Where did we go?
Embankment, London to watch the fireworks at London eye.
Highlight of the night besides celebrating New Year in London?
Will we do this again?
Most likely not.
Some pics taken on the night.
We went out at 1.30pm. That’s my new jacket from Zara. Do you see anything different about Dav? hehehehe He is trying to change his image….
View of London Eye from Embankment. We decided to stay put just outside of the Savoy hotel (well more like I am lazy to head towards Big Ben due to big crowd + apparently you can view the fireworks anywhere you can see London Eye). This is one of my fav shot of the night… I am loving my camera!!
The streets were empty until about 10pm when ppl started pouring in. I think this is a great shot of Dav but the photo is abit too yellow.
Another fav shot. I think we were well positioned. The portable toilet is just behind us. 🙂 It is very essential to be near to the loo …. imagine very cold weather, after a can or two of beers… you’ll need to go to the loo. Plus it helps you feel less cold. In addition we literally camped there for a good 4 hrs! Definitely a must to go ….

This pic was taken just to illustrate how wet it is. You can even see the rain drops on his coat! And the various umbrella opened in the background.
And here’s a video of the fireworks taken using my camera posted on YouTube. (This stoopid new template cant handle the window, so cant post it here. Sorry – pls proceed to YouTube to see it)
If you compare mine with the BBC One broadcast, it seems like we didnt see much from where we were standing. Dav is not ‘happy’ with that!! Not sure if staying at home and watch it on telly is a better option. 🙂
Anyway, happy new year to all wherever you are!
