A resident living at Block 620 Bedok Reservoir Road, Ms Wu, moved away from her home after living there for 13 years due to the “unbearable” noise of her neighbour’s parrot, according to Shin Min Daily News.
The 45-year-old woman said that it all started about 1 year ago after her neighbour moved in next door and their parrot would squawk and keep her away.
The bird was apparently kept in a cage that was placed in the corridor, and the neighbours would whistle at the bird to tease it, causing it to squawk.
It then started to become a frequent occurrence, with the family whistling from 7 pm onwards to tease the parrot, who would then squawk in response, going on through the night until about 10 pm.
She found it difficult to sleep and didn’t say anything at first because she wanted to preserve the harmony.
But she finally raised the issue with the owners after the noise got worse and they then brought their parrot inside their home.
But the noise got even worse when the owners would tease the bird early in the morning, and it got unbearable for her and her child who had to go to school in the morning and she had to go to work.
She said that she frequently couldn’t;t go to sleep the whole night due to the noise and dreaded going home after work because she wouldn’t be able to rest.
She felt tortured until she decided to move out.
