Things People in Singapore say

Just some things I overheard when travelling on the MRT or sitting at a cafe.

Often I don’t even want to hear these conversations, especially those of business folks who seem so overconfident and love the sound of their own voice. I would prefer some peace (they often plop themselves beside me and speak so loudly) so I think it’s fair game I share it here.

It seems that after covid, business folks have spilled into non office spaces and have their business meetings and calls at cafes rather than at their respective offices. So if they wanted privacy and not leak business intelligence, they should take that into account. But most companies want to save office rental costs so this is what is happening as office space shrinks.
