Can your face tell you if you’re going to have good gambling luck?

One of the books I’m currently reading is Joey Yap’s Mian Xiang Discover Face Reading- Your Guide to the Art of Chinese Face Reading. I’m still in the middle of it but I’m already dying to test out the face reading techniques on real people.

According to Joey Yap, one way to determine if your gambling luck is good on a particular day is to check the Fa Ling (法令), or Laughter Lines, on your face. These are the lines extending from the sides of the nose to the sides of the mouth; if you are quite young they probably can only be seen when you smile or laugh. If yours are dark in colour or look dull against your overall complexion, it’s a sign of poor luck. Conversely, I assume that a bright or radiant Fa Ling area signifies good luck.

The book actually warns you to stay away from gambling if your lines are greenish or blackish but, eh, I don’t think I’ve ever seen anyone with lines of that colour?! If you have green lines on your face then I think you have a lot more to worry about than gambling!

If you want to read this book too, please consider getting it from this link as I’m an Amazon affiliate and purchasing your copy through my links will help me to continue contributing to this site! Yay!
