A Day To Celebrate?

"My boss reminded us once again... wear a proper attire on this day... Make sure the boxes are carried into the factory exactly on the .... 9th September, 2009 at 9.09am!" my best friend retorted to me last weekend....

"09/09/09 at 09.09am" (cheong cheong gau gau? longevity)

"wa....lauu...eh... very geng la, your boss!" I remarked....

So, today is the day, the day my best fren's boss's official opening on his factory, a factory bought for only RM2.1 million in IPOH. ONLY, nia... hahaha... With that big amount, I will be shaking legs and butts for the rest of my life... lol....

Chinese are chinese... the dates, the days, the time... are very important, especially to business people. This morning radio 988 DJ baru mentioned that today is the day for many weddings as well, many happy couples tied their knots on this auspicious 09/09/09... (wonder they signed the book at 9 o'clock, 9 minutes or not...)

Auspicious or not, now I am still sitting here at 6.57pm, waiting for my girl to finish tuition and then we might celebrate our dinner eating at the roadside hawker stall at 9.09 PM! How about that? :)

  11. so, we can conclude that it's not the numbers that count, but rather, who you had dinner with!!
