SKALI  (Contributed by Mark)
Adapted from the Malay word sekali, meaning "once" or "on one occasion", denoting a one time occurrence. However, in Singlish, it is commonly used convey a general cautionary sentiment with a hint of foreboding. ' Skali' loosely means any one of the following, depending on the context: "If you're not careful, you may find out that..."; "What would happen if..."; "Unexpectedly, it turns out that..."
1. "You better don't anyhow go clubbing and disturb girls. Skali she is one kind of ah lian, then you know."
2. "You everyday go to work damn late and leave so early. Skali your boss find out, how?"
3. "We early already say we want to go Zouk with them. Skali last minute they go and cancel."
4. “I was driving along this road, when skarly this idiot runs in front of me!” 
5. "You don't go and read so many porno magazines, skarly you go blind!"
