It's a brand new year 2012 today, where everyone's wishing each other a Happy New Year and happy holidays. Last night, like most people every New Year Eve, I went to join the masses for some countdown fireworks, this time over at Queensbay Mall in Penang. The Queensbay Mall Countdown Fireworks was a rather low key event, with some performances in the mall and fireworks at midnight, but without a stage or a countdown.

Taking my own sweet time to reach Queensbay Mall last night, I was wary of the impending traffic jam after the countdown and parked rather far. It was all good though, as Queensbay has become some sort like Gurney Drive with their seafront walk where we can actually enjoy the cool sea breeze while walking along the sea lines.

I was surprised though that no stage was placed outdoors, nor was there any announcer or loudspeakers announcing the countdown. Basically the huge crowd just stood around, families, couples, singles and waited until midnight for the fireworks display. I would have expected Queensbay Mall to do something nicer. Anyway, do check out the fireworks display that was let off at midnight ushering the brand new year 2012 that we are in now.
That concludes my Queensbay Mall Countdown Fireworks post. So how did your New Year Eve go? Did you spend it with family, friends, loved one and was it with a big crowd or perhaps over a candle light dinner. Wherever it was, I'm sure it was a memorable time, and with a huge smile, I wish everyone a Happy New Year 2012, may the new year bring joy and success to all!
