Those of you who have lived in Singapore will understand what I am talking about. Efficiency drives are everywhere. Sometimes it is so efficient, it all happens and end without you noticing. I experience some of these yesterday in the food centre. I was enjoying my bowl of noodle. Then halfway I got up to go to the wash basin. Just less than 10 seconds and the cleaners took my bowl away.
