  • Besides Facebook's virtual walls, employees and guests are encouraged to write on the physical wall of the office.

  • The names of the different conference rooms which mix East and West popular culture are given by employees. This room is named "I'll be bak choy" with bak choy meaning Chinese cabbage. Other names include "Shaken not stirfried", "Goa head make my day" and "I'm a Seoul man".

  • The terrace has been turned into an open air lounge area where employees can hang out.

    On the right, the letter "F" is hidden among the foliage.

  • The Only Thing With That “Kedai Kopi” Look ...

    ... is that uncushioned wooden chairs are probably not the most comfortable in an air-conditioned environment.

    Can you get kopi tarik and teh tarik as well? Or are those more Malaysian rather than Singaporean beverages?

      Hello ldo17,

      I hadn't looked too closely at their coffee machines but I think employees will need to "tarik" the kopi or teh themselves. :)
