It is just past midnight into the new year 2010. I'm staying in a Starbucks after joining the countdown. Everyone shouted from 10 to zero and cheering filled every space in the air at the tick of twelve. Happy new year!
^Staff were busy making coffee for the long queue of customers. Every seat was taken. Tables meant for two were seated by four. A side table not meant for customers was turned into a makeshift cafe table for a pair of lovers.
^The crowd was leaving after the countdown.
This is 2010. Again, happy new year!
