OOOOH.... these new guys are good. Right on the money.

In this case, it was a international cancer survivors' Dragon Boat regatta that my wife attended a couple of years back. But it's a pretty impressive facility on what I believe is a man made 'lake' expressly for these kinds of events, quite a few miles inland, not too far from Kuala Lampur.

I was surprised, as I said, to find that after flying halfway around the world and to such a tropical spot that they were still a few degrees north of the equator.

OK Cricket.. you're on!
