Top 5 Spots to Usher in the New Year with Fireworks!

The New Year is just around the corner and if you're not at home having a quiet time with the old folks, head on down to these spots to soak up the atmosphere of sweaty fun and eye (and ear)-popping fireworks.
Ampang Look Out Point
This is the perfect spot for a panoramic view of the Kuala Lumpur City skyline. Both romantic and breathtaking, the road that leads up to this little treasure is dark and winding, so be sure to leave early in the evening so you'd secure a parking spot. There are restaurants up here such as Gasoline, Haven, and the Bread and Olives Cafe where you can dine at with the best company, before heading over to the hill-top tower to enjoy the fireworks over the Petronas Twin Towers. Located in Ampang, the Look Out Point is a mere 20 minutes from the Kuala Lumpur City Centre for a beautiful escape.Address : Jalan Hulu Langat (B62), Ampang, Selangor.
Tropicana City Mall
The brand, spanking new mall in the heart of Petaling Jaya, which serves many of its happy SS2, Damansara Utama and Damansara Jaya residents with its array of shops and cinema, will be celebrating New Year 2010 with fireworks, live band performances, fire breathers, a samba percussion group and magicians. The activities will be taking place at the entrance of the Mall and starts at 8pm, so expect a traffic jam along the NKVE which runs in front of it, as passers-by will probably stop to watch the fireworks.Address : Tropicana City Mall, No. 3, Jalan SS20/27, 47400 Petaling Jaya, Selangor.

Sunway Pyramid Shopping Mall
Subang peeps who are too lazy to drive to KL city to party will settle for the local mall's firework display which is pretty decent. Families can also enjoy the explosive colours from their backyard or garden, especially those who love having barbecue parties for the festivities. Precocious young adults can also head to Euphoria by Ministry of Sound to boogie the night down, while Bar Celona and the new Opera is within walking distance.Address : Sunway Pyramid, 15, Jalan PJS 11/24, Bandar Sunway, 46150 Petaling Jaya, Selangor.

City Walk @ i-City, Shah Alam
If hearing motivational speeches which get you prepped for the year ahead is your kinda thing, then welcome the New Year with leaders Khalid Ibrahim and Teresa Kok. The event begins at 5pm with Orang Asli and multicultural drum performances, and later in the night, Selangor Menteri Besar will be delivering a speech to usher in the new year. The night comes to a close when the fireworks go off at the stroke of midnight and everyone has a warm fuzzy feeling inside.Address : City Walk @ i-City, Seksyen 7, Shah Alam.

The Curve
The annual New Year's Countdown is not complete with a concert held at the Curve, organised by Fly fm. Last year it was a Masquerade Party, and this year we will see hottie Faizal Tahir and local powerhouse Jaclyn Victor heat up the stage at 8pm. Roads will be closed to house this event hosted by Joey G and model Kylie Chapman, so be sure to get there early to avoid having to park by the roadside and risk your car getting scratched.Address : 6, Jalan PJU 7/3, Mutiara Damansara, 47810 Petaling Jaya.
So you know what to do next! Plan your celebrations ahead of time and you will escape the frenzy that are KL-ites!
