Please note that i do not promote lottery, nor encourage my dear readers to buy. However, if it strikes please do share it with me ya. "Ji Lang Ji Pua, Kam Cheng Beh Sua", (in Hokkien). Thank you.

And for the record ladies and gentlemen, there is no five-ple for five times or multiple of five. There may be single, double and triple, but there is no five-ple. That is the word we made it out ourselves.

It goes by single, double, triple, quadruple, quintuple, sextuple and so forth.

By the way, today is Friday the 13th. Its said to be an unlucky day, while for some, its an opposite to it. As plucked from Wikipedia;

  • In numerology, the number twelve is considered the number of completeness, as reflected in the twelve months of the year, twelve signs of the zodiac, twelve hours of the clock, twelve tribes of Israel, twelve Apostles of Jesus, twelve gods of Olympus, etc., whereas the number thirteen was considered irregular, transgressing this completeness. There is also a superstition, thought by some to derive from the Last Supper or a Norse myth, that having thirteen people seated at a table will result in the death of one of the diners.

  • Friday has been considered an unlucky day at least since the 14th century's The Canterbury Tales, and many other professions have regarded Friday as an unlucky day to undertake journeys or begin new projects. Black Friday has been associated with stock market crashes and other disasters since the 1800s. It has also been suggested that Friday was the day that Jesus was crucified.
The Last Supper

At the end of the day, its just another superstition...
