New Year Eve

The New Year begins for me with mild disappointment, even before the former end, as I anticipated my cousins to join me on the eve to welcome another brand new year. Though it isn’t a matter really to discus or argues or anything new to complain, as I have been through this many times but I wished they were beside me, like they nod for my midnight cake-cutting plan, despite whatever keeps them away.  It was for the birth of 2013 that we all gathered at our home and celebrated the night in a similar way. Thus I wished to recreate the moment. But at least there was enough greetings shared through phone calls during the wake up of the course to another 365 days.

Excitement is something always exits when beginning a thing or so in anticipation and for the New Year the excitement is something special and always stimulates a mindset to celebrate or at least share the joy though greeting each other for a healthy, wealthy and peaceful journey ahead. I know nothing is going to change big whether we gather or not for the eve, at least it creates an opportunity to share a bit and lean warm greetings through the winter cold night. The night was noisy like ever, while many pedestrians on foot following their faith, bikes and cars sped ferociously creating a bang to head out at risk.

I was at home leafing through the final stage of the book I intend to finish before the yearend as I took vows to read more books in the coming years, I find reading books comforting and inspiring to see life ahead. I also decided to watch enough movies (except Tamil) this year, since my list has been growing with the collection of movie titles from overseas, I want to watch at least a movie per week whether I write a review or not. Coming to the New Year eve, we had a small cake cutting witnessed by my only parents (since bro went asleep already) and cousins couldn’t make up, we spent an hour next catching with dear ones either calling or receiving at phone. Mom used the time to complete her New Year Kolam, she suppose to drew in morning, added colors under our sight as it is untimed to leave her alone to do so at gateway. The New Year day was spent almost in front of the TV, watching movies I haven’t.

It is a great collage of photos. I love cake with frosting and you had a great looking new year cake. I believe we too slept through the new year change. TV is good about showing us when it starts to change in New Zealand so it kind of nullifies the excitement. New York rings in the new year an hour before us. Have a great new year.

We also had a quiet New Year's Eve -- just the two of us. We watched the celebration in New York to get 2015 started, and then went to bed. I'm afraid we didn't have a beautiful cake such as your cake. I'll bet it was delicious.

I took friend's kids for countdown in the city where the fireworks brightened the skies at the New Year's bang! After seeing the stampede in Shanghai over the news, I had chills and decided to stay at home in future. Most probably I should cut a nice cake like you.

I have also decided to watch one movie per week. Next is Pisasu :)

I haven't celebrated the new year for many years now. I remember going out with my cousins in my bike to marina/besant nagar beach, but that was a long time back. Now we have all grown up!
