Chinese New Year Eve Countdown

The Spring festival is approaching, are you guys excited???

Right after my reunion dinner with my family, I headed down to Raffles Place to meet up with my friends for a CNY eve gathering and countdown.

 As the time was still early, we settled ourselves down at TCC and started playing board game - UglyDoll.

Thanks William for introducing us this new game: We got to flip over the cards until we spot 3 matching uglydoll. And the person with the least card will have to do a forfeit.

Wow, it's a fun action card game.

I ordered Chocolate of Wealth.

A little disappointed, it's a big contrast to how it looks in the menu and different from what I had the other time. 

After the drink, we slowly made our way to Esplanade to meet up with Leo and to catch the fireworks.

2012 is indeed the year of water dragon, the drizzling had quickly transform into a heavy downpour. However, it didn't stop us from going to the rooftop to capture the fireworks moment.

And right at the strike of twelve, the fireworks light up the sky.

This shot is beautiful, it seems like thousands of stars are falling down.

 Happy Chinese New Year!

The heavy rain basically ruin our plan. We intend to head out to Marina Bay for some photoshooting. But now we gonna head indoor for shelter.

 We lazed around at Marina Square and continued our card game.
The person with the least card will have to imitate one of the 12 zodiac animals and take a photo.

Check out some of these photos:

GF, William and Valentine got their forfeits.
Brought some sparklers to play with. It brought back some childhood memories to me, it must been a few years since I last played.
Happy Dragon Year. How creative of us to form a human dragon.
Yeah! Go, team Dragon! Lets live in the present and make it beautiful.
We were all drenched and wet. The weather was terrible, Leo was already shivering at one corner.
A photo with the girls.
Presenting the mightly new era power rangers.

The rain had subsided and we decided to head home at about 2 in the morning. Couldn't stand the stickiness in us. Departed with the rest and made our way home.
Leo and I then made our way back to the train station, it took us quite awhile to reach. Guess what, we actually missed our last train which departed 5 minutes ago. Argh, miss it!

It's the new year eve, will you be doing Shou Sui [守岁]with your family members??
