More than worth it, one of us was even caught with love at first sight with Miss Macdonalds, and he couldn't contain his bursting passion! I can't help but was suddenly struck with an enlightenment why Ronald MacDonald has such thick lipsticks, its a SHE! The girls, envious with Miss MacDonald's attractive power, tried to be like her. Unfortunately, they lost out in height =p. But good effort!
We then proceeded to walk around parts of NUS, in search of the elusive night creatures of NUS, and one of them is the majestic Brown Owl. I wonder why people laugh at me when I demostrated the sounds owls make? "Hoot Hoot" i went...and its TRUE!!!! I really heard it before!! Too bad the owls left their nest and all went for their own countdown, for we didn't manage to find any...
As if my crap wasn't enough, the group then seem to hypnotically followed me to climb 6 storeys high of steps, to search for the rooftop garden. I must say, either everyone gave me alot and i mean alot.....of face, or they are very obedient! =p Again, it was a little disappointing. Although the view was spectacular, the grass was overgrown and the place looks a bit messy. Then i realized it was about 6 years since I last came here. Another sign that I'm old.
Finally, we retreated to Forum and took some silly pictures to entertain ourselves. It was only 9.30pm! We took and took pictures, and Yi Xin tried to entertain us with a trick question with a dollar note. I managed to guess the right answer but too bad i couldn't keep the note as a reward...With still 2.5 hours to go before 2008 comes, what can we do?????? In the end we decided to do something unprecedented once again....we will countdown early!!!! And as if that isn't smart enough, Yi Xin found out that Brisbane's time is exactly enough for us to countdown in 'real time'!!!!! And so within half an hour, we count down to a new year!!
Welcome 2008!!!!! Yeah Yeah!!! It was an intriguing New Year's Eve for me, but hey we enjoyed ourselves didn't we? Here's a toast to more silly but enjoyable activities in 2008! Befriending 'wan sui'!!! =p
