Lottery fever - rush to get rich as "auspicious" 100 kilo water monitor set to bring fortune!

AYUTTHAYA: -- Locals in Ayutthaya will be playing the lottery big time today after a huge "tua ngern tua thong" (water monitor) took up residence, albeit briefly in an Ayutthaya grannie's home.

 

Ayutthaya Ruam Jai foundation staff were called to the house in Phai Ling district by owner Pranorm Ditthareuangdech, 64, after she heard dogs barking and saw the massive creature.

 

It didn't take the foundation staff long to catch the monster and take the obligatory pictures.

 

Pranorm said enthusiastically: "I have never seen one this big before - it was not afraid of people at all. I am absolutely convinced that it will bring luck".

The appearance of the creature is viewed by many Thais as auspicious. The animal's pleasant name should be used for fortune purposes though many Thais use its common name as a vulgar swearword.

 

The lottery will be drawn today so here are the all important numbers.

 

The house is number 53.

 

The car parked there is 9329.

 

And don't forget that Pranorm is 64.

 

Please hurry but remember that thaivisa.com takes no responsibility for losing tickets.

That is a very big lizard, but I don't think I will be throwing any of my money away on the "auspicious" numbers thanks.

Big Cobra, a lizard, a car wreck and 2 flying mosquitoes, and anything that

will give them a reason to put a flutter and dream, dreams  are good if

you can afford to buy them....

I made the mistake of stamping on a walkway next to my house when I saw a tail sticking out from it. The Monster that flew out from under the walkway was the size of a small crodile. I must admit I nearly shat myself

So basically any numbers except 0, 1, 7 or 8.

I am so sick and tired of all this superstitious hocus pocus nonsense in Thailand.   When will Thailand ever grow up and join the 20th century?

 

Yes, I know it is now the 21st century, but for Thailand even joining the 20th century would be a major step forward.

Don't hold your breath waiting for that. These are the most superstitious 10th Century people on the planet.

Not so different from the West with horoscopes spouting similar nonsense in virtually every newspaper.

 

And apparently 74% of Britons believe In lucky numbers.

Its a lot easier to drink a bucket of song san and chase lizards around the back garden than it is to study hard and earn a buck.  Until then more lizards will die in pursuit of lucky numbers.

.................and they are Fast!!  Amazing how fast they can take off from a standing start.  This one looks like it was feeding on Soi Dog's to get that heavy.
