Residents believe couples use Telok Blangah carpark as 'hotel' after finding condoms, used tissues

Residents of Telok Blangah Heights are concerned that the new multi-storey carpark has turned into a ‘hotel’ for some couples.

The incident happened at the multi-storey carpark in front of Block 90 Telok Blangah Street 31, with a Facebook user uploading photos of the mess left by the couple.

The photos show pieces of used tissues and condoms discarded at a corner of the carpark. 

Another netizen also commented on the photos, saying: "This is the third time I’ve seen this.

"The tissues and condoms are always found at the same spot. I also found them here at around 6pm the first two times."

Shin Min Daily News later visited a Housing and Development Board (HDB) block nearby and spoke to residents about the incident.

Some residents said that having sex in the public is degrading to the Singaporean culture. 

Mr Xu, 32, said of his family: "We very rarely look out of the window, so even if people were having sex at the carpark, we wouldn't know. However, I feel such behaviour is totally inappropriate, and should never have happened."

Another resident, Mr Ma, 65, said: "This is getting out of hand. They shouldn’t do this sort of thing in a public setting. This makes the residents uneasy."

He added that the lights of the HDB blocks nearby turn off at around 10pm at night, and the area around the carpark would be dark. 

Said Mr Ma: "I believe they usually do it late in the night when there are fewer people walking around, and it is quieter.

"The area is also very dark, and it’ll be harder to see them."

Reporters visited the top floor of the carpark, where the sex acts were alleged to have taken place, and noted that the area was rather secluded, with few cars parked there.
