Pyromusical 2012 | Finland and Portugal

This year's much awaited Pyromusical Competition already started 3 weeks ago, but it's only last weekend that I've got the time to watch the spectacular fireworks display at SM Mall of Asia. I know Finland and Portugal performances never got raves as of last year- pero deadma na! Last weekend lang talaga ako free manood.

For the record, I purchased Gold Tickets worth P150, thanks to Ensogo the original price is slashed into half. And since I wanted to have a good spot in the breakwater area, Penggay and I where already queuing as early as 4pm.

walang S kasi isa lang siya ^_^


Anyway, for those who wants a comfortable & decent spot + food, you may avail the restaurants with best views of the pyromusical competition.

but for photo-enthusiasts, the best spot to shoot is still the breakwater area
an unobstructed part


So much for the tips, here are my not-so-good fireworks shots. I wish I have an UWA lens to capture a wider range.













Both Finland's and Portugal's performances were average. I've seen most of those techniques last year. Finland's music didn't really connect to the Pinoy audience, but the performance is good enough. I was just expecting a grand finale. Like last year, Portugal fired a lot. Hindi lang sync sa music. ^_^ Also, Portugal's music transition is so amateur! Sayang kasi ang lively pa naman and the crowd was enjoying the retro songs like Great Balls of Fire and Let's Twist Again.

Nevertheless, fireworks are one of my simplest pleasures. Needless to say, Im happy I came to witness it and be part of the thousands of spectators in MoA.

For the record, you can watch the pyromusical for free. No one will prohibit you to look up in the sky. But dear readers, this is a pyromusical competition. You need to hear the music to appreciate the performance.
