January Theme Day: Photo of the year

A very Happy, Prosperous and Blessed New Year to all.

It's Theme Day again and the theme is Photo of the Year.
This photo is the last few photos taken on the last day of 2007.

It clearly shows 2 distinct Singapore icons. The Merlion and the Esplanade Theatres. I think it's my photo of the year.

Great shot! Singapore is always a favourity city to visit.

I look forward to visiting your blog more often this 2008. And you're welcome to mine, too! For some reason, my link was not included in the participating blogs for the 1st of January 2008 theme day. Sorry I wasn't able to visit your blog sooner. I was in transit the whole of yesterday. I am now back in Norwich after the most fantabulous time at home in Manila.

Happy New Year to you and everyone you hold dear!
