15 Brand Names That Singaporeans Have Been Pronouncing Wrongly

Singaporean love brands. Have you ever wondered if you have been pronouncing these brand names correctly in the first place?

Seriously, there is nothing cool about mispronouncing the biggest names in the streets where you have ten pairs of ears picking up how joke you were, especially in big cities.

I’m sure nobody wants to be stuck for words when trying to pronounce some of your favourite brands in the fashion world, nor boasting your new thousand dollar buy and get laughed at for your mispronunciation.

Hopefully this will help… practice makes perfect!
