Singlish Afflicts Little Wang

Mr Wang and Little Wang take a walk together on National Day and talk about the alphabet. "Give me words that start with the letter D", says Mr Wang. Little Wang promptly rattles off half a dozen words - dog, door, duck, dolphin etc.

"No, no," says Mr Wang. "Those are the D words you always like to give. Today, try to give me a different kind of D word."

Little Wang thinks for a moment. Then he says, "How about ..... dowan?"

"Dowan is also D word, what. No meh?"

Anyone who can master Singlish at such a young age can master English easily later on in life. Congrats, Mr Wang.
