Happy New Year 2009!

Last night my friends Jenny, David and Judith came around for dinner, drinks and fireworks, needing their invitations to pass through the security baracades cordoning off our area on the North of the Harbour! we enjoyed a feast of cheeses and fruit until the 9pm (family) fireworks, then toshikoshi soba, moochi, prawns, teriyaki and vegetables with beetroot, honey and pine nut dressing followed by fruit dipped in chocolate sauce until the midnight NYE fireworks. 2009 is the year of Creation (creativity?) and 2008-9 NYE fireworks featured for the first time a continuously metamorphosing icon in the centre of the bridge that continued to spin and form different patterns between the firework shows. We were so close that the thunderous explosions should the earth.
