Origin: Hokkien, Ah Lian is the hokkien pronunciation of the chinese name 阿莲.
Like Ah Beng, Ah Lian is the female equivalent who is stereotyped as a young punk/hooligan who is materialistic and not so good in her studies. She often hangs out with her good friends Ah Beng, Ah Seng and Ah Huay.
These four names are used simply because they are common Chinese names in Singapore.
Ah Beng:”Eh Ah Lian, I think we are the most compatible couple in our school, our style both sama sama and we both look so intimidating. Come, be my stead lah.”
