i was on my way home from the airport that night and couldn’t believe my luck. i am a very inexperienced driver and that was probably my third time driving at night. Just my luck to be caught in the windstorm and heavy downpour. i could barely see the road ahead and there was nothing i could do but to risk exiting the highway – i couldn’t tell how far away the car behind me was. So glad i managed to reach home in one piece.
And Alex, if you’re reading this, don’t say i was just being ‘kua zhang’, here’s the proof!
“Singapore was hit by the Sumatra Squall between 11pm and midnight – bringing parts of the island to a standstill. The fierce gusts resulted in over 30 fallen trees, 150 damaged trees, a dozen damaged cars, 400 calls to the police and a toppled construction crane.” – I-S Magazine
