Here's the post that I've been wanting to blog for a long time. I know it's almost a year late but hey I got two kids leh! I know it's not a good excuse but late better than never right? This post is very special because it's my first time celebrating New Year countdown in a foreign country. Chose Taiwan because it's not too far from Malaysia and the whether was just perfect! It was a really great experience to be able to see how people in other countries celebrate their new year. It'll be great if I do this every year, with my husband and children when they grow older ♥ For now, here's how my 1st time celebrating my new year outside my country goes.
On New Year Eve 2014, we got into the city early around 4pm before the all roads are closed for new year celebration. Traffic was already bad on our way into the city. Managed to get into the city and had a our lunch in one of their famous mall. Then did a little shopping while waiting for the countdown...
Yup, was still a pregger back then!

Headed to the countdown area of the city which is near Taipei 101.

We booked a spot at La Farfalla and The Terrace @ Humble House Taipei (寒舍艾麗酒店) for their "Countdown Fireworks Party"! They have a full buffet including free flow champagne! But too bad I was pregnant that time else I would definitely drink like cray haha! The food was fantastic too!
At around 11.45pm, guests started walking out to the sky garden and find a perfect spot for the firework and countdown to begin! Only a number of 100 of us I think, no need to squeeze on the streets with the crazy crowd and definitely better view of the Taipei 101 fireworks.
counting down . . .
HAPPY NEW YEAR 2015!!
We had such a great time celebrating our New Year in a different country and would love to do it every year if possible! If got money la! Haha.
How time flies, in a few days time we are going to say goodbye to 2015! It seems like just yesterday I've celebrate 2015's new year! But I definitely had an amazing year, welcoming my second son Ryan, did a lot of traveling too. Wanna thank my husband for loving me and giving me nothing but the best. And I am hoping the same and even better year next year! To a great year ahead! Here wishing everyone a very Happy New Year in advance! xx
