When Melvin the car salesman first asked us to submit a prefered plate number for the car, we naturally went for the same number as Blue Wonder’s. It was ong, meaning lucky, and my pop had paid a substantial amount for it when we first got Blue Wonder 15 years ago. My chinese friends were always laughing and commenting on its supposed meaning (Get rich easily and stay rich, or something like that), and I liked it coz it was easy to remember. Melvin wasn’t too impressed with it though and breezily said it’d be easy to get. A week later he didn’t sound too sure and said I’d have to pay an extra RM400 if I wanted it. Yesterday he said I needed to tender a bid for it and the cost may reach RM5000.
We abandoned our lucky number and after much giggles and consultation with a chinese friend, chose another.
I like the new number a lot. Again it’s easy to remember and it has my favourite number 5 in it. Let’s hope it keeps its promise. Literally ‘Quick quick quick rich!’ Hahahha… the way George and Atti poop and use up their litter, we need all the help we can get.
