Possibility of pirates entering Sentosa?

Post by digitaltucr » Wed, 18 Mar 2020 10:57 am

If you live in an apartment in Sentosa, would there be a possibility of pirates entering Sentosa since there had been a few cases of piracy in Singapore straits albeit thwarted?

I suspect the only "pirates" going to make landfall in Singapore will be the affluent Indonesians that caught corona over there, keen to throw their money around here in order to enjoy Singapore's superior health care.

Sort of reverse-piracy if you will.

I believe Sg has a lot of cameras, some visible (e.g East Coast Park) but many hidden, to catch smugglers and other illegal activity. I suspect if you are a pirate, there are easier pickings elsewhere.

Interesting question considering the OP is posting from a Hyderabad IP address.

Generally sounds quite safe here?
