Where to buy: Any souvenir shop or street market stall

Link: Lucky Cat or Maneki-neko >>

Average price: $2;


On a recent trip to Singapore I saw loads of these lucky cats pretty much every where I went. I thought that they were originally Chinese lucky cat, but they actually originated from Japan. The maneki-neko is sometimes also called the welcoming cat, lucky cat, money cat and believed to bring good fortune to its owner. Common colours are white, black, gold and sometimes red. The arm waves and are quite nice and inexpensive, which is why there are lucky cats all around my work place. I saw them in all the street markets including the Chinatown and Bugis street market. The more you buy the better the discount.
