S’porean man orders Starbucks Christmas drink, provides name as S.A. Tan

Posted on 29 November 2015

Mood in Starbucks soured, witnesses said.


A man in Singapore caused the bustling Starbucks outlet he was in that was packed with afternoon coffee aficionados to go quiet for a few minutes.

This after he ordered the coffee joint’s signature Christmas drink served in their religious-less red cup this year and provided his initials as S.A. Tan.

The man who claims his name is Tan Sai Ang, said he could tell he was being judged openly: “From the looks other customers gave me, it was as if I was Satan himself.”

“Well, technically my initials does spell S-A, T-A-N. But that shouldn’t be the basis for discrimination.”

“And here I thought Singapore was a multi-religious society. Even if you don’t subscribe to Satanism, doesn’t make it less valid for its followers.”

At press time, a customer at a Starbucks outlet in town gave her name as “Monica Chng”.
