Photo Hunt - Pointed

PhotoHunt


Buildings in Singapore with very pointed edges. I wonder how's the business for all the occupants there. From a geomancer's point of view(not ME!), it not very good for luck, to live or work in pointed structures.

Hmm... interesting feng shui. Don't you ever fold your money into triangles. It's bad luck for you too but I don't mind having them if you are scared of bad luck.. hehe :P

Didn't know it was bad luck to live/work in pointed buildings. I learn something new everyday.

I really liked your photos. Those are very interesting buildings!

Heart of Rachel said...

I learned something new today. Feng shui has many interesting aspects.

I used to work in Suntec City and would drive past this building every day. I loved how it looked like it was almost not there in some directions.

danielctw said...

Those buildings in singapore, kinda normal to see them around everywhere. Hmm...

Lynn said...

The buildings look quite sleek.

mimi11460 said...

Sharp and pointed edges are normal to huge and high rise i think it is shaped on purpose.happy weekend see mine if you can.

luna miranda said...

SnoopyTheGoon said...

Very unusual. I would like to see the corner office ;-)

Have a great weekend.

jientje said...

Bad Feng Shui you mean?
But it makes great pictures though!

June said...

There must be some really funky closets in those buildings...seems like not such good use of space.

secret agent mama said...

I always wonder how the inside of those kinds of buildings look!

mirage2g said...

My husband used to frequent Singapore but stopped when his dad died...I hope he somehow changes his mind and visit his sisters (with us too)...then I get to see those pointed buildings and all the other lovely places (and skies) you've shown in your photos. Happy weekend!

Karen said...

WOW! I've never seen a building like that before! I'd love to see how that works out on the inside.

Very interesting buildings.

Hootin' Anni said...

Excellent photo choices. Modern architecture boggles my mind.

Mine's shared.

tigerfish said...

Hahhaa...but I heard the "razor" design will be bad for buildings facing it. Eg...the buildings facing the sharp edge of Gateway buildings...those will be bad.

Randi said...

Interesting buildings and nice catch for the theme.
Happy weekend!

Heather said...

Very interesting buildings.

Sarge Charlie said...

Clever choice for the theme. That building has really sharp edges.

KISSEDALOTATOADS said...

So, these building have a bad luck reputation?? Hmmmm,.... odd shaped structures too. Great photos and have a good weekend.

JesieBlogJourney said...

Hmm, I never knew pointed buildings are believed to be unfavorable. However, I believe that murder and bankruptcy cases do exist in unpointed buildings too.

the teach said...

Didn't know it wasn't good to live in a pointed structure... wait til you see the roof structures of MY house. I'll probably post my house for Ruby Tuesday. It's red and white! :)

SabineM said...
