Chinese Take-Out Party LUCKY DRAW!


I am not big on lucky draws...here's a typical conversation I had with my workmates regarding Hong Kong's version of lotto, Mark Six:

X: Have you bought your tickets for Mark Six?
Me: No...why?
X: Get your ass moving, dummy! Tonight's jackpot is HK$60,000,000!!! (the Cantonese say it this way = six thousand of ten thousands (6000 x 10,000) instead of 60 million...so big numbers confuse me all the time)
Me: Wow...that sounds like A LOT more zeroes than what I can comprehend in Cantonese
X: Yeah! If you don't see me tomorrow at work, I'll be off to some Carribean islands working on my tan, sipping my expensive bottle of Champagne, surrounded by A LOT of chicks, and f**k this job!!
Me: Oohhh OK...good luck, man!
X: Aren't you gonna buy Mark Six?
Me: Nah...I never win...not even HK$20 (the minimum win) in 5 years!!
X: Really????!!!...wait a minute...have you ever bought Mark Six?
Me: Errrr.....no, why?
X: !@#$!$!$#!$#@!$....never mind!!! (in Cantonese = what a waste of air)


LOL! Anyway...I really wanted to give a token of my appreciation (something physical, not virtual) to ALL my party participants, but due to my super tight budget (which is a lot tighter than my azz), I could only give out one set this time ^_^... I shall look for a sponsor and give more next time, aye? ^_*

Now...I didn't know a better way to do this...so I did it the conventional way:


...your names, printed out, cut...

folded, shaken & drawn from a plastic take-out lunch box ^_^

A team of auditors from KPMG witnessed the draw...KIDDING!!!...only a couple of workmates did and I swear I didn't look when I drew the name (take my words against theirs) and I didn't include my own name in that box (I meant, I didn't include only one...but most of the names in the box are mine KIDDING-2! ^_^)

Check out the lucky draw video below! It wasn't easy to hold a camera, shakin', drawin' & unfoldin" HAHA I should've asked someone to help me hold the camera T_T



Pardon the blurry video....hehe

Congratulations to the LUCKY WINNER!!!
(all names in the box are mine apart from the lucky winner's name!!! I couldn't believe I DIDN'T win!!! KIDDING-3!)

...AND THANK YOU EVERYONE FOR MAKING MY FIRST BLOG EVENT A SUCCESS!
CHEERS, Y'ALL!!!

...see you at the next partee!...
