This is what most of our parents always tell us: Do good stuff and good stuff will happen to you.

I don’t subscribe to that belief most of the time.

Because, well, we all thought it’s old wives’ tales, right?

But something recently happened that made me a believer.

Thai Lady Won Lottery in 2017 AND 2018

According to Shin Min News Daily, a 53-year-old Thai lady, Suwana, won the top prize in the last lottery draw for 2018.

She won 12,000,000 baht (about S$500,000) for the 2018 draw.

According to reports, she had not even bought the tickets with the intention to win the lottery.

She allegedly wanted to help a lottery seller out when she saw that he had just seven lottery tickets left.


Now, if you think that’s the kicker: the fact that she bought the tickets to help someone out and got a huge reward in return…

That’s not all.

She Won The 2017 Lottery Draw Too

In 2017, she won the top prize in the lottery draw too.

Back then, she won an even higher amount of 30,000,000 baht (about S$1,260,000).

And she donated 2,000,000 baht (S$80,000) to help build a temple and continued donating throughout the year.

Netizens, unsurprisingly, were cynical about her luck.

But when asked, they don’t know how it could be done.

So next time you know.

When you go to buy 4D or Toto from Singapore Pools, don’t think of it as buying for a hope to strike it rich.

You know, 买一个希望.

So you go to social media and it appears that everyone is agreeing with your views. Watch this video to the end and you’d realise that there’s a disturbing reason behind this:

Instead, think of it as you’re going to donate some money to community programmes and helping the needy.

After all, the revenue generated from Singapore Pools every single year is crazy. With a capital C.



And other than using it for winnings and paying off wages and other overheads, the surpluses they’ve generated over the years (amounting to $7.1 billion) were channelled into the arts, community development, social service, education, health and sports of Singapore.

So they have stuff like the Singapore Pools Sports Excellence Scholarship


Where they provide financial support for students at Singapore Sports School and overseas sports training.

And giving $25 million for the Singapore50 Senior Citizens Package.


Plus, iconic buildings like the Singapore Indoor Stadium…

…and Esplanade (yes, you do contribute to that durian)

Pretty shocking that they received funding from Singapore Pools, eh?


Who knows? If you go with the right mentality, you might just be the next big winner of the ang bao draw in 2019.

If not, you could be contributing to another durian-looking building #justsaying
