The Singlish abbreviation of "frustrated".
"I study so hard also kena F9. Damn frus, man!"
Of uncertain origin, this term often connotes extreme frustration. The general consensus is that it originates from the Army (the source of many creative Singlishphrases), where a "spider" was dirt in the barrel of one's rifle. If during inspection, you found a "spider" in your rifle, you'd have to strip it and clean it all over again. Hence, "fuck spider" would either be a common expletive amongst recruits, or an exhortation by an annoyed inspecting officer/NCO. Some, however, believe itdates back to an old practice amongst boys to catch spiders in the undergrowth, house them in small boxes and make them fight.
FUGLY (Contributed by Bernard Goh)
Abbreviation of "fucking ugly", used when "extremely ugly" cannot do justice.
"She think she damn pretty, but acherly, she damn fugly."
