Here's something to make you involuntarily dry heave in public.
Apparently, Singaporeans (I think specifically the Chinese ones) think that moles are very lucky. And if you can grow a really long hair out of one, then you've really hit the jackpot. In this case, they grow them as long as physically possible. The cutting or plucking of these hairs will "cut" your luck or take it away completely.
So you will see them all over the country with these extremely long plaits growing off the unsightly moles on their necks, faces and so on.
I try very hard to respect the culture and appreciate it from their point of view. However, this is one that I just cannot grasp.
Do they know that these "lucky" moles are also the source of skin cancer for many people? I wouldn't consider that a lucky part of my body.
I'd like to introduce them to my friends named "fate" and "predetermined destiny"...and hand them some tweezers. Luck schmuck people. Groom yourselves.
