Hello & Welcome 2008!!!

Started the new year with a gathering with my old school friends... We've all been friends since we were 13 years old i.e. friends for over 15 years!!! What is so beautiful about this friendship is that, no matter what we do for a living or how old we are... each time we meet, we're able to let our guards down and return to the young and once carefree days of our lives.

This time round, Jackie who came back for a holiday from New Zealand, rented a suite at PNB Darby Park, near Citibank. At first, the night started out decently... cos Jackie's parents joined us for awhile (btw, we used to be so close last time that each one of our parents know the group members by name and in person...):

[From L to R] Jackie, "maemee", Colin, Daniel, Elaine (Daniel's gf)

When the clock stuck midnight, the fireworks display started. Thanks to Jackie, we had an excellent unobstructed view of the fireworks from the balcony.


I took a video of the fireworks but the file was way too huge to be uploaded here...

After the fireworks display (which lasted exactly 8min), we proceeded to play cards. Everyone was supposed to target a different person to drink each time (so that everyone of us drinks) but after awhile, everyone started targeting me and therefore, I ended up being the first one on the couch!

Honestly, I've always been a happy drunk cos the world seemed so much nicer then... Tee hee...

In between, we took quite a number of photos and videos... some of which I have absolutely no recollection of... All I remembered was that I had endless cups of Chivas with water first, followed by Flirtini and then Vodka Cranberries!


[From L to R] Jackie (little laughing buddha from NZ), "maemee" (me lor) & Daniel (a doctor who secretly wishes to be a bartendar)

But of all the photos and videos taken, THIS video here has got to be the funniest...



A drunkard capturing a bunch of drunkards... We actually posed for over 3min to take a photo!

With that, "maemee" would like to take this opportunity in wishing everyone a very Happy New Year!!! May 2008 be yet another spectacular year of our lives! Cheers :)

it was indeed a great night. everyone was 17 again for that night. i want to thank you all for the wonderful night. i have the most absolute fun and moments like this don't come too often these days.

everyone was just straightforwardly honest with their emotions - happy. we took a step back for that night and just enjoy ourselves. wish it didn't have to end.

thanks you all for such wonderful night! =)
