Resident captures energetic scene of singers in mini skirts performing to loud music at coffeeshop in K Shanmugam’s GRC

Recently, a TikToker and Yishun resident captured a happening scene at Chang Cheng Mee Wah coffee shop in a video she shared.

The footage appears to be taken at Yishun 81 Street block 848, showcasing two female singers wearing mini skirts, energetically dancing and singing along to loud music in the background.

The coffee shop was bustling with activities, with many tables occupied by customers, some of whom had bottles of beer on their tables, thoroughly enjoying the vibrant atmosphere.

When asked by fellow netizens in the comment section about the timing of the event, the TikToker explained that it took place on the night of last Monday (22 May). The music was still blaring even close to 10 pm.

However, the TikToker provided no additional information regarding whether the event continued beyond 10:30 pm.

It is worth noting that in Singapore, the Liquor Control (Supply and Consumption) Bill prohibits the public to buy alcohol for take-away or consume alcohol at public places from 10.30pm to 7am daily.

Offenders caught consuming alcohol outside during the designated hours may face fines of up to S$1000.

Netizens raise concerns about the event’s compliance with entertainment licensing regulations

Several netizens expressed concern regarding whether the event organizers had obtained the necessary entertainment license, casting doubt on its legality.

However, the TikToker sarcastically remarked that since Yishun GRC is under the jurisdiction of the current Minister for Home Affairs and Law, K Shanmugam, raise whether anyone would dare to sue or accuse him.

The TikToker further shared that they have been residing in Yishun Block 875 since 1989 and found it surprising to witness such a special arrangement exclusively for beer-drinking tables at the Yishun hawker centre.

She also expressed concern about the impact of the loud music on the residents of the upper floors of the HDB block, wondering if they would be able to rest or study properly, and raised concerns about potential disturbances to babies and elderly individuals due to the excessive noise.

Under the Public Entertainments Act (PEA), unless granted an exemption, any organization intending to offer public entertainment in any publicly accessible location, regardless of whether it is free or involves charges, must adhere to the following requirements:

  1. Conduct the event in a venue approved by the police.
  2. Comply with a valid Public Entertainment License (PEL) issued by the police.

Engaging in or assisting with the provision of public entertainment without a PEL is an offence punishable by a fine of up to $20,000 upon conviction.

However, a licence is not required for the listed public entertainment or arts entertainment activities provided the organiser adheres to the exemption conditions.

For instance, events like “sing-song” (getai) and classical instrumental music performances are exempted if they meet conditions such as limited hours of operation, appropriate use of loudspeakers, avoidance of vulgar or obscene content, and notification to the police at least 7 days before the event.
