The Demystification of Singlish exclamation

(By a Malaysian :p)


-har ~ to show uncertainty in what you have just said [eg. wat u mean, har]
-hor ~ to stress what you have just said [eg. u betta eat this, hor]
-loh ~ to show that you don't care and tints of slight frustration [eg. I dun understand wat u mean, lor]
-leh ~ to lightly plead or manja [eg. dun lyk dis, leh]
-lah ~ to show some extent of carefree-ness [eg. verry farnie, lah]
And to achieve a greater comical effect, please stop for one second before you say the Singlish exclamation. Therefore the comma is used in the examples.
