Singaporean Humour: Shiok!

Every country has an expression that is uniquely theirs. Well, in Singapore, when you say "Shiok", it's the equivalent of 'Satisfyingly, pleasurably, awesome..''.

Here's some simple ways of using the term-

Originally a Malay exclamation, but now a universal Singaporean expression denoting extreme pleasure or the highest quality.
1. “This char kway teow is damn shiok, man!”
2. “I ate the char kway teow until damn shiok.”  

This piece was done by a tattooist in training, Kiat. Inked on training skins. Love the idea and the humour behind this. LOL!
