking comprehension of a conversation among some Londoner, and you will end up with a lot of spelling mistakes.

There is even a country which english totally disappear. why in America, they have not used it for years.

You've just invented the word "Len".

1. Can you len me your lens?
2. I wan to len photography.
3. Wear more lah. Today is Si Beh len.
4. You want len with your kopi?
5. The len is too bright. Got not so power or not?
6. Tu Len.
7. Don't be Kwai Len.

i got a boss whose a londoner as well...sometimes he tend to make certain comments that are somewhat out of the blue/context...even my superior have some difficulty understanding him way of english.

well TS the level of english displayed in this forum is not as bad as hwz...try going there to take a look, you be shocked to the core by their countless spelling mistakes...as if they wanted to spell it in that way.
