    If he was drinking, please take a picture of him drinking. Many a time I have seen a staff pick up a thrown cup from the floor. Furthermore, the cup looks empty. Show the full story.

    A sweet in the mouth, fine $30. This guy should be fired.

    he is holding it. not drinking it. wat is wrong.. i ever hold my half-filled bubble tea in my hands to take the mrt, in front of the staffs n the cameras. as long as din drink, there is no offense.

    anyway, it is just about bringing food into the train, either in plastic bag or in hands…

    He was not drinking. He was just holding a cup with a protruding drinking straw. Anybody can hold an empty cup in his hand. This case should be treated differently from that of the Indian girl who was fined $30 on the spot for sucking a sweet to calm her motion sickness.

    Hello! He is merely picking up a plastic cup that was left by other commuters and was about to drop it away the next stop!

    In life there are always the pessimists, the opptimist and the realist and while there were discussing whether the cup is half-full or half-empty, the opportunist came along and told them that he had already drank the water while they were still discussing about the issue to find who is right or who is wrong in the assessment. Ha! Ha! Ha! Must educate people to adopt the Principles of JAS – when you see something, do not be quick to Judge, Assume or Speculate. Always wiser to find out the truth first by using the two eyes and two ears that God have given us and use the mouth sparingly as there is only one mouth nstead of two for a good reason.

    I was told by the SMRT staff not to carry the drinks (eg. koi or what ever drinks that could not be capped) into the mrt station and i WOULD be fine $30 dollars if i do not carry it in a plastic bag. He made me finish an undrank KOI ON THE SPOT (or he would impose on the fine).
