with a few new friends and an old one. :)

caught the fireworks while scampering towards fullerton on foot, after having alighted from a very kind cabbie who suggested i depart instead of waiting with him in the horrendous traffic jam. i was undecided for a few minutes, feeling remorseful for leading him into this bumper-to-bumper situation, and he cheerfully assured me that i should go and see the fireworks. :) so even though i started 2006 in a cab with a stranger, i was with warm company and that's good enough for me.

stopped in my tracks to stare at the skies exploding with rosettes of brilliant colour.

finally managed to converge with clay and some of his pals, amidst a sea of peeps which must be like, half the nation turned out. ok, maybe less... but still a fuckload of peeps in neverending streams!

we parked ourselves in fullerton for drinkies and fun with hats.

or rather, the same hat.

not a single head escaped the evil clutches of said hat.

t'was a wicked way to spend the first hours of 2006, with some very cool peeps and easy camaraderie. :)

sustenance was required before a session of pool was to commence, and good old bak kut teh was decided upon.

this is not the first ya hua bak kut teh @ havelock road review here, but i must say the liver slices this time really takes the cake. the mostest tenderest i have ever sunk my teeth into... kidney slices were very well-cleaned, not overcooked, and was just the right texture. a very satisfying first meal of 2006 was thus gobbled down in much piggledy happiness. *burp*

by the time we got our arses to the pool place @ middle road, it was half an hour to closing time. :P nonetheless, i was happy to be holding a cue in the wee hours of this new year. i think, i would like to play more this year. :)

home to bed before sunrise.

i think i'm going to like 2006.

oooh, that hat gets around ;)

that was really nice of the cabbie - they say how you start your new year is indicative of the rest of the year, so here's hoping lots of kindness and lovely people are coming your way :)

Seah's is the best I've tried.

Except I forgot to get them. *oops*

never tried seah's!

sometimes, throwing in heapsa garlic helps disguise what's lacking in the herbal satchet. :P

my mom used to pre-pack plastic packets for me everytime i came back for hols. sometimes, she doesn't even tell me that she has planted them in my luggage, kinda like a minefield. one time, i was checked at the customs, got through, got home and had a delayed heart attack when i found at least 20 packets among my clothes.
