2nd philippine international pyromusical competition

since we started working, we've been running around like a headless chicken. if before, just like everybody else, we used to dread mondays and look forward to fridays, these days it's the other way around! because friday is closing day!! kaloka!!! no more time, energy, or gana to blog. but we'll get our mojo back once we get used to this production schedule.

anyhoo here is something we witnessed last night that we just had to share! every saturday evening (from feb 12 to mar 12), two countries will be presenting their fabulous fireworks set to music at the SM mall of asia grounds fronting the bay. and last night we saw china vs france. we had been looking forward to china's set because, after all, they invented fireworks! here's a video we took of china's finale. gave us goose bumps!!! (excuse the waiter's head that kept passing in front of us. that's what you get when you sit in the VIP area!)



and here is france's finale:



you be the judge!

a few tips:
1. the entrance and ticket booth is in the area of the mall where gerry's grill and don henrico's are (those are the two stores we remember seeing, on the imax side).
2. the swarm of people is incredible so dress comfortably and keep your purses close to you.
3. if you get to watch outside by the bay, it can get breezy and chilly, so bring a light jacket or shawl.
4. and best tip we got: if you bring a car, don't park in the carpark! that's what a friend did last week, and it literally took him hours to get out of the carpark! people just shut their engines off and hung outside their cars. it was that bad. so we took his advice and parked in an open field around two blocks away. best decision because, even if we still hit bumper-to-bumper traffic, we were close to roxas boulevard already and just inched our way out.
