Today we’re making a brief stop in Hong Kong to learn about Kau Chim, or lottery poetry.
In this Chinese tradition, you kneel at the temple and shake a bamboo cup of numbered sticks until a single stick jumps out. You take that numbered stick and retrieve the corresponding poem or ask the “fortune teller” on site to tell you what it means. We did the latter and lost $40 USD while being told J’s luck was great and mine was terrible!
You can try it virtually yourself. Go to this website, click on the picture of the cup and your stick will appear. Click on the stick and your fortune for the day appears on the next page.
Good luck and happy weekend!
