Only In Singapore



Seen in a coffee shop at Changi Airport. Here in London the same sign would say "No lounging" or "No begging" or something equally bad.

haha.. its actually quite common to find students studying in coffee shops.. at least, that seemed to be the trend where i studied.. the coffee shop didnt complain too much as long as they ordered something, but i spose depending on da type of crowd they want to cater to, da management might put somethin like this up..

Simply great, coffee shops should be there to relieve stress, not for further studies! :P

The Changi Airport is known to be one of the most popular studying venues for high school students! Why that is so, I have not a clue.

Huh? That's insane! If they tried that over here, the coffee shops would be out of business. They thrive on the students who sit there for hours writing essays and drinking copious amounts of coffee.

Maybe students go there, pretend to get off with each other whilst actually studying. That would be a good tactic. Pretending to look at porn on their laptops while hiding a spreadsheet in the background or something.

T - It's weird but many Singaporeans actually go there just to visit the place, you see families strolling around as if they're in a park or something.

Ha, You should see the coffee shops in Berkeley! Many of them have extension cords all over the place so you can charge your notebooks. Even though I could never study in any of these, I used to go there to ogle babes and have relaxing cup of coffee, so I could get hyper!
But then again, those coffee shops in Amsterdam!, that Java might like, will never have one of these signs! :)
