Talking about Jack Neo's films, those of you who have watched his 2004 film, The Best Bet, will probably recall the following hilarious scenes in which God(s) Of Wealth appeared:
Besides me, it looks like someone else also got an inspiration from that Jack Neo's film. You see, I was at the food centre at Blk 131-135, Lor 1A Toa Payoh on 26 May 06 when I got lucky. I actually met a God Of Wealth in real person, er... I mean real God. (Oh dear, what am I saying?)
(Boy, am I confused. And if my convulated words here are considered blasphemous to anyone, I am sorry. Since I also happen to believe in "sorry also must explain" for some sorry cases, let me explain.)
Although I was confused, there was definitely no mistaken identity - this God Of Wealth was no God Of Health for he walked with a noticeable limp. He looked like he just walked out from a Mediacorp movie shoot. He had his face painted red and was in a full red outfit complete with matching headgear. He was carrying a basket. Inside the basket were not flowers but angpows (red packets) which I believe contained lucky 4D numbers. Not 4D tickets, mind you, but 4D numbers. (I think it is illegal to resell 4D tickets for a profit in Singapore, even if the seller had obtained the original tickets from a legal source.) For the benefit of people like Chun See, who don't buy 4D, the 4D numbers are usually written or printed on pieces of paper and they merely offer dubious tips on what are the 'lucky' 4D numbers to buy. Of course, the Law Of Averages still work here - for every 10,000 4D numbers which the God Of Wealth sells, on the average, one is likely to hit the first prize, another the 2nd, another the 3rd and so on. So these few lucky people think that the God Of Wealth is really God.
He approached stall holders and customers alike. A few people who believed
I think that God Of Wealth was selling the 4D-number angpows for a minimum of S$2 each. I say 'minimum' because you are always welcome to give more. When it comes to donating to Immortals, no amount is too much. Whatever amount you give in excess of S$2 will be readily accepted. You will notice that the loudness of the 'thank you' coming your way is directly proportional to the amount that you have donated.
I didn't buy any 4D number from that
