Getting Feverish about Dengue – Part II

Just when I thought I had had enough of dengue, I saw an article that has forced me to write about the insects that (unlike the rest of us) do not fear the Internal Security Act.

Our media seem to have realized the flaw in suggesting that rising humid temperature is one of the causes. Because then hor, how do they explain that other cities in the same latitude as Singapore that do not have a dengue problem? So three more theories have been suggested....

Still, there is no theory that our gahmen do not know about how to fight the dengue. Maybe there is no evidence to advance such a claim. But substantiation of above theories does not require much legwork.

Theory 1: Fumigation is not effective
Reporter: We fumigate every area of Singapore until we think that the haze has come again from Indonesia. How come you still survive ah?
Aedes mosquito: Bodoh lah you. You dun know we have your fumigation schedules on our palpus meh?

Theory 2: Foreign workers may have brought in new strand
Reporter: When you come to Singapore ah?
Aedes mosquito: Last time hor, after you kill us, we got no choice. When you decided to get foreign talent for Singapore, we piggy-back also lor.

Theory 3: Successful gahmen initiative 35 years ago have made us less immune
Reporter: 35 years ago, we kill all of you. Den how come you so effective now ah?
Aedes mosquito: Just like all of you, we go for retraining. There is boom in our job market at the moment.
