Avoid unlucky number 13
From Friday the 13th to the number of the Beast to the unlucky number four, digit-related superstitions are aplenty. Whether you have triskaidekaphobia or just want to play things safe, you tend to find yourself avoiding all things 13. Around the world including Singapore, the double-digit is synonymous with bad luck, which is one of the reasons many companies such as hotels use another way of numbering or labelling to avoid the number. Many people also hesitate at the idea of staying on the 13th floor. The number four, on the other hand, is considered unlucky as it sounds a lot like "death" in Mandarin.
