HAPPY NEW YEAR to one and all It is the 1st of January and a new year is upon us! I hope that this year brings everyone good health and good times!
My new years eve was a really good one! Neil, Rowan, Chris (some of the guys I have been hanging around with) and I went to the one day international cricket test match, between the New Zealand Black Caps and Sri Lanka!
The weather was scorching hot all day and the atmosphere was buzzing, especially once the crown started drinking!!! The game itself was really good too, with NZ winning the toss and electing to bowl first.
Sri Lanka lost a few early wickets but their mid batsmen put up a good fight and they achieved a respectable 224 for 5 after 50 overs.
New Zealand started with a commendable performance but started to wither after losing several wickets! They did however manage to keep it together and with only an over to go they needed approximately five off of six balls!
Well the Black Caps won on the last balls and the crowd were going crazy! It was an awsome day out!
Later on that night the boys and I met up with the girls and we all went out on the town. Obviously the drink was flowing and the mood was high and everyone had a good one.
At midnight we all went out to the lake and watched the fireworks display, which was quite good but not as big or spectacular as our good old Starburst Fireworks back home in Jersey (call Jim Bevis at Starburst Fireworks if you want 'More Ooh, More Ahh, More Spectacular' fireworks! theres your plug buddy haha!).
After the fireworks we went back into the Buffalo Bar and continued to party! The bar shut at around half three in the morning and we all headed back to the other guys hostel where we carried on partying! I eventually walked back to my hostel at around quarter to six in the morning where I collapsed into bed haha!
I am now actually feeling alright but we shall see how the day goes
Anyway, HAPPY NEW YEAR folks!
John aka Jersey out...
