CHEENA
A pejorative term used to describe a 'mainlander', a Chinese national, a minor 'foreign talent' with the implied attributes of opportunism, rudeness and boorishness. Possibly originally derived from Peranakan (see Cheena Gherk, following), it is now popularly used to label a new generation of Chinese emigrants who have arrived in Singapore to seek their fortunes.
