Colorful LUCKy Friends*


" Hellooo...meet my new
colorful friends in Singapore! "
.
... Yesterday I had a very looooong & boooooring business meeting in Kallang, an industrial location(not a glamorous place at all! But I'm working hard to earn my Christmas Bonu$ ~you know...). Fortunately or I should say LUCKILY, there was this fish tank at the reception area. So during our short breaks I rushed to it and say hi to these beautiful new friends... I have noticed most of the establishments here have a fish tank near the entrance area. Being curious, I asked one of the receptionists and she explained that it's a tradition! Having fishes and water elements near the entrance door is supposed to bring them 'luck'...errr I'm quite sure it has to do with the art of Fen Shui! Whatever it is, LUCKY for me that I could take some pictures of these adorable-colorful-creatures! I think they were as curious as I was!! Perhaps they enjoyed watching me doing my fish impression as I pressed my face against the glass tank & did the "kissie-kissie-kissie + Gulp-gulp-gulp Action" Anyway, here are more ~Enjoy them as much as I did Darrrlingsss...






This is what I did in front of the fish tank...
Well-well-well...I just hope they won't mention
anything about it to my boss
back in the States!!! ~Whahhh...
.
errr...try this 'Fishie-Kiss-Action' sometimes...
heard it helps to tighten our facial muscles!!!
~xoxo*

Adorable! I find the fen shui lost when comes time to have to clean the dang tanks though... :) Sounds like you are finding the simpliest of pleasures, must be great being you! :)

Dumbwit Tellher ♥ said...

You made me laugh, & that's not easy to do today. I did not know that about fish tanks near the doorways..I feel so smart now! Will be practicing my fish face because heaven knows it need tightening just like everything else on this bod. Do have a fabulous time ~ Xxdeb

Shaddy said...

Thanks for the facial tightening tip. I need lots of help in that department...too much time in the sun!

I'm glad you have the diversion of the fishes to brighten your day.

Iva said...

such pretty fishies! :)

YAY for tightening farcical muscles!!

Iva said...

Jan said...

Those fishes were looking right at you ! Amazing !

B K Kenobi said...

they're so cute!

Mary-Laure said...

Funny and beautiful little fish!

The Haute-Shopper said...

Great fishie face you did there ;-) I've always loved fish tanks as well (as long as they have enough space). The only time I thought it was highly inappropriate was in sushi restaurants, where the poor things had to watch the chefs prepare what might have formerly been their friends...

Hanako66 said...

hahahahaha

you better get in at least a little bit of duty free shopping while you are away!

Anthony said...

I love the beautiful fishies! You certainly have a way with photography... I also like how you're obviously drawn to vibrant colors. :)

Great new header, btw!

Anthony said...

P.S. - That wouldn't happen to be a real young Tony Randall doing the peek-a-boo, would it?

cindy said...

so cute, you and the fish!

The Seeker said...

Love the 'Fishie-Kiss-Action' I must start working on that... ;)

You don't stop amazing me with unexpected things.

Love you

xoxo + blessings

Sher said...

Debbie said...

Hahaha i love the fishy face! I need to get some fish for my apt. maybe they will bring me luck as well!

Simply Colette said...

So cute! Glad you got some enjoyment from your long day. She works hard for the money. ;) Love that bike. Maybe I'll order some and start a rental company by the beach here in Lauderdale! ;)

Joyce said...

Very colorful photos! I wonder if the hotel has hidden cameras and are watchiing you give fish kisses. Cute. xoxo

Anna G said...

You're too cute. I love fish faces.

Sam said...

I love the way they are all floating towards you to saying "Hi there gorgeous!!" (and maybe "Got any food?") Very pretty shots Lenore!!

trishiekoh said...

You're a funny girl!
Glad the fishes provided a lovely distraction.

josie(bean) said...

ahaha those fishies are too cute, really good photo shots you got of their faces! and nice replica fish face yourself haha :)

Dustjacket Attic said...

I just love the fish shots, they are hilarious.
xoxo

Charlie said...

You are a N-U-T-T-A-H(is that how the Brits spell it? but you get it right?) but I love it cause I have the same thoughts! What the heck can you do after being locked up in a tech park for dayyysss when it's hot outside and the shops beckon you? Stare at the fish and make faces at them. Have you had any chili-crab or Hananese chicken rice? You should try if you haven't already.

Hugs LNM and keep the faces coming!

down and out chic said...

fish tanks always make entrances and waiting rooms so much more interesting. your photos are lovely!

janettaylor said...

How fun, Lenore! :-)

XOXO
