I went for a pay-as-you-wish fortune telling session, and I’ve never felt so called out

by Kylynn Seng

I’m the kind of person who reads my weekly horoscope, knows my rising and moon sign, and avoids walking under hanging laundry (if you know, you know). 

While I’d love to get regular answers to my burning questions about life via tarot card readings and the like, spiritual guidance usually doesn’t come cheap. Plus, there are places that charge up to S$30 for a five minute consultation — that’s hardly enough time for all the things I need to ask. 

So, when I heard about this pay-as-you-wish fortune telling, of course I had to head down. Knowledge is power, after all.

Located at The Bencoolen, this temple offers all kinds of fortune telling servicesface reading, palmistry, divination, and more. I didn’t express any preference for which master I’d like to see, so I was able to get in pretty quickly. 

I didn’t know where to begin, so I was relieved that the consulting Master (with seven years of experience!) took the lead by asking me for my birthday. Apparently, one look at my birth date would allow her to read my character, strengths, and weaknesses.

From there, she began reading my fortune — now, I won’t bore you with all the little details, but if there’s one thing that particularly stood out, it was the phrase “love hurts”. What? 

She shared that I should be wary of lies within relationships in general, and because of my birth date, I should also exercise caution whenever I meet with new people. Alright, sounds like pretty decent advice so far…

Plus, she foresaw some health issues over the next three years, and told me to be wary of back and spinal problems. Her suggestion? Do yoga. 

The rest of her advice seemed pretty generic, and there wasn’t really anything that struck me as being eerily accurate to my current state. My colleague also shared that she was advised to be less “aggressive and stubborn” — I’d have to say that we disagreed, since she’s one of the mildest people I know (one might even ask her to be more assertive!).

Overall, I’d have to admit that I was hoping to receive a little more guidance. It definitely wasn’t a wasted trip, since I received a timely reminder to be more cautious and to take care of my health — though I’d recommend taking the advice given with a pinch of salt. 

What I liked was that it was pay-as-you-wish, so I’d say it’s still worth a shot, especially if you find yourself in dire need of some guidance! Sessions might not be available daily, so you’re better off calling ahead before heading down.
