This thread fascinates me. I like the way it motivates people who've never posted to post. Sort of like how a Chicago election can motivate people who've never voted to vote, even if they're dead. At least that's what I've been told .

In case anyone is interested, "Cau Chin" means Uncle Number Nine, on your mother's side, in Vietnamese. Sometimes in a large Vietnamese family, siblings are referred to in numerical order. So the first born son would be "Anh Hai", which means big brother #2. Don't ask me why, but there is never a "big brother/sister #1". Semantics I guess.

So your uncle #9 would have 7 siblings ahead of him, and perhaps wield a bit less influence in terms of family decision-making. But if your uncle #9 were to wield special supernatural powers, he would gain more respect ...

When I was in Viet Nam, I was always #10. As in "You numbah TEN, Joe! Numbah 10, goddam you!. Beaucoup dinky dao!"

Sound familiar?

No. I have no idea what you're saying.

Anh Hai is the south Vietnamese term for eldest brother. The story behind its meaning is the eldest brother died on the trip from the north down to the south, so brother #1 is not used anymore to refer to the eldest.

Default Cau Chin Predictions

Can anyone be more clear if everything Uncle Chin says is correct. I have been reading these threads a lot and I was tryng to figure out if his predictions are always true?

Any word of wisdom is welcome!!

Long time poster here.
If you want words of wisdom then Uncle Chin is the man to go to. I don't know how to make it much clearer. Have all his predictions come true? No. He told me that this forum thread would be good. But instead... it's been great!

Don't be naive and waste your time or money. Take it as a form of entertainment but no more. A while back my girl friend took me there and got a reading. He said that we will have 3 kids ... yadi ... yadi. Well, I'm no longer with her! I did drop the $5 in the bucket on my way out and I felt like a fool! He talks very fast because there were usually lots of people waiting for the reading. He will say a bunch of things in your future that is usually true for most everyone. All it takes is one hit to hook a person, who maybe is weak in the mind, you get my point. He made a good name for himself and a lot of money. A self-proclaim monk that drives an expensive car?...wow...how people are so gullible. But hey, it's capitalism!

Here' my future predition for you: You will face some roads of hardship in the future but you will be able to move on. You had a close relationship with your family but there may be some strains at times...

I'm not surprised there is always a line. I would bet half the people in line are Cau Chins people gathering info on you... it's called hot reading. I can't believe in 2010 people are this f'ing gullible to believe this crap. Just do a little internet search for cold/hot reading techniques and compare it to the "reading" you receive from Cau Chin.
