There are few accents in the world I like more than Singaporean English. I love getting on a Singapore Airlines flight and hearing the crisp announcement from a very Singaporean captain. But if there’s one thing I like more than Singaporean English, it’s Singlish. 😉
Singapore National Day is coming up on August 9, and to celebrate, Jetstar Asia will be making Singlish announcements on select flights on that day only.
Here’s how they describe this:
We’re turning some of our on board announcements into Singlish, but just for one day only – on Tuesday 9 August!
If you’re on a return flight into Singapore with us, and want to experience the Singlish announcements, please let us know on our Facebook page at facebook.com/jetstarasiaairways.
Remember our April Fool’s joke? Many people told us they love the idea so we’re doing this to celebrate Singapore’s 51st birthday!
And don’t forget to cheong our very special SGD51 sale, so cheap don’t buy you really rugi!
Here’s the promotional video about it:
As you can see above, this was originally done as an April Fool’s Joke, but became so popular that they’re bringing it back. Here’s their video from April Fool’s Day about introducing Singlish:
Man, this almost makes me wish I didn’t already have plans for next week!
