Only time can tell what to make of this 'wicked' lot

In the annual ceremony at Sha Tin's Che Kung temple, Heung Yee Kuk chairman Lau Wong-fat drew a stick bearing the number 95. The message on the stick, loosely translated, read: "In a splendid carriage you embarked on your journey. Today, you came home barefoot. Is it that you failed the imperial examination? Or did you lose all your gold in business?"
