Arrived

Last week we finally packed our stuff from Dubai and arrived in Singapore this Monday. We're living out of our suitcase at the moment & its not easy finding an apartment in Singapore. All we've managed to do so far is make a checklist of 'must-haves' for our home (proximity to a MRT station, proximity to work & a decent size are at the top check-boxes for now).

In the meanwhile, I've managed to collect a lot of fengshui charms for the apartment (which we haven't yet found). Singapore's China Town is full of them! The picture on the left is the biggest fengshui charm of the city; its called the "Fountain of Wealth".

The 'Fountain of Wealth' is surrounded by five high-rises representing the five fingers of a hand, and the Fountain itself symbolises the ring in the palm of the hand. The water flowing into the ring is a symbol of fengshui good luck. Dont want to get superstitious here, but if you see the recent boom in this city/ country the charm seems to be working :)
