Destiny 命运 ...


Hainan Temple 
琼州会馆/天后宫 ...
Georgetown, Penang 槟城乔治市 ...

Perhaps very much like fortune cookies in a 
Chinese Restaurant table, 
but
these fortune papers are picked up after you draw a number 
from sticks on a bamboo cup 
...

you can find them 
in almost every Chinese Temple 
...
From the number on the stick, you then
pick up the numbered fortune paper, 
written in "old-Chinese language"
...
mine
is destined to be a turbulent year
...

Wong, I agree with George in hoping the turbulence your year brings you will be minimal or the kind that brings good changes! Sometimes turbulence is good for an artist!
