These Singapore English speakers have made a whole bunch of "Singlish 101" videos, all of which are really fun. I chose this one because it illustrates a couple of interesting fixed expression (including "win already lor"--basically lexicalized sarcasm), as well as giving some idea of how the vowel system and intonation of Singapore English work.
