The How-Where-Who I spent my New Years Eve.
Fireworks. There's no other way I can imagine how I'd be spending New Years here in the Emirates but to watch The Royal Gorgeousness set himself on fire! That's why I came to a conclusion that for now, Eiffel Tower, Times Square, and Disneyland can wait. I can never seem to have enough of it yet. Not just yet.
Downtown Dubai. I was there. You weren't.
The ones I kissed at midnight. La familia, Emirates edition. We ended up watching from the parking lot a few blocks away from The Dubai Mall. Since we didn't dare brave the crowd, it was already late when we arrived around the place, we looked for a potential vantage point around the area - luckily we did!
This is my second year in a row spending New Years just watching the fireworks. Not complaining though, just sharing. I can just watch the fireworks all day everyday and I will be fine. It's one of the few things I'd gladly do in a heartbeat. One of the many things that can make me cry a good-60-sec-cry. I'm a dork for fireworks like that! And wait till you see what Dubai has to offer. Come with?

When there is nothing left to burn, you gotta set yourself on fire.
I got you, Burj Khalifa. Copy that. Let's this 2012!
