Fin.

No no, it’s far from over. Haha. Recently I received an email/CNY greeting from the good people of the Finnish pavillion at last year’s World Expo. Attached was a dorky picture that I had left in their guestbook on that fateful day.

The dorky picture I left at Finland's Kirnu Pavillion last June. I don't usually look like this, haha. But the Mickey t-shirt, oh yes, it defines me.

Yah, they deserve to win the Best Pavillion Design (Category B), whatever that is, because I had a lot of fun enjoying the beautiful designs and interacting with cameras, video walls and computers enabled by Nokia.

Thank you, Finland, for delighting my World Expo-wearied heart and physique. Thank you again for lifting my spirits with the email message, New Year greeting and that dorky shot that I had forgotten, letting me revisit the grandest event in Shanghai  before I became a resident of this wonderful city.
