Today is Friday, December 30 and the weather here in Penang is hot and very humid. It just rained heavily, but it did not cool things down much. As I am planning for New Year's Eve, I think of past New Year's Eves in Boston, attending First Night celebrations. I remember one year when the temperature was way below zero and it was a chore to stay warm, but with all of the revelry you didn't really care. Penang's New Year's Eve weather is a far cry from that of Boston. I imagine it will be in the upper 80's and humid here (upper 20's in centigrade). But the celebration is the same. Good food, good drinks and good friends. This year we will be celebrating the New Year with a Mexican theme, including tacos, chili and probably some tequila too.
So I would like to wish all of my family, all of my friends, all of my readers and the entire world a very Peaceful and Happy New Year. Please drive safely and see you at the gym after the holiday.
