“There’s no spark!”
That was a year ago. Who would have thought that I would eat my words? And yes, sparks can turn into fireworks. And everything becomes magical.
Watching the 3rd Philippine International Pyromusical Competition was not just a visual treat but also a melody to the ears. Music made the difference.
China and Netherlands both showed their pyrotechnic expertise to a thousand spectators who flocked to the SM Mall of Asia on March 3. China was last year’s champion. But can it defend its title?
Here are the photos that I took last Saturday.
Which of the two is better? Which country will win the championship this year?
You can still catch the Pyromusical Competition on March 10 and March 17.
1. If you’re going to watch the fireworks, be early (around 4pm) at the venue to secure your place. It’s a first come first served basis. You may run out of seats too even if you’re at the VIP area.
2. Bring water and sky flakes or come to the area with a full stomach. Nonetheless, there are kiosks where you can buy food.
3. Be prepared for a huge number of crowd.
4. Transportation may be difficult especially after the show. If you’re commuting, prepare to walk from the SM Mall of Asia up to Hobbies of Asia where you can hail a ride to Buendia or wherever you’re going. If you have a vehicle, expect heavy traffic.
