before I go to one of the hotels who has a big party and firework.
Weather?we dont have muchit is like every day about 30 celsius,blue sky

Some tourists will go diving at midnight,fireworks will start this afternoon when shop owners start burning this noise making kracker chains in front of the shops.

The rainy weather's been gone for a few days and I swear it was 35degC today!

Nothing much special for food tonight, but maybe lots of junk tomorrow

There's a number of countdown parties at the bay tonight, the official one's at our new floating stadium. There'll be fireworks there in exactly 93min which I can see from the the comfort of my home cos I live on the 21st floor :)

Oh it is :)

At least here in Singapore. We get both New Year's Day and Chinese New Year off.

In addition to Christmas, Good Friday, Vesak Day (birth of Buddha), Hari Raya Puasa (end of Ramadan), Hari Raya Haji (completion of the Haj), National Day, Deepavali (Indian festival of lights) and Labour Day.

And unofficially we also celebrate Easter, Thaipusam (Indian fest of triumph of good over evil), Dragon Boat Festival, Winter Solstice, Chinese Mid-autumn Fest.

We celebrate diversity here

Pretty similar here in Malaysia + our Sultans(9 of them) and Agong's birthdays.....And we enjoy all the off days
