Distasteful? Demeaning? Don't care
by Crystal Chan

POLICY officer Sarina Gomez, 33, felt that it was distasteful for diner- cum-bar Over Easy to give more free drinks to women with bigger breasts.

But that didn’t stop her from attending the Fill My Cups event at the nightspot last night.

After all, she’s a D-cup and a member of OverEasy’s parent company Lo and Behold Group, so one could say that Miss Gomez’s cup runneth over.

Her cup size entitled her to a free bottle of vodka and since members get double the freebies, she ended up with two bottles.

“As a woman, I think the event is distasteful because it clearly exploits women’s breast sizes,” said Miss Gomez, who declined to be photographed.

“Then again, I get free drinks and since I’m a member,why not?”

Women with A cups got one drink, B cups got two and C cups got three.

The event saw the 300-seater venue in One Fullerton enjoying a full house from 9 to 11pm.

Miss Gomez said: “It’s funny how women are queueing up for drinks when some think it’s exploitative. So perhaps Singaporeans are becoming more liberal and open.”

Still, she credited OverEasy for coming up with the event.

“It’s another form of Ladies’ Night,” she said, referring to the common gimmick where clubs give women free entry to attract men.

Two “mystery” judges at the event – Dave, a musician, and Karen, a lawyer – assessed the women visually.

Miss Lisa Chew, who’s self-employed, was there with two friends, Miss Lydia Ang, who’s also self-employed, and Miss Ace Chong, a banking executive. All of them are 25.

She said: “When we saw this on Facebook, we thought it was something new and decided to come and see for ourselves.”

Unlike Miss Gomez, the trio did not think OverEasy was exploiting women.

Miss Chew said: “We’re just flaunting our cup sizes while wearing normal clothes. “Besides, you see more A-cup- and B-cup-sized women than those with C cups and D cups so it’s a good way to make women have more self-confidence.”

In The New Paper yesterday, Ms Dana Lam, president of the Association of Women for Action and Research (Aware), called the event “demeaning”.

Miss Melissa Thomas and her friend, Miss Melissa Wong, both 29 and D-cups, said they were there to celebrate the latter’s birthday.

Miss Thomas said: “The event isn’t exploitative – if you don’t like it, then don’t come.”

Some of the men who were there said that they wanted to look at busty women and get free drinks off their female friends.

Mr Mervyn Lee, 21, a student, said: “I’m here because I love looking at women’s breasts.”

He said in jest that he was a “pimp” as he wanted to get free drinks from his two female friends even though they were A-cups.

the only frowning issue i can think out of this event is, A cups people damn sad! Honestly its an interesting event. Although some may say its exploitative, they are not refusing entry to people of a-cup or smaller O: so loosen up.
