Deputy Prime Minister and Coordinating Minister for Economic and Social Policies Tharman Shanmugaratnam - he of poetic poems and broad shoulders laden with responsibilities - has outdone himself again.

This time, he single-handedly transformed a run-of-the-mill tree planting event in the Jurong Lake District last Sunday (Oct. 25) into one that will live long in the memory.

The sudden outpour of water meant for the tree caught many by surprise, including one National Development Minister.

Check out Minister Lawrence Wong's stunned like vegetable reaction.
