My World Tuesday - God of Fortune

Oh this is my favourite at the Singapore River Hongbao. This is the God Of Fortune.

It is not raining and why are these girls carrying the umbrella upside down?

If you looked at the two videos below you will know exactly what they are doing. The God of Fortune will released some lucky numbers and these girls are trying to catch the numbers with their umbrellas...lol

The numbers are used to purchase 4D (four digits) lottery. I dont buy 4D lottery so I dont collect these numbers.
I collected some to take photos to show you how they looked like. Some of them have numbers and some dont.

The video shows these girls trying to collect the numbers with their numbers...lol
It was so beautiful that night when the God of Fortune suddenly released more numbers. It looked like it was raining golden showers.

I was standing behind the God of Fortune and as the wind was blowing in my direction, some numbers fall onto me...hahahaha and no I did not use these numbers to purchase any lottery.
