Within the past few months, several incidents occurred in Bedok Reservoir where several bodies were pulled out of the water. A total of 6 accidents occurred in the waters, where at total of 7 people were recovered. Only 1 of these people was lucky to have survived. The others perished in the waters.
There is a saying among the Chinese that: One is an incident, two is an accident, three is a coincidence and if there is four or more then there absolutely must be more than to meets the eye! It is not so simple any more.
Do you believe in this saying?
In our first article, Bedok Reservoir Cursed?, we had discussed whether this place is cursed.
In our follow up posting What is wrong with Bedok Reservoir?, we have proposed that the incidents in Bedok Reservoir are very much likely of a coincidence and convenience. But unfortunately, another case occurred over the past weekend!
As the situation seem to somewhat becomes more serious, Team Asia Paranormal decided to take a look and explore the place itself.

Life buoys can be found quite easily throughout the reservoir
We had in mind this time that there could be a possibility of Feng Shui problems; hence we brought along our Feng Shui equipments and some gadgets to check if what we suspect is indeed really the case.

If you can still remember, we had previously mentioned of some sharp object blinding the eyes of the human, base the map of Bedok Reservoir.
It had somewhat seem that Lucia Lu the China geomancer had that 1 or 2 point in common with team Asia Paranormal's own geomancer, which is about the human head.
In fact there is even an old rumour that we had learnt in which the source and validity cannot be traced and confirmed. This old rumour speaks of that several years ago some Feng Shui master mentioned before that bedok is not suitable for humans accommodations. So is everything coming true now? That we leave it to you.
The so called "Dragon Throat" and "Sharp object"
When we arrived, the reservoir does indeed seem to be convenient as there are bus stops and residential areas nearby.
But however, we do notice that there were many life buoys available at many points. The place overall does seem to be well lighted up.
We also spotted a petrol car patrolling the reservoir. There were many night joggers in the place even up to the wee hours. There were people fishing, having picnic and all sort merry making activities at the place. We even saw quite a few couples having a stroll, and dating there.

Even though it was late at night, the place was still peaceful, beautiful and quite busy. Hence to really commit suicide totally unseen, unknown, unheard and undetected, it really does not seem too possible, even though and despite that the place is too accessible and convenient.
We didn't really detect anything wrong with the place in the beginning. This was based on our gut feeling though. It was just a ordinary park and reservoir.
A platform. More orbs captured.
We later proceeded to put our Feng Shui stuffs to a test, it does somehow seem to have a little problem on the place. The architecture is not really built to Feng Shui concepts and theory, generally as to speak.
The team members using the Feng Shui measuring tape
This measuring tape measures whether a certain length, width or height is according to good or bad Feng Shui. We measured the fence and barriers of the platform and found out they did not really indicate good Feng Shui.
We had even tried to match it with western technology with the use of Ghost Radar, an iPhone app. This app supposedly tries to detect any electromagnetic signals in the surrounding areas; however it is up to your own conclusions about what the signals really are.

We eventually reach to the sharp object area that we had mentioned in our earlier posting.
The "sharp object" area. Directly opposite is Temasek Poly
Perhaps a coincidence or perhaps not, the negative energy or the so called Yin was really too strong over there. We have received a lot of readings in that area. The Ghost Radar indicated a strong signal while the compass indicated negative energy.

Something wrong with the energy in this area?
It seems that the possibility of accidents taking place at that spot had a very high chance. Even without our equipments and gadgets, at a glance, the place does not feel right. The place was rather deserted and dark, compared to the other areas.
To make things worst, we had discovered some unusual offerings in that area. The usual way of how Chinese make offerings to the dead had a lot of similarities and it is not like what we had seen. There were bowls of cookies and cups of what we think are soft drinks. However, something was missing and that was joss sticks and candles.
There is something too wrong about the offering and it very difficult to explain and elaborate. It is just very unusual.
We also spotted a floating object in the water nearby. To us, it seems like a ball or a floating buoy. However, the weird thing is that there was only one in the water alone. We were still not certain of what exactly is that object we saw.

We also took a close up photograph of the weird offerings, but mysteriously the photo did not show up on our cameras later. Unfortunately, we are unable to provide that here.
As we were examining the place closely, suddenly we heard noise in that area which sounded like something had fallen or jumped into the water. Although we looked deep and used all our flashlights to light up that dark area, there was nothing we could see.
Was it someone just threw something into the water? One of the team members suggested it could be a frog jumping into the water. But she later pointed out that we had walked quite a distance round the reservoir, and it was the first time we heard frogs splashing into the water.
Or was it the incident somewhat “repeating itself”? Did the spirit of the suicide victims decided to repeat the process of jumping into the water? The feeling of the place is too problematic and wrong. Finally we had decided to leave the place.
At the carpark area, I then revealed to my team that I thought the floating object in the water looked like a head from a certain angle, but I was not too sure about it.
Team Asia Paranormal then packed up and left the reservoir.
Currently, the number of bodies pulled out from that reservoir totals 7 and we definitely do not wish that there will be 8 body or even more than that from this reservoir. This is definitely not anything good for Singapore.
