"Malaysia Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad and the Sultan of Johor are seen in a blue Proton Saga... "When asked whether there is any tension with the sultan, Dr Mahathir said: “No, I don’t see anything because I went to see him and he drove me to the airport. I don’t want to comment on the sultans because if I say anything that is not good then it’s not nice because he is the sultan”"

"Equations are the devil's sentences." - Stephen Colbert

***

Recently, I've discovered a bizarre new Singaporeanism:

"creme la crop"
(The correct version, of course, is "crème de la crème")

Whereas there're other English faux pas, this one seems Uniquely Singapore (there're only 2 isolated examples of its use outside the Singaporean Internet, and even then both are a variant: "la creme la crop")

Palsambleu!
