My secondary school friends asked me out to join them in their last day of 2005 outing and since my other friends are still deciding their activities, I had went to join them..
We went to walk around in Bugis and then went to the opposite to find a steamboat restaurant because the foodcourt is full and the fastfood are unhealthy and we found a cheap one just right opposite of Shaw Tower (I brought them there because its cheap; $12 per head only! and there’s no barbecue-ing require, purely soup and steamed food!)
Then we went to Marina Square to wait for Sze Yuen’s friend and meanwhile we played at the arcade until 11.30pm when his friend came and we walked to the 7-11 which was totally flooded with people!! (damn, we wanted to get a beer!) Mood spoilt; we walked over to Esplanade to get ready for the countdown..
The situation there is definitely not as chaotic as the one compared to Orchard (during christmas), its much more controlled.. I guess there are more civilised people in that area =).. with alot of lighting effects to the countdown of 2006, we were amazed and they tried to ask me go out so that we can avoid being foam-sprayed but I persist in staying and as we countdown, every single second was so important.. As the countdown goes, the fireworks went off for 10mins and I kept taking picture with my phone risking it (there were already people spraying foams)!!
Right after the fireworks ended, everyone went off amazingly fast.. and some idiots were spraying foams onto other people’s car (I guess they didn’t want to waste it).. poor car owners =/
Then we went back to the entertainment center to get the pool table and thanks to our "kiasu-ness", we were the first group to go back there and we got the tables =)..
We became clueless about the places to go after the game, then we decided to go to Geylang because there are alot of hawkers that are 24hours there and I could meet Xiaoye they all as well..
Then I met them and went to Cabana Beach for a drink and we played the number guessing game which has a forfeit of eating chilli/tomato sauce and I was squirted the chilli sauce twice into my mouth; the feeling of the sause in my mouth without any food sucks to the core!
And we went to Xiaoye’s house after that to indulge ourselves in his Raspberry Vodka with Sprite Ice and played mahjong..
UPDATE: FINALLY ME AND TOX ARE WEARING THE SAME TEE ON THE LAST DAY OF 2005!! (Usually we won’t wear it together!)
