A Singaporean on Tuesday (Sept 13) took to an online news forum to share their disappointment over an experience at a local bar. “(Has) anyone here experience(d) bars or restaurants prioritizing service of expats over local patrons?” the Singaporean wrote, before narrating the events that had allegedly transpired.
“We were at a bar that’s popular with expats,” the post read, “and we couldn’t help feeling that we were prioritised last by the service versus the other foreign patrons.”
The individual claimed to not have been a demanding patron, saying “we kept to ourselves except when ordering and asking for the bill.”
The writer of this post revealed that this kind of experience is not isolated, as the same issue has come up in different places in Singapore.
In response to this, many online users in the forum flocked to the post and shared their own similar experiences that they take as bias towards foreigners. The establishments in their recollections allegedly took place ranged from restaurants, bars, and even taxis.
