Get Your Fortune Told - WW

Outside the popular Goddess of Mercy temple in Waterloo Street, we noticed numerous stalls offering fortune telling. This particular one attracted me. A large crowd had gathered around the makeshift stall.

The fortune teller was using an abacus to 'calculate' the events of his clients' life.

There was a queue of people waiting to see him. Any one who wants to have his fortune told has to take a queue number. wow

I find it amusing that those who seek his service were comfortable sharing their personal problems with so many strangers.   :P

Another stall displayed several colourful parrots who could pick lucky lottery numbers.  The owner allowed the public to touch his birds and take pictures with them.

Instead of picking lucky lottery numbers for my hubby, this parrot tried to pick his watch. And it really undid the clasp on hubby's watch! lol
