Goodbye 2006

I prefer to have a peaceful and quiet new year eve spent together with my beloved ones. I don't like to go to places with huge crowds. Mmm... Thinking about getting stuck in the heavy traffic jam. Joining the crowds for the countdown or any big hoo-hah celebration? These are not our cuppa tea. Simple is Good.

This year, we had few simple home-cooked dishes for New Year Eve dinner together with my father in law and sister in law at my place. My hubby is the chef of the day. He prepared & cooked the dishes. :)

Candles, but this was not the "candle light" dinner...

... Coz of the dim lights from the Ceiling lamps and Wall lamps :P

My drinks for the night - White wine and Coke.

This was how I spent my new year eve. How you spend yours?

This was my last photo of the year 2006. Taken at the last few minutes of 2006, before the clock strikes 12.

I did not take a last photo of 2006 on the last day! Now only you tell me!! Apaliao!! In fact, I only watched fireworks going off in the skies.. No candlelit dinner.. No sotong..

2006 ended with a rude awakening just before midnight when my neighbour's fireworks exploded on the ground instead of mid-air!! My little girl was also frightened by the loud bang... but after that, we all slept well..well into 2007... a good 2007 sleep! Ha ha ha!

LB,
Mmmm.... at least u took the first photo of 2007, right? :P I watched few fireworks from afar. Well, the fireworks are not as great as the past few years... Economy "meleset" kua? :P

No Sotong? I didn't have sotong too yeterday night, but on 30th December :D

hehe, u reminds me of the fireworks by the neighbour next doors when I was in Sarikei. The early morning explosion :P

Sleep well into 2007? That's a great way to start a new year... with plenty of rest :)

sbanboy,
Hehehe.. I remember doing the same thing on millennium new year eve (31 December 1999) too. I still remember giving spinal anaesthesia to a lady for Caesarean Section/LSCS with indication Poor Progress around 11:30 pm, 31/12/1999, inside the main Operating Theatre in Sarawak General Hospital in Kuching.

Gosh.. How time flies...

will,
hehhe... but not as "happening" as yours, joining the Countdown Party in 1U ;)

We almost missed the New Years. Very quiet at home drinking apple cider for toasts. Well except for the neighbors firecracker barrage.

Chen said...
