The event started out quite well, with those BGLs queuing up for the goody bags. Out of a sudden, some pesky BGL decided that they don't feel like waiting any longer, and they tried to push their way in. BGLs have this common "monkey-see-monkey-do" pattern, so all of them tried to squeeze their way in. The event organiser then told them that there will be no more goody bags if they continued pushing, but they still continued pushing. The situation got so terrible that the gates were closed, leaving those BGLs outside in the hot sun. If you think Singaporeans are kiasu, then I think BGLs are being kiasu-in-action.
