Lotto winner says ..... there's more to life than money
I found a very interesting old story about a lotto winner from Wales.
who won £1.3million (P61.8 million pesos) way back July 2006.
His name is Luke Pittard who understand that there's more to life than money.
It's not the natural habitat of a millionaire.
But if you visit a particular McDonald's store in Cardiff, you've every chance of being served by one.
Despite winning more than £1m (P61.8 million) on the lottery Luke Pittard decided to go back to work at McDonalds
He celebrated in the usual way, buying a new home and splashing out on a lavish wedding and holiday in the Canary Islands.
Then he realized that he really missed his job and workmates.
So he asked to go back and couldn't be happier, getting up at the crack of dawn to flip burgers for £5.85 an hour.
"They all think I'm a bit mad but I tell them there's more to life than money," he said.
"I loved working at McDonald's before I became a millionaire and I'm really enjoying being back there again."
Few customers at the restaurant in Pontprennau, Cardiff, realize that a millionaire is frying their fries or taking their money behind the counter.
Mr Pittard and his girlfriend Emma Cox, 29, were working there together when he hit the jackpot.
They hung up their uniforms and settled down to domestic-bliss in a £230,000 home with their three-year-old daughter Chloe.
But 18 months later, the novelty of early retirement wore off.
"Lots of my old McDonald's workmates came to our wedding and I had kept in touch with them all the time, so I just thought: 'Why not go back?'" said Mr Pittard.
