Yesterday, I was asked by my friend who is the one who processes our occupancy permits for some big time tenants, what is my Chinese Year sign. And I said PIG. I was surprised when she took from her bag a good luck bracelet, with one of the stones as PIG! Even if I don’t believe in those things, I was happy wearing the bracelet. I saw my fellow EA have one also, and said it was given by her too. I has a Monkey stone since her Chinese year sign is Monkey. How nice to have received something unexpectedly! See, what the Chinese New Year can do? It makes people generous.

I wear several bracelets that is said to ward of bad luck. Well, I am not that of a believer coz I know that everything that happens is because of the decisions that we make. But nevertheless, I love wearing them coz they are very colorful and looks good if worn all together.

I forgot to mention, I was also born on the Year of the Pig. So, I guess, we have the same bracelet.

I can imagine your red swarovski crystal charm. It looks so nice, i assume, Well, yes there's nothing wrong to believe in them, it's just that it should not be meant as a means not to work hard anymore, so you can get the goals of your life.

Thank you for saying so my friend. I don't expect Mylot to bring me more money, maybe in some other ways.

It is all down to one's belief. If this thing gets stuck in my mind that the good things happening to me are caused by a particular thing, I will go crazy trying to protect it.

Thanks for sharing Dina let me tell you you should wear it, it will have effect, i sell stones based upon ones time/place/ exact date of birth, the logic is simple , your life is governed by those stars that were in the horizon at that moment you were born. When you were the stone either in ring or locket , it radiates electromagnetic waves that effects you, brings good luck, every year i sell so many, even to some in your country. To some i gave as gifts too.

Actually professor, i like wearing it. It seems to make me happy, knowing that i am wearing my year sign - the Pig. It seems to give me positivism, professor.

Every year whenever the Chinese New Year is celebrated, the happiest people are the vendors who sell all kind of good luck things. Every thing from small to big would sell for as long as they are said to bring in good luck. Hahaha! Truly this is one kind of cheating people into believing there is such thing as luck so that all their products would sell. Well with me if the good luck bracelet was given to me just as what your friend did, then there is nothing wrong with wearing and thanking the person who gave but I would wear that only for the sake of fashion but I can never ever believe that there is such as thing as good luck.

That's very true my friend. It's the vendors who benefit from this belief , the most. And i consider it as good luck, because it's the first time i was given a very nice good luck bracelet, with my Chinese year sign - PIG. And yes i wear it too for the sake of fashion.

What's even cooler is when people are generous even if it's not Chinese new year, lol! My sign is also that of a dog and I remember that whenever chinese new year comes near, flea markets and malls get filled with good luck charms and bracelets and crystals to ward off the bad luck. I also do not believe in that but sometimes I would like the style and I would get some for myself.

Yes, that should be the case, to be generous even when there's no occasion. Just like you, i am not a believer. And in addition, i am not a bracelet wearer because my wrists are thin. But this time, when i wear it, i saw that it compliments my wrist. I feel happy when i wear it.
