Nailed it. We’re talking about the place that used to be the hipster’s favourite place to ‘do work’ with a laptop.

Grab The Merchandise But Take Away Your Coffee

In case you’ve been living under a rock, you’ll know that Singapore’s taking increased measures against Covid-19.

Sitting closer than 1-metre to others in a public space can result in jail time or fines.

Of course, family members and couples are exempted from the rule, but let’s be honest, people are going to judge you if they see you sitting on a crossed out seat anyway.

Plus, the government is also hoping that all Singaporeans will “defer all non-essential trips” to the malls.

Essential trips, in their definition, are those that are made to buy essential goods like food or groceries.

Even then, they’re hoping that you can order your food and groceries online.

One thing for sure, though, we can all order our coffee and maintain a semblance of normal life.



We must be socially responsible as well when doing so.

So if you’re still going out for work or just a cup of Starbucks Green Tea Frappe, make sure to download the TraceTogether app, yeah?
