What is “Shiok“?
For all whose been asking and wondering what “Shiok” means. One thing that we’ve learned recently, coming from this Cebu Pacific and Singapore Tourism Board’s “Spend a roaring summer in the Lion City” press launch, is the word “Shiok“.
Sherina taught us the ‘it‘ word when visiting Singapore. It means appreciating things whether it’s food, places, people, etc., with extreme pleasure.
So now you know, and add that to your Singapore trip, ‘When we fly to Singapore, let’s all get “Shiok”!‘
