A friend shared this YouTube clip:
On a wing and a prayer
Book-buying spree tonight
Hi there! I chanced upon this websites while I was randomly googling the topic ‘General Paper’ [ don’t ask why. ] I found the video highly amusing! The part on newscasters really hit home for me. I can’t imagine the news being read in the american accent though… Must be all those constant reminders that “we follow the British-way of speaking/spelling!”.
Also all those elders saying ” All the people talking like those ang-mohs, so gei kiang! … ”
Perhaps that’s what leads me to not take the american accent seriously.
