As I end the riotous and highly charged 2009, even if it was a challenging one, I want to leave it all behind me and let it go with the matching fireworks here in Cavite. According the the Chinese (please correct me if I'm wrong), we need to light up firecrackers to scare away the bad spirits, etc. So everytime there's a firecracker exploding, I accompany it with a personal prayer saying, "shoo away, bad luck!!"
And to all readers out there (lurkers or not), happy new year!! Here's looking forward to a better 2010!!
