To think that in summer we had talked about celebrating New Year's Eve in Hawaii... Instead we found ourselves in freezing Luxiland on New Year's Eve. Fab, David and I spent a good week in a Messenger conversation discussing what we would do on 31st December. When the day arrived, because of the lack of alternatives, the only thing we had agreed on was that we would have dinner in the City.
And it wasn't as if we could really choose the restaurant that we wanted to eat at because most places were either full, closed or offered a set menu that would possibly not appeal to one or the other. The place that Fab finally found was Maharaja, the lowest ranked Indian restaurant in Luxembourg City, according to TripAdvisor.
I had eaten there many many years ago. I think it is one of the first Indian restaurants that I had ever tried in my life. But at that time I wasn't really able to judge the quality of the food because I didn't have any other Indian restaurants to compare it to. After having reading the feedbacks on TripAdvisor, my expectations were very low.
I had the prawn masala but I have to say that it wasn't that bad. Although very salty; I ate all of it. Fab and David were happy with their meals as well. Interestingly, Maharaja also serves Indonesian and Thai food.
We were now stuffed with food but we had no idea what to do next. We all agreed that we didn't want to spend too much time wandering around in the cold. So I spontaneously proposed to see what was going on at House 17.
It wasn't a bad choice in the end: we got sit down in a cosy corner, sip our Gin and Tonics, watch some very interesting looking people walk by and one of the waiters even kindly offered to bring us dessert. We had to turn it down though because we were still full.
Before we even realized it, the clock had struck midnight and we we had entered 2015.
Here you can see part of my outfit... I never really dress up for NYE and as usual I didn't know what to wear. Finally I settled on simple outfit: Yileste top (similar here), Zara skirt (similar here) and Asos quilted bag.
It was a fairly quiet night; not much craziness and no excesses. We shared some funny moments, wound each other up and wondered what the New Year would hold for us. If 12 months ago someone had predicted to me what was going to happen in 2014, I would radically have said no to certain episodes. But they did happen. Still it was a much much better year than 2013 (the worst year of my entire life).
I don't know what 2015 holds for me and I'm sure that if I learned about some things now, I would probably be stunned (in good and bad ways). But that's what life is about. Some things are going to happen but we can choose how we deal with and react to them. We always have a choice. Ha, and hopefully, we will choose a more organized NYE next time.
