what kind of life are you destined to have?

there is particular fortune telling place along nathan road in jordan, kowloon that i find very interesting. at the entrance of the shop, they have pictures of palms of famous personalities – mainly people who have made the difference to the world.

i have always found the subjects of palm reading, fortune telling, aura reading interesting. while i do not dispute that there would many things about the world and its many cosmical layers that defy my understanding, i  do not like thinking my entire life has been pre-planned or pre-ordained in anyway at all.

the royal palm of the prince of wales.........

the palm of amelia earhart - the first woman who flew across the pacific

the great teddy roosevelt

i am not sure if this fortune teller is any good at all but i must say he has got some good marketing commonsense. if it all fails as a fortune teller, maybe he could highlight his skills as marketing communications specialist.

i am trying to match my palm to some of these famous personalities. i don’t have a match at all. whatever my palm says – i am sure it spells one thing – trouble!
