Just came back from the celebration of year 2006 at The Curve. It’s another year. Went there on year of 2005 and came back at year of 2006.
Dicember 31, 2005
Woke up at 12pm. Took my lunch and then online for a while to check my mail and made announcement of my new wordpress theme. At 3.30pm, took my car to a car workshop near my house for service. After about an hour, my car was now refreshed and went home online again. I saw my coursemate on MSN. I asked her where to go tonight for 2006’s countdown. She asked me to join them (all were my coursemates) to ‘The Curve’ at Damasara Utama. I joined them since I didn’t have any plan yet. I called up one my coursemate to fetch me to there. Total 8 of us will go there for the 2006’s celebration and count down.
At 7.00pm ++ – my coursemate reached my house and started heading to ‘The Curve’. After jammed for an hour, we finally reached inside the complex. Then we looked for dinner. After half an hour, 9pm ++, we finally found a restaurant that has available spaces to fit 8 of us. I forgot what is the restaurant’s name.. it is *something* Thai *something”. I ordered a Green Curry Rice and Watermelon & Lime *something*. After 15 minutes, the food had came. Then I noticed that they had not serve me drinks yet. I asked the waiter and the waiter came back with answer “Sorry we don’t have watermelon anymore”. Then I ordered another drinks, a Green Tea Milkshake. The curry rice taste not bad and I like the Green Tea Milkshake most. The dinner costed me RM23 including tax. Opps … now I realised I ordered a green food and a green tea.
At 11.00pm – we went out the complex to the road between IKEANO and The Curve (if I’m not mistaken that’s the place). The place was crowded with people. There was a stage at the middle of the road. I saw ‘Nian Sao’ (2 Malaysia’s chinese singers) on the stage singing a song. After hanging around there for half an hour, on of my coursemate suggested to buy some spays (the kind of spray that create fake snow). Each of us bought a can of spray. RM2.50 each. Before the countdown, we already started to spray each other… until our hair and shirt were full of “snow”.
At 11.59:50pm – the count down started.
January 1, 2006
At 12.00am – when the count down reached 0. The fireworks began and many people use the spray on their hands to spray to the sky. Wow, that scene was really nice, the sky was full of “snow”. The fireworks last for more than 15 minutes. I heard someone said/newspaper mentioned that it was the largest fireworks in Malaysia ever (well, not sure it means since when).
Bye Bye 2005, Welcome 2006!
At 12.30am – we decided to move out from “The Curve”. We stucked in the car park for 1 hour. Yes, jammed again.
At 2.00am ++ – finally I reached home. Took bath. Updated my blog.
That’s called 1 year…. and Happy New Year 2006!
