    I saw the full moon tonight, I thought it must be time for Loy Krathong, I guess you missed it this year.

    Do they celebrate Halloween in Malaysia?

    • Yes, I missed it again. It’s been 2 years already since I celebrate. Noon went for Loy Krathong in Mahasarakham and I am waiting for the photos from Noon so I can update my blog.

      Halloween, not many people celebrate it here. Only the expats and the young generations. Normally clubs will come out a halloween theme where people dress up in costumes. I saw some dressed up in costumes at the concert and Tyson himself dressed up like a red indian.

        Too bad that you didn’t get to go home for the holiday. I’ll wait to see Noon’s pictures, and does she blog? It’d be interesting to see her blog here too.

  2. Noon doesn’t blog… She is busy on Mafia Wars and Farmville on Facebook…555

      I’ve heard of Farmville on Facebook, but never heard of Mafia Wars, at first I thought you meant the term used for the political war in Thailand, and was going to ask you if she were for the Red or Yellow, Lol.

      • Mafia Wars is a Mafia game in Facebook. Quite famous among Facebook users as well as in Tagged. The one in Facebook is more advance than in Tagged.

        Noon doesn’t really support either the red or yellow. Her dad is a Super Red Supporter and her brother is a Super Yellow Supporter. So they can’t really talk about this at home else there will be a real mafia wars. As for me, I hate red colour!!!! 555+

    I think I’m neutral in this, but don’t like Red color either. My dad and second sister are also a super Yellow supporter. When we were stranded at the Souvannaphoum Airport last November, my dad didn’t complain at all, he was just grinning from ear to ear and seemed to be enjoying his time out there with the Yellow supporters. He also didn’t complain when we had to buy another plane ticket to come back.
