Happy New Year to all my readers near and far!
Hope everyone has recovered from their boozy night of celebrations.
I am so fortunate that my parents’ apartment has an amazing view of the Burj Khalifa and so we had a little party in the comforts of our own home.
Our night consisted mainly of food and boy did we have a feast!
We cooked up a storm. I contributed with my tiramisu and apple crumble. Mmmm…
I apologise for the scruffy photos, I had to quickly snap them on my iPhone before they were demolished!
The water fountains near Dubai Mall were on display as we patiently waited for the fireworks.
Check out the crowd forming on the roads below!
People started making their way towards Downtown Dubai hours ahead, even before sundown.
With minutes to spare and excitement in the air, we all huddled by the window.
The fireworks were a beautiful and spectacular sight with everyone oo-ing and aa-ing.
What a great way to bring in the new year with my family and friends.
I spent my morning by the pool under the desert sun, reading and clearing my head.
What did you get up to on your first day of 2015?
Wishing everyone a blessed year ahead.
Sending happy thoughts to y’all!
With love, Alicia ♥
