In an email to Stomp, the Stomper wrote:
“Few weeks back, my mum, dad and my little niece was on their way to lunch at Toa Payoh Central, when this weird thing happened.
“My dad was in one of the shops there buying something, while my mom and niece were standing outside the shop.
“Then came this lady with a walking 3-point stick and shiny black hair. She was also carrying a handbag.
“She stopped in front of my mum.
“She was asking for $2 and kept staring at my mum.
“My mum had her hands full with NTUC plastic bags and was looking after my small niece and thus, my mother did not give her any money and walked away.
“My small niece looked back and said the lady’s eyes turned blood red then. She had an angry face and kept uttering something.
“My small niece was scared and asked my mum to just give her $2…but, when my mom turned back the lady had disappeared.
“They did not bother much about what happened and went to have lunch.
“Once my parents and small niece reached home, my dad felt uneasy and vomited.
“The next morning, my mum vomited non-stop and kept crying saying that her head was so pain.
“We thought it was food poisoning, thus we called the ambulance down and my mum got admitted to the hospital.
“My mum was warded a week: 12 bottles of blood were collected as well as her spine fluids as doctors suspected mum might have brain cancer or HIV.
“But nearly a week plus after my mum was admitted, doctors can’t actually figure out what happened to her as they checked that my mum was healthy inside out.
“The doctors later agreed to discharge my mum after much disagreement with my family to her keep her in the hospital longer.
“Mum kept vomiting and was crying in pain constantly. She felt the tension in her head.
“We had no choice but to bring her to a traditional witchdoctor. Mum was cured then..”
