Bringing down 2010 with Cosmopolitans, Kirribilli rooftop views and some of the most amazing fireworks I've seen to date. Andrew and I spent New Year's Eve as his brother's place in Kirribilli where we got to watch the fireworks from their apartment rooftop - it was perfect! From the rooftop we had a full view of the harbour and a decent view of the Harbour Bridge and tall sky scrapers. The fireworks were amazing, everyone was "ooooing" and "ahhh-ing" as each firework went off. So many pretty explosions and glittering fade-outs, the Harbour Bridge showed us a smiley face and an 'X' to mark the spot or yet represent the Roman numeral for the number 10.
An impressive selection of cocktails where being made at "Damo's bar", and after watching all the episodes right through Season 1-6 and both feature movies of Sex and the City this year - I finally had my first Cosmopolitan! Watch out Samantha, I'm ending 2010 SATC style! ;) Let's just say the Cosmos kept on coming and I even made an attempt at making one. Note to self - buy a cocktail shaker hehe
In our efforts to get back over the bridge to Sydney CBD, Milson's Point Station was chock-a-block leaving us with the only option to walk over the bridge back to the city. I'd never walked the bridge before - so yes, I saw the 5km walk as fun! :) The snapshot of the hi-5 hand on the Harbour Bridge above (which I think it's suppose to resemble) was taken when we reached half way. People were in an upbeat mood and you could definitely feel the positive energy in the air. When we finally reached the CBD, most of the roads were closed and everyone was walking a stray like it was the end of the world. Pretty funny if I say so myself.
So much has happened in '10 I can't believe all of it squeezed in just 365 days! Being one of the most important and crucial years for me, I have learned a great deal and took with me a much clearer direction of where I want to be and who I want to become in 2011. Cheers to a new year and blank canvas. May all your goals and wishes be fulfilled! I've got a feeling 2011 will be a good year - but I guess we will just have to wait and see. In the mean time - live in the now, but remember to keep your dreams near and never give up.
Happy New Year lovelies!
