Public and authorities can learn from this episode.

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who believe blame must not be pushed onto people unnecessarily anymore, have come out to appeal on behalf of the robber who robbed a Standard Chartered bank in Holland Village.

One Singaporean, Yue Liang Ta, said: “Let him go scot-free. Singapore no longer has a blame culture. We only have a learn culture.”

“The pain and regret from robbing a bank and having to make a run for it will cause lactic acid to build up in his legs and make him feel tired and out-of-breath and make him think about how he should have trained harder for the event but did not.”

Other Singaporeans said the authorities can make this a learning point.

A local, Mah Ta Lia, said: “Maybe if we stopped arresting people, that would be a start to a learning culture.”

They cannot tell The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf from 93°C Bean & Leaf.

Patrons who patronise Holland Village are having the biggest headache of the century.

This after everyone who set foot into Holland Village said they cannot tell the difference between The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf (left) and 93°C Bean & Leaf (right).

This is such a big issue it was reported in the newspaper.

One patron, Lao Hua Yan, said: “The one on the left is brown and has the word ‘coffee’ and the one on the right is black. Oh my god, I cannot take it! I still cannot tell them apart. Help newspaper! Help me differentiate!”

The Sunday Times then very helpfully published an article telling apart the subtle differences between the two cafes to prevent further confusion.

For example, such as how brown is not the same colour as black and how one is on the left and the other is on the right.

This caused many patrons of Holland Village to be very grateful, because without the help of the newspaper everybody will be misled and think that they are drinking coffee from Coffee Bean when they are not.

Another Holland Village patron said: “What would I do without The Sunday Times giving me such clear guidance? There is no way I could have told the cafes apart on my own. I would have walked into one thinking it is the other.”

“And I will be cheated and I will die.”

Cats, rabbits, hamsters and their owners also willing to show solidarity.

Approximately 300 dogs and their owners will organise a flash mob at Holland Village Häagen-Dazs in a bid to raise the consciousness of managers of food establishments nationwide.

This after the Häagen-Dazs outlet in Holland Village barred a visually-impaired woman’s guide dog from its premises as it is a pet.

This caused quite a stir on the Internet as people reacted with righteous indignation.

This further led to dog, cat, rabbit and hamster owners and their pets to want to join in the flash mob.

Yang Xiao Gou, a chihuahua owner, said: “We are trying to show the establishment what is or is not a guide dog.”

Other non-dog owners said it is easy to point out the difference between animals that act as guides and animals that are useless pets.

Xiao Bai Tu, a rabbit owner, said: “The difference between my rabbit and a guide dog is that, when I put my rabbit on a leash, I’m dragging it around instead of it leading me to where I want to go.”
