Welcome to the DBD, a W4C community board where one can talk about pretty much anything, like…
The below picture is a play on the maneki-neko - a Japanese cat figurine that beckons patrons into a shop with one paw. They have been adopted across eastern Asia to varying degrees so that it’s fairly common to see them in shops and restaurants. Traditionally, the maneki-neko is a Japanese Bobtail. I have a Japanese bobtail cat, but she has a recessive gene so she has a longer tail, but it’s kinked. Frankly, bobtails look weird to me.
Would you like fish or poultry for your inflight meal?

I got this picture from the internet. But I can see that it's a Singaporean company based upon the company name, which ends in Pte Ltd. as the SG QR code link and the fact that the they are selling thing denominated in dollars. The front left of the photo is a red bucket. Red buckets are quite common in Singaporean food stalls, where they are used as cash registers. Typically, the bucket is tied to a pulley that has a counter-balance on it and placed at eye height. However, this food stall has bungie corded it rather than put it on a pulley. Regardless, the bucket method is much faster than a cash register for all-cash businesses. Singapore food stalls - like this fruit stand - are always cash only and you wouldn't dream of bringing a credit card to them.

I'd like to take this opportunity to remind everyone that WE'VE GOT THE AXE!!!
We were given one of those cats as a good luck charm before our long sailing trip in 2020. The little solar powered kitty is still sitting in the cockpit waving at passengers whenever the sun is out.
