Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year 2023 to all.
We were in Bangkok from 19 to 22 Dec. It feels so lonely flying in as I recall the good times when I flew in for my annual Echelon conferences at various sites in Thailand, Vietnam, and Indonesia knowing we will be meeting good friends.
All of us from Malaysia, Singapore, Hong Kong, etc. would fly in to meet at a conference city annually over the past 10 years. As we would meet in late Nov, it ties in well with the upcoming year-end festivities.
There are no foreign lands. It is the traveler only who is foreign. – Robert Louis Stevenson, The Silverado Squatters
No Christmas is complete without listening to these 4 favourite Christmas CDs of mine. These 4 together with Barbra Streisand’s Christmas Memories and Nat King Cole’s The Christmas Song are my favourite Christmas CDs.
