JERORIZE  (Contributed by Kevin)
To nullify something. Literally, to make ‘zero’ (or as we pronounce it, “jiro” or “jilo”).
“If you don’t clear your leave by the end of the year, I will jerorize them.” (If you don’t clear your leave by the end of the year, I’ll record it as forfeited.)

(jee see-ow)
To provoke, irritate or disturb. The original Hokkien term from which this is derived means to titillate sexually.
"Eh, I'm si beh busy now. Don't come and ji seow me."

The proper way to pronounce "Zebra".
"There got jibra crossing, why you must jaywalk?"

The proper way to pronounce "Zero".
"Your test how come can get jilo one?"

JUANG LAH  (Contributed by Human Bear)
Of uncertain origin, this phrase probably derives from the Malay word "juang" meaning to fight or struggle. However, in Singlish, it has ironically come to be an expression of resignation or nonchalance, similar to "Whatever" or "Anything".
1. Ah Beng: "He everytime say you, you don'ch care, meh?" Ah Seng: "Juang lah! Let him say, lah!"
2. Ah Check: "Eh, what you want to eat tonight, ah?"
Ah Soh: "Juang lah, anything also can."

"Pretty." Of uncertain provenance.
"Convent girls are all damn jude."
