Fortune-telling boom spells gloom for some

Fortune-telling boom spells gloom for some



Every time Chinese New Year rolls around, housewife Lim Gek Poh makes it a point to take her husband and two children to the same fortune-teller in Waterloo Street, Singapore.

"Just before New Year is the best time for us to 'change our luck' and find out what we should avoid during the coming year," said Madam Lim, 49, in Mandarin.

She is one of hundreds of Chinese Singaporeans who make the annual pilgrimage to over a dozen fortune-tellers plying their trade along Waterloo Street in the Bugis area.

These elderly Chinese men set up their makeshift booths with nothing more than a stool and a battered suitcase of fortune-telling paraphernalia.

Despite the festive cheer these fortune-tellers add to the area, a small group of shop owners and members of the public are seeing red over what they say is overcrowding.

According to nearby stall owners, the human traffic generated by these fortune-tellers has doubled over the past two years.

Fortune telling is to be taken as reference only. Also must beware of those fake ones too.

Alamak. If fortune-telling is true, then they themselves can be resting at home, with money flowing into their pockets.
