My office is neighbored by two NFO (number forecast Operators) mainly Sports Toto and 1D + 3D and I really hate Wednesday (draw day),traffic is madness, parking woes is incessant and once in a while you will hear commotion resulting from parking problems.
I bumped into an old friend as I was walking back to office,he was coming out from one of those NFOs ,gave a pat on his shoulder,he looked at me and gave me a subtle scolding and he said,"next time you can pat me on my shoulder any days you like except draw days, cos "bad luck" lah you know? " I said I was sorry cos I didn't know then jokingly he said,"you sure don't know lah, you Christian ma"
Trying hard to subdue him with good cheers,I said to him,"Bro,I hope tonight you will "kena" number just in time for the coming CNY and I wish you luck" Then with his not so merry voice,he responded,a little sarcastically," You think so easy to "kena" meh?" if it is so easy to win number,then nobody wants to work already lol"
Being old friend, I knew I could kind of joke with this guy, I said,"not easy to 'kena" some more you want to buy,crazy lah you" quickly he interjected before I could say any further," Trying my luck ma"
Life is like that,isn't it? Sometimes it is sustained by some kind of hopes even those hopes are so far fetched, so close to zero to all probabilities, we would still pine for them(the hopes),right?
Before I walked back to my office,I gave him another pat on his left shoulder this time,then jokingly I said to him,I just gave you twice the blessing...
Do you wager at those (Magnum,1D plus 3D and Sports Toto)? For me now, I rather put my bet on Berjaya Sports Toto shares and it is kind of good entry point at RM4.36 and looking at those crowd jamming the outlet, this bet can't go wrong one lah.
P/S : I am living on a prayer instead
