Today is the last day in January.. I haven’t posted something to welcome the new year. I was lucky enough to be able to watch new year’s eve (NYE) fireworks in Sydney for the second time. People said it is one of the best fireworks in the world. I watched from Mrs Macquaries point for 2018 NYE. The view was spectacular, but I feel the one from Kiriibili is much more amazing because it is closer to Sydney Harbour Bridge, where the main fireworks located.
People qued from early morning just to watch Sydney fireworks at midnight. Some I asked, they qued from early 07 am in the morning, while the gate for entering the point to watch fireworks only starts to open at 10 am in Mrs Macquaries point. I started to que at 12 pm and have to wait a long que before entering the gate at 2 pm. It was so crowd, compared to my Kirribili experience, I had to que for just about 30 mins.
The good spots to watch were already full, however, I was lucky that the security guard let me in later before 9 pm fireworks. Sydney fireworks appeared twice. First at 9 pm, for family with kids who don’t want to wait until midnight, and second is the big fireworks run about 20 minutes. I spent time by painting while waiting for the fireworks.. and turned out I got 2 paintings as the results.
Thinking about new year, I also think about the 2018 experience and 2019 resolution. In 2018, I want to give more than I receive.. and turned out that I have abundant opportunities to give. For 2019 resolution these are the list: travel, pray, write, and depends more on God. Hopefully I am able to fulfill this year resolution. HAVE a Fully BLESSED YEAR 2019.
