My First Ever Letter

Dear Sam,

There are three reasons why you should not leave your girlfriend to go to Belfast for New Years’ Eve.

  1. According to reliable source (from or something like that) London has one of the best fireworks displays in the world.

scan-9Please take note of number three.

Nowhere does it mention anything about Ireland. (I’m sorry, Irish people. I am however a fan of your St. Patrick’s Day.)

In fact, I took some pictures to prove it to you.




2. It gives everyone (including me) perfect excuse to dress up and get drunk and you’re missing out on some crazy Asian action.

I’m kidding, I’m still on my antibiotics. (crap.)





3. It is customary for a boy and a girl to kiss at midnight and you left me with roughly nine million people to choose from. Thank you.

Happy New Years,

  1. Hi Chabz!

    Your photos are amazing and your prose very well written and entertaining. It makes me feel like I’m there myself. I couldn’t say it more than I already have — I AM SUPER PROUD OF YOU! Dang, it makes me feel old when I call to mind my last memory of you, at the same time makes me reflect how my own twilight years are around the corner but haven’t been around as much as you have. I’m envious of those eyes that have seen so much yet blessed that you have the gift of words to retell the tales. Much much love from me … and I guess the rest of the RYPIT fambam 😀

    Ate Kaye
