I remember watching it the first time with my college friends. It was a great show, but you have to deal with traffic, noisy and crazy crowd, and if you don’t have a car.. walking for a good spot.
We walked from MOA to Heritage Hotel after the show. And I did the same thing again the following show with the family naman. Hahaha. Good times. I love fireworks display. It’s so Christmas-y and NewYear-y. LOL
Wala dito sa Singapore. Baduy Christmas dito. Hahaha
@Grace – awts, balik na dito Philippines 🙂
I wish it was that easy… I heard there would be a fireworks display pala here on New Year’s Eve.. pero I’m still doubting if it will give me the cheery feeling that Pinas gives me. Iba pa din dyan.. that’s for sure! 😉
@ Grace, ano po bang eksena ng holidays diyan sa Singapore?
@ Sago, thanks a lot sa magaling mong website! I’m always learning something new… BTW, I’m getting email updates from your site, and wala pang chance na di ko tinitignan yung site mo as I receive your updates. More power!
@Grace – pag nakapunta ako sa isa sa mga World Pyro Olympics show, video ko tapos nood mo sa Youtube 🙂 parang and2 ka na rin 🙂 haha!
@Faith – hi! Nice to hear from you Faith! woot! 🙂
