I spent the entire weekend sleeping and watching Chuck. >.<
Magnum 4D is a game of chance where odds are heavily stacked against you. It is very insidious in that you can easily spend RM 3,000 in a single week for three draws without even realizing how ludicrous it is to go for such long (and desperate odds).
I must admit, I spent close to RM 1,000 on the last two draws (Sunday and special draw Tuesday). I usually bet RM 50 for each number coz anything less would just be sad considering the amount I’ve lost. You don’t even feel the cash drain unlike in casinos coz of the high jackpot prizes. I would describe it as life changing even – imagine putting RM 50 on Small for two numbers that came out in the top three.
You’ll be raking in:
RM 175,000 for the first prize
RM 100,000 for the second prize
in addition to the jackpot which is usually around RM 12,000,000.
12 million is is a life changing amount, which is what draws people in. Hell, even winning ONE prize without jackpot would more than cover my losses.
However, after a week of this I decided it was unwise and spread my bets – RM 20 Small for each number. It still ran up RM 400+ each draw despite getting only 13 numbers coz of the Jackpot option, which will rack up RM 156 for 78 possible pairs in addition to the 13 x RM 20.
I didn’t get any for today (you can purchase in advance during the weekends) and I’m glad coz none of my numbers came out. Oh, and photo taken using the Sony Cyber-shot TX-5.
NO MORE GAMBLING. Not even 4D. Hmph!
I got a stack of postcards from Grace
[pixelphobia.net] today. :) It was all bundled up when I got home and
consisted of a total of 5 postcards rubber banded together. The first
four are McDonald’s postcards, each one having a single letter – FOR,
WHAT, ITS, WORTH. They actually double as a coupon for a free something
with a purchase. The back of the postcards actually fit side by side to
make a large banner with “i’m lovin’ it”!
Don’t worry about it if this all sounds puzzling. “McDonald’s
vouchers” and “i’m lovin’ it” is an insider thing between us. Something
like our private joke, except only the first one is funny and the
second one isn’t. :p Anyway, the 5th postcard is mailed from Cameron
Highlands during her camp:
Front of the postcard.
Camerons was freaking cold
as it rained all day & night.
Had some freezing & sleepless
nights during the camp. Other
than that, all was fine. They
had pretty good strawberry farms & shortcakes
there too! As usual, ate a lot.
Will write again when am in Ipoh!

Thanks Grace! :) She’s the greatest, taking time out to mail postcards.
On another note, I have been notified by The People From Above
(otherwise known as TPFA) that updating my weblog during work hours is
unacceptable, even during lunch hour, and while I’m known for being
subversive, I shall accede to this. I can understand how management can
interprete this as a loss of productivity so I will not be updating the
site, replying the comments or even visiting my own blog(s) during
However, I will update daily as usual, when I get back from work.
The first person who accuses me of giving in to The Man gets a hefty
kick to the balls (or to the general region for females). ;)
