PETALING JAYA: Are you single, under 30, aren’t working as a doctor/lawyer and want to know how to deflect annoying questions from your relatives this Chinese New Year?
A website designed for mobile devices by Wunderwerks Singapore called “Why so kaypoh?” (www.whysokaypoh.com) aims to help you to do just that.
The page features some 50-odd questions on five different topics (Lifestyle, Career and Money, Love and Relationships, School, Marriage), with tongue-in-cheek responses to boot.
For example, the “When are you having kids?” question brings up a list of answers, including: “As soon as the value of Asian babies go up”, or “I had some for breakfast. Crispy!”
Other snarky answers include “I saw how boring your kids turned out so, I’m trying to be nothing like them,” to the perennial query “Why you never choose to study Law or Medicine?”
Designed for Singaporean users, the site can still be used by Malaysians, though locals here will most likely have to swap terms such as “HDB” for something else.
“Kaypoh” is a Chinese term used to describe “busybodies”.
