Yesterday, the deluge of smses had many of us bidding good riddance to the number 2009 and welcoming another number as if it is divine providence ushering in new hope and bounty. Alas, today is just another day for each of us to optimize the usage of time instead of mourn or lament its passing.
Last night we were at Pavillion, Bukit Bintang to watch the revelry as thousands gathered to countdown the seconds towards the number 2010. As the time approached, the crowd waited for the joint-countdown that did not happen (the organizers at Pavillion blundered I suppose) and for those there, 2009 passed into 2010 only on each individual's timepiece. How apt.
