We were at YK Kaya Toast. Those who frequents YK should know how competitive the hunt for table is. We spotted this empty table, and just before we sat down on the stool, 2 kids appeared from nowhere and sat down before us. Then their parents came in. It was like, we were already right at the table, our butts on the way down to the seats and then we got squeezed away.
The family spoke Japanese.Incident 2:
I was on the upper deck of the bus, left side. At one crowded bus stop I observed 2 boys squeezing from behind through the boarding people (including old ones) in front and getting onto the bus. The 2 boys went up to the upper deck, sat at the first row. They took off their shoes, rested their feet on the railing. They peered down that driver's periscope window, and then placed their plastic bags blocking that window.
They spoke Korean.Incident 3:
We went to this famous bak kut teh restaurant at Balestier. When we reached the front of the queue, the staff asked if we mind taking the outdoor table since the indoor area was full. Before we could reply, this woman behind us popped in front and said she didn't mind. Hello, I know you are eager to cut queue and all, but doesn't mean I am not willing to take the available outdoor table.
She spoke Mandarin.
Just some observations, don't drill too deeply into them.
