In a blog post many moons ago, I asked if gambling was a bad thing.

The Chinese people have a saying, "mai ge xi wang", or "buying a hope". This, I feel, is not a bad thing." Read blog post here.
I have a habit of buying a few BIG SWEEP tickets every month. I would also try my luck at TOTO if the prize money is big enough such as the recent $5m TOTO.
