I was also influenced by Kath & Kim, and that entire turning-every-other-vowel-into-oi thingy. Hell, I even had to redo one "draft" because it almost sounded like an impersonation. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RXjYGBUuHmA https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gSMmxyGeEb4

Well,
in the first place, we're talking about your creatively-made-up conaccent, not your real-life natural accent;
in the second place I said I wasn't confident and didn't think I really knew enough about Singlish to have any confidence;
in the third place you said to guess, and if I had to guess, that might be part of my guess, but given my ignorance I probably would have preferred not to guess.

I'd guess you're also not from California?
And, based on your appearance and the sound of your voice, aren't a girl?
Also, if you're still a teen, I'd guess you're past or close to eighteen; if not still a teen, still shy of 25 (maybe close to 21?).

All of the above are just guesses on my part. I will not be at all embarrassed to find out any or even all of them are in error.
I will, however, be chagrinned if my errors offend you; I hope they don't!

Are the characters in Teen Girl Squad supposed to be Californian? Or other West Coast USAnian? Or Hawaiian?
Are its creators men from California or the West Coast or Hawaii? I'd guess so.

What about my saying that, if forced to guess, I'd say I detected a bit of UK influence there?
But Teen Girl Squad is just a man talking in a bunch of funny voices.

I knew it was male voice(s) imitating the characters' voices. I didn't know it was one guy (Teen StepDad, right?).
That's why I asked about the creator(s) being men (or a man) from Calif., separately from asking where the characters are supposed to be from.

Any Californian influence was not deliberate and is just an effect of media that you could also hear outside of my conaccent.

For reference, this is what a typical episode of Teen Girl Squad sounds like.

Well,
in the first place, we're talking about your creatively-made-up conaccent, not your real-life natural accent;
in the second place I said I wasn't confident and didn't think I really knew enough about Singlish to have any confidence;
in the third place you said to guess, and if I had to guess, that might be part of my guess, but given my ignorance I probably would have preferred not to guess.

Are its creators men from California or the West Coast or Hawaii? I'd guess so.

What about my saying that, if forced to guess, I'd say I detected a bit of UK influence there?
I do have a bunch of vlogs where I talk in my natural voice though.
So you've seen my vlogs, how do you think do I sound like when I'm not doing my conaccent?
