To show that he is committed to spending big, a Singaporean man picked a seafood dish at the economy rice stall during lunch time in full view of everyone else in the queue behind him.

Jiak Cai Png, a local, said: “I picked the fish dish first to demonstrate early that I am a high-roller, a shark. I’m here to spend big because I can have seafood.”

“Then for the second choice of dish, I chose chicken with long beans, which is still considered a meat dish. At this point, my meal is already costing $5.20, which puts me at the 90th percentile for spenders compared to the rest of the people in line.”

However, the move was instead a strategy to get more food.

Jiak said: “Before picking the third dish, I played it cool by by saying ‘Hmmm’, which made the server think I am gunning for something else and I am still thinking about my choices,” he explained. “But I quickly revert to saying, ‘Ok, that’s it’, which caused the server to quickly pick up another three pieces of beans and put them on my plate or else it will look conspicuously not enough to be worth $5.20.”

Sources said the next person in the queue picked bean sprouts as the first dish which relieved the pressure for everyone else in line.

Cai png tax on the way.

In a bid to become a vibrant metropolis and the top city in the world, Singaporeans from all walks of life, who react to alarmist news, are urging the authorities to ban cai png, also known as economy rice.

This after they read that as eating white rice leads to diabetes, this results in people amputating their limbs and costs the Singapore economy S$1 billion a year, as those affected can no longer be cogs in the machine.

One Singaporean, Jiak Leow Bee, said: “This ban on cai png will follow a ban on the public consumption of alcohol after 10.30pm, as drinking in public is only acceptable if one is seated at an establishment with table and chairs and charged exorbitant prices.”

“Likewise, for the ban to be successful, Singaporeans can still be allowed access to cai png, but only if they paid through their nose.”

“This is, otherwise, commonly known as imposing a sugar tax.”

Other Singaporeans said they are aware as to why there is suddenly this war on diabetes by the government.

Another local, Huan Qian, said: “As Singapore is aiming to be car-lite in the future, there is a need to find other sources of taxation, or else, the revenues collected by the government will dry up when there is no more road tax and ERP charges.”

“Informing people rice is bad when everyone eats rice and have been doing so for centuries, will make people have no choice but pay to have access to a staple diet.”

“Eat rice can cost Singapore economy S$1 billion a year.”

“No wonder cai png is called ‘economy rice’.”
