in the early 80s, i travelled from geylang to jurong lake to fish. gave that up after a few visits coz only fished up tilapia and rubbish! no sign of soon-hock (marbled goby) or snakehead fish though many claimed such prized catch existed.
the beauty of jurong lake are free fishing and convenient location. that's from an avid angler's point of view. i founded s'pore's first registered angling organisation, the pioneer angling club. also wrote the nation's first fishing book, the right way to pond fishing.
it's heartwarming news that this lake although man-made will be revamped. although i've retired from fishing, please keep the sportsfishing there alive! the pioneer angling club was invited by pub to try out reservoir fishing before it's officially open to public. well fishing in jurong lake should permit live bait & unlike reservoir only confined to articial bait, commonly called lure. for live bait, eg dead prawn, is certainly better than lure, eg spinner. although lure can spin liked a live fish or prawn, it lacks the smell that lure the catch.
some years ago attended a mid-autumn mooncake festival event at the chinese garden organised by the rc. due to her chinese architectural design, it blended very well with the chinese event.
since 1988 till now, i'm a geomancer, thus the creation of jurong lake district is of great interest. historically, in china, japan & korea, many national buildings & landscapes were designed according to feng shui rules. well, in any chinese community in any countries, geomancy is there in one way or another.
i wish the relevant authorities will input at least some feng shui into this mega project. dr evelyn lip, former head of nus architectue dept & author of several geomany books is one non-commercial sifu to seek advice from. well, not forgetting to have auspicious date & time for first renovation, open new water course, soft launch, official opening etc.
look forward to this new water & garden district of the nation. water means wealth!
Naming whether for NewBorn, Adult or Company is Hardwork.
Recall a case almost 20 years ago: a pregnant lady in her late 30s came crying for help. she wanted not only an Auspicious Date for Caesarean & Naming for the future 2nd boy but the Assurance that these 2 jobs will reverse her bad life! she didn't choose a good date & name for the 1st delivery some years go. shortly after the boy was born, her hubby's business went bust & owed much money! he'd no choice but went into illegal dealing. so unlucky that the boat that carried duty unpaid goods sunk. another misfortune was the big boss who was on his way to pass him some black money died in a car accident! he went into hiding. no assurance. i only do my job the way it should be. a year later, she contacted me with positiveness
A good name not only must balance the newborn's elements & number. of strokes, more importantly, it must fits & suits his life. No point giving him strong name like Kuan Yew whereby he's too 'light' to carry it. On the other hand, a 'strong' kid shouldn't use light name like Xiao Ming. He'll float. Of course, the name must sound nice & meaningful too. Don't forget to blend in the surname. Example Zu Gong is great name but if the surname is Li, that would sound awful!
The name will be base on chinese pronunciation, & not dialect. Date & Hour of Birth, & Gender of Newborn, chinese names of parents, & siblings (if any) required. You can also highlight any word you like or dislike. Well, if your ancestor's book insists to use certain word, we're afraid we might have to reject your job. For that certain word might be harmful to your kid. Will not do, if it's natural birth but you want a good date to operate & deliver it. Don't go against God's will. Usually we'll provide several middle words to match with the last words for selection. It isn't our style that you pay more get more names. We'll provide whatever possible. Hanyu pinyin & word meaning will be given. also what to take note/avoid too.
$200 if collect name after 3 days. $300 to collect the next day.
If it's a Caesarean case, an Auspicious Date/Time is highly recommended. Date of birth of the parents, & operation period needed. $100. Top up some $, Ideal Study Stream/Career Type/Area & Lucky Colour will be provided.
Unless you're from oversea, otherwise we discourage naming by email. Lots to explain. Company Naming is another of our expertise. Rigel & Avaplas are pleased with their Chinese Names. Fee will depend on whether it's proprietorship, partnership, pte ltd. P.O.A.
Change of Name or Name Select for Entertainer & Writer too. Other Race eg German, Japanese, who wish to have Chinese Name, can be done as well.
