Monkeying Around

It's been a pretty busy extended weekend so far for Chinese New Year. We've just waved goodbye to Fuad & family who've been staying with us since Saturday evening. We had a jolly good time at the Bom Corner with their team, and Hamzah and family, when they arrived and spent a fair chunk of Sunday over at Shah Alam eating plenty amid further jollity. Today we explored KLCC. The capital itself is pretty quiet, apart from the occasional fire-cracker disturbing the peace, but KLCC seems to have been the location of choice for those who need to propitiate the gods of commerce on this first day of the year. I was happy to finally get hold of a copy of David Foster Wallace's Infinite Jest which I can't wait to read but will have to on account of needing to finish The Luminaries. I've made reasonable progress on the epic from NZ, but have been enjoying socializing too much to get close to finishing.

Motto for the day: Don't you monkey with the monkey!
