Stomper Lau Lup was waiting for a bus in front of Block 114 Hougang Avenue 1 on Jan 15 when he saw something strange growing on a nearby tree.

Upon looking closer, he realised that it was fungi but he was spooked at what they looked like.

"It looked like ghostly pale lifeless hands with arms sticking out from the tree trunk as if they are trying to get out from the tree," said the Stomper.

"I kind of like the texture and shape of the fungi.

"I wonder if it is rare in Singapore as I have never come across this species."
