But food is only half the story that makes Cuppage Plaza, a year-old building at Somerset, so wildly popular with the Japanese in Singapore. For the typical salaryman, after-hours is only complete with a round of booze and entertainment, and then getting somewhat drunk. So once the bill has been paid at the restaurants on the lower levels of Cuppage Plaza, the Japanese customers simply move to the higher floors of the eight-storey building.
There, a plethora of scantily clad ladies wait to invite them into the various Japanese-themed KTV lounges. Most are given generic Japanese names, like Miyubi and Miyaki , and decorated with even more stereotypically Japanese icons such as sakura flowers and geisha paintings.
But the illusion of a Little Tokyo dissolves the moment I step into the main lobby at midnight on a Thursday, when a Filipino lady springs upon me a line of broken Japanese in the blandest of faux accents. Appearing out of nowhere and touting so close in my face was an ungracious tactic for a line of work that is supposed to leverage sex appeal. Nothing about this invitation appeals to my fully sober senses, and I politely shake my head to decline. The lady frowns and returns to her spot — behind a pillar — where she lies in wait for a more inebriated male customer to prey upon.
As I venture upstairs and into the hotspot of KTV lounges, the disconnect between nationality and language becomes even more jarring. Ladies loitering in the corridors converse amongst themselves in their native tongues of Mandarin, Thai and Filipino; not a single hostess is Japanese. But once the resounding laughter of intoxicated Japanese men reverberate through the quiet corridors, almost every woman shouts a default Japanese greeting before showering bouquets in English.
Another girl asks me if I want to head inside her lounge, this time in a slightly more cheerful tone than the previous request. I reject the invitation once again but decide to engage in conversation. I ask her what the Japanese men typically do in lounges like hers. Noticing the phone in my hand, she instinctively leans forward to inspect. There is reason for this high level of suspicion among the girls towards non-Japanese patrons at Cuppage Plaza. Its reputation as a seedy building along the shopping district has attracted the attention of the police in recent years — just last month , five women were arrested in a police raid on three entertainment outlets for suspected drug-related offences, and another two for appearing nude in a public place.
