S’poreans blame PAP, Vivian Balakrishnan for hailstorm

Posted on 25 June 2013

Others blame Indonesia’s bomohs.


Parts of western Singapore was pelted by hail on Tuesday after storms summoned by Indonesian bomohs brought about overcast skies that unleashed its fury upon our tiny sovereign state.

Hail as hard as any hard-on known to man and the size of marbles have struck people and their pets on the head and threatened to smash windows and dent cars.


No immediate injuries were reported except one guy who suffered diarrhoea after he swallowed three pieces of hail he picked up off the floor.

Singaporeans were quick to take to social media to bash the PAP, blaming them for bringing about catastrophic weather conditions.

One Singaporean, Ta Ma De, said: “Where is Vivian Balakrishnan? How come he cannot control the weather?”

Others who are taking a more measured approach are blaming the Indonesians.

A local, Zho Gong Tao, said: “Wah their bomoh damn power sia.”

    Seriously don’t blame everything on the government. Don’t do cloud seeding then complaint about haze. Do then now complaint about the hail rain. Please wake up people. There is no perfect for all situation.

    See something fishy about the names of the persons giving the comments?

    “Where is Vivian Balakrishnan? How come he cannot control the weather?”

    Pretty obvious this is a slur against the Opposition supporters.
    One theory is that this comment was fabricated by PAP supporters themselves who then accuse the Opposition supporters for making such silly comments.

    Before commenting please realise this is a satire news site. That means that it’s not real. It’s a sarcastic joke/response to real news.

    If you didn’t even look at this website’s tagline, the names in the article should have given the joke away. Don’t just read like some blur sotong!
