Step on animal’s poop or head hit with bird squirts is consider lucky?

Well, this is something arguable, at least I think so.

Most people would have cursed till the cow come home, and stoned for minutes without knowing what to do. Where can you turn to clean off your shoe, if you accidentally stepped on animal dung? It is getting quite common nowadays when irresponsible pet owners take their dogs for a walk without equipping themselves with spade and bag to remove their pet dung. Malaysian mentality is that these are precious fertilizers that they are contributing back to nature. lol

Basically, these people are plain irresponsible and equally fearful to the thought of collecting their pet’s dung and disposing them correctly. Instead of their pet dogs dirtying their house compound, they walk their dog not for exercise but more of their toilet routine.

With more and more dungs around the garden, walkway, grass fields, it is quite common to step onto one. :)
Most normally cursed, but maybe some take it positive and see it as stepping onto a gold mine, thus deem such incident to be lucky.

As for those hit with flying torpedo, right on forehead. It must be lucky as it so much unlikely to happen. So, anyone getting hit from the sky should take the positive clue that luck is befalling onto him. Quickly rush to a 4D outlet.

Police warn of new 4D ticket trick

It is reported in the newspaper that Tawau police chief ACP Awang Besar Dullah has reminded the public to be wary of a 4D ticket scam which supposedly offers unsuspecting victims up to RM30,000.

The syndicate members will approach victims by showing them a 4D ticket said to have won between RM100,000 to RM500,000 but cannot be claimed due to lack of identification documents. They will then ask the victims to claim the prize money on their behalf and promise rewards up to RM30,000.00. The victims will then to taken in a car to locations near banks, and ask for copies of their MyKad or passport. Before the victims do so, they will request the victims to leave valuables or some money as collateral so that they do not run off with the 4D tickets.

The victims would only realise that they have been cheated when they return after making copies of their MyKad to find the car and the syndicate members missing.

Let’s be clear about claiming 4D winning tickets. Although the above reported news is from Tawau, Sabah, the same trick may be used to trick any unsuspecting member of public in Malaysia.

Firstly, for claims less than RM2,000 it will be made in cash and payment above RM2,000 are in cheque from any respective 4D gaming outlets. Claiming of 4D winning is not from bank!

As for payout above RM60,000. Claims must be make at the gaming operator regional office. Anyway, the morale of the story is never be greedy and be suspicious of any reward / offers that is too good.

How to improve your chance of winning

4D game is all about luck, that is at least our opinion. Although some may disagree and insist that there are formula, system, analysis etc to predict the winning numbers, and we shall review their approach in future.  What we would like to talk about today is how can we improve our chance of winning by increasing our luck.  As to how we insist that 4D game is all about luck, one need to understand how the winning 4D results are generated.  Read the process here.

Have you ever wonder why some people around you seem to be winning in 4D games, striking grand prizes occasionally and numerous special or consolation prizes again and again, yet the numbers you wagered on never come close?  Well, it could be our luck level.  So, let’s explore ways we can improve our luck level.

charityDo more good deeds, get more good karma!
What go around comes around. So, do charity work, offer sincere help to those in needs. It need not always be monetary, it can be as simple as helping a school boy cross the road, to giving your seat to the elderly, or volunteering to help under-privilege children in their studies. Whatever good deeds you do, you shall receive equally good returns. At least that is what we believed.

Stay Positive
The mind is strong and it can do wonders. Stay positive and be optimistic. Those in cheerfully mood attracts positive energy and luck compared to those who are always complaining. Lady luck would not want to mess with a angry person.

Feng-ShuiApply Feng Shui tips
Feng Shui is an ancient science of art or art of science. Anyway, Feng Shui is nothing superstitious nor religious, it is actually about harassing the power of earth energy (positive chi) and repelling / avoiding areas of negative chi. When you have mother earth behind you, what more can you ask for?

Visualising your winning moment
To get closer to winning, you should always stay positive and visualising your winning moment! Visual in your mind how excited you are when the winning number matches your 4D tickets, visual the moment you received the cheque from the 4D operator representative and not forgetting visual the moment you make a donation to help those in need. The saying “Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve.” So, before wagering on the number, visual the number appearing the Kiss4D result. :)

Winning 4D is the ultimate aim we are gearing toward, but we need to be patient, persistent, and having a positive attitude, you’ll see many more lucky results in your 4D games.

Sports Toto to aid rural primary students

It is heartening to know that Sports Toto had in June 2013 embarked on the “Reading My Companion” learning program at 5 mirco-sized Chinese primary schools in the rural areas of Selangor.  This learning program hopes to inculcate reading as a pastime among these rural students.

The 5 participating schools are SJK(C) Cheong Hua in Sabak Bernam, SJK(C) Choong Chee in Ulu Yam Lama, SJK (C) Kerling in Kerling, SJK(C) Liat Choon in Jeram and SJK(C) Simpang Morib in Banting.  About 720 students from these schools each received a beautiful story book which are delivered by Sports Toto’s CSR team to their respective schools.

Apart from delivery of these story book, a story telling session too took place in each of these school to get the students interested and excited about reading.  The schools will too encourage books exchange and sharing among the student as well as encourage the students to share their thoughts in class.

This “Reading My Campaion” is the second organised by Sports Toto and has so far benefited 12 schools and 1,500 students.

Coming Wednesday, it will be 1517 or 1616

wednesday24th July 2013, Wednesday, A Draw day!

Would this day be recorded in history, or it will remain as just any usual day?  Would 1517 or 1616 be a hot number?  Would you also consider number like 2407, 2413?  Would these numbers sold out?

At about 7-8pm, majority of Malaysian will be waiting and praying for the result….it will be either 1517 or 1616!  So, which number do you support?

Would the announcement by the Election Commission for Kuala Besut by-election results be reflected in Magnum, Damacai or Sports TOTO results?  If indeed it is 1616, things will get very interesting and will definitely be the headlines for all major newspapers in Malaysia.  That is something for sure!
