Wishing all my readers a Happy New Year filled with joyful events, wonderful times and a prosperous year.

All of us on New Years

All of us on New Years <3

Before the New Year, my friends and I went to the Christmas trail at Kew Gardens.

I found it disappointing since it wasn’t Christmassy at all. Yes there were pretty lights that illuminated the trees and path to help you be along your way but it wasn’t fancy at all. There were speakers that emitted robotic sounds which they (the scientists) believe are the voices of the aquatic plants.

So along the illuminated trail, there were people who were “talking” to the plants by chucking stones into the pond or jar. However my friend believes it is just the vibrations from the stone when it hits the water; I kinda believe that more. Anyway, the transcripts should be available online early April 2014.

For new years eve we all went round JoJo’s house for a teppanyaki night. There was a LOT of food so we all filled our stomachs, ready for the night ahead of us.

Teppanyaki Grill

Look at all the food galore!!

LETS COOK!

When the clock stroke midnight, the TV on, champagne was poured and we were slowly counting down to the New Year, anticipating for the fireworks of London.

The fireworks this year were amazing. There was soooo much flare, color and variation. I think we had the best seats in the house – in front of the wide screen TV – others at the event had to stand in the pouring rain.

After the countdown, we tried to release some sky lanterns with wishes written on. Although most of us knew it wouldn’t work due to the storm and high wind, we still tried. We managed to light both lanterns after a good 5 minutes trying to block the wind but before it could fill up with hot air, it started to burn the tissue paper and create a hole :( so even after releasing the lantern didn’t fly very far…

Korean Dance Festival

After our failed attempt at the sky lanterns we ended up back at the house singing karaoke to English, Chinese and Korean songs ^^

Then at 4am we did up Just Dance on the Wii and did lots of boogie-ing. I found that the Korean dances had more challenging moves and actually make you move your whole body more then the English version. It also had Wonder Girls’ Nobody which Krystal and I plan to master lol!

I didn’t go to bed till 7am so I was really tired and had been leaving sleep until last night.

Hope everyone enjoyed the New Year! How were the fireworks for you?

With love,
Kekidoll xoxo

    I really liked the idea of lightning up sky lanterns with wishes written :) Too bad the weather didn’t helped.
    Maybe I’ll try it next year :p

    Happy new year :D

    Happy new year! That’s kind of odd that there was a Christmas trail that wasn’t very Christmasy. The trees look pretty when they’re lit that way though!

    I’ve never done teppanyaki before, but that looks fun. So much yummy food on one table! And oh wow, the London fireworks are so pretty. I like how they shoot them out to match the bell toll. How cool :)

    That’s too bad that releasing the lanterns didn’t work that well. I love that you drew a Bubble Bobble drawing though! It’s still one of my favorite games!

    It sounds like you had a really fun new years celebration! I hope you have a great year!

      Hahaha I know!! Kinda disappointed how it didn’t have any hint of Christmas in it. :(

      Teppanyaki is kinda like a BBQ but indoors and everyone gets to cook! Hehehe I think they were the best so far! However I don’t know if I would have liked to stand in the cold for so long hahaha.

      My friends just told me to draw something random and then came up with Bub! I also drew Yoshi (although he looked like a frog) and an onigiri :P

      Hope you have a great 2014 too!!

    Happy new year! It seems like you had a lot of fun! The food in the pictures looks so delicious! It makes me hungry. ;) I must admit that the firework near my place wasn’t that exciting, but I had a great time anyway! :)

    Wow. What a chuck-full filled New Year! I love all the food you guys had. Mmnn. I wish I could say I did anything special for New Years, but alas, I did not. Haha. I love the lantern idea… Though I’m not sure if it would be even legal where I live to do something like that because of the fire hazard!
