Last night for New Year's Eve I went to a friend's place where she was hosting a Burmese Banquet in her garden to raise money for Burmese orphans on the Thai - Burma border. Burmese students cooked amazing dishes which we all enjoyed in a lovely setting on a balmy evening. We could see some fireworks in the sky from the lake in central Canberra which was quite close.
Today I've been working in the garden and in an hour's time will be going with a friend to see the movie "Australia" which has generally got poor reviews but I know many people who have enjoyed it.
Later: really enjoyed the movie but think it could have been cut - nearly 3 hours is too long. Fantastic scenery of the outback.
