Din Tai Fung, the Chinese eatery that is actually better than Tim Ho Wan, is bracing all its restaurants for a spate of thefts.

This after labour chief Lim Swee Say publicly admitted to being a cheapskate toothpick pickpocket — despite making millions a year as he is tasked to upturn the downturn.

Swee Say reportedly told reporters at a talk on Monday to praise success, stroke some egos and xiao long baos: “And because I go there very early – 10.30 in the morning – always full right. And guess what? By the time I left, normally right, it’s half left. The other half is in my pocket.”

The labour chief’s action has prompted ordinary Singaporeans to want to one-up him.

Jin Yao Quee, a Singaporean, said: “I’m going to Ding Tai Fung and steal their table and bring one of their waitresses home.”
