    Is there a need to add the last para to say “to have fun” as I do drive past that road daily to go to work.? The photograph is also inappropriate as obviously there is normally hardly any soul around that area at that time of the day. More information on how the war relic was discovered and what happened after that would be more news worthy.

  2. And why is this post here?

    Fake one lah! Some ministers got caught having fun there! In order not to let public know. They ask police to block the roads!

    Say anything that is found there, nobody cares. Come watch another Wayang Show. This is to arouse and divert interest, they can bring anything and claim to be the largest relic found, but later apologize, to say sorry its mistaken identity. As is known they are the most expert in saying “sorry”. Maybe this is also to divert attention on bombardment of the national conversation issues. Futher more, what is so serious. so as to cordon off the roads. They just need to cordon off the location where items are found and if neccessary extend required areas. Another Wayang Show.

    There is another “war relic” (living) along Oxley Road. It is presently guarded by Gurkha soldiers. It has outlived its usefulness and should be “removed” asap (in GE2016) for “disposal”.

    Big mountain out of a molehill. What to do guys, have to do business elsewhere for the time being. No one knows how many more ‘war relics’ are lying around waiting to explode. Heheheh.
