…Happy New Year 2010!!!…
Welcome 2010! Well guys, how did you celebrate this very special event? With your family, your beloved, your friends or it’s only you alone celebrating in front of TV? No matter how you celebrated it, I wanna wish all my readers ‘Happy New Year 2010!’ Have a new and fresh year ahead and may all your dreams come true this year!
Oh yea, I wanna share my stories with all of you, how I celebrated the New Year!
Since we are far away from our family, so it is impossible for us to celebrate New Year with our family, but I did have had a vey very enjoyable and memorable New Year celebration with my baby and also my friends, here, in Nizhny Novgorod!
My celebration began on 30th of December, hehe! Me and Yun went to a very nice and romantic restaurant Karamel for lunch! Seriously it was the best restaurant so far I’ve been to in Nizhny Novgorod. The interior was really amazing despite the unimpressive exterior. Too bad we were not allowed to take pictures of the design of the restaurant. If not, sure I will show you more of the restaurant.
The food which we ordered, business lunch was really nice and the portion is very big! And there are varieties of choices for you to pick. There are 3 kinds of business lunch offered by the restaurant, European, Italian and Japanese and each type is given about five different kinds of dishes for you to pick. And the price is very reasonable, I would like to recommend this restaurant to all Nizhnians, hehe…
The day long awaited! The last day of the year! What would you like to do to make this very last day of the year meaningful to you? Well, I celebrated it with Yun and my friends! Together we went out to Gorkova Square (local square) for the countdown! The weather was quite good and it was rather warm last night! It was only -9 when we were on the road!
For Russian, they also followed the Chinese calendar, so this year is Tiger Year!
5, 4, 3, 2, 1…. Happy New Year! Welcome 2010! Bye-bye 2009! That is it! At 12.00am sharp! We were all shouting at the square for the very very final moment of the year!
But it was just only the nine of us! Hehe, why? Because for Russians, their celebration was at 1.00am, an hour later after the New Year! If you ask me why, well, I’m not so sure about it, but from what I heard from my Russian teacher, most Russians first count down to the New Year together with their own family at home before going out.
Last night was so fun! We danced at the square, watched the fireworks and also we took a lot of pictures! And here I wanted to share some of them with you!
Once again I wish all of you, Happy New Year 2010!
