Latest CNNGo.com "Say What? with mrbrown" column: Watching the World Cup at a Singapore coffee shop
It was 1.30am and I was sitting at the coffee shop I frequent after work. I had planned to grab a quick bite of fishball noodles at this coffee shop (we call them "kopitiams") which is along my bicycle ride home but then I realised it was airing the World Cup matches and decided to make myself at home.
I belong to the group of Singaporeans refusing to cough up the US$64 (S$90) subscription that the two cable TV companies were charging for the World Cup. So I've been watching the matches in every way possible, including at kopitiams. Tonight, the 2.30am match was between Brazil and North Korea. (cont'd)
