27 Nov 2008 – Happy Thanksgiving
There is indeed so much to give thanks to, especially to my family & friends here and around the world. Running around like the MadHatter the past days was a challenge but fun. The Asian Civilisations Museum ACM- http://www.acm.org.sg is exhibiting an interesting collection of photos titled- Neither East Nor West
To Kenson Kwok- (over half a century! of friendship is quite something and May’s godfather) thank you for the company and dinner. To Eng Ting Ting- for all her help with providing orchids to the Thanksgiving dinner… not your usual turkey & pumpkin pie but lamb & durians! To Clement & Leonard- for your time with us.
Yun & Dika have landed in SIN safe & sound and jet-lagging.
Oh East is East & West is West and never the twain shall meet,
Till Earth & Sky stand presently in God’s great judgement seat,
But there is neither East or West, Border, nor Breed nor Birth,
When two strong men stand face to face, tho’ they come from ends of the earth – Rudyard Kipling
