Village Cinema

Today is the last day of 2008. In less than 24 hours, it is estimated that over 1 million revelers will be congregating at Times Square to celebrate the arrival of the new year. I, on the other hand, will be going to the movies.

So what do you have planned for the evening?

I would love to one year spend Christmas and New Years in New York. It just seems so magical.

We'll be in NYC in our tiny, cramped little apartment watching Dick Clark on tv, cooking a pot of chili and playing board games!

Happy New Year and a grand 2009 Ming. We have a very low key evening planned.
Still reliving our fabulous Christmas visit to NYC. The city is magical at the holidays!

A very Happy New Year to you, Ming! (And thanks for the daily fun!)

I'll be preparing the traditional soup (Ozouni) for next year. At midnight, I'll listen to the gongs from the nearby shrines. There will be champers, too!

I guess this is like the death of an old friend (2008) to some people and the birth of a new baby (2009) to others.

I hope 2009 will be better than 2008, 2007, and 2006. I do think our government will be inspired by our new President Obama -- at least I hope so.

I would like to see the War in Irag end and I would like to see the killing stop everywhere.

It is my hope that Japan will stop slaughtering whales and raping virgin forests.

And I hope the people will lose their clubs and no longer club baby seals to death.

What a world we have and live in. 2009 could be so much better than it will be.

What? No Times Square photo from you? How could you! ;)

Locking ourselves inside the house with all the windows closed! Personal use of firecrackers and fireworks is not illegal in the Philippines. The smoke outside is just awful! And who wants to go drive somewhere when the darned kids sometimes toss firecrackers at cars!

Happy New Year, Ming! Wishing you a peaceful and prosperous 2009.

Tonight I shall go to OlderSon's house, then we'll all go (snowstorms permitting) to his brother-in-law's house for First Footing at midnight. I won't be back home until New Year's Day. Meanwhile I have paid ALL my bills and debts, everything is ready for a new beginning for 2009!
I wish you good health, happiness and joyful abandon throughout 2009.... it's gonna be a GOOD YEAR!

Going to the movies sounds like fun. I'm going out to eat tonight and am looking forward to it! Happy New Year to you and see you in 2009!!

Here in Chicago, the subways and els are just a penny a ride on New Year's Eve [I think they charge the penny just to keep track of how many people ride]. We'll probably jump on the Blue Line and head down to Nick's, one of our favorite watering holes, for some bluesy, boozy live music with no cover charge.

I was planning a night in with the fella and being asleep by 11pm as I hate New Years Eve but have just been informed that we are now going to the fella's mother for a meal so will have to be sociable. Is that cinema on 6th Ave as I swear I walked past it?!

Happy New Year

Happy New Year Ming!

We're waiting to discover if it's going to be raining here on NY's eve! That will determine what we're doing.

Just popping in to wish you a happy new year. Hope to see many more of your wonderful photos and intriguing questions in 2009.

HAPPY NEW YEAR MING!

Portland Oregon Daily Photo sends you heartfelt wishes for the new year. May your 2009 be filled with good health, riches of the mind and heart, loved ones returning home, an increased respect for our fragile planet, and the cessation of wars across the Earth.

Great photo!
