Story Slam #35 – Malu Lah!

Saturday, June 24th

8:00 pm - Story Slam #35 – Malu Lah!

Door charge: $5 [It’s FREE if you tell a story!]
Theme of the Night: Malu Lah!

Malay for “shame”, “embarrassment” or “loss of face”.
“When you talk to Jenny, don’t make me malu okay?”

[From the Coxford Singlish Dictionary –]

Ever got yourself in a situation so embarrassing that you just had to bury your head in your hands? Or maybe you just got yourself in a SUPREMELY awkward situation?

For the month of June, we want to hear YOUR stories about the most embarrassing moments in your life. It could be how you made a big business presentation with your fly unzipped. Or it could be about the time you wore a light-coloured skirt/pants and sat on a stained chair, and it looked like you had an “accident”? If you got an awkward moment, TIME TO OWN IT. (Turn that shame into pride!)

Whatever it is, WE WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU!


Story Slam Singapore hosts monthly live story telling events, where only TRUE stories are shared. For everyone who has a tale and for everyone who wants to listen. Everyone has a story, what’s yours?

Your story must fulfill three rules:

  1. Be a True Story
  2. Be about 5- 8 min long
  3. Fit the theme of the night

We are looking for story tellers! To lock down a slot for the night, email your short summary to
