I am a commoner in the Lion City State. Wa-lau… Don’t tell me that newspaper people dunno about the major happening in this place is big INFLATION?!  The most pinpoint word in Chinese for this year is ZHANG (Inflate) alright.

The Chinese words XIN (New) and ZHEN (Tremble) been suggested by local newspaper are far off target.  Just be truthful and down to earth in reflection of year 2011…  keep trying,

This year (2011) everything has “Zhanged” (inflated) to a level that affects commoners livelihood, including transport, foods, property (oh my goosh), and commodities.  Oh yeah, prices for per cup of coffee at heart-land coffee shop has increased too.

My suggestion:  ZHANG should be the best Chinese word to best describe 2011 Singapore.  Leave the “Zhen” (Tremble) to Japan and Christ Church.  It has no meaning to us.
