Violet Fenning is a celebrity in Singapore… here is her story.
This incident took place back at the old Mediacorp campus in 2016. I had wanted a photo of myself in my sponsored outfit to credit the sponsors. So, I put the camera on timer mode and posed for a few shots. While I was doing that, a friend who was with me, remarked, “Why is it suddenly so dark outside?” I didn’t think much of her comment then.
The next day, while on my journey to Genting with my family, I started going through the camera’s images to delete the unwanted ones. When I saw this photo and zoomed in on it, I was scared speechless. My husband, who was sitting next to me, had never believed in the supernatural until that moment.
When I returned to Singapore, I sent the photo to Marcus Chin, asking if he knew of any shifu who could help. But he accidentally sent the photo to a group chat, and the photo got circulated. Some people tried to analyse it for evidence of Photoshop, but it was found to be authentic. I don’t even know how to use the Mei Tu Xiu Xiu app properly!
Since the apparition in the photo appeared in period clothes, the wardrobe department was asked if anybody had borrowed a costume of that kind. No one had.
When the photo reached Quan Yi Fong, she rang me up to say, “Please tell me it’s not real. I started crying when I saw it! Now I’m scared to go to work”. A few hours later, she called me again and said, “I asked around and, actually, in our line of work, it’s a good omen. You’ll be blessed.” That made me feel better.
I suspect that at the moment the photo was taken, there happened to be a freak combination of factors that allowed worlds to intersect. I haven’t experienced anything since then!
