I booked my return flight from Hong Kong to Manila in the afternoon. I thought that it will give me a chance to explore some parts of the city first half of the day before I headed out for the airport. I got a phone call from our data center early in the morning and that made me too lazy to explore. I thought that I will just walk around the Wan Chai harbor like I did the previous night.
As I walked around the same place, I have been approached twice by a man offering me a golden coin. I figured that he was a “holy” man trying to give me some “luck” for a price. I am used to saying no to people like him and I continued my late morning stroll. When I got tired, I decided to walk back to the hotel. Close to the entrance of the hotel – I was stopped by a man telling me that he sees something on my forehead. That got my attention. I checked if the “L” sign on my forehead a la “Glee” has reappeared. He continued on to say, “You are a lucky man. I can see it on your forehead”. “Good,” I thought. At least “L'” meant lucky and not loser.
I responded, “Thank you. Yes I know I’m a very lucky man”. I wasn’t lying. That’s how I feel. I’ve always had good fortune.]\
He then offered to give me a reading of my fortune which I politely declined. Who needs their fortune read when you already know you are a lucky man?
