S’porean man gives order name as S.A. Tan to spread Starbucks Christmas cheer

Posted on 21 November 2016

He wanted to see how far he can extend the Yuletide pleasantries.


A Singaporean man wanted to see if the bustling Starbucks outlet he was in that was packed with coffee aficionados in the afternoon would go quiet for a few minutes.

This after he ordered the coffee joint’s Christmas drink served in their religious-less red cup 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”.
