Welcome the Year of the Metal (and lonely) Tiger (that’s me)

Greeting everybody a festive Gong Xi Fa Cai / Kung Hei Fat Choi and a romantic Valentine’s day! Though it’s a little sad for me because my beautiful fiance√© is not with me to celebrate not just the day of hearts but our 4th anniversary! (how cheesy can you get). It could have been a 3-in-1 celebration. So not to dwell so much on sadness and missing her so much, I planned on going around the city on New Year’s eve, feel the mood of the festivities, and of course being the pyromaniac that I am, FIREWORKS! I texted some of my friends and housemates to meet up after work so we can hang out somewhere… the perfect spot? Chinatown, of course! I bought a bag of goodies for $5, a good deal at that for a heaping bag of various sweets mostly present only during the Chinese New Year celebration.

I then went to Burger King at Central Mall to meet my housemate. I met a Filipino family who just came from Clarke Quay to see the fireworks. They said that there will be a 5-minute fireworks display at the floating platform in Marina Bay. Of course who would want to miss that?  I only wish that I have a decent DSLR camera for more beautiful shots. Soon! *wink*wink*

I was 2 minutes late when the fireworks display began

When the people rejoicing subsided, I called Macel up and greeted her a happy new year, happy Valentines day, and happy 4th anniversary. I miss her so much and I can’t wait to be with her soon. Haaaay…

Managed to capture the final minutes of the fireworks using my ever reliable Nokia 6120c.
