Haha it's okay lah

A common Singapore phrase

  • Used superficially to hide hurts and deflect further questions
  • Used self-righteously to say that though one is hurt/wronged, one is benevolent while wishing hard that the other party is seen as an asshole 
  • Used impatiently to prevent others from doing the work one knows he/she can do in a fraction of the time, not thinking about building others up
  • Used as one ought to, to say simply: God is in control, and therefore all is well
