It's still there... My New Year hangover refuses to just go away!! It's not the bottle, but the mind. The mind is still filled with endless delights, of things unknown and territories unexplored! Oops, I think I'm just getting a wee bit philosophical... is this going to be my mood for the coming year - don't know but will definitely keep U guys posted about it! :)

Now before it's too late, let me wish my japanese friends with some new year wishes, 'coz today's also Japanese New Year! Shogatsu is the celebration of the New Year and is the most important holiday in Japan. Entrances are decorated with a Shimekezari. A Shimekazari is a twisted straw rope with fern leaves, an orange and other items of good omen. Family gather to their hometown and spend the time together. People celebrate the New Year with sweet sake called Toso, a soup called Zoni and Osechi-ryori during the holiday.

And last but not the least, there's something cool that I found out - ecards on a Bad Hangover! Check them out, they fit in with the New Year celebration scheme of too much partying!
