Singlish: A Siao (Crazy) Blind Date

Siao: Crazy (Hokkien dialect)
Aka: You got to be kidding me. / You must be crazy! / This is ridiculous.

On a side note on dating in Singapore:

A long time ago, matchmaking was very common (we’re taking about 70 years back) and people married each other when they’ve only met once or twice! This is never case now. Other than the usual friend-introducing-their-single-buddies setup, there are a couple of dating agencies that arranged dates for singles compatible with each other who leave their profile with them. There are also speed dating sessions where a group of people meet and have a minute or two with everyone else individually to each other.

Special thanks to Grasso for allowing us to hold Robert’s and Cynthia’s blind date there!
