I am not into New Year resolutions because that gives you 365 days to be accused of procrastination. Far safer to do an old year resolution which has a life of … 11 hours.

Living in Dili remains a roller-coaster ride. What next ? Another generator failure, more bowel trouble, more rises in airfares to get out, a return of local police to the streets, more yogurt shortages, TL’s first aircraft carrier … the suspense !
But my water tells me that tonight would be a good opportunity for the “scrotes” to nudge the turps and have a handy excuse for having a bit of fun at someone else’s expense. My advice is no matter what you do to greet the New Year, try not to get a lift in a UN vehicle … and never get caught without clean underwear.
