SO! Now i am sure you guys have a clear picture of what is a Kopitiam...Basically in this post, my main purpose is not just to let you guys know what is a kopitiam, this is what happened in a kopitiam we went into today.

As usual, we were having our meal with friends and while we were enjoying our meals, we talked. This is like a package u know, when we were enjoying our food we talked too (we will talk when we have finished munching our food in our mouth..haha). And when we got a lil too excited, we will turn the voice volume a lil louder adding laughters in that. Then an uncle came to our direction,speaking in Chinese "Can u guys speak softer?"

First thing that came to my mind...."WHAT IS THE DEFINITION OF A KOPITIAM?"(so pls refer to the above) Do they even expect us to shut up though out the eating "journey"? are we in some kind of formal and expensive places? We are not in the library! nor are we in the hospitals! why should we even care to shut up when others were still talking in the kopitiam? he expected us to shut up when he was yelling away for the chicken rice order? he expects a kopitiam to be filled with quiet people???
