Annoying man with no fish in an empty dish telling you to pay up if you want to read more from SCMP. In a world which every bit of news is free except SCMP, how can I read its news for free? Here's my guide!!!

1. Go to a coffee shop.

I have seen people in Pacific Coffee actually cutting out the Pacific Coffee coupons to get a free cup of Pacific Coffee coffee.

2. Borrow it from a friend / colleague.

OMG!!! Big News!!

These news never get old.

3. Read those ordered by your company.

It's completely free, and you might be able to take home a tonne of old papers and sell.

4. Ask someone who has subscribed to it online for their login and password.

Username is 'username', Password is 'password'

If they don't mind sharing their their username being 'username' and password being 'password' to you.

5. Go to your browser and clear the cookies!!!

This works, but you will have to reenter all logins and passwords.

6. Use Chrome's Incognito Window to bypass it!!!!!!!

Keep repeating this step when you have no more articles to read

According to HongWrong,

"To bypass this limit, simply open in an ‘incognito window’ in Google’s Chrome browser. Again, you will be limited to just four articles, but you can reset this by closing the window and re-opening another incognito window…"
