Today is the last day of 2005. Most of people in the city may go to join a big party, than count down "5,4,3,2,1, Happy New Year!" and be crazy all night.
Taiwan is 13 hours earlyer than here. I read United Daily News(聯合報) online, it said that TAIPEI 101 will have a firework show. And the show will be live relay on CNN News. I was excited about that, so I want to watch the firework show.
When I waked up, sat in front of TV, and turned the channel to CNN. "Damn it! It's already 11:08!(So, Taiwan is 00:08)" I said sadly. I guessed I miss the firework show. But, I thoght the news channel should report the same news every hour. So, I was patience and still sat in front of TV for one hour. Only CNN, I didn't change channel.
11:55, it's the end of news report this hour, the screen showed the firework in "HONH KONG, CHINA" to be the end of the news.
12:03, the news report started a new hour. There are 4 breaking news. One of them is "There was a firework in HONH KONG, CHINA one hour before....." the reporter said. "Where's Taiwan?"I thought. I gave up. I don't want to wait one more hour to wait the firework show in Taiwan. I would rather believe that I missed the news, not CNN ignored Taiwan.
P.S. Share with you the picture on the TOP. It's U.S.A. stamps, but the subject is Chinese Lunar New Year. Is that cool?
