world pyro olympics 2009....

LATEST SCOOP: WTO was postponed till Jan. 2010 due to concerns about the weather.

It has started. The world pyro olympics 2009. The 1st pyro musical competition in the Philippines and we were there tonight at it's new venue in the CITY of FORT Bonifacio Taguig. I say it started with a bang from Germany and crowd favorite CHINA........

the pyromusical on a rainy day....

I came all the way from Binangonan just to see it and the heavy traffic and a sudden downpur almost ruined the fun. T'was 7:05 pm when Teresa and I got there so I thought we would see the first firing while at the bus. Sure enough, the rain also moved the schedule to 8pm with Germany first followed by China at 8:30.

There were tents setup for those who want to enjoy some drinks and snacks. Served as a refuge from the rain as well.

good thing the rain didn't erase it......

The 1st to present was Germany. And Since I didn't bring any tripod, I decided to record a video instead.I sure did. But it broke my heart when I found out as soon as I got home that it's deleted in my camera. Sigh. Too bad coz I thought of recording all the presentations and just let my readers decide which is the best at the end.

in green......

All in all , it was good and well choreographed. Reminds me of blitzkrieg "lightning war". It was like bang bang bang--- wow!!!---jaw dropped.Then there was too much smoke, like in a war. hehe The music was too loud for me. I am a romantic type so I think I would prefer to see fireworks with a more subtle musical score.

China satisfied me on that part. The romantic music made me imagine beautiful landscapes while looking at the fireworks display. True to it's spirit, the sky was dominated by red colors which I thought was very striking. Teresa thought it was not better than Germany though. She said it was good at first but it bored her from the middle till end.

I was in the middle of the GENERAL ADMISSION area in the open field holding my camera on the right and my jacket on the left since the rain started pouring again. Glad I was able to bear the NGALAY factor plus the annoying rain......
