That study was conducted over a 60 meter course (sidewalk) devoid of display windows and other Singaporeans. It also had a Free "Hello Kitty" doll at the other end. :lol:

Geez... I'm a local and I can fully understand all ur frustrations as well. Sadly, I'm ashamed to be one actually, the average singaporeans are a bunch of inconsiderate pple.

They drive me nuts all the time whenever I walk behind them, they are walking as if the whole lane belongs to them only. Talking and stopping for conversations in the middle of the walkway! Why can't they move to one side just baffles me. :???:

That would place you among that 'group of inconsiderates' eh? :P

Dang! You can't let the walking habits of a few of "those-who-don't-move-to-your-beat" get your pants in an uproar.

Walkway

I didn't know they had walkways in Singapore. They always seem to be used as "standways". The long "walkways" in the airport drive me crazy. Once you get on them you know that you'll get stuck behind a load of people just standing. Not of much help if you're late for your flight and it's way down the other end of the building!
