    My father in -law, an academic who did not have any idea about investing, lost his fortune by being too trusting.

    So my husband and I never gambled.
    I don't know how to gamble and don't want to learn either.
    Life's a gamble, sis

    No, if you buy within your means, it is not gambling cos you don't leave it to chance.

    That's given to me .


    You may say marriage is a gamble too.
    But it is not senseless gambling and it has brought me much joy.

    Same here. I was brought up watching grandparents and relatives playing mahjong day in and out, and fortunately, I wasn't hooked on it. In fact, I dislike all forms of gambling, don't buy 4 D, toto and I can even get bored playing the jackpot machine. I don't consider shares gambling as I paid for all the shares I bought. no contra play.

    Oh butter, wanna ask you. How many of you share the T-bone steak at La Barca? Last night both of us ordered one T-bone steak and one dessert for sharing. Couldn't even finish half of the T-bone and had to doggy bag the other portion. Tuscan style T-bone is too juicy and rare on the inside and I regretted not taking up chef's offer of a hot plate, after he carves the meat into pieces.

    On the whole ambience is cosy, very relaxing, comfortable and service is attentive, polite and fast. My 1 kg T-bone steak after discount is $85 (only on Thurs), which is only slightly cheaper than restaurants in town. I am not a meat eater and will order the stew and pizza on my next visit.

    It's always nice to try new eating places, so thanks again for recommending this fairly new restaurant in an unusual place. Just don't go with high expectations.

    My personal take....Chinese want to win....don't want to lose face....buy many properties, buy excessive stocks, are all different types of gamble....and it provides alot of excitement. and promise instant rich..bet in casino is considered a cheaper way of gambling Wich appeals to the masses, because u don't need to lose ur pants....and don't need deep pockets...

    My hubby and son love beef, so no problem for them.
    They also love their meat red on the inside.
