My favourite number is the bad luck number for Chinese.
When I started watching Man Utd, I like Veron very much.
His number was 4.
I finished 4th,
And that was well ahead of a lot of the seasoned school runners.
I thought I was winning the race when I ran past the fastest man I know in school, only to find another 3 in front of me.
All my friends joked that I am using some dirty tricks of short cut, hitchhiking motorbike and etc. Oh well, I was very dodgy then. Still, I guess.
Then I was roped into the 1.5km run during sports day. I has never ran in a proper athletic race before. But once the whistle went, I just looked down and ran. Of course 1.5km and cross country run is very different, the seasoned runners representing my school and state all sprinted past me after the 1km.
I finished 4th.
All my years in college and university, if I am given a choice to choose a number;
It would be 4.
Also 4 signifies someone crossed leg and no need to work - according to my mother.
One day If I am able to buy a number for my car -
dream on Choon.
