Pyromusical competition at MOA

Portugal's fireworks display

Britain's fireworks piece
It has been 6 years since I’ve watched a big fireworks event at the Mall of Asia, the first one was in 2005 when it was still called the Pyro Olympics. Now, its known as the Philippine International Pyro Musical Competition.

Two Saturdays ago, upon the invitation of the event organizers, three of us travel bloggers Chyng and James plus some other bloggers were there to witness the competition between Portugal and the United Kingdom, last year’s winner.

After a bad start photographing, I was at a not so good location and was using my wide angle lens, I changed focal lengths and eventually focused on the ball of fireworks, closer. But anyway, watching the fireworks is always great: the colors, the shapes, and what I do like the most is that the display were in such a way that it jived with the accompanying music.

Portugual was the first to show. Impressive and beautiful, highly colorful with those multicolored fireworks but it was the one by the United Kingdom, the awaited contender, that bowled me over. There’s was rather complex and gradually building in intensity and oomph to the end.

To better appreciate the fireworks competition, its best to be there at the MOA grounds but you need to get tickets for this one. Check their website for more information and price. There are two more competition dates left.

  1. Thanks for posting back Candie, i know i go on about this alot and i really dont want to frustrate anybody by mentioning it again. Im also a little confused when Paul says total abandonment to what the mind thinks’. Like when i start to feel lost and that Pauls advice doent make sense should I just accept that aswell and eventually it will make sense? I feel like I am doing that because i have the most bizarre scary thoughts and dont do anything about them at all. More than anything, i dont really fear my symptoms like i did, i just really dislike them! I was hoping to get some emotions start to come back, bit of a clearer mind, and interest in things hopefully that will happen gradually soon. I have decided not to go on a stag do at the end of May because it would involve alot of drinking everyday and maybe not the best choice right now . Hopefully il get away for a more relaxing break in the summer
