    post such stuff in stomp and you'll get comments like "why never shoot pictures of the face?", or "why did you bother to take pictures instead of telling her off/alerting SMRT staff", etcetc

    Maybe the poor lady needs to call her husband urgently ("Dear, I ran out of credit on my credit card, and I need this $10,000 camera equipment now, and baby she's crying herself crazy!") but ran out of battery...?
    Give her a chance lor... poor lady, she!

    if she was talking there for ages, i'd have to say "ugly singaporean". if she was there just to give a quick call to her husband, i woiuldn't mind.. but your thread title says "...and yakking away in mrt.." so....

    so why is no one get arrested for doing this? this is a common sight. ive seen students and adults charging and using their laptops in train stations. in the airport its a common sight as well.

    if they don't want people using electricity, they should at least put some sign or something.

    what ever it is, a person should not take anything that does not belong to him/her

    We can use the electical socket in Starbuck? Or is the staff just closing one eye?

    I do know the wifi in starbuck is free.

    Are you telling me that anything in the public place, we can use?
