Christmas Carols

This is my second Christmas in Hong Kong (first was in 2007 when I had just joined the job, and was in HK for a brief stint), and the place just feels awesome during the time. May be, its the same with all places with US and EU citizens, or may be its different here. Anyways, its an SAR of China, and to see people celebrating Christmas vacations is really pleasing. 

I have started liking the idea of year end holiday season, running all the way from 25th to the New Year. This is really an ideal way to unwind oneself after working hard for the whole year. Its like the weekend that comes at the end of every week - and seems like a perfect way to start the next year. I would be visiting Times Square today, and going by what I have heard, that place would be exploding with people.

Just Married!

I'm back in Hong Kong for the final few days of this year. And the past month has been eventful, to put it mildly. I JUST GOT MARRIED.

This may be one of the biggest event in someone's life, or may be not. For me, it is THE BIGGEST event of life for sure. Where else would 500 odd guests turn up just for me. Where else you get to change you life completely from that moment on. I am ecstatic, and hopeful about the future. There are so many things to do in life, and needed to get over with the marriage thing to move ahead. 

I got myself a new MacBook Pro as well - putting me firmly as an Apple Fan. Now I own their latest iPod, iPhone 4, and a MacBook Pro. Initially wanted to purchase the MacBook Air, but then realized it was slower than Pro, and was a good 'second laptop', rather than first. So here I am, writing my first post with the new machine, and feeling quite good about it.

Weather in Hong Kong has been very chilly for the past days, and the temperature has hovered around 10 for most mornings and evenings. I need to get a good room heater, and also some warm clothes. My existing wardrobe is quite insufficient for this climate, more suited to Mumbai's one. 

These are the last two weeks in 2010, and it certainly has been an eventful year. More on it on the next post.
