May all forms of life in the universe be safe, happy,healthy and well taken care of.


May all beings in the air, on land, in the water be safe, happy, healthy and well taken care of.

pillar post box 01

You may be able to spot this pillar post box at the Fullerton Heritage Gallery at The Fullerton Hotel.  But these are the last two left since 1873, which were specially shipped from Great Britain.  These special pillar post boxes feature the EIIR (Elizabeth II Regina) British Royal Cipher on its door as symbol of the ruling monarchy at that time when the pillar post boxes were produced.

In 2001, the Fullerton Hotel has transformed himself from a General Post Office to a super star Hotel.  It was during that time that the post box was preserved as his iconic memories!

The other pillar post box is still serving the public outside Singapore Philatelic Museum.  It stands in front of the museum welcoming people from all over the world.

Is a numerical figure prominent in this particular row of buildings?


A closer look can make one guess what the number is?  Though, the view might be block by some building beneath.

Conrad Centennial Singapore Hotel

Yes, it is number 13.  This is on the exterior of Conrad Centennial Singapore.  The number 13 in Cantonese coincidently sounds like “实生”, and it means “sure to survive” or some interpret it as “sure to prosper”.  However, this could be tittle-tattle, the number 13 could have belonged to a Friday!
