Gong Xi Fa Cai!


First off, let me wish all of you a very Happy Chinese New Year! Legend has it that during this festive 14-day period, that great Big Bank in the Clouds (ie Genting) has a cash turnover of a million Ringgit / per minute.

So as a community service message, please, please, please refrain from losing all yer fooking hard earned cash at blackjack, mahjong, chua tai tee, poker etc etc this festive period. Me knows it is a stereotype but this is one that is frankly quite true among the Chinamen.

I remember every year around this period the Sepet regulars (yes, Becky, am talking bout you & yer gang!) of Broadwalk would start gambling at the pub. Despite me protestations that I could fooking lose me licence, they insisted, "Haiya Bala, Chinese New Year once a year only, close one eye lar . . ." .

However, me had to keep that one eye shut fer much longer than the 14-days as these fellas would fooking continue well into March!!! With everyone trying to recoup their losses, these sessions would sometimes turn quite serious with nary a word being said as the cards were being dealt. "One last round" became quite the catch phrase that no one followed during this period.

Well, anyways, Gong Hei Fatt Choy & try not to lose yer house & a double mortagage whilst at the tables, ok? Cheers!
