Hi 2008

This year I wasn't around for the new year party as usual. I had to work over the new year like few people. The trip was to Mumbai, India and it was right over the new year period--December 31st to January 2nd.

However, I managed to go to a fancy bar at the hotel for the countdown event. It's pretty expensive, imagine a 1100-Baht 60-ml shot of Johnnie's Black Label, or a 350-Baht Heineken. But at least it's better than sitting alone in the room. By the way, I'm still confused about smoking law in Mumbai because when I asked the waiter whether smoking is allowed in the bar, he said no, I had to go outside to smoke. However, not long after that I saw people smoked. Well, maybe bad communication with the waiter. Anyway, I had a few drinks and did the countdown thing and enjoyed the music. Not a bad night.

I just got back to Bangkok this morning at almost 6am. Weather report at the airport said nice weather and temperature at 19 degrees Celcius. Seems like Bangkok is getting cold again. Cool. Not a bad day to start 2008 with in Bangkok at all.

Happy New Year 2008 to you all!
