    IIRC philanthropist Tan Kah Kee met his future successor and son-in-law Lee Kong Chian after sharing an umbrella.

    That's because he didn't know 空手.

    Umbrella was his weapon.

    I'd sometimes try to strike a conversation with strangers when I feel like it (be it guy or gal) and mostly I got negative responses with frowns and thinking "this guy siao ah?" :O

    Once bitten twice shy... my experiences haven't been good
    What you have experienced is what I term 'city dweller syndrome'.

    Compared to suburbs and country side living, city life is fast paced. Most people go about their own business and shut out their surroundings. With time we become less trusting of strangers as they are unknowns.

    Having someone intrude suddenly with an offer of help or even a simple question raises guards very quickly and the natural response is to take a safe position by saying no without fully sizing up the situation.

    Travel to any outlying towns or villages and you find a very different set of people.

    as creepy as it may sound, most of the time i don't even ask, i just stand near the person and start sheltering him, and when the person notices, just smile. they are always grateful so far. (i also evaluate which unsheltered person needs it more, top priority being the elderly)

    of course it's probably very different if it's a lady. then need to make sure u dun have a tiko face.

    I dun share my umbrella with strangers because I dun like standing too close or sharing my personal space with strangers.

    Anw wif singapore's rainy weather, if a stranger thinks it is unneccesary to carry an umbrella outdoors, then its his own choice and he should be prepared to get wet or stuck under a shelter when it rains.

He also no umbrella. In the end, I also just go ahead without asking either of them. Unless there isn't anyone or area is remoted, I will help else forget it. Wait that woman think I want to "molest" her as got another man without umbrella too. haha!
    If I was the other guy without umbrella and you offered me to share the umbrella instead of the lady, I'd be scared

    would you open up your umbrella, assuming it is drizzling and you only need to cover about 100m? and of course the umbrella is those foldable ones which you keep in your bag?

    Of course share.
    But don't insist if the other party declines for whatever reason.

    I want to laugh when I read this thread.

    If Umbrellas are meant to be shared they will be in rectangular shape and have two handles.

    You guys think too much.... just do what you want to do.
    Pictures always should have a special story behind it or a special meaning to the photographer.
