Well. It's the end of yet another year, and of course the beginning of a new one. I hope it was a good one for everyone, and hopefully this year will be a very good one again.
I had the usual end of the year soba noodles; topped with grilled nori, egg, ground sesame seed, chopped spring onions and a dash of chilli powder.
And grilled nectarine with melted brown sugar and Disaronno sauce, plus dusting of cinnamon and a bit of whipped cream as a dessert.
As to the so called "New Year Fireworks Spectacular", it turned out to be yet another disappointment. Pretty piss poor effort really, compared to what I will be seeing in a couple of hours on telly. But then again, it's the norm around here, isn't it?
