Hello 2011

We ushered in the new year with a cozy gathering with friends at our new home. We served dinner at our outdoor terrace upstairs and watched the sunset for the last time in 2010.

Food was catered from Casa Bom Vento - deliciously spicy! Conversation flowed easily and we sat there for more than two hours before going inside to play mahjong. Later on, when the clock struck 12, we went upstairs again to pop the champagne and watch the Marina Bay fireworks. We even saw the flares from the ships at sea near the East Coast.

We played our mahjong game with a new mahjong set. As is our custom with a new set, we randomly picked four numbered tiles and Angelynn bought 4D for us the next day (today) - guess what - we struck 3rd prize plus a starter! A great omen for 2011!

The party ended after 2 am, and we were up quite late after that, cleaning and clearing up before collapsing into bed. Today we woke up at noon and we still felt like staying in bed. We dragged ourselves out of the house and drove over to the beach for a quiet lunch and a short walk before it started to rain.

Then it was off to Parkway Parade, where we bought a new computer (I'm using it now!) - our reward for finally getting our study room sorted out.

A quiet start to the new year, but a good one, I think.
