Downtown Santa Cruz in California welcomes the year 2009 with joy and happiness

This was my second New year experience in Downtown Santa Cruz,CA. First year was just like that. I wasn't so used to here. Now, I'm immersed here for at least a year. I went out to Downtown Santa Cruz to celebrate New Year Eve.

I had a friend there waiting for me to celebrate the evening. When I walked out, I checked the weather then and it was just 43, and I thought It's not that cold. So, I dressed up as for like a day walk.. just a full sleeve t-shirt, leather jacket and jean. I appeared in Town Clock,Downtown Santa Cruz at around 10 pm. I was 2 hours away from 2009. All people were eager to be in 2009.

As night grew deeper, I really started feeling cold as hell. The ball-numbing cold didn't last much because at 11:00 pm, county people started open air music and everyone started dancing on the beats. I wasn't left out. Everyone was anxious.

I didn't take much pictures and video footages of the moment, because I was enjoying there, to be true, it was damn cold to take my palm out holding camera. Gosh.. my FZ28 felt like an ice-cube. Most of the time, I was hand-fold or hand inside pocket.

This kid hinted me to take his picture and seemed more happier after I took his shot. I love kids.


Bubbles in the air, Town Clock in the back


Fireworks at Town Clock in Downtown Santa Cruz, felt like somebody bombed the tower, ah..it's just a fireworks


Local News Crew briefing LIVE on the event.



It wasn't that fancy fireworks as compared to others, but I really liked it. I love Santa Cruz.


Countdown started and everyone was mesmerized to welcome New year 2009.

After, shaking myself there for some minutes, I was heated up. Way back to intersection sidewalk, I got into one local pub and for few seconds I felt I was inside some hip-hop singer's music video. After spending some time there, I walked out, some casual see-off to my friend, I came back to fall on my bed.

Sweet dreams, I just welcomed 2009 along with other hundreds of people. This year, there wasn't huge crowd as I expected. dunno why. Last Halloween, was also comparatively so thin than previous years.

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU ALL.



Thank you for reading my post.

Prashant Tamang -A Nepalese in Indian Idol 3

CONGRATULATION !!!! PRASHANT FOR BEING INDIAN IDOL Here in US, we don't have Sony channel, may be there is but the region where i am, we don't have. Whatever ... am glad to hear that PRASHANT became an INDIAN IDOL. Update(Sept,12 2007): Prashant Tamang in Boudha Prashant Tamang is becoming sensation day by day as the final decisive day is approaching nearer and nearer. For his support, lots of people are convincing people to vote for him. People are relating his victory with nation's pride which i don't like.

Tamangs of Boudha has done this admiration for him. Normally, we see portrays

Do you have a Blogger(blogspot) Blog and do you know Google is deleting blogger blogs??

As usual, I was checking backlink tool to find some of the friends link (who has linked backed to me before) if they still have my link backlinked to me or not. Well, some of them didn't link back to me. I checked their site and the message I got upon visiting their blogspot(blogger) blog was something like "this blog has been deleted." As I was visiting some of the other blogspot blog, I found few of them got deleted too. I thought, may be they got over blogging. Recently more and more blogspot(blogger) blogs are unavailable or being deleted. Now, these things forced me to think why those blogs are being deleted. I usually check official google blog for any kind of stuff they are upto. Their blog was shut down too(it's some days before), they are online now though. But, it's quite eerie because this very blog of mine is hosted on blogger's server too. I don't know what happened to their official blog but it's confirmed news they are deleting blogs. M
