Bilateral relations between Singapore and Indonesia have warmed up today.

This after Singaporeans from all walks of life, regardless if they are asthmatic, have come out to thank Indonesia for bringing rain and mixing it with PSI level 130 haze on Tuesday having let it hover around PSI 100 to 200 the past few days.

One Singaporean, Hen Gan En, said he feels personally indebted to Indonesia for giving Singaporeans back hazy wet smoke: “I never thought I’d see rain and haze at the same time.”

“I would like to thank Indonesia for blessing Singapore with this unusual mixture. It is wonderful to see acid rain again.”

“Sorry, if we were ever ungrateful.”

Other Singaporeans said they have taken to openly giving thanks to Indonesia in public.

One Singaporean, Shao Xiang, said: “I am burning joss sticks and joss paper to thank Indonesia for their blessings.”

“This is the least I can do for them.”

“Thank you.”

Rain was indented a week ago and it fell right on the dot (pun on little red dot intended).

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who were rudely awakened from their slumber as water kept splashing through their bedroom windows, noticed that the inclement weather that Singapore indented a week ago arrived right on time on Aug. 9, 2015, just after midnight.

Strong howling winds accompanied by thundery rain fell across Singapore north, south, east and west on her 50th national day in a timely manner to pay tribute to her founding prime minister Lee Kuan Yew in a fitting fashion.

One Singaporean, Seah Da Yu, said: “There was no doubt the heavens were crying for Lee Kuan Yew because they miss him and they know Singaporeans miss him. This is the best way our founding prime minister can be remembered.”

“This also shows the PAP government is so powerful, they can control the weather.”

However, not all Singaporeans are satisfied.

Another Singaporean, Jin Kao Lat, said even though the rain fell on time, it was not heavy enough to show the true emotion of the nation’s inhabitants: “I appreciate the meteorological gesture, but not enough trees were uprooted and insufficient places were flooded.”

“If Singaporeans are indeed sincere in paying tribute to Lee Kuan Yew, there should have been gale-force winds accompanied by a sprinkling of hail to really show that Singapore is getting over her loss of Lee Kuan Yew in the first national day without his presence.”

“It would be truly memorable if it rained like never before during the National Day Parade and the whole thing is televised live and repeated ad nauseam for effect.”

“This would really help the government with their future tributes to Lee Kuan Yew because they would have the visuals all on film for future use.”

 

 

 

 

 









God: ‘I couldn’t smite Pink Dot with rain as one of those who prayed for foul weather had child out of wedlock’

God: ‘I couldn’t smite Pink Dot with rain as one of those who prayed for foul weather had child out of wedlock’

It would have been hypocritical.

God, the Maker of the Heavens and the Earth, has come out to clarify why he could not fulfill prayers that had asked for Him to make rain fall on the Pink Dot 2015 event held at Hong Lim Park on June 13, 2015.

This after many highly religious people in Singapore were laughed at as they had prayed to God to smite Pink Dot 2015 with rain, but the Almighty did not respond and even provided clear and cool weather for the day’s festivities to be carried out without incident.

The Alpha and Omega said the decision not to smite Pink Dot 2015 with inclement weather boiled down to one simple consideration: Whether the ones living in glass houses were throwing rocks.

The Way, The Truth And The Life said: “I took the views of My flock seriously, as they had asked me to smite Pink Dot 2015 with rain.”

“Smiting is what I do, it is My forte. So there was no doubt I could have easily razed the place to the ground, like how I am razing JEM shopping mall to the ground.”

“But when I considered the various prayers and discovered to My horror that one of those praying, had in fact, had a child out of wedlock, I thought it would be hypocritical to smite Pink Dot and not her, because obviously, she had her own transgressions to pay for.”

“Between homosexuality and letting your ovaries be fertilised by a man who was not your husband, there is no doubt the latter act is worse, because now there is a child who doesn’t have a father and clearly violates My commandment.”

“I can’t stand for that.”

 

So much for religiosity:

Singaporeans from all walks of life with an inability to tolerate variation said the wet and rainy conditions this past week is causing them to miss last month’s dry spell of drought.

Wa Zhao Kng, a Singaporean lady dressed in a white top, said: “I could go out any time of the day last month without worrying about bringing an umbrella. Now, I get drenched even though it was bright and sunny just moments before.”

Singaporeans also said the sudden wet weather is an affront to their sense of predictability and a threat to Singapore’s sovereignty as it affects the country’s productivity.

Qu Ba Sha, a housewife, said: “I hang the clothes out and then want to go downstairs and buy groceries and then it rain and I need to run back up to collect the clothes.”

“This will affect my workflow and it is a burden for the result-oriented.”

Singaporeans from all walks of life with varying levels of tolerance for repetition said they are optimistic about weathering this weekend’s wet and wild rainy conditions.

They said they have a host of activities lined up and places to go to make full use of their time and lives.

Tien See Kee, a local said: “I will be spending my time watching TV like I do every weekend.”

And to get themselves even more busy, some have other options to try.

“I am planning on playing video games,” another Singaporean, Sng Dian Nao, said, “like I do everyday.”

However, instead of wasting time, others have found better ways to spend their waking hours.

“I will spend more quality time at home,” another local, Kun Kah Song, said, “in bed sleeping.”

Employers up in arms but cannot do anything about it.

With unpredictable weather patterns unleashing madness on Singapore’s population, more people are resorting to taking advantage of the torrential downpours and flash floods.

Because if it rains in the morning, it is a good excuse to be late for work.

And according to employers interviewed by New Nation, “rain in the morning” has become the number one reason employees are using to justify sauntering into the office with a curry puff in one hand and hot Milo in the other, at 10.30 a.m. without apologies.

It was reported yesterday that heavy rain resulted in massive floods that caused the MRT East-West line to go tits up.

Many parts of Singapore were also flooded beyond recognition.

But it is not all doom and gloom.

A MRT commuter and Shenton Way office rat, Wah Jin Sian, said: “I get to work late on rainy days and I still get fixed income, so it’s fair game.”

Another Singaporean, Tan Boh Jiak, echoing the same sentiment, said: “Anytime there is a light shower, I’ll call in to my office in advance to tell my boss the public transport system is suffering from PMS.”

“No one can stop me. Not even the PAP.”
