Origin: Malay – lt simply means more, greater, further.

Lagi is the Malay word that is used to describe something that is more or greater than usual which can be for the better or for worse.


For the better: “I tell you it is a must to eat nasi lemak with sambal chilli as it makes the taste lagi sedap (tasty), the hotness of the chilli is lagi shiok than your normal chilli sauce.

For the worse: “My Mum was already very angry when she lost her handphone and my Dad still continued to lecture her for her carelessness making the situation lagi worse.
