Run when you see an approaching snake or continue to eat your beehoon?

One old man did the latter even when a big python was heading towards his table, probably lured by the aroma of the fried noodles.

A video posted on Every Day Sg today (June 5) shows a commotion when the creepy visitor made a grand entrance at a coffeeshop in Bukit Gombak while the man remained unflinching.

Curious customers surged forward to look at the snake sliding into the outdoor seating area of the coffeeshop while some whipped out their mobile phones to film it.

The creature was heading towards the table where the old man was seated. But surprisingly, he continued to eat his beehoon as he watched the approach of the snake with no sign of panic while frantic customers scrambled for safety.

But not wanting the visitor to come any nearer to him, another man grabbed a chair and tried to scare it away.

It sprung at him in retaliation, but the man jumped back in time as he dropped the chair. That's when the clip ended.

We're not sure what happened after that and when the incident happened.

But one thing is sure: We will run off with our plate of beehoon just like the London man who fled the terror attacks on Sunday while clutching his mug of beer.
