I’ve always loved fireworks, I find it really magical and fascinating. Last Saturday, I had chance to experience a night filled with lights and music through the 7th Philippine International Pyromusical Competition!
The first time I attended the annual Pyromusical was last 2013 and I wasn’t able to go back until last week, during the opening of the 7th Philippine International Pyromusical Competition. We actually just planned to stroll around the mall and browse through musican friend because we’re trying not to spend too much, even if it’s for Valentine’s. But we got crazy and randomly bought tickets since Gerald was curious about it too.
We didn’t bring our camera that time because we didn’t knew we’ll be going to the event. But it was okay since we got to enjoy the event and just stare up to the amazing fireworks display. I did took a few snaps though, if you were able to watch that. :)
We decided to attend the 2nd part of the event because we got crazy again. We kept on telling ourselves not to spend but here we are telling each other “It’s for experience, we won’t regret it.” Hahaha
We were still in the Gold Center area, the same spot where we were on the first week. We were there as early as 5:00pm and enjoyed taking snaps again haha It wasn’t the best location to take photos, but given the amount of people there, I think we still got one of the good spots.
There were three performers this week – The Crib (also present on the first week), Hale, and Morissette of The Voice. It was crazy how people flocked the stage taking videos and photos of them while they’re performing. How could they watch through their devices when the artists are right in front of them?
Anyway, the performances were great, we even sang along and Gerald was annoyed with my ugly voice hahaha Okay, too much blabbing, now let’s go back to the main point of this blogpost… the pyromusical display!
The competitors for this week were Italy and United Kingdom. I only took a few shots, because 1.) I am not good in taking fireworks shots and 2.) I wanted to enjoy watching than get frustrated taking photos haha.
So here are a few of the shots I’m willing to share. Haha
It was just so sad that after the event, people just left their trash around, not even caring about it, even if there are already garbage plastics around. :( I hope people will be more responsible.
Overall, it was a great night! I have to describe it as “light and music”, literally, because the fireworks are amazing, as well as the performers that night. Gerald even said it gets better each week and he badly wants to attend next week, but we can’t because of his work schedule. Boo! We’ll see if we can attend the remaining weeks of the event.
It’s your turn!
