Snapshots of Sydney’s NYE 2012 Fireworks

Golden Hour View of the Bridge

Phew! What a night! The fireworks were grand. How cool is that to have one of the World’s Best Party right in front of my balcony! This year’s theme is ‘Embrace’ and the guest of honour to ring in the New Year is Kylie Minogue. With only 4 barges, 2 less from last year, the show was not as spectacular as last year’s nor was last year’s more spectacular than the year before. I mean, the economy is hurting (tipping on the ‘fiscal cliff’ and all) and who has the money to burn? Anyway, this year’s fireworks costs A$6.6M.

The 9pm Fireworks only lasted less than 10minutes… so dissapointed as I was just getting excited… Well, at least I can watch the lit-up boats cruising around to keep the festivities going…

PS: Excuse my horrid WordPressing skills. It took me a long time to figure out how to post my photos from my computer and I have yet to learn how to use the widgets to spruce up my site. I reckon I need an IT crew to help me out here… Do bear with me while I am still navigating my way. Cheers!
