Basically the CNY spirt started off in my office first! I think we were the only department that did our own decorations! Okay, maybe there are others but whatever ;p
So yeah, just in case you’re not Chinese, you may wonder what’s with the snakes. Well, basically this is the year of the snake! Next year will be my year – the year of the Horse(:
And on my work desk…
And if you didn’t know, the Singapore Pools are holding two CNY Toto major draws this years – a 5m Reunion Draw and 10m Hong Bao draw respectively on 2 different draw dates.
So our office went to get one lucky $10 red packet as a department to share for the 1st 5m Reunion draw on the 8th of February 2013. Oh and it was pretty crowded to get the red packet at the Singapore Pools. Especially on the last day. Hehe , this is because sales of all tickets close only at 9pm, half an hour before the draw commerces.
Some of my colleagues got another one for ourselves each as well. I even got one for my mom and of course, for myself!
The bf got one for his mom and himself too.
Oh..and just in case you were wondering what’s inside, basically here you go:
- 1 big sweep ticket for either the Feb or March draw (depending on when you buy)
- 2 boards of QuickPick System 7 numbers.
All these for just $10(:
If you’re really a BIG spender, you might try getting the other $228 option!
After that, we prayed alot. Especially me to my kawaii Molang(:
Gahhh and Molang looked SO adorable, so I had to snap a few more photos!
And I promised Molang that if he granted me my wish, I would buy more Molangs!
And on the 8th of February, everyone was just waiting for the results to be announced.
And now…the moment of truth!
Nope. Nothing. Not even a $20 win T__T
Well, I’m not giving up! There’s going to be another draw next Friday for the $10m Hong Bao Draw.
Are you going to try your luck? ;p
Oh and my next post will most likely be the follow up to this post – of how I spent my CNY, so stay tuned if you’d like!(:
