Ratty, prosperity feelings


I have a good feeling about the year of the Rat.  I think it’s gonna be a prosperous and fruitful year ahead for me.  Didn’t go and check what the year has in store for me in terms of the Chinese animal zodiac, but I can just feel it.  In the months leading up to the auspicious Chinese New Year,  I have received very clear indications that lead me to believe what I feel is true.  And I am quite certain they mean something.

Why, just last night, I received a text message on my cellphone that said:

Pengumuman dari Petronas Mlys, TAHNIAH!  No. simcard anda tlh memenangi Undian bertuah cek tunai RM15000.  Sila hubungi: 006285656237997. Terima kasih.

(Translation: Announcement from Petronas Mlys, Congratulations!  Your simcard has won the lucky draw for a cash cheque of RM15000.  Please call: 006285656237997.  Thank you.)

There is so much I can do with the RM15000, I thought.  Off the top of my head, more new dresses?  New shoes?  Put it into some investment vehicle?

Well, not to mention that RM10,000 cash cheque I was promised in the text message I received last December too, in some contest I don’t remember participating in.

TAHNIAH. SimCard anda telah memenangi undian bertuah Cek tunai RM10000 dari peraduan CELCOM sila hubungi: 006285696012222.  Terima kasih.

(Translation: Congratulations.  Your SimCard has won the lucky draw for a cash cheque of RM10000 from a CELCOM contest please contact: 006285696012222.  Thank you.)

I wonder what would happen if I were to call that number.  How many people do you think would actually believe that they had won and call that number?

So what do you think?  Are these foretelling indicators of good things to come?

“Tong tong-tong C-H-I-A-N-G!!!!” *offers plate of “kum” and “ong lai“*

…oh and it MUST certainly mean something that Ethan adores Mickey Mouse too, right?
