    Sometimes I wonder if it's the society that breed such attitudes from forming... We keep getting views directly about them stuck-up owners (since they are stationary), I'm wondering if the customers play a part in making them become what they are...

    Just yesterday, I was at Singpost obediently queueing up to receive the service. A older lady (dressed like a tai tai) just walked up to the counter demanding her service, in short cutting the queue... Nevermind, service personnel requested that she gets behind the queue... She retorted that it's only a short service - a pick up for a registered article. Staff explained that there is a queue line. She just walks off and made a big fuss about the situation... I was like thinking - old woman, get your fat ass off the premise! Kewdos to the brave staff!

    So... I wonder if it's ugly customers breeding ugly store owners (don't give a damn attitude)...

    because store owners are not trained service providers. they're the bosses

    They should change their attitude. Customers are their bosses, as they bring them business for them to sustain a living. Without customers, these stall owners can go fly kite liao, not fried kway tiao.

    We should invite Gordon Ramsay here to review our local hawker cuisine.

    Actually we have plenty of wild pigs in the jungles in Singapore suitable for Char Siew.

    All you have to do is to hold a net and get a few friends to chase the wild pig into it.

    The rest is easy. Just rotate it once a while on top of your barbecue stove.

    I always wondered how cookhouses in Pulau Tekong get their supply of pork.

    Correction, wild boars in Singapore will CHASE a platoon of screaming soldiers instead.

    ... There is an Army's directive.. No Porks allowed in Pulau Tekong... There was an X-file.. a recruit was "butchered" by evil ghosts there... his body was "lost" but his entails were all spilled out on the rock...

    Trust me.. i used to work for G.S.I during my NS
