“I was involved in a dancing video at an event for work. It was so awkward yet so funny, and I wanted my colleagues to watch it. So, I sent a mass email with the video attachment, but what I didn’t know was that I had accidentally keyed in the email of a local celebrity that I contacted before…
The thought of her watching the video and wondering what is wrong with me haunts me till today.
What’s worse, we had a company event [on the same day], and everyone – including the CEO – was there. But that didn’t stop me from making a fool out of myself.
I accidentally bumped into someone with a full plate of food in their hands, which then spilled all over the floor right in front of the CEO…
I just wanted to tap out of life.”

“It was ‘friendly match’ day for my floorball team and I was running a little late, so I decided to take a cab. But I was in such a rush that my heavy gear got caught on the door and I fell face flat onto the pavement.
Someone ran over to help me up and I was so touched, that was until I looked up and saw my ex…
I. Was. Mortified.
I got myself together and said ‘Thanks, bye! The game starts in five minutes!’ and dashed away. But as I was crossing the overhead bridge to get to the venue, I noticed he was right behind me.
I started to panic, so I decided to ‘fly’ down the stairs. By ‘fly’, I meant tumbling down to my doom.
The next thing I knew, he was helping me up again. This time I definitely couldn’t run away from him because my ankle was hurting like hell.

“This happened during Chinese New Year last year. My cousins and I were killing time before heading to their house for a family dinner. Out of nowhere, the strap of my new dress decided to tear.
Thank god, we were in the Orchard Road area. I decided to buy a dress I wouldn’t even wear again before I flash my bra to everyone.
I thought that was the worst thing that could happen, but I was wrong. Now, the strap of my bag also decided to snap in the middle of the cross-walk, causing all of my makeup to spill out of my bag and onto the road.
I couldn’t even pick it up in time because the traffic lights at Orchard are so damn fast. Once I was safe at the traffic light, I just stood there crying as I watched my lipsticks get massacred by car tires.”

“I started the day by waking up on the wrong side of the bed. I accidentally tripped on my iPhone’s charging cable and fell.
It was the beginning of a curse because I couldn’t stop falling on my butt or face after that.
When I walked into the bathroom, I slipped on a small puddle of water. When I reached school, I tripped on a tree root and fell in front of everyone rushing to their 9am classes.
During lunch, I tripped on someone’s Milo spill, which ruined my white shirt. After my last class, I tripped on a dustbin on the way out and I stepped on someone’s half-eaten curry puff.
I had never been happier to be on a crowded bus on the way home in my life so the day could end.
But nope, when the bus jerked, the curse decided to take me down and every single commuter with me.
It was like human dominoes!”
