TwentyFifteen 13/20: SINGAPORELANG – WHAT THE SINGLISH?

$10.00

Singaporelang – What The Singlish? is Zinkie’s visual interpretation of the much-beloved local slang. In her words from the introduction of the book, “Whether or not you are a native speaker of Singlish, this rendition is confirm-stamp-chop better than Charades lah.

Don’t pretend and act atas lah, you really don’t know what is Singlish meh? It is a rojak or chap chyeof English, Chinese, Malay, Tamil and some Chinese dialects lor. Linguistics experts will say, it’s the creole version of English spoken in Singapore.”

The founders of Platform – Tay Kay Chin, Darren Soh, Ernest Goh and Leonard Goh – initiated TWENTYFIFTEEN to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Singapore’s independence. 20 photographers have been chosen to create 15 images each, with a folio published for each photographer in the months leading up to August 9, 2015.
