Several blue S$50 bills were spotted in the water next to Marina Bay Sands after the cold hard money was believed to have been accidentally blown away.
A video of the money floating away was posted on TikTok on July 27.
The caption in the video read: “Free money at MBS”.
The incident happened around 5:45 p.m. Wednesday.
@bleegoodstuffthis’ wallet was blown away by the wind and the money flew out while he was on the phone. The funniest shit is that he is some kind of fengshui master and tells someone on the phone how to keep his wealth. like dude your money literally flew away in the water

Which video showed
In total, at least 10 to 11 banknotes were seen floating on the surface of the water.
The camera zoomed in on several pieces of debris on the water’s surface and they turned out to be S$50 bills.
The caption of the post briefly described how the situation emerged.
According to the caption, the money belonged to a man, a feng shui master aka geomancer, who was on the phone at the time.
The money would have been blown away because the money was in a clip wallet.
The man was ironically over his head on the phone, telling the person on the line “how to keep their wealth,” the caption read.
The caption noted “as a guest, your money literally flew away in the water”.
The top-rated comment in response to the video said the money was literally blown into water, as the direct translation of “feng shui” is “wind water.”
Many commentators also said they would have jumped the ledge to collect the money if they were there at the time.
Where would the money end up?
If the money had indeed fallen into MBS’s waters, it would likely have floated to the Marina Bay area and then to the Marina Reservoir, Singapore’s 15th and largest reservoir.
The Marina Reservoir was formed after the Marina Barrage was completed in October 2008.
The excess water that flows into this catchment area eventually ends up in the open sea.
The dam over the mouth of the Marina Channel leading to the sea can contain all the debris, including the cash.
However, PUB cleans the reservoir daily from 7am to 6pm to ensure it is free of litter.
There is also a daily nightly cleaning service until 11pm.
