even the best fengshui masters on the planet cant save a half baked management team. its not a low cost venture to start with, & to spend a 6-fig sum so soon doesn't speak well on the way its run.
But there's one thing that does make me sit up and think. It has not rained on the actual parade for 40 consecutive years. Even this year's parade, it rained but only a bit and only for a short while at the Bay, while from Esplanade Bridge, one could clearly see that it was absolutely pouring cats and dogs over Marina South, merely 0.5km away. Considering how threatening the clouds looked over the surrounding area on Aug 9, I was expecting to be drowned like a rat on Esplanade bridge, but all we got was just a drizzle.
Coincidence? Natural weather patterns? Maybe. But for 40 years in a row?
like in the cartoons. Just flick the switch from "clockwise" to "counterclockwise" lor! Hmm. Maybe engineers should seriously consider this option, eh? Save a bit of money.
But seriously though, is it really a scam for FS masters to charge so much? Well, I guess it's also the same way why some people wonder why wedding photographers must charge so much. Press button only, whaat...
If I'm not mistaken though, much of the bill was used to pay for the wheel to be re-configured to spin the other way around. Heck, for all you know, maybe the engineers really did just flip a secret switch.
in any case i dare say in 24 months the price structure will adjust downwards, good fengshui anot. at the current price, majority will give it a miss.
i wonder wad is draining S'pore's 'qi' manz...

maybe the erp gantries are also there for FS reasons, except it will pay for its installation and maintainence cost.
photography makes one sees things from all angles.
