Ah Seng

Ah Seng

Origin: Hokkien, Ah Seng is the hokkien pronunciation of the chinese name 阿陈.

Like Ah Beng, Ah Seng (his sidekick) is also someone who has been stereotyped as a young punk/hooligan who is materialistic and not good in his studies. He often hangs out with his good friends Ah Beng, Ah Lian and Ah Huay.

These four names are used simply because they are common Chinese names in Singapore.
