[ 台北跨年 ] Counting Down to 2009


The moment the fireworks exploded from the Taipei 101 Building as we counted 3. 2. 1!
 
I’ve never seen it close. So a few of us mached  from the SYS Memorial Hall down the streets that would normally be filled with cars, buses, motorcycles to places where we could see the fireworks closer than before. We left the restaurant and walked for 30min or so to the area near the Taipei City Hall MRT station. The fireworks this year is…

not as exciting or "filling" as the one from previous year, as many have said and I don’t disagree. & it just seemed to be too short (188 sec?! I’m not sure how I got that number stuck in my head). :p Somehow I remember the one from last year lasted longer. But any way, we had a great time and we were there to count down to the last very second of the year 2008.

 


Only duringt this time of the year are we able to walk in the middle of a busy street.


Fireworks – Taipei 101. Last year the fireworks was sponsored by SONY. This year, it’s by the Taiwan Tourism Bureau.

 


This fireworks event has become a thing that people think they should go to watch or at least watch it from somewhere (TV, top of some building, from some mountain, etc.)
 
 

Heart shape fireworks in all directions.

 


Fireworks Particles!

 

A Long Walk for Heels.
