Is Singlish having a moment (again)?

I guess it's a National Day thing.

First, we have Hossan Leong in Today:

Then we have this Time magazine article:

The Today article references Dr Gwee Li Sui as expected. I predicted in May that "any discussion about the Government’s policy on Singlish will henceforth have to namecheck Dr Gwee Li Sui". The Time article doesn't mention Dr Gwee by name - but dredges up Phua Chu Kang.

On top of all that, there's also this Jetstar thing.

Power sia!
