My Own Little Money Tree

When my husband and I were in Singapore a few years ago we visited a pewter manufacturing place called Royal Selangor. Everything there was so beautiful and I really wanted to buy something as a souvenir, but most things seemed out of my price range. That was, until I saw these delightful little money trees. The money trees are apparently based on Malay coinage and are supposed to bring you good luck. Now, what could be better than that! I immediately bought one and have it sitting in a prominent place at home. Whenever I'm in need of a few extra pennies, money in some form, I rub my little money tree. Whether it's coincidence or not, I am not prepared to say, but most of the time that little rub works and the money I'm hoping for - only small amounts - eventually appears. I wonder if it would have appeared anyway. I'd rather not know. I'm quite a believer in my money tree.

You should rub it every day for a month - gather that extra money that you get .... then rush off back to the shop to buy a bigger one :)

I like that idea, especially as it would involve a trip back to Singapore emoticon :smile:

Where can I get me one of those? It would solve a lot of problems if it really works! emoticon :smile:

valmnz I love the story of your money tree. These small talismans/goodluck charms, etc.... I think they are wonderful.

haha, glad that you like my country, and manage to get such a good item at a low price.

I didn't say it was a low price, just that it was affordable compared to the other items emoticon :smile: I spent a couple of days in Singapore a few years ago. I've met you on another site previously haven't I?

I was on many sites since I started writing online in 2009.

We certainly could use a money tree... although, the sort in the Sims would probably be even better.
