Kiasu & Kiasi makes us safe & tasty?

Kiasu & Kiasi makes us safe & tasty

Being "kiasu & kiasi" makes us safe & tasty huh? I guess that means most Singaporeans are tasty too then??

An ad that will never make any sense in any other parts of the world!

In which case, go to the Coxford Singlish Dictionary, and scroll down to these two words for the meanings!
