One of the many unwritten rules of CBD culture is not to remove packet(s) of unattended tissue.
Anyway, most of the ladies who placed tissues are usually found in the long queues for freebies or discounted stuff around Raffles Place during lunch time.
Take the tissue, put on the table. Eat, use the tissue. Put tissue back on seat, leave.
i would suppose that it will be under the "No Littering Sign"
get the guy to issue them fines and see if they dare to do it again.
or bring a trashbag and start removing all the tissue papers on all the tables
since it is rubbish in the first place
BTW i have lunch at 2pm
Usually, when I am looking for seats, I would random pick up some of those tissues and leaving the "chope" seats empty for the next needy person with the tray of food. Of course when the tissue owners returned, they are not happy, neither is the innocent hapless person eating their food.
Now if we all do that randomly, eventually everybody will soon realise the silliness of it. When the tissue gangs knows its useless "chope-ing" they will return to "normal" again.
Bros, this is the time to effect change... Let's pick-up those tissues every now and then..
Let's make this a better place!
Here is another type of kiasu behaviour...chopping places in queues. Attached is what I took at the entrance of the Rock Auditorium on Friday at 12 noon. When I first saw these pieces of paper, I thought there were garbage and was wondering why they were not picked up by the cleaning staff there. Apparently some kiasu people were chopping their places at least 6 hours before the actual event started...incomprehensible to the eyes and minds of the uninitiated!

Shd go there and kick the brochures messing it up
Its a unique and accepted practice in the Raffles Place/Tanjong Pagar area for people to chope seats using a packet of tissue paper.
I personally feel its quite a good system ... at least you know you'll be secure with a seat after ordering food...and avoid the hassle of carrying a hot bowl of soup whilst searching for one.
