Toenail clipping has been mentioned in other threads, but not sure if it was an actual sighting.
So you sampled them to DNA test, right?FWIW, at PER domestic last weekend (the Virgin side) I was about to sit down on one of the banks of chairs. Until I noticed an unattended pile (and I mean pile, it was NOT 3 or 4) of nail clippings on the chair next to it...absolutely disgusting.
Few days ago at SIN business/first lounge, noticed couple of men in shorts. is there any dress code at first/biz lounge or just SIN more relax with dress code?

When news broke a few years ago that an experimental spray-on liquid fabric could become wearable clothing, people were wowed by what sounded more science-fiction than fact. Fast forward a few years and that same technology is on the cusp of being introduced into our daily lives in the form of a host of applications that could very well change the face of art, consumer products and even conservation.
The company behind this technology is Fabrican. Developed by clothing-designer-turned-chemist Dr Manel Torres, who was originally looking for a faster way to produce clothes, the idea came to the self-proclaimed fashion doctor when he went to a friend's wedding and saw someone getting sprayed by silly string, the popular 90s-era toy.
I don't think people should impose their ideas of appropriate clothes on others. As long as clothes are clean and not torn and ragged, what does it matter? I am much more interested in behaviour than clothes. I have seen some annoying, loud mouthed behaviour from people in suits. Disclaimer - I tend to dress up a bit when travelling as I enjoy looking "nice", but Mr FM is more a jeans and t-shirt person. We travel only for pleasure and as Mr FM has been semi retired for 25 years, he refuses to wear anything resembling business attire. Four years ago I made him pack a jacket and tie, so we could go to High tea at the Ritz in London and he whined constantly about the necessity My "nice" clothes would not be business attire - I don't own any, but pretty dresses or a casual outfit. I would not wear shorts, because at my age that would be an ugly sight, but if someone else wants to, especially in a hot climate like Singapore, that is fine by me!
You've got to remember, that international lounges are where people are getting comfortable* for a longish - and in the case of SIN - probably overnight flight. So you find, particularly in the international lounges, people dress for comfort for the flight rather than dressing up for the lounge. Either that, or they're off to HKT etc on Jetstar going from hot and humid to hot and humid . In either case, most people in shorts are usually have reasonably dressy shorts anyway.
* what THEY find comfortable, as an individual preference, I don't want to start a long debate over whether suit pants/jeans are more comfortable than shorts, nor want to get into a debate about the safety of wearing shorts on a flight.
