Western Cuisine @ Victoria Station

A Western Dinnerr for 4 at Victoria Station on my birthday 7.7.07 a day that came into cycle every 100 years. I am considered lucky by my sister as having a chance to enjoy my birthdate with such a beautiful 7777 which is also my lucky number.
A celeb treat by my daughter, having booked the dinner to make me happy. Thanks to Joo for spending your money and thanks to Ping and Sern for lending your hands to hold the fork and knife and 'aamp'.

Why it is a significance Day?

KUALA LUMPUR: The number seven is important in the calculations and predictions of the Yijing (or I Ching, the Book of Changes), the oldest of the Chinese classic texts.

Thus, today’s date –
07.07.07 – is of special significance.

Dr Chuah: Describes 07.07.07 as a perfectly regulated cycle .
“In Yijing, everything is regulated in a seven-day cycle. So 07.07.07 can be described as a perfectly regulated cycle,” said Dr Chuah Chong Cheng, who has studied the Yijing for the past 30 years.

An academic consultant at the Geocosmic Centre of Yijing Metascience Research Malaysia, Dr Chuah also noted that today’s numbers added up to 21, “the perfect marrying age for both men and women.”

He said even in Christianity, the number seven was “good”.

“In the Bible, it is stated that God rested on the seventh day after creating the world and all life. He blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.”

Mano: Says couples must marry before 11.30am to avoid bad luck
Indian numerologist S.S. Mano, however, said it was not advisable for couples to get married on 07.07.07.

“For us, it is inauspicious but if couples still insist on marrying on the date, they should do it before 11.30am to avoid bad luck. It would be preferable if the ceremony could be conducted before sunrise,” he said, adding that it was also not a good day to consummate the marriage.

Meanwhile, a popular marriage registration centre here, the Thean Hou temple, will see 279 couples tying the knot today.

“Many of couples want to marry on this day because it is unique, only once in a hundred years. Although it is the norm for the Chinese community to choose a good day for marriage, the younger generation is not that superstitious,” said the temple marriage registration department officer Tan Jai Kong.

“We are expecting 08.08.08 next year and 09.09.09 the year after to be popular dates as well, because eight signifies prosperity and nine sounds like longevity,” said Tan.

Fifty couples are set to wed at the Buddhist Maha Vihara in Brickfileds while 121 couples will do so at the Klang Hokkien Association.
