Initial reports from all around the Wuxi China Expatdom indicate that many Expats got drunk on New Year’s Eve.
Thor Lyndon, English Teacher, said he got “absolutely wasted!” on New Year’s Eve.
Farok Bagolli, an Albanian Canadian Expat, told the WCE Blog that he “got hammered and lucky!”
Duston Short, disgraced former midget sumo wrestling champion of the WCE, got so drunk that he reportedly ended up sleeping naked in the shower stall at pub owner Wally Droop’s apartment. Both Droop and Short said they don’t know how it happened.
Only two Wuxi Expats didn’t get drunk. Andrew Cowlinch and Bam Bam Cowlinch, the first father and son pair to be nominated for the Wuxi Expat of the Year Award in the same year, stayed home. They spent New Year Eve’s with Wilma, a local girl who is their wife and mother respectively. “I must be getting to be like the locals. December 31 night means nothing to me!” said the father who is also known as the infamous blogger Wussie Andrew.
