2017 will soon be ushered in, with the New Year having already been welcomed in New Zealand and Australia.
I skipped the watchnight service today to give myself the leeway to visit some prime spots in Singapore to have a glimpse of the countdown fireworks and laser displays.
My first stop was at Marina Bay Sands followed by Esplanade and .Suntec City.
Not very impressed with any of the shows.
While the crowds were huge, the events and concerts appeared to have only local stars.
Obviously, with the economy looking uncertain, there has been some austerity.
Have a blessed 2017!
