China family uses MRT seats as beds (Singapore)

Oblivious to the strange stares that they're inviting, two girls turned a stretch of MRT train seats into their beds for a snooze, even removing their shoes and using towels as blankets to keep out the cold.
Kyann said in her email to STOMP dated June 23'08,
"My colleague took these pics last Fri (20/6) @ 6.30pm while on a train to Marina Bay, heading towards the North line."
"This China family was so inconsiderate! "
"The kids literately slept in the train, with towels as blankets.The elder sis even urged the younger sis to sleep soon, as there will be more passengers boarding the train shortly."
So a guy approached the mother & highlighted that their behavior is inappropriate.
"Unfortunately, the mother replied with her rather strong Chinese accent which was difficult to understand ... the guy was angry.
"Along the journey, the train suddenly stopped and there was an announcement.
" So the guy said sarcastically: 'Good for you.. The train stopped, and you guys can sleep longer.."
