One more day to 2010

Tomorrow will be 2010, Twenty-ten,

There has been some sort of argument on how we should describe 2010…. Twenty-Ten, Two Thousand and Ten or Two-o-one-o?

It should be Twenty-Ten accorign to BBC. Anyway, it is last day of 2009. People will gather at Time Square, or Tsim Sha Tsui awaiting for count down about midnight. The Road will be jammed in Tsim Sha Tsui. I had no plan to go as I may use this day to review what have I done and what should I plan to do in 2010! Most of all , I am looking forward to see that this Twenty-Ten will bring Prosperity, peace and harmony to Hong Kong. I use to have Time with me...especially the December issue.
