What you'll do

“Huat Ah!” Understand the significance of Fortune, Prosperity and Luck in the everyday lives of the Chinese, and have your fortune told through your palm, birth date, or Mina the parakeet! Visit the famous Kwan Im (“Goddess Of Mercy”) Thong Hood Cho temple, and join me in seeking divine direction in life through fortune sticks and moon-blocks. Appreciate the role of Chinese deities and worship practices in the household as we explore the artifact shops full of charms, lucky stones and religious wares. Sit down with a fortune teller and have your fortune told by the ancient practice of palmistry, “Bazi” (derived from the moment in time of your birth), or even parrot astrology. Listen to stories of how multi-national corporations in Singapore used Feng Shui or geomancy to improve their business or drive away bad luck, while we munch on some “lucky” local pastries or dessert. Ready to take a ‘peck’ into your future.....?

Group size is kept at 4 (or 5) for a really intimate and small group experience.
