I am in Singapore.
I actually got here maybe a week ago, but took a side trip to Penang with my mother and brother. A culinary side trip to be exact. We roamed the city in search of the best wanton noodles, Penang char kway teow, Hokkien prawn noodles and lord knows everything else. Yum. It was a marathon of epic proportions.
In any event, I am back in Singapore. We've made it to the last day of the year, and I'm hoping it ends up being the last good day of the year.
And for the last day, today does feel good though. Really good. Something about it feels open and clear and I do not feel the normal stress around errands to run and people to see. I am excited to do nothing today except curl up and read.
In the evening we've a simple Chinese dinner planned somewhere nearby, and then we'll be meeting my sister, who arrives from Hong Kong this afternoon.
Happy new year everyone.
