If you want to chope a table, you put a packet of tissue. If you want to chope a parking lot, you put two 'ah-mas'?

If you want to chope a table, you put a packet of tissue. If you want to chope a parking lot, you put two 'ah-mas'?



The 'chope-ing' culture is prominent in Singapore and it is usually observed when dining out at coffee shops or hawker centres.

And unfortunately, this toxic culture has been shaped to be part of the Singapore identity.

Watch the product of our toxic culture unfold before your very eyes: 

What Happened?

This incident occurred at an open-air carpark at Block 114 Geylang Lorong 3.

Two 'ah-mas' stood in a vacant white parking lot to 'chope' in a supposedly crowded carpark.


As a result, they prevented a mini-van from parking at the vacant lot, which indirectly obstructed the traffic flow in the carpark. 

The van driver then alights from his vehicle to film the elderly ladies' absurd actions.

Due to the obstruction, vehicles started piling up behind the mini-van.

Toxic and Self-Centered

Lo and behold, a Chevrolet Sonic rolls up to the parking lot and parks head-first into the lot. 

The driver, an elderly man, presumably the spouse of either one of the elderly ladies, alights from the car and walks across the carpark. 

IMO, their act of 'chope-ing' a vacant white lot is nothing but a toxic and self-centred act. 

Just because they insisted on having that white lot, they wasted the precious time of many other motorists.

Oh, well. And those two elderly ladies probably don't have a driving license either. 

I guess you won't know the woes of a driver if you aren't a driver🤷‍♂️


Ps. For those wondering why the van driver did not park in the other vacant lot beside it, the reason is that it is a season parking lot (red lot).

Bopian, what to do?



Time for them to buy this and 'chope' more lots in the future.

  • A Volkswagen Jetta's need for speed leads to a dangerous collision after beating a red light

    You’d think after we’ve written so many posts about drivers running red lights and failing there’d be fewer cases. This is why you guys should share our articles so that your friends will be made aware of the consequences of driving recklessly (i.e, being our next post)! What happened? A Volkswagen Jetta tried to run a red light after failing to give way to a red MPV that I believe is  a Honda Stream. Don’t quote me on that second one though. The footage shows the Jetta speed



    Powered bicycle exceeds 60km/h while playing with ‘lightsabers’

    Another day, another PAB/PMD story. Why is it always the younger people using these?   What happened?  At 1.32 A.M, a PMD and PAB (Power Assisted Bicycle) were spotted going over 60km/h on Jalan Eunos.    The PMD is initially in the lead but that changes at 0:34 in the video, when the PAB surges past the PMD like a turbo kicked in.   Impressively, it looks like this was all while the PAB rider was using one hand to keep the bike steady as he held a f



    A reckless race between a Lancer and a Scirocco results in a sad BMW X3 and a 2-hour jam

    TL;DR – A Mitsubishi Lancer and a Volkswagen Scirocco were caught on camera speeding along the CTE and overtaking other vehicles using the road shoulder. Unfortunately for one of the two idiots, one of them hit a BMW X3 in the process and went full turtle, causing a 2-hour long jam in its wake.   Lancerlution – It’s the term people use to refer to Mitsubishi Lancers trying their best to be EVOs (like this gum gong gia or a Lancer driver) Multiple angles of this incident



    Fast & Furious gone horribly wrong for this Honda Jazz, causing crazy jam along the Pan-Island Expressway

    TL;DR - P-plate Honda Jazz collided with a lorry and smashed into the road divider, resulting in a massive traffic jam as lanes were blocked.  Watch this epic 33-second clip of the Jazz getting rekt by the lorry before going head in on the road divider.  What happened?  The ballsy P-plate Jazz driver allegedly sped and crashed into a lorry, cannon into the road divider before overturning.  Turns out the car is also rented from Tribecar, as pointed out by netizens who spo
