The words “discombobulating,” “raucous,” and “rambunctious” are no longer actually used in everyday vocabulary. However, Defense Minister Dr. Ng Eng Hen seems to be returning the use of such terms to popular culture. So it seems that a meme of his favorite word usage was recently shared online.
On Thursday (June 6th), the online community page shared a meme featuring the choice of words preferred by Defense Minister Dr. Ng Eng Hen. Memes that gained more than 100 shares within a day on just one social media platform were captioned as “Dr Ng Eng Hen’s Chim (profound) English words of the day were translated into an easy-to-understand language.” Was done.
The first word “noisy” is used to describe something unpleasant and loud. Below Dr. Ng’s first “Words of the Day” speech bubble was the word “Sibeykaopeh.”
The second speech bubble has the word “rough”. This is another way to say something is vibrant or noisy in an uncontrollable way. Below this word was “Shivacher.”
In the third balloon, there was the word “discombobulating,” which is a more complicated phrase than “confusing,” followed by the word “Sibeyluan.”
Online users couldn’t help leaving 2 cents in the comments section of the post. Some people play with humor, while others suggest that it is better to speak in “simple English.”
“If you can’t convince them, confuse them,” one said. Another said of the famous salary of Singaporean government leaders, “we are showing off to the world the exaggerated English of the minister who paid our million dollars.”
