Story Slam #33: Kiasu

  • Artistry 17 Jalan Pinang Singapore, 199149 Singapore (map)

KIASU (kee-ah-soo): Hokkien adjective literally meaning, "afraid of losing". A highly pejorative description beloved of Singaporeans. Possibly our defining national characteristic. The nearest English equivalent is "dog in a manger", though even that is pretty mild.
"You went to get a handicapped sticker just to chope a parking space? How kiasu can you get?"

Come on. Let's face it. Some of us hate it. Some of us embrace it to death. But we'll always be kiasu.

This month, Story Slam wants to hear YOUR stories about the most kiasu behaviour you've seen or indulged in! For more details, click on the event link provided below.
