Dunedin Mid Winter Festival 2012June 24, 2012
The 2012 Dunedin Midwinter Carnival was held on Sunday 24 June, 5.30pm in the Octagon following a postponement due to wet weather on the day prior. For only the second time since 1997 the Midwinter Carnival was postponed due to poor weather. The first time this happened was in 2007 and a heavy snow in Dunedin ruled out any attempt at holding the event. Since then we have been very lucky indeed - but not this year!
Though it was sunny on Saturday, the rain started pouring for the rest of the night and I had to postpone my dance practise for 2 days as well. I was supposed to lead a dance practise for Malaysian Night with Siew Lee while the leader is away but I really want to go Midwinter Carnival since it's like became our tradition =)
After tha parade, it was fireworks event!! Though it is not as big and nice as Malaysia, the feeling is different watching fireworks in Malaysia and overseas.
Boyfriend and I went to Jitsu for dinner! It was so freezing outside I can't wait to get some hot foods!
I'm so hungry but after starving too long, plus cold weather, my stomach shrinks and I can't eat that much. Drank a bit of hot miso soup to warm my stomach and gave me better appetite after =) So glad that I didn't missed the Dunedin Mid Winter Festival this year! I totally forgot about it until Siew Lee reminded me! I will make sure that I set a reminder for this event next year =)
After the event, Siew Lee, Devind, and I went to boyfriend's flat and we had movie marathon! We started the movie quite late. We watched Sherlock Holmes and all of the Jurassic Park movies until around 5am? HAHA. This is what we called HOLIDAY!!!!
