Tunch: A Fad?

Tunch

In Hindi, “tunch” means “trivial; meagre” (see http://dict.hinkhoj.com/words/meaning-of-TUNCH-in-hindi.html). In Singapore, it’s a neologism from a blend of “unch” from “lunch” and “t” from “tea” which means to have lunch and tea at the same time. It might develop into a common practice of eating heavily – not meagrely.  It’s not something out of the mind in a city of food-lovers however!
