Happy New Year 2015

Dear friends, readers, commenters, likers, followers and others,

Thank you everyone for an awesome 2014. Thanks for your interactions on this blog. Your readership makes this blog worth keeping up and I can’t express my gratitude warmly enough for engaging with me and my posts and helping me reflect continually.

I think the end of the year is always so busy for everyone that it is hard to keep up with the blog. Nevertheless, Happy New Year everyone, hope you had a great one.

May your New Year be

A new year that brings luck and prosperity

A New Year that brings happiness and joy

Happy New Year 2015

I had two weeks off from work to spend with my in laws and boy it was the one of the busiest times of my life. Most of the days we were out and about in touristic places making sure we ticked off the boxes and places to take them. I am glad to report that, we did manage to go to many places and had a great time along the ways.

My New Year definitely started with a big bang. This year we went to watch the famous Sydney’s New Year Eve fireworks.

People were arriving early in different parts around Sydney Harbour to see the fireworks to try and get the best vantage points. We also went to city after midday and were lucky enough to get a really good spot near Luna Park.

There were long line ups at most of the places starting lining up 14 hours before the fireworks were to begin. Not a boring wait though as there were plane Aerobatics, boats of all sizes and shapes in the harbour, plenty of buskers around.new year fireworks (1)new year fireworks (8) new year fireworks (7)

We were well prepared with mats, pillows and lots of food and drink. The weather was perfect and we had a great time watching the 9pm, 10:40pm and midnight fireworks while making friends with people who were waiting near us as well.

Here is the video I captured of the midnight fireworks.

Also sharing 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The Louvre Museum has 8.5 million visitors per year. This blog was viewed about 380,000 times in 2014. If it were an exhibit at the Louvre Museum, it would take about 16 days for that many people to see it.

The busiest day of the year was February 15th with 2,613 views. The most popular post that day was Happy Anniversary my darling husband.

In 2014, there were 223 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 778 posts.

I just would like to thank each of you for your great support and appreciation which has constantly served as motivation for me and I hope that you will continue supporting me the same way in future also.

Bring it on 2015!!!

Take care,

New Year’s Eve Masquerade party

I always like themed parties. It creates a great party atmosphere and makes everyone seem different. I really wanted to have a birthday party for AS since we didn’t celebrate mine in a big way this year. But he was adamant that we don’t need another birthday party as on his birthday we were on board Carnival Sprit so instead I decided to throw a New Year’s Eve Masquerade party and I have to say we had a ball.

AS was excited as well so he was in charge of cocktails and drinks. He did a great job, as everyone loved his Margarita.

I did the decoration and had the banner that said Happy New Year 2014.

I bought a gold colour mask that went well with my black dress and AS bought a sliver one.

All our friends and family were wearing a variety of masks so it was a fun event.

Everyone was at our place by 7pm so after eating the entrée we all went to The Brighton Beach for 9pm fireworks. We managed to be there on the beach on time for the fireworks even though there were thousands of people walking to the same direction and there was nearly no room to move on the pavements.

It was a beautiful firework and it went for 20 minutes. The council must have spent heaps of money and I love the heart shaped design the fireworks made and other shapes as well.

After fireworks, we all were starving so dinner was served. We ate, danced and had AS’s surprised cake.

It was almost midnight by then so we all gathered around the TV to watch Sydney’s firework. The Sydney Opera House and harbour bridge sparkled with tons of exploding fireworks unleashed at midnight as Australia was one of the first countries in the world to celebrate the arrival of the New Year.

If anyone has missed it, here is the video, it is always so amazing.

After the fireworks, the music was still on so we were doing Macarena ,Mambo No 5 and all the other popular numbers. AS was dancing as well so it was a great evening.

Few of our friends were staying over with us that night and by the time, we all went to bed; it was 3am on 1st of January 2014.

Hope everyone one had a great New Year celebration. Hope this year will bring lots of happiness, good health and great company to everyone.

Take care everyone,
