ARE we becoming a nudist colony? Early this week, a man strutted stark naked into a McDonald's at Queensway to order a cup of coffee.
Just yesterday, a woman paraded in public in all her butt-naked glory - and even boarded a bus in broad daylight.
Witnesses who were present at Bedok told Lianhe Wanbao that they saw a middle-aged woman taking off her clothes piece by piece as she was approaching a bus stop along Bedok Ave 1 on Wednesday evening.
The woman was first spotted at Block 302. While making her way to a bus stop in the rain, witnesses said she stopped halfway, put her bag down on the ground and took off every single piece of clothing she had on her.
The Chinese evening daily reported that the bus stop was crowded at that point in time as well and her jaw-dropping stint caused many to stare at her in disbelief.
The woman continued to walk to the bus stop, as if nothing had happened.
Five minutes later, bus service number 22 approached and witnesses said she casually strolled through the crowd to board the bus.
Upon seeing the naked woman boarding the bus, the driver immediately closed all the doors and called the police.
While waiting for the authorities to arrive, the driver went into an "emergency" mode and instructed all male passengers to move to the front half of the bus.
He then instructed the naked woman to move to the back of the bus and positioned the female passengers around her.
One of them even took off her jacket and offered it to the naked woman, who was led away by the police when they arrived at the scene.
The episode lasted for about 45 minutes.
[I thought the bus driver was remarkably pro-active. I wonder if he's from China. :-) ]
