A recent experience at one of the nearby cafes made me ponder about what we as patrons of cafes and restaurants can do more, likewise in the hawker centre as well.
After having a sumptuous meal at the cafe with my family, my dad was there to stack the empty plates onto each other, to facilitate clearing by the staff. It was just a simple act on his behalf to prepare the table for the serving of dessert, but it allowed the staff to clear the table with great ease. The staff came by and thanked my dad for stacking the used plates and cutlery together before she served the dessert.
Simple acts of love doesn't take much effort from us but it does little wonders, just like dessert.
