My friend complaint about the smell around east coast area. I was around TPY and somerset but did not smell anything so I am guessing it must have been from the sea.

There was a collision between MT Bunga Kelana III (IMO 9178331) and MV Waily (IMO 8221478) at approximately 0603 hours (local time) on 25th of May 2010 in the Maritime Port Authority (MPA) Traffic Separation Scheme (TSS) of the Straits of Singapore, 13 kilometres southeast of Changi East. ;)

An estimate 2,500 tonnes of crude oil is beloved to have been spilled and that could have explained the smell. The Aframax class oil tanker, MT Bunga Kelana III (IMO 9178331), received the brunt of the impact and was damaged rather significantly. :think:
