Skywatch Friday - Singapore River Hongbao 2011 - God Of Fortune


The favourite part of the Singapore River Hongbao 2011 must be the God Of Fortune. Everyone hoping and praying that the God of Fortune will bless them with good fortune and good wealth in the Year of the Rabbit.

It is real huge and tall.

So many people at the foot of the God of Fortune trying to catch hold of some lucky numbers. At certain interval, the God of Fortune will spray some gold confetti and lucky numbers (from 0 to 9). You can see many people turning their umbrella upside down and trying to catch these numbers. It is quite funny looking at the video that the people can move from right to left.

After getting these numbers, they will bet on four numbers and hope to win them in the lottery. The four numbers lottery is known as four digit lottery and you must bet a lot of win a lot. If you bet $1 the winnings for top prize is lesser, I think is $1000 or so. I cannot remember how much that is cause I dont buy any 4D lottery.
