They bemoan the loss of boring predictability of no rainfall.
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.”
