Where are you going for New Years, Petal? Fancy coming out with me to watch the fireworks, and maybe setting off a few fireworks of our own? Could be fun, eh? Dinner first and then dancing. Sounds good?
I’m sorry Petal, but these days I crawl into my bunk at around 9 p.m. and wish myself a Happy New Year. After all, 9 p.m. in Thailand is midnight in New Zealand, so I’m still on time.
