It was Susie, one of my lady friends, who gave a lead to the White Dato. The night before we had a lovely party, enjoying our cooking. As Susie had came from Kuala Lumpur she had stayed in the same house as we. Susie was immensely interested in what Adonijah had to say about the strange events which used to occur in Fraser's Hill. It was the first time she heard that Fraser's Hill actually has a high angel, a "malakait perlindung".
Adonijah said that the Fraser's Hill people should ask this White Dato for help. The White Dato is a sort of father figure and the people like his children. As a father would love to give to his children the White Dato can be asked for assistance.
The term "strike a lottery" was even mentioned. It was then that Susie pointed out that there was a shrine at Singapore House to a local dato. This shrine was built by a couple who were saved in an accident at the spot. They saw the white figure and attributed their salvation to the White Dato and built him a shrine. That is another more detailed story. Susie wanted to take Adonijah to the shrine.
So, there was a leisurely drive along the natural scenic route to the shrine. We got down and walked to the shrine. Susie said that along the inner roof of the shrine there is a number. Some of the local people had visited the shrine to ask for lucky numbers. Yes, they did struck! That number along the inner roof may change according to the visitor. Thus, the shrine gained a local reputation as a source of lucky numbers. The couple maintained the shrine and there would be annual celebrations around August as thanksgiving to the deity.
We were excited that indeed the guardian angel of the place was helping our people. In fact, some did not even visit the shrine and also got lucky numbers which struck.
