New Year's Eve 2012

New Year's Eve 2012 saw us start celebrations early - about 5.00 PM on the outdoor decking. Celebrations might be to much of a description, although there was a bottle of bubbly associated with the close of 2012. I can't say we celebrated the birth of 2013 as we were in bed before the midnight hour.

It wasn't that we didn't have any where to go to celebrate the the beginning of the new year - we're not big on all that hoo-haa thing at the strike of 12.

So! We decided on a quiet time at home, drinking Champagne on the deck and reading our Kindle and Mini iPad. Later we enjoyed a nice meal and a bottle of Vintage Shiraz while watching the first three episodes of Downton Abbey on DVD.

Can I hear you saying - "Boy, that's a hard one to beat - those Simsies sure know how to party".


Hope your New Year's Celebrations were as exciting as ours!

  5. Love you!! We crawled into bed at 3.30am after drinking sparkly, playing with sparklers and doing psych tests! We really know how to party!! Oh yeah and we went into Surfers to watch the midnight fireworks. Still trying to get down for the weekend of the 18th to see you all before Drew goes back. xx

  6. Wishing you both a happy and successful 2013. We saw the new year in quietly, taking advantage of nothing particularly happening to recharge our batteries. Hope you are doing the same.

  10. QBAY RESIDENCES @ TAMPINES is another exciting development which will set to capture your hearts at the fringe of Bedok Reservoir Park and with a unblock view of the Tampines Quarry.
    The site is well connected to major arterial roads and expressways such as Tampines Expressway and the Pan Island Expressway. The new Bartley Viaduct provide direct access to Bartley Road, Braddell and Lornie Road. The Tampines MRT station, bus interchange, and a future Downtown Line 3, Tampines West MRT Station located nearby, which provides convenient access to all parts of the island.
    Well-established malls such as Tampines One, Tampines Mall and Century Square, located within the Tampines Regional Centre provide diverse and convenient shopping, dining and entertainment options. Favourite household names like Courts Megastore, Giant Hypermarket and IKEA Tampines are also nearby.
    Residents can engage in outdoor recreational activities such as kayaking, wakeboarding or enjoy a leisure stroll at the adjacent Bedok Reservoir Park. Tampines Sports Complex and Tampines West Community Club are also located about 10–minutes’ drive away.
    QBAY RESIDENCES is an ideal home for families with school-going children.
