Hello Fellow Fumies,
At APJ we have a Saturday Question. Everyone gets to chime in with an answer, chat with other responders and it’s a fun event each week. Taking sides never means taking offence and everyone keeps it respectful and light, even though we can sometimes trawl the depths.
The idea is you’ll see it on the weekend or chime in through the week. Hopefully you will come back regularly and see if anyone has responded to your comment and you can reply to them. The aim is to generate real conversation and connection even though we are scattered around the globe.
Over 100 responses I will draw a Secret Scent Sample Pack (from my collection)

Saturday Question: What Are You Doing For New Years Eve?
One of the biggest world celebrations each year. Billions of dollar spent on fireworks, booze, parties and fun. You can celebrate in New Zealand, then fly to LA and celebrate again there. So much opportunity for revelry. Sydney is famous for its Sydney Harbour celebrations. Millions of people come from all over to enjoy our foreshore and shipboard extravagances.
My personal pick of Sydney’s Best New Years Eve celebration is
It’s the only LGBTQI New Year’s Eve party on Sydney Harbour and everyone is welcome, as long as they are friends to and of our community. Held at MCA Cafe & Sculpture Terrace: Level 4, Museum of Contemporary Art, 140 George St, Sydney you get a brilliant view from the Harbour Bridge, over the Opera House, up the Harbour and all the way around to Sydney City. All inclusive buffet and drinks, there are DJs and the best view of the fireworks in town. I was lucky enough to be the hostess for the first few years in the early 2000s. AMAZING! It’s not cheap but it is 100% worth it.
Normally I would be working New Years Eve. Last year I had my first one off in decades and LOVED it.
This year I think I’ll do pretty much the same. Jin is working.
Maybe I’ll have a couple of BFFs over for dinner. Celebrate how much I love them with food and chatter. Nothing posh or glamorous. Maybe just a bowl of pasta, some garlic bread and red wine. Fruit salad with cheese platter for dessert and cups of tea till we are full to the ears.
Fragrance wise I’m thinking it might be a good night for Sang Bleu by Le Galion. It’s high summer here so something refreshing yet dramatic feels like it might be a perfect fit.
