In response, the staff immediately said, “If you want, you can only drink here. If you want a packed drink, you can’t sit here anymore.”

According to his post, the OP had come to the kopitiam for breakfast, while his friends, who were foreign workers unable to dine in, were waiting for him there. Hence, he opted for a packed option.

With no intention to escalate the situation any further, he simply left the kopitiam with his packed orders.

Netizens faced a similar situation

Some netizens in the section shared similar experiences, mentioning he couldn’t stay in the restaurant after ordering packed food.

“Is that “kakak” very fat and short? Last time I went to order tea for takeaway, I was sitting and eating, but they wouldn’t let me take it away. She said there’s no takeaway while sitting at the table! Not allowing takeaway tea while dining? I was in a good mood, but she ruined my morning.”

“I used to eat here before, ordering water and rice to eat. Then I ordered iced coffee to go. The Chinese lady boss said we couldn’t pack water to take away, she said packing is only for taking away! What nonsense! From now on, I won’t eat here anymore.”
