The Singapore Tourism Board has revealed the existence of the supernatural through their Instagram account.

This after they published a photograph of a Nonya ghost with her head turned 180 degrees backwards. The picture shows the Nonya ghost pulling a man to the pits of hell as an elderly man observes them in amusement.

The Internet has been buzzing with theories about the photograph taken at Haw Par Villa and what it could mean for the future of Singaporean tourism.

A spokesperson for the authorities, Boh Moh, said: “The photograph of Ms Pon Tianak was taken to promote the next phase of our tourism strategy. After Garden City and City in a Garden, Singapore’s future catchphrase will be Garden in a Graveyard.”

“We plan to leverage the worldwide interest in the supernatural. For instance, the haze which envelops our country every year will thrill fans of the popular horror video game series, Silent Hill.”

“Tourists will be impressed by the value for money which Singapore has to offer. Instead of visiting a single house built on top of a burial ground in America, they can come to Singapore and visit entire housing estates built on top of cemeteries.”

Boh Moh continued: “We’re very happy to have the cooperation of Ms Pon Tianak, and hope she can continue to assist us in future photoshoots. Her ability to turn her head 180 degrees allows us to show off all parts of her kebaya, and her ayam buah keluak is spectacular.”

 

 

 

 

 











Actor in viral STB video says pregnancy kit was really used to make scene more authentic

Actor in viral STB video says pregnancy kit was really used to make scene more authentic

He believes this was why the video ad has a touch of realism and was so well-received in Singapore.

The male lead actor in the highly-viral Singapore Tourism Board video, showing a lady and him visiting the island-state, has spoken out.

Ramos M. Papaos, a popular actor in the Southeast Asian region, said he is glad he is receiving so much media attention and newly converted fans overnight in Singapore.

Speaking about his newfound fame, the 34-year-old Papaos who has mixed Spanish blood in his family line, said: “I’d like to thank Singaporeans for their kind support for my short clip. I’ve received many Facebook messages overnight and I heard that the STB video has received many success in Singapore causing Facebook and YouTube to crash and accidentally deleting the video.”

“I would like to thank everyone for their support, especially those who put the video back online, and I am glad I tried my best by putting my acting skills to the test.”

Papos also led on that the director of the STB video — an aspiring 17-year-old filmmaker — had wanted to convey a sense of realism in the few short minutes of the video ad and made several critical decisions that led to its eventual virality.

Papos said: “Lisa Marisso, the actress, was not very close to me at first when we started out filming. To make it appear like we are a real couple who are natural and comfortable with each other, with emotional connection, the director insisted we spend more time in Singapore together even after shooting hours.”

“The director even bluffed us that there was not enough budget to make the film with proper dubbing of our voices, so we were told we had to spend the night together in the same hotel room to cut costs!”

“But this measure did eventually bring us closer and what the audience see on screen, is our real sizzling chemistry.”

However, the most crucial aspect of the video was to make the actors and audience believe in its premise.

Papos said the director’s master stroke was to convince the actors that what was happening on film was happening in real life and the script was so closely guarded, no one knew what the ending was: “The director made the actress use the pregnancy kit just before we shot the scene and no one was sure what was going on because the script was kept a secret.”

“So when you watch the video and see the look of surprise on my face when I saw a used pregnancy kit in a gift box, that is the real look of surprise because I caught a whiff of urine.”

Singapore Tourism Board should add these suggested things in.

shiok-000

The Singapore Tourism Board has a new marketing video out. (Video available at the end.)

It is two-and-a-half minutes of scenes showing things in Singapore that make locals — and hopefully tourists — go “Shiok!”

The various states of shiok featured in the video occur when people eat ice kacang or get rubbed down during massage, among many other buttock-clenching moments of excitement.

But the shiok scenes do not include clips of paedophilia and underage prostitution, which are on the rise in Singapore.

However, to help the Singapore Tourism Board, here are some of New Nation‘s recommended shiok moments of Singapore to help draw more tourists.

1. Singapore tropical climate ensures that she is like a hot woman — wet, wild and unpredictable! Shiok!
