Jiak gan tang = potato eater (i.e. Westerner)

angmoh = red haired (i.e. Caucasian)

While both of these terms can be, I gather, used in a far more derogatory sense, this notebook is from an adorable range of goodies called “Strangely Singaporean & Proud Of It”, which takes Singaporean cliches and stereotypes and turns them into cuteness! I thought it was a rather apt cover for the Singlish dictionary of an angmoh girl who (currently!!) has a near total lack of Singlish.

When I learn new Singlish words, I’ll add them to my dictionary, and upload photos so that you, dear reader, can also expand your Singlish vocabulary!
