S’poreans react to news that 3rd Kopitiam employee sacked, this time for washing uniform in food stall sink

Posted on 07 August 2015

Three thoughts that must have went past your mind at some point.


A Kopitiam employee who worked at the Changi General Hospital outlet has been sacked for washing her uniform in a food stall sink after the food court had closed for the day.

This is the third time in three consecutive months that Kopitiam had to sack an employee for violating hygiene standards.

A five-minute video that showed her in the act was submitted to evening newspaper Shin Min.

Kopitiam operates more than 50 food courts in Singapore.

Here are three thoughts Singaporeans have:


sian-half-auntie “Is it really so hard to do something wrong these days without getting caught?”
Seow Er Ke, 42-year-old mixologist


sian-half-uncle “If they can do this sort of thing out in the open, I can only imagine the things they do when out of public view.”
Tu Zi Tong, 67-year-old herbalist


happy-bird-girl “I hope this few incidents will teach the staff that they need to be more vigilant when doing wrong things so they don’t get fired so easily.”
Chao Yew Yu, 17-year-old dried food distributor
