Mommy Growing up: Happy New Year!!!

Happy New Year!!!

Almost everybody went to Taipei to watch the spectacular fireworks at Taipei 101 that cost millions of dollars. For the remaining lazy people like us, we just got contented with what our university can offer. We were catered by a parade of colorful booths probably a hundred selling various Taiwanese cuisines and hosting games, a lively concert by famous local artists, and fireworks display on top of the 7-floored university library. After satisfying our hungry stomachs and that means surviving the heavy traffic of people especially along the food stalls, I, my daughter and some friends sat on the grasses by the lake facing the library, waiting for the countdown to new year. We ate, we chatted and ignored the freezing temperature. After the countdown (ended up with hoarse voices), we then went to a tea shop to continue our chitchats and further went to a movie theater to watch Tom Cruise's MI-4. At about 4:30 dawn, we then proceeded to eat breakfast together till 6:30 AM. I know it's a terrible way to start a new year (that is being outside of the house), as my mom would say, we would end up nocturnals for the rest of the year lol. Hopefully not. I guess this is what we get for being away from home, and having our friends as our only family here to greet the new year with.

Wishing you all a prosperous new year too! May 2012 be better for all of us!
