I actually got to sleep last night.
I wondered if I was just so damned tired but I guess the law enforcement team has made good on their promise to put a choke on firecracker sales. And is it me again or does the Chinese New Year celebration this year seem a bit muted?
But seriously, this is not a complaint. As much as I love my neighbours, having to put up with a firecrackers extravaganza while you’re trying to get some shut eye can truly test one’s patience although one does get used to it after 30 odd years.
Having said all that though, this Chinese New Year does feel really weird due to the quieter atmosphere.
