Yi and Xin had not been to a countdown event before, as we thought they are too young. Only Wei and Kang has accompany Daddy to countdowns before, read our Anchorvale neighbourhood countdown for 2012.
To bid goodbye to 2012 and Hello 2013, we reached Gardens by the Bay at 9.30pm, expecting a hugh crowd, but it was surprisingly quiet. Daddy thought we can blame the non-stop rain, which must have deterred a lot of families from counting down downtown.
When the clock strike Midnight, we witness the first streak of fireworks climbing up behind MBS’ pillars! Kids cover their ears, vision glued to the fireworks.
We know our late night event is worth it, and kids will definitely pester us for future fireworks events 🙂
Happy 2013 ! wait… we have to first drive slowly 1 hour from Gardens to ECP :p
