She wanted her lost 4-D tickets back so badly that she has gone to the police station three times to claim them.
Madam Julia Tong, 50, a cleaner, has been disappointed each time.
But she is not giving up. After all, at stake is $5,445, the amount she would have won from three winning numbers if she had not lost the five tickets last Saturday.
On Tuesday evening, she lodged a police report about the tickets which were found by a hotel housekeeper.
“I am not being greedy, but what is mine is mine,” Madam Tong said.
