The unexplained had happened again. This time it involved a girl having the best of her time along a prominent 2km beach stretch in Sentosa Island, Singapore. Siloso Beach as it is called is the paradise of beach volleyball enthusiasts, diners and shoppers but it has its mysteries. Sentosa Island was once known as Pulau Blakang Mati (Island of the Dead), changing many names through the centuries before staying put with the public suggested name which means peace and tranquility in Malay. I wondered if it has something to do with this recent case since the island formerly housed Second World War POWs.
It was a bright and sunny afternoon on 4 July 2009 weekend when the incident occurred. No one would suspect any foul play as it was normal for anyone along the beach sports filled stretch to be spotted in sport bras or Bermuda pants. A girl frolicking under the sun had something more than a sport bra tan line. She had one child hand sized print and a set of adult hand prints on her back.
Worst still, the adult hand prints had long finger nails which were not a norm for most Singaporeans. How would you explain those mysterious prints then? No one knows… do you?
Based on the family’s belief in seeking advice from a Chinese temple, it was believed that a “child ghost” tried to push her into the sea but without any success. Eventually, an “adult ghost” tried to do the same but failed as well as she was strongly guarded spiritually by her “invisible” guardian angel. Believe it or not, here are the proofs on her body. Look at those long nails on the hand prints. Shocking!!!
There are drowning incidents practically at all the beaches throughout the world. Is this the real explanation behind all the cases? I’ll leave it to you to decide…I'm thirsty for a drink now. Would you be kind enough to treat me?
