The Straits Times weather report is all the rage among Singaporean netizens these days, all thanks to a newly hired weather intern whose epigrammatic tweets have lightened many a stormy weather.
According to a netizen, who provided a number of screenshots showcasing the new weatherman's tweets, ST tweets began taking on a quirky, punny character that seemed at odds with the usual "boring" style of the national newspaper.
Some netizens, boring as some people are, could not make up their mind about the change.
Many others supported the change and wanted more "personality" from the aging newspaper brand.
Things are looking up for those who have been clamouring for this weatherman to stay. It looks like he is back on the job for another run.
A reader points out the hypocrisy of Vivian Balakrishnan's statement that "it is the height of national shame for the armed forces of any country to turn its arms against its own people."
