In Chinese numerology the number 9 is a homophone of the word for "long-lasting". So today seems like a good day to do something that will last a long time, right? However, from AgarAgar we learn:
Today sounds like a nice date to remember.. 090909.. Lots of ple say it a good date for marriage.. 999 in Chinese means long-lasting. However, as it falls in the lunar 7th mth, aka ghost mth. Therefore no much weddings are held on this date. Maybe some ROMs or non-chinese are having weddings today bah.
In contrast, 080808 was such a lucky number that the Opening Ceremony of the 2008 Olympics in Beijing began at 8:08PM on 08/08/08.

The vagueness of Western Numerology is much like reading your horoscope or going to a fortune teller. Here's some information on the number nine:
In Numerology, the positive characteristics of nine (9) are selflessness, fulfillment, completion, universality, universal understanding, interrelatedness, compassion, idealism tolerance, forgiveness, generosity, benevolence, humanitarianism, emotionalism, and justice. Nine is also associated with accomplished artists and thinkers who are inspired by universal truths. Simultaneously, 9 can represent negative characteristics, from selfishness to extravagance to vulgarity -- essentially the opposites of the positive characteristics.
How very useful and specific!!
