Lucky star is on my side

Thursday, February 18, 2010

What is one of the Chinese customs that we never miss during CNY? It's gambling, of course. Frankly speaking, I'm not much of a gambler cuz it's not really in my family culture to place small bets in card games. Grandpa dislikes it & never permit us to play at home for fear of addiction.

I was at an old friend's house to bai nin & she invited us for a few rounds of blackjack. Since it was for pure fun & no serious bettings involved, I decided to take part as well. I guess lucky star has been on my side despite losing minimal bets in the first few rounds. Luck took a good turn towards the end & when it was my turn to be the chonker, my lucky star was definitely shining oh-so-bright on me.

Unbelievably, I won RM20+ with only RM1 or RM2 bets. Whee! XD Nevertheless, it was a good game after all not cuz of win or lose but the opportunity to catch with each other after a two year lapse. I mean, how often do we get to meet up like this so often? This the joy of CNY. =)
