NYE 2009: Rambo meets Dorothy's Toto, Randwick (31 Dec 2009 – 1 Jan 2010)

Don't move or Toto gets it!

I hope all my readers enjoyed their NYE celebrations. I spent my last hours of 2009 and early hours of 2010 at my brothers Hollywood themed party — come as your favourite star or movie character. It was a great theme and we were graced by the presence of many famous characters including Rambo (myself), Charlie Chaplin, Dorothy from Wizard of Oz with Toto, Indiana Jones, Crocodile Dundee, Cruella De Vil, Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany's, Jack Sparrow from Pirates of the Caribbean, Robert De Niro in Taxi Driver, Sigourney Weaver as Ripely in Alien, Jason from Friday the 13th and Tom Cruise in Top Gun. Guests brought a dish to share and I made some garlic prawn skewers which worked well on the BBQ. Views of the city skyline were had from the balcony as well as the roof top to watch the Sydney Harbour fireworks in the distance.

Toto helps to cook the garlic prawns — don't get too close!
