The $10 bet - Part 2
I akin it to TOTO because it's like striking lottery.
If you're lucky, you'll get the place you desire (for some, it's literally worth a million-dollar).
If not, you'll just keep betting till you...someday, one day, hopefully, gets it.
And I, one year down the road, am still betting on my chance. How interesting.
I haven't realise how desperate I must have felt each time I got a rejection. One year down and I've already made 3 additional bets, all of which I didn't even get a number! I felt like a jilted lover every time I receive that heartless email from HDB which says
Unfortunately, as your balloted queue position has far exceeded the flat supply, we regret to inform that your application has not been successful.
I sometimes console myself that God has better plans for me. My friends in turn console me, but ask me to seek MPs help instead (like whut....seriously?).
I'm no longer bothered to research on the flats, layouts and prices. I guess this is how one feels when you go through the same process numerous times. Get it then say la!
So today, I submit my 6th $10 bet. Again, under MCPS. And I hope I'll never have to pay the 7th $10 to HDB ever again.
