Lucky 13

Tung Che-hwa probably breathed a sigh of relief when the number 13, neutral in Chinese numerology, was drawn in the annual fortune stick ceremony. 83, the unluckiest possible number, was drawn in both 2002 and 2003. But the gods had the last laugh. A branch of the Lam Tseun Wishing Tree snapped off. The Government is expected to ban oranges as a result.

At least in Hong Kong you can ostenatiously display your wealth. Those unlucky enough to be rich in China cannot even do that.
