    Then you're a very lucky person. I have asked numerous places and mostly no.

    Where did you shoot specifically that were fine with photography? If not convenient to post here, can also PM me. Thanks.

    Shoot? Pubs, cafes, Japanese Restaurants. Even used flash and their decorations, etc. I usually ask "ok if I shoot my girlfriend?" heck, a bartender even joked I've to get a drink from him for $100bucks.

    prefer to be using a compact instead...attracts less attention.

    If I'm a cafe owner, I'll allow. But must include the cafe's name in your photos, free advertisement

    I agree..

    They see people taking DSLR, they always label us as "pro"..
    When they see compact, they heck care..

    No U turn syndrome in S'pore.
    Typically, you ask, they will say no.
    You just do a few snap shots with your family members in the pict, usually ok.
    S'porean shops are all very paranoid over ppl copying their shop layout/price/design/etc.

    I've encountered an interesting one the other day. This bloke had his bird (in cage) hanging across the road from the coffeeshop he was at. A fellow photographer went over to take some shots, but he was stopped. Cannot shoot his 'bird' (maybe a privacy issue)

    Anyone know of any alternatives? Cafe-like place?

    A last resort will be me shooting with a small prime without flash then
