How to Pray for Love and Marriage at Yueh Hai Ching Temple

Yueh Hai Ching Temple - Front

Many people in Singapore call Yueh Hai Ching Temple the “Temple of Love”. This temple has a statue of Yue Lao (God of Love and Marriage) which has successfully granted many love requests.

How to Pray for Love at Yueh Hai Ching Temple

When entering the grounds of a temple, it’s important not to step directly on the threshold of the main gate. Women should enter with their right foot first, while men enter with their left.

Yueh Hai Ching Temple - Hall

There are two halls in Yueh Hai Ching Temple, the Yue Lao (God of Love and Marriage) statue is in the right hall.

Yueh Hai Ching Temple - Counter

There is a counter to the left of the entrance. Tell the staff that you are here to pray for love and he will give you three sticks of joss sticks, a piece of red thread and a red envelope.

The Yue Lao (God of Love and Marriage) statue sits at the right and of the main Buddha statue in the room.

Yueh Hai Ching Temple - Outside

Follow these steps to pray for love and marriage:

  1. Light the joss sticks using the fire in the hexagon-shaped glass tower outside the hall. If there are excess flames on the joss sticks, do not blow out the flames with your mouth. Instead, flick the joss sticks to the side to extinguish the flames.
  2. Put some money into the red envelope as a token of appreciation to Lue Lao for helping you to find love and marriage.
  3. Put the red packet in front of the Yue Lao statue.
  4. Kneel on the padded stool in front of the statue with the three joss sticks in between your hands.
  5. Keep your eyes open as you pray to Yue Lao so that the God of Love and Marriage can see your face and find you when he has the right match for your you.
  6. Tell Yue Lao your name, age, address and job as well as your requirements for your future partner. Be as specific as possible so that he can find you the right person.
  7. After you have finished praying, bow three times and hang the piece of red thread on the statue.
  8. Take 2 sweets from the bowl in front of the statue and eat them on the way out. One sweet represents people and the other represents love.
  9. Put the three joss sticks standing in the urn outside of the hall.

That is how you pray for love and marriage at Yueh Hai Ching Temple. Do let me know if this has helped you to find your boyfriend/husband and I will write another post on what to do after your wish has been fulfilled.


I switched to Ubox 9 and never looked back

I switched to Ubox 9 from Unbloc Tech and never looked back.

I signed-up for Singtel’s mioTV during an IT show a few years ago. It was a good deal because the first few months were free. My plan has long expired but I didn’t want to recontract because it’s so expensive! I was paying S$37.20 per month which amounts to S$466.40 per year!

That was when a girlfriend told me about a television box that she was using. She said it allowed her to watch all the channels without having to pay for a monthly subscription.

It sounded really good but I didn’t act on it. Maybe it was procrastination, or maybe it was because my aunt in China got me a television box before and it didn’t work so I wasn’t really convinced.

In the meantime, I continued using mioTV for many more months, paying a hefty monthly fee.

I went to that girlfriend’s house one day for her birthday and she showed me the new Ubox 9 from Unbloc Tech. It had a few hundred channels, she could even watch the latest movies.

Unbloc Tech TV Box - Micox

She told me that she bought it from a shop in Sim Lim Square but she couldn’t remember the shop name or which floor it was on. I ended up going to every level and finally found it on the first floor.

The shop is called Micox and they are the legit distributor for Unbloc Tech television box. The retail price is S$288 before GST which totals to S$308.16 after GST.

Unbloc Tech TV Box - Setup

Once you have made payment, they will install the apps for you on the spot. All you need to do when you get home is connect the HDMI cable to your television and you can start watching.

Ubox 9

Ubox 9 is the newest version of Unbloc Tech television box. It comes with Android 10.0 operating system, 4GB Ram, 64GB of storage, supports WiFi 2.4G and 5G and supports 6K videos. You can read all about it on the Unbloc Tech website.

There are over 100 channels from Singapore/Malaysia, UK, US, Canada, Japan, Korea, Taiwan and China.

My father is so happy that he can watch live-stream of sports tournaments from China and around the world. Finally we won’t have to struggle to watch the Spring Festival Gala concert during Chinese New Year the coming year. There is even an app where I can watch all the latest movies and drama series.

The shop gives you 1 month hardware and 3 months software warranty but I had no problems with it at all.








1. 7-8小时的睡眠





  • 调暗光线:电子屏幕和阳光里有较多的蓝光,蓝光会抑制人体分泌褪黑激素(也就是睡眠激素),这种充满活力的光线使你保持清醒和警觉。把房间里的光线调暗不会抑制褪黑激素,你会更容易入眠。
  • 降低体温:用风扇或者空调,可以更容易入眠。

2. 减糖/戒糖





3. 坐姿/站姿




4. 拉伸运动


  1. 站立前屈式:你只需双脚张开到肩膀的宽度,上半身向地弯下,头也要垂下。你的膝盖后面会感到紧绷,背部也会有些酸疼。你可以慢慢的,脊椎一节一节的回复成站姿。做到背部不再酸疼,一般3-5次。
  2. 脊柱扭转:平躺在地上,双腿弯曲,双脚在地面上,胳膊向双侧伸直,呈现十字架形状。双膝盖并拢,向一侧倒下。默数1-10,双膝盖回到中间默数1-5,然后双膝并拢,向另一侧倒下。做到背部不再酸疼,一般3-5次。

5. 不要想它了

Games @ PI – Cheap Place to Play Boardgames in Singapore

Games @ PI - Shop Front

I recently joined a boardgame meetup session at Games @ PI. It is such a great place for playing boardgames that I really want to share it with you.

Games @ PI - Tables

The main draw of Games @ PI is its cheap game table rental for boardgames. The game tables are rented in 3-hour blocks at 2-5pm and 5-8pm at just S$10 per session. The game tables are available for rent on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and Mondays.

Unlike boardgame cafes such as Mosanco Settlers Cafe, Games @ PI does not rent boardgames. You will have to bring your own boardgames to play here. Games @ PI also does not allow consumption of food and drinks in the premises. 

Games @ PI - Coloring
Most people rent the game tables for wargames such as Warhammer and Age of Sigmar. The shop also sells painting supplies of wargames pieces.

You can also buy new boardgames in the shop. You will be able to find new boardgame releases.

3 Threading Parlors in Singapore That I Have Personally Tried

According to Wikipedia, “threading is a method of hair removal originating from Iran, India, Central Asia and China”. Threading has become more popular in recent years.

I prefer threading over other forms of hair removal for a few reasons:

  • cheap price: as compared with waxing which can easily cost S$50 or more, threading is so much more affordable. 
  • quick: most threading sessions take just 5-10 minutes, it’s quick and hassle-free. 
  • relatively painless: as long as the threading artist is skillful, threading is relatively painless.

I love threading so much that I have taken it upon myself to scout out threading parlors that are cheap and good. I have personally tried the 3 shops listed below, you can be assured that the threading will be quick, relatively painless and cheap. 


Bonita - Shop Front

Bonita - Threading Price List

Bonita means “beautiful” in Spanish. You can’t beat Bonita in terms of location. There are two outlets, one in One Raffles Place (Raffles Place MRT) and Orchid Hotel (Tanjong Pagar MRT). The prices are very reasonable considering both outlets are in the Central Business District. The threading artists are very quick and professional, you will be done before you know it. 

Let them know if you are new to threading so that they can tell you how to pull the skin taut. If there is a certain look you are going after, let them know too.

I usually go for eyebrow + upper lip which costs $14.


Bonita (Raffles Place/Tanjong Pagar) 

Price: S$6 – S$30 depending on the area(s) for threading 


Prisha’s Boutique

Prisha's Boutique - Price List

I was looking for a threading salon in Orchard Road and my colleague introduced me to Prisha’s Boutique. Located on the second floor of Midpoint Orchard, this small shop doesn’t look like much but it is hugely popular.

The threading artists are swift and experienced, you will be out of there before you know it.

My usual combination of eyebrows + upper lip costs S$10, the cheapest among the three shops. 


Prisha’s Boutique (Midpoint Orchard) 

Price: S$4 – S$27 for Ladies, S$4 – S$35 for Gents depending on the area(s) to be threaded


Rupini's - Shop Front

Rupini's - Interior

Rupini's Services

Rupini’s is the most established among the three with three outlets in Little India, Yishun Central and Midpoint Orchard.

My usual routine of eyebrow + upper lip costs S$15 here. It is slightly more expensive than the other two but still acceptable.


Rupini’s (Little India/Yishun Central/Midpoint Orchard) 

Price: S$6 – S$27 depending on the area(s) 


There are many other threading parlors in Singapore but these are the three that I have personally tried before. I can vouch for the skillfulness and affordable prices at these three shops. 

If you are new to threading, visiting any of three parlors will ensure that your virgin threading experience will be less traumatizing.
