Hello there guys! It’s G and it’s been a minute with you guys but here we are, it’s a freaking new year and I just cannot believe we said goodbye to 2018. 2018 was one year I will never forget in my life, it was filled with mixed emotions and lots of low lows. I sit back and look at all the moments and I can’t help but feel relief that it all ended well and on a good note. I found my self after being lost in a cloud of emotions and I thank God for everything but we are not going to talk about that today. I welcomed 2019 in simple style and you bet it was a good night.
New Year’s Eve is said to be the most anticipated celebrated holiday of the year and after I received an invite to celebrate at Stephanie Ocean Resort I was more than excited to be part of their annual exclusive NYE dinner party. Stephanie Ocean Resort is an amazing beach resort offering accommodation and it is perfect for a getaway when in Malindi. They have villas and hotel rooms overlooking the beach and an amazing menu that would fill all your expectations. It’s located on Marine Park road which was easily accessible for me and my cousins.
The night kicked off with a series of entertainment from belly dancers and hip hop dancers and they gave us some killer moves which got the crowd excited and ready for the night. We later on had our dinner and you should have seen the grin on my face when it was time to serve because I was starving. And as usual the food was incredible with a ton of choices to choose from the buffet. They had amazing options for starters and if you know me then you know I love rice. I had this amazing spiced rice with some grilled chicken and a bit of fish. yumm!! By the time we were done with dinner I was already happy with how 2018 is winding up.
Then there was round 2 of entertainment from the acrobats who really cheered the crowd with their amazing performance. Getting us to gear up for the New Year’s Eve countdown. The reactions from the audience was priceless as the acrobats continued to amaze us with their awesome stunts including playing with fire. By the time they were finishing their performance I decided to have my dessert by the beach enjoying the sea breeze because it was getting ‘too hot’ inside pun intended haha.
The vibe was so chilled and the DJ was playing some good music so we danced the night away preparing for my favourite part of the night: The countdown! It’s a tradition at the party to ‘burn the previous year’ as a way of saying good bye so there was a craft of 2018 made and it was lit immediately 2019 officially arrived.
In general it was a great night and I had the best time surrounded with awesome people. Thank you to Stephanie Ocean Resort for making me part of this wonderful experience. What a way to welcome 2019 and I hope this year brings love, joy, good health and lots of blessings. It’s the best time to start another chapter and you should all feel encouraged to go for your dreams. I want to take this time to wish you all a prosperous 2019!
May you always find peace and love.
