Hi Rahimi;

You will often find monks walking around in Singapore handing out small cards which are gold in color, and depending on your belief will bring good luck- or make an interesting souvenier. The monks claim the money goes back to where they are from to help build a monstary etc. They normally do not speak English.
From what I know about monks- they accept donations of food etc. for their daily life. But these monks which I have met selling (like above) can get downright aggresive!...
A good rule of thumb for all travelers- beware of scams.

All the best,
- Dan

Default To danielswalsh: Thanks

Dear Dan,

Thanks for the info. Personally, I like most of your shots. Those taken from MRT are pretty cool!!! Very creative! Your travel shots are great as well. How I wish I could travel as much as yo do. Now I have to save some money, my next country list would be Morocco!!!

Merry X-mas!
