Talk about the year going past quickly, hasn't the decade overtaken it at lightning speed? I remember like it was yesterday when we bunkered down to watch the new millenium unfold and to wait for chaos to explode as Y2K appeared before us. More of a fizzle than a bang (the computer bugs, that is).
So here are some photos from this year's fireworks (the 9pm ones, it isn't midnight yet). They were suitably spectacular, with some new quad-colour ball fireworks drawing lots of applause.
Happy New Year everyone, hoping that it's a wonderful year for us all.
Update: The midnight fireworks! It's now officially 2010!
Don't know if it's a precursor of what's to come in 2010, but I was too lazy to walk the 10 minutes down to the end of the street to see the fireworks, so here are some photos taken from my upstairs window.
Looks kind of apocalyptic, no?
Afterwards, when I came downstairs, Tabitha cat was huddled under a chair, a little perturbed by all the booming... there, there, Tab, it's alright.
