Huat Kueh Boy WhatsApp Stickers

By woonyhIn standard15th April, 2020

In commemoration of Singapore Hokkien Huay Kuan 180th Anniversary, two sets of WhatsApp stickers with “Huat Kueh Boy” (Hokkien steamed cake) as the main character were created. “Huat” (发) means to prosper or to amass great fortune in southern Fujian dialect, and is the name of a steam cake made from flour, eggs, brown sugar and baking powder.

The first set of stickers depicts commonly known Singlish phrases like “Paiseh” (pardon me), “Bo Jio” (did not invite), “Ho Say” (good on you) which originated from southern Fujian dialect and had been integrated into everyday use by Singaporeans.

The second set of stickers addresses the recent COVID-19 public health crisis and pays homage to frontline healthcare workers through expressions like “You Ni Zhen Hao” (good to have you), “Xin Ku Le” (thanks for your hard work), “Jiayou Jiayou” (you can do it!). Members are also reminded to “Yong Fei Zao Xi Shou” (wash hands with soap), “Duo He Shui” (drink more water), “Hao Hao Xiu Xi” (rest well) to stay strong and healthy.
