Wishing at the Fountain of Wealth

I have always believed in wishing wells, lucky coins and the like so i was really amazed when Erman and I visited the Fountain of Wealth in Suntec City, Singapore. The Fountain of Wealth is the mother of all wishing wells! I found out that it is even included in the Guinness book of records as the largest fountain in the world. Cool, huh?

The fountain is located at the basement of the Suntec compound. Visitors can make a wish by going around the main ring 3 times while touching the water with their right hand. It is best to visit the fountain in the afternoon and then stick around until 6pm when they turn on the water for the big ring. It would have been cool to make a wish again (and get wet!) when the main fountain is on but unfortunately they close the visitor entrance at this point. Aaw! Anyway, let's just wait and see if the lucky fountain works :)
