Origin: Hokkien, Ah Huay is the hokkien pronunciation of the chinese name 阿花
Like Ah Seng who is Ah Beng‘s sidekick, Ah Huay (female) is Ah Lian‘s sidekick. The same stereotypical perception of her as a young punk/hooligan who is materialistic and not so good in her studies; just like her three other friends.
These four names are used simply because they are common Chinese names in Singapore.
Ah Lian:”Ah Hua, you are my best friend so we must have the same hair dye colour okay??? Let’s do shocking pink this time round!!
