This happens in Singapore every Lunar New Year.
The annual Singapore Pools Toto Hongbao Draw that pays out $10 million dollars make these 'hopeless' or 'hopeful' (your pick) queue to fill in the coffers of Singapore Pools.
Spotted this during lunch hour. You think the queue is long?
Think again... It gets even longer! And much longer...
Then at the Toto booth opposite Dover Food Centre and Market. People from all races queue up. Even domestic helpers and school children in uniform in tow! Sigh....
If you are asking if I queued up together with the hopeless/hopeful?
No :-), for.....
My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus’ blood and righteousness.
I dare not trust the sweetest frame,
But wholly trust in Jesus’ Name.
On Christ the solid Rock I stand,
All other ground is sinking sand;
All other ground is sinking sand.
