KAKI/KAKI-LANG (Contributed by trashkore)
A word of hybrid origin. "Kaki" in Malay means "legs", while "Kaki" in local Hokkien means "mine" or "my own" ("lang" means persons). Somehow, the Malay and Hokkien words have blurred into a single phrase meaning "buddies" or "close companions".
1. "Next week I'm throwing a party. Call all our usual kaki, lah."
2. John : Eh, Mary, my kaki-lang all not free to go out tomorrow, leh. Can I go out with you or not?
Mary : OK, lor.
