Kiasu (traditional Chinese: 驚輸; Pe̍h-ōe-jī: kiaⁿ-su) is a Hokkien (a Chinese spoken variant) word
that literally means 'fear of losing' .
Examples of kiasu behaviour includes accumulating too much food
on one's plate during a buffet lunch in case there is no more later,
or joining a queue many days in advance
just to ensure that one successfully gets hold of the limited free tickets
to events, promotions and shows such as Singapore's annual National Day Parade.
This word is so widely used by Singaporeans and Malaysians
that it is incorporated into their English vocabulary (in the form of Singlish and Manglish).
It is often used in describing the social attitudes of people,
especially about South East Asian society and its values.
Its widespread use is often because these attitudes are common —
to not lose out in a highly competitive society (e.g. by above-cited examples),
or to the extent of parents imposing heavy study labour on their children
in their wish to make them at the very top of all other students.
