new year around the world...

this morning, the husband woke me up with a "look babe! look at what we missed out!!" and since im still sore that our pals are in NYC living it up, i thought i should share it here!

in auckland, new zealand..

back home in singapore!
(did anyone catch any of this in person!?)

in moscow with sprinkling of snow...

in KL..

in jarkarta...

always romantic big ben...

i know i've proved my point but i have to add this in. 
if not i'll hear no end. in melbourne... :)

so someone explain to me how is it that in tokyo, this was all we got...

i get traditions and culture and those grand stuff. 
but a row of monks marching out of meiji shrine!?!
surely one firework or two can't hurt, right?

  1. Aww where's Sydney's awesome display? I caught the Singapore one from a friend's place, was from a distance though and so had part of it blocked by tall buildings.

  2. Happy new year!!! Ahaha..really, no fireworks at all? :O

  3. Hahaha, you both are hilarious. Hey my cousin sent me his shots of NY in Sydney. You want me to email it to you? :)

  4. These are awesome. The fireworks are amazing.

    Have a great new year!
