Spent the last couple of hours of 2015 at the Harry’s outlet (a raucous full house!) near my place with a younger friend, S, who also lives close by. We had prawn pizza, washed down with sparkling wine (me) and light beer (him). (My treat!)
They had turned the TV to MediaCorp’s ‘starstudded countdown show’, so when it got really close to midnight, the hosts started going, ‘Ten! Nine! Eight! Seven! Six!’ Everyone else in the bar chanted in unison, ‘Five! Four! Three! Two! One! HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!’ Cheers and clinking abounded.
Then colourful fireworks from the small-scale celebration a couple of roads away exploded into the night sky. Like many other patrons, we too rushed out to admire the sight.
A simple way to ring in the New Year……
