...you arrive at Deira City Centre on a Saturday evening and nail a parking spot within 3 minutes
...you enter the mall bracing yourself for shoppers, smokers and shrieking kids, and instead are greeted by opera singers doing a mesmerising, goosebump-inducing rendition of your favourite Lakme Flower Duet.
... you end up in the shortest queue at the check out counter, and even get a smile from the checkout clerk
... you get a free parking spot not too far from your building even though it's past 11 p.m.
You know your good karma's good run is over when...
... you stagger to your door, arms quivering with grocery bags and realise you've left the keys in the car.
