He grumbles about those he sees frequent a LAN gaming shop opposite the comic book store he owns.

“They pay S$10 for 24 hours, they can stay there the whole day,” he complains, arguing that they should be spending their time reading instead. “I feel sorry for the future of Singapore. These young people are out of control.”
