Once in a while, I buy TOTO. I usually buy $1, $2, or 1 system 7 when I want to splurge.
Anyway today was one of those days I queued up to buy TOTO. The group 1 prize is 1.5 million for tomorrow's draw.
While I was in the queue I saw many familiar faces. Patients of my clinic lining up to buy lottery.
One of them was holding a $1000 note. Another was counting his money 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,.......$50 notes. And they were holding stacks of those lottery entry forms. STACKS!
I recognized a few of them who always tell me they got no money so please charge cheaper when they see me.
No money eh?
Ironically there is this new poster at the TOTO outlet that says things like
1) Only gamble what you can afford to lose.
2) Gamble for fun. Don't gamble to invest.
3) Gamble in moderation. You have to eat, drink ,bathe .......
Frankly I didn't see any of the ah peks and ah mahs reading the poster.
Oh well life goes on.....I hope I win the $1.5 mill tomorrow! Wish me luck!
