Singaporeans Are a Superstitious Lot in the Workplace

By: Gerald Goh

No matter how secular Singaporeans may profess to be, the truth is that a large proportion of Singapore workers (1,009 out of 3,568, or 28 per cent) ) believe in extra-worldly forces to help them get ahead in the rat race.

According to a survey carried out by the JobsCentral Group in mid-2013, 46 per cent of these 1,009 respondents admitted to carrying and/or displaying a religious item during work hours and 40 per cent keep a personal charm in the office, all in a bid to enhance their success at work.

What Lies Ahead in the Year of the Dragon

By Farhan Shah

It is the year of the Dragon and for the Chinese, as well as anyone who believes in the mystical qualities of this flying leviathan, 2012 is the perfect year to get married, give birth to a kid or if they’re feeling particularly productive, achieve both at the same time.

According to Ken Koh, Director of House of Feng Shui, 2012 is the year of the Water Dragon. This means that there will be “a bit of disharmony this year” due to the clash of two elements – Water (as 2012 is the year of the Water Dragon) and Earth (as the Dragon possesses a dominant Earth element). In visual terms, imagine a tidal wave of water crashing against an immoveable object like a dam.

Also, contrary to popular belief, the Dragon year doesn’t actually begin on the Lunar New Year but on 4 February 2012, at 6.24pm.
