ah, the tragic abuse of the "lah"... you must be a foreigner? [-X well, here is a free lesson on singlish:

1. sticking "lah" at the end of any old sentence does NOT make it singlish.
2. we do not actually WRITE the "lah". it is spoken.
3. the correct colloquialism for questions is "ah?" eg "who inspired you ah?"
4. the "lah" is used to
a) emphasise a statement eg "don't be stupid LAH!"
b) provide a cadence to an otherwise low-key statement "ok lah"

anyway, we do appreciate your attempts to speak our lingo. you expat people are the best LAH!

Thank you Admins :mrgreen:

I don't know what you have done but I haven't changed ISP's or settings on my end at all but I am noticing a dramatic improvement in response/reloading times now for the past 2 or 3 days.

Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!

We need this one really badly primarily in response to Carpe Diem!
