Fireworks and Food

Yesterday, I stumbled upon a random event …..

Aucklanders are in for a treat tonight with a fireworks celebration set to take place in honour of Team New Zealand’s America’s Cup win today.

It sounded cool, something to do on a cold Tuesday evening.  We took the train to Viaduct and reached the venue just as the fire flame started.  The supposedly fireworks display lasted for probably under 5 minutes (more or less).  We won’t fussy as it was a random treat after all, but most Aucklanders who rushed to the event were disappointed as reported today ……….

If you click on the above link, that would take you to the video on the entire fireworks display.  The crowd was overwhelming and I only managed a transient shot of the after event below.

The evening wasn’t wasted.  We took the opportunity while in downtown to dine at our favourite restaurant, Hanoi Cafe serving the nicest Vietnamese food you could ever find in Auckland.

How wonderful our (otherwise quiet) Tuesday evening turned out to be.

From New Zealand’s win in the America’s Cup to our celebration by fireworks.

Off we went by wheels of a train to join the crowd.   Reached the venue just in time when the flames lit up to a hearty  meal and home sweet home with happy hearts.
