Another friend has an explanation of "Wah Lau"

It is used for wives to call their husbands, "wah lau" = my hubby , wah=my, lau=husband. He always made fun if people say "wah lau" whose your hubby he would say.

It is crude, in a way, coz imagine naggy wives calling their husband. But not as crude as "sipeh" which of course means die father, literally.

It has become 'oh gosh' liao. Bo Pian loh.

i used to get scolded for using the word 'sibeh', the reason was that it sounds like "dead father" , it kept me off saying it for a while, but when everyone around was using it .. sort of hack care liaoz :lol:
plain amateur, here to make mistakes, make a fool of ownself, and hopefully learn something in the process

The origin of si pay is 'dead father' or an analogy for 'extreme' because what could be worse than 'father died'.

'Si pay jia lat' would mean 'extremely xxx'

Hokkien words are very vulgar.

It is usually used by crude hokkien men in the past. Except that the modern people don't realise the meaning anymore.
