Singapore Haunted captures image of female ghost at the legendary Yellow Tower at East Coast Park

Singapore Haunted, a popular web TV series produced by R3LOAD Network featuring a team of paranormal investigators exploring some of the most haunted locations in the country, has revealed new amazing evidence of the paranormal at East Coast Park's legendary Amber Tower also know as the Yellow Tower.

In its latest investigation, the team from Singapore Haunted returns to East Coast Park's Yellow Tower for a special episode. Many years ago, a girl and her boyfriend went to the Yellow Tower late at night. A group of men then beat up the boyfriend and went on to rape the girl. The girl died during the incident. Apparently the ghost of the girl still haunts the tower till today.

Last year, the team left powder on the stairs of the tower and captured amazing footprints believed to be from the same female ghost. The evidence was aired in an episode which went on to make headlines in Singapore.

For their latest episode, Singapore Haunted Yellow Tower Revisited Special, the team decided to return to the Yellow Tower after receiving numerous emails from viewers who watched the episode of the investigation held there last year. Viewers claimed that the paranormal entity is still residing in the tower.

Singapore Haunted producer/director IZ Darson was surprised with the team's discovery this time. He says, “We've done this show for 2 seasons and we are about to do our third and we've encountered many different types of paranormal activity but the evidence we gathered at the Yellow Tower this time has to be the most compelling evidence that points to the existence of the paranormal.”

Highlights of the investigation include this incredible thermal image of a paranormal entity. Thermal imaging detects radiation in the infrared range of the electromagnetic spectrum. This pic shows the thermal image of a ghostly figure on the second floor of the Yellow Tower. It was captured right after one of the investigators claimed to see a female ghost which appeared to him for a few seconds. (Video time code: 15:34)

The team used various scientific equipment like night vision and thermal cameras, digital infrared thermometer, audio recorders and the K-II meter which is a form of Electromagnetic Field (EMF) detector. Paranormal investigators believe that paranormal entities emit EMF and it's this EMF that can be detected by the K-II meter.

Other incredible evidence include 2 EVP (electronic voice phenomenon) recordings of the voice of the female entity. The first voice was recorded when the investigators ask the entity why didn't she leave the tower. A voice answered: “Home” (Video time code: 11:41). The second voice was recorded after the investigators asked how old she was when she died at the tower. The reply was: “Young” (Video time code: 13:26). Both EVPs were followed by intense EMF activity recorded by the K-II meter.

Donald Trump's crazy tweets used in Hitler parody video

Like many people all over the world, I was watching the US Presidential Election results live on TV and also following it on Twitter. When it was announced that Obama had won, Donald Trump went on a Twitter tirade, apparently very unhappy with the result. My first reaction was, why not use his crazy tweets on a Hitler parody video. So here's what I did. Enjoy.

In the video above, Hitler reacts to CNN announcing Barack Obama has won the US Presidential election beating Mitt Romney. Featuring tweets by Donald Trump! This video is a parody of Downfall, a 2004 drama film directed by Oliver Hirschbiegel, depicting the final ten days of Adolf Hitler's reign of Nazi Germany in 1945.

Japanese comic about a boy who drinks oil and full of pimples

I was reading this Japanese comic (in English) that was sent to me. No idea what the title is but the comic is about a girl who lives in a house that is covered with fats. She has a brother who loves drinking oil and one day he developed pimples all over his face. It's a very strange comic but I love it. Maybe I should turn this into a movie.
