Come on show 'em what you're worth
Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh!"
As you shoot across the sky-y-y
Last Saturday, we watched the third installment of the 2nd Philippine International Pyromusical Competition featuring delegations from China and France at the SM Mall of Asia. The event debuted last February 12 and will be held every Saturday night until March 12.
We opted to buy Silver tickets so we can comfortably watch the fireworks display without trying to compete with the rest of the crowd for the view. Tickets are sold at the following prices:
Patron (with dinner) - Php1500
VIP – Php500
Gold - Php200
Silver - Php100
You can also dine in one of the restaurants in the seaside area but make sure you have prior reservations.
After waiting for a bit, the show started with a bang in the sky!
|You had me at hello|
Good in almost everything, China didn’t disappoint us by showcasing their spectacular fireworks display. After all, the Chinese invented the fireworks as my youngest sister repeatedly said. Their presentation was full of vibrance and life in addition to the loud Chinese music.
France came next. And I must say, their exhibition was dramatic and sophisticated. French are known to be romantics and their fireworks attested to that. Where as the Chinese’ presentation was more on the cheerful side, the French’s was elegant and intense. It started modest and ended magnifique!
|I heart you!|
As expected with events like these, the MOA complex was jam-packed. Heavy traffic greeted the crowds leaving and going to the mall. We didn’t find an empty resto in MOA so we decided to eat at Seaside at Macapagal Blvd. After buying seafoods in the wet market, we had our food cooked (paluto) in one of the restaurants.
At 12 mn, we were just plain happy to experience the brightest show on earth that lighted up Manila skies and of course have our seafood dinner =)
