Kum-seng

Of late, Gooly has been using a new word - kum-seng.

At first I thought it was yum-seng, sum-seng, poh-seng..but no..he insists..it's kum-seng.

He usually says, "Mom, you are so kum-seng!" when I make a blunder, fall into the drain or make a faux-pas.

..which makes me think, the word is equivalent to chimakan in our language.

...I think kum-seng is inspired, derived or originated from the name poh seng. Whoever he is. *shrugs

He probably meant "Kam sort geh sam seng" but short form for Kam Seng.

as per the juvenile's dictionary of new words, it was stated as follows:

kum-seng: adj (kam-sing): to describe a person who is short, fat and ugly.

Example: waliao eh, u see that old cow, dam kum-sing!
