Images that contain text written noticeably in Singlish, a colloquial form of English spoken in Singapore. Singlish often incorporates loanwords from Chinese (Mandarin and others) and Malay, and may also contain phrases from Tamil.
Due to geographical and shared cultural reasons, some varieties of colloquial Malaysian English (i.e. "Manglish") can be very similar to Singlish. Manglish as spoken in most parts of Western Peninsular Malaysia is often nearly indistinguishable from Singlish (i.e. can only be inferred by meta knowledge of the character's nationality). As such, these examples can also be tagged "Singlish".
