Okay, out of respect for my blog visitor, very-senior-citizen monsterball, who has a meeting with a Bhikkhu, a Buddhist monk, I won’t attack Anwar until at least after Monday wakakaka. I don’t want to earn demerits (bad karma) for disturbing his mental tranquility which he requires (but given his intrinsic character, is unlikely to achieve, wakakaka) when he meets a member of the Sangha.
Instead, I would like to raise a trivia question, on whether this Monday should be numerically referred to as 109 or 901? I have read of both being used in the last few days.
By Chinese tradition and American dating convention, it would be 109, where the month precedes the date, like 9/11 (surely you know this one), or 7/7 (don’t know? See bottom for answer).
The Chinese Taiwanese celebrates their national day on 10/10 or Double-Ten. Officially Chinese Taiwan celebrates this day in commemoration of the start of the Wuchang Uprising on 10 October 1911, which led to the collapse of the Manchu Qing Dynasty and the establishment of a republican China on January 1, 1912, but I suspect the founding fathers of Taiwan (previously calling itself the Republic of China) must have chosen the Double-Ten date to provide those auspicious very ‘ong’ (lucky) number for maximum luck, while the mainlanders do it on 10/1.
For more of such numerological calendaring please see my KTemoc Kongsamkok’s post Secret Society of Handsome Chinese Cryptographers wakakaka.
7-7 or 7/7 = London bombings in 2005
