Singapore – A video of a man shooting bubble tea pearls through a straw at a metal signboard is making the rounds online. It has garnered cheeky comments, with someone  joking that it would be no surprise if bubble tea shops were the next to close because of the incident.

As the country enters the third week of its circuit breaker to contain the spread of Covid-19, during which the people have been urged to remain at home and to go out only when absolutely necessary, there has been an increase in social media posts of people still outdoors for non-essential matters.

On Sunday (April 19), Mr Royston Ong posted the following video on the Facebook page SG Covidiots, the hub for unusual happenings during the circuit breaker.

It was filmed on April 17, at 8.45 pm at 883 Woodlands North Plaza. It is not known what the man was doing outdoors and why he was shooting bubble tea pearls through a straw at the signboard.
