Less than a minute to 2009!! We started to countdown.. 15, 14, 13, 12... Denver also joined in the shouting.. 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!! BOOOM BOOOM BOOOM!!!!
The loud BOOM from the fireworks and everyone started popping their poppers.. POP POP POP!! I think it was too loud for Denver and he seems to be shocked! Maybe we shouldn't have stand so near.. My mistake... The fireworks was really bright and the noise was too loud for Denver.. I had to make a few steps back but was block by the crowd behind.. But the view was really BEAUTIFUL and SPECTACULAR! Red, Blue, Yellow, Green... See link below for the full capture. :D
Finally the 3 minutes fireworks display was over.. I asked Denver if he likes it.. He said yes.. but it was too loud for him. He closed his eyes a couple of times as I think he felt the fireworks is falling on him. We headed back home and he asked.. "Mummy, can I play with the sparklers next time?" I knew he wanted to play with them.. I'll probably get some for him for the Chinese New Year. :)
Anyway, it was an experience for him... and I hope he really enjoyed it.
