A netizen shared an experience he had with a family from China having a meal at a Japanese restaurant in Singapore.
They were purportedly upset and complaining about the Japanese restaurant playing Japanese songs, and escalated the issue to the manager, demanding to speak to the restaurant owner because of the “poor taste in music”.
The netizen then stood up for the restaurant and told the family that the music had been playing long before they even sat down.
He also questioned them and asked why were they even having Ramen, which is Japanese food, if they were unhappy with Japanese music.
The family then recorded the netizen on their phone as he scolded them, telling them they this is Singapore, and that they should go back to China if they cannot deal with other cultures.
Here is what he said
Just leaving it here first.
There was a PRC family complaining why is a Japanese restaurant playing Japanese songs in the background, they escalated to the manager and wanted to contact the owner because they felt it was a poor taste in music.
I told the family that the music was playing long before they sat down, and if they were unhappy with Japanese songs, why are they even having Ramen, which is Japanese food… They recorded me on their phones when I told them off.
I told them this is Singapore, we should embrace cultures instead of trying to impose on others, and they should go back to China if they cannot deal with other cultures.
- Kns I go china complain they playing Chinese song sure tio gan one lor, sibei twoface
- Lol meanwhile sushi express has been playing the same 5 Chinese songs for 3 years.
- Wanting to complain to the manager because the place is playing songs in a different language is peak karen behaviour
- It’s the same infuriating attitude i’ve witnessed in Sipadan island. They only spoke chinese and the staffs were obviously indonesians and the PRCs got angry and throwing tantrums because the staffs cannot understand them.
if they were to be more observant they would have noticed me and my friends who are chinese and approach us nicely to translate for them..but too bad i just watch it unfold and eventually the staffs just ignore them.
But i went over and scolded them in chinese when they started to throw their unfinished food to the sea creatures (turtles) when no one else is doing it and there are signs (symbols) telling us not to.
Fking hell cannot stand these a-holes.
- Lol. I was in US a few years back. There was this PRC family who were behind me talking in mandarin, “ why isn’t everything in Mandarin?” I just looked at them with a WTF look and I couldn’t even walk away or else i would be out of the line
