Today is Hari Raya Imlek, the Chinese New Year, when, as Leon Redbone sings in this compilation, in China the “traffic is horrific”. This being in the midst of the rainy season, I think Indonesians should take note that ‘There’s No Place Like Home For The Holidays‘. However, as it’s a long weekend, I’ve put together a compilation to while away the hours when you’re stuck in a macet total.
Wherever you are and whatever you do, I wish everyone, especially the sheep, the holiday you wish for yourselves.
