I know it’s a bit late to say Happy New Year but I guess better late than never right 😀
So how did you spend your New Year?
I hope everyone had a great time; be it partying with friends, an intimate dinner with loved one, or simply sleeping through the night (good sleep means good day so it’s all good haha).
Back in the days when I was single (not married but probably in a relationship, ha! ) and young (and restless) and have more energy (seriously this mom life is, lets just say, making me asleep at 11 pm – that never happened then LOL), I was always excited for New Year. Sleeping through the night was never an option.
Nowadays, I’m still excited but since (obviously) I couldn’t bring my toddler to New Year’s eve party, I and my little family, we usually just have dinner and watch the ball drop from home 😀
That’s what we did (again) this year but something a little (more) special for us was that, while we usually went for Italian or something nice(er) for New Year’s eve dinner, somehow we were so lazy this year (blaming the freezing cold weather for that :p ), and we ended up browsing for comfort food that’s close to home. And guess what? We found one! YEAAYYY
While we wandered around the web, we found out that there was Papparich here in New York. Papparich is actually Malaysian food restaurant but they are close enough (there are some good Indonesian food here in NYC but we were kinda bored and hoped for something else).
We called Papparich (+1917-403-816) and they said they were opened until 10 pm and we suddenly got super excited it was ridiculous LOL.
So these were what we had for our New Year’s eve dinner:
As you can see, it was a lot of food 😀 😀 😀
We were like wanting to have everything but obviously, we could not finish all of the food haha.. so we took the leftover home, watched the ball drop on TV, went to bed, and enjoyed our leftover food in the morning – still good and yummy!!
Anyways, that’s how we spent our New Year; nothing big or fancy
As long as you have your family with you and got to enjoy some good food, I think I have more than enough to be thankful for (well of course, a little booze, a little crowd, and a little tipsy would be fun, but nothing beats the comfort of being around loved ones).
For 2018? My resolution is to be more active and I hope I could make something good out of myself. Since time flies, I think that should be enough for this year, I’ll spare more of my dreams (yeah I’m a dreamer :p ) for 2019 (I’m not lazy I’m just being reasonable – that’s probably me being in denial but I guess we’ll just wait and see; I’ll keep you posted, promised! 😀 ).
So I hope everyone had a great time. Once again, Happy New Year! May all your resolutions for 2018 could come true and stay young and positive people!!
