Singaporeans, take heed.
Omens of this sort in Orchard Road have become an annual occurrence, after various warnings were sounded last year-end involving a collapsed roof at Hilton Singapore hotel, decorations and a Christmas tree catching fire, a falling tree and a power outage.
Just a few weeks ago, Singtel Internet went down island-wide, as their building is located at Somerset.
One Singaporean, Jian Gui, said these signs are definitely by Lee Kuan Yew as a way to tell Singaporeans he still has their interests at heart: “Lee Kuan Yew’s house is just at Oxley Road. The nearest place he can send out mass warnings is definitely Orchard Road.”
“He wants to tell Singaporeans to ready themselves.”
Other Singaporeans said these warnings could be in response to unresolved issues in Singapore that Lee Kuan Yew would like to attend to and he is trying to force the hand of the authorities.
One other local, Shao Tiao Ta, said: “These warnings will carry on unabated until Lee Kuan Yew’s 38 Oxley Road house is demolished just as he had wished.”
“If his will is to be defied anymore, be prepared for the whole of Orchard Road to be razed to the ground.”
