A lot of us are familiar of the saying “make your dreams come true” but in reality, our dreams are literally often the most random events and bear little meaning to our lives.
A woman in Thailand, however, became rich overnight after winning a six-figure lottery prize after interpreting a dream.
According to TheSmartLocal Thailand, the woman named Tithiya Bantaohome works as a hawker for a living near a school in the city of Udon Thani. She was announced the winner for Government Lottery Office draw on April 1. This was anything but an April Fool’s joke for her.
She took home a total of THB6,000,000 (RM791,429.62) with the lottery ticket she bought at Kasikorn Bank. While luck was definitely on her side, she took the effort to interpret her son’s dream to derive her lucky lottery numbers.
It was apparent that in her son’s dream, he met with a deceased friend who asked, “Why are you still struggling? Why are you not rich yet?” The friend, who passed away in an accident last January, wore a shirt with the number 1970 on his chest.
In his dream, the friend proceeded to throw a sack of fertiliser containing money inside. Tithiya interpreted the dream bought the winning lottery ticket with the number 472270.
Thailand is one of the many countries where its people believe that dreams have significant meaning. This practice is common not only in Thailand but in many Asian countries as well. Apart from dreams, some tend to buy lottery tickets based on auspicious dates or ages, or even miraculous events.
Congratulations to Tithiya, what a dream come true!
