MY NEW YEARS EVE STORY
Happy New Year Blogsphere!!!!

When I was a kid I usually welcome New Year with different style, pahiga, patagilid, patalon, or minsan padapa! Hehehe!, Just Kidding!. Seriously, I always celebrated New Years Eve with my family, a gathering slash reunion slash food slash putukan, but since I was far away from them, I mostly welcome New Years Eve by myself alone, sometimes in bed & sometimes with my friends. Until last year when I got the chance to celebrated it along the road of Taipei City wherein the famous Taipei 101 is located. With my brother & some of his friends we welcomed 2010 with a BANG.

Now, this time, I welcome 2011 (the rabbit year), blissfully with some of my friends. Again at Taiwan's proud highest building, the so-called yi[1]-ling[0]-yi[1], in chinese. This year will be marking the Taiwan's millennium year (11 years behind the normal year). Hindi ko rin alam kung bakit sila na-lag ng 11 years, consult kuya google na lang, for more details. Anyways, I & my buddies sat along the road fronting the Taipei City Hall and in between Citi Bank Building, where a good spot for fireworks viewing is located.

At dahil year ni Bugs Bunny ngayong 2011, nagpapiktyur ako sa dalawang rabbit na ito, na nagliligawan sa gitna ng gabi. Ngayon kung gusto mo naman silang bilhin, hayun ang presyo sa may carrot, in $NT(taiwan dollars)...


Siyempre kapag new year kanya-kanyang pasikat, piktyur doon, piktyur dito na animo'y ngayon lang nakakita ng kamera, gaya ng nasa baba...



Bago ang main event kelangan mo ding kuhanan ang before and after ng lugar na pagdadausan ng fireworks display para masaya, tapos kapag ok at meron ka ng picture ng before at after pede mo ng simulan ang paghanap kung alin ang naiba....


At higit sa lahat, sa oras ng putukan, kelangan sobra sa isa ang dala mong baterya ng camera (kung isa lang ang meron ka, Motolite pede na yun), dahil kung hindi, uuwi ka lang luhaan dahil wala kang maipapakitang ibidinsya sa mga fwendz mo...

At siyempre bago kayo umuwi, picture ulet...(hindi namin kasama si ateng naka minnie mouse na ribbon! umeksena lang at feeling close).


After the Fireworks display, the 101 skyscraper showed the message 100 RheartC, meaning the Republic Loves China, 100 means millennium year for Taiwan...



It is indeed a memorable event for me. You want to know why? Kase ito na yata ang pinakamahabang alay lakad na nalakad ko, mga sampung MRT station lang naman ang nilagpasan namin bago namin narating ang Main Train Station (wherein pede kang magtransfer from MRT to Train going home), parang nilakad mo lang naman ang Baclaran station to Central station ng LRT sa atin. Oh by the way, we are interviewed by a local TV network here na nagcocover ng whats happening before the countdown, sayang nga at hindi namin nakuhanan ng picture si ateng reporter.
