[SPECIAL]: New Year's Eve

It's almost the second week of the new year, but still it's never too late to talk about New Year's Eve... yes? lol! In any case, this year I didn't have any celebration planned. All I had planned for the day was work.

Yes. Work..

Worked in the day at LV and had work at Hilton later in the night. However, as circumstances or how fate played out, I didn't go into work later for Hilton (which I still feel terrible about). But every grey cloud, there's a rainbow after it ( or however the saying goes...) Cuz, if I had gone to work, I wouldn't have been able to celebrate the New Year with my family and friends..

The moment Amy knew I didn't have work, she called me to ask me out to join her in celebration. She was gonna go walk down to the Yarra River or Flagstaff Gardens to catch the fireworks. I didn't want to cuz I was too tired to walk there and quite frankly, rather scared cuz I just knew there were gonna be TONNES and TONNES of people roaming the streets.

So, had dinner with momsy, sister and her boyf at ShangHai Dynasty. Really random place cuz everywhere else was full and it was last minute again...

But the food was delicious!!

The LOBSTER NOODLES areee exceptionalllly tasty!! I'm getting hungry now just looking at it T_T




After dinner, headed home and Amy was just below my apartment having drinks with her friends. So I decided to join. It was roughly 11:00pm when I met up with them.. It was really good to see her and her friends. Felt a little anti-social since momsy came. haha! Cuz all I ever wanna do is just stay home and spend time with her. Not that she forces me, but I genuinely really want to..

R>L: Mimi, MichelleZhu, Me, Amy and Chu
:) Really sweet and very nice girls! haha had a nice time

And don't ask me why the following pictures are blurry. I don't know why too :( I'm guessing cuz the place was really dark, and the flash focused on the back more than us for some reason..



They were initially planning on walking down to catch the fireworks, but I told them I'd be catching it from my balcony or just at home with my family on the TV. haha they got lazy and decided to crash
my house too.

They were more than welcomed to of course. But I did warn them though cuz I've never actually spent new year's here before so I didn't know if my balcony could even see the fireworks. Cuz there's so many buildings around me that it might be blocking the view.. but fingers crossed we'd get to see even slightly of the fireworks..

When the clock struck midnight, OH MY GOD!!! The view was F A N T A S T I C!!!!

At the same time, the whole sky was lit up with fireworks. Fireworks emitting from all corners, from tops of buildings! and the best part, you could see EVERYTHING from my balcony!! wooohoooo! :D







Here's a short video I took of the fireworks.

The most awesomest view I could ever ask for! And plus I get to see it with momsy, (also her first time celebrating NYE here) and she was sooo happy too! haha! In Chu's video, you can actually hear all of us going crazy and just so excited with the fireworks. We were constantly going "waaaahhhhh" "omgggg" hahaha it's hilarious!

I can't remember who said this but I felt it was really true and a good positive thing too. She said,
"With such a fantastic start to the New Year, 2013 is bound to be good to us." 
(or somewhere along the lines). And I couldn't agree more.

With every closed door, a new one opens for you, and it is up to you to decide if you'd take the plunge and go for it. I do believe 2013 will be a good year for me :) What more I'll be graduating from my Masters degree at the end of this year!! I'm super excited :D

So, have an AWESOME 2013 everyone! And T H A N K Y O U for being on this journey with me :)

Many more awesome things I've planned for this year and I really hope I can make them come true.

Take Care and Stay Beautiful
