BAD LUCK AND GOOD LUCK

Monday evening about 10 pm, got a call from my friend, Tony.

Tony : Sun, what are you doing? We are feeling bored la.
Want to go Genting or not?

Me : Sorry, I am busy la. Anyway, who's going?

Tony : Andy, Sue and Jessica and myself. What u so busy about
?

Me : I'm reading an interesting book la. You know I don't like
going to the casino.

Tony : What la you. We are going to the casino and you tell me
you're reading a book. Lucky you dun wanna come along!


(In Cantonese, a book is called 'shuee" which sounds the same as
"losing money')


***

Four friends at Genting casino .... 1.30 am Tuesday

Jess is the lucky one that night. Barely one hour after playing the
'tiger machines' she won about a thousand ringgit.

Andy and Sue didn't gamble much. Both of them were busy
'gup ha, gup ha' from table to table, observing the players and
the croupiers.

Tony got darn bad luck. Lost a few hundred ringgit and has
only one twenty five ringgit chip left. Stood near a tai/sai
(big/small) table, looking left and right, searching for good luck.
Suddenly spied lucky Jess emerging from the washroom.

Tony : Jess, you did a small job or big job leh?

Jess : Small one, why?

Tony : Nothing. Just asking.

And he hurried away and placed his last hope on 'sai.' (small)

Believe it or not, Tony won that round. And his luck turned
too, coz after that he recouped what he had lost earlier.

***

Tony said I gave him the bad luck when I mentioned 'shuee'
but Jess was his 'lucky star' that night. Luckily this was said
in jest otherwise I will sure scold him cukup cukup!!

Anyway, I dun care who got bad luck or good luck la, becoz
I dun like gambling at all.

One nice thing though. Last night, Jess treated all of us to a
lovely yummy seafood dinner. Crabs, tiger prawns, anyone???

You'll find the most interesting characters in the casinos. Some of them are so obssessed with gambling that they would sell their mothers!
Come outside the casinos, again you'll find some interesting characters as well. Tai yee longs, Chinese piaomeis, pimps etc.
This ain't nothing. Go to Macau and amplify 50 times of what I've just mentioned. LOL
