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.
