This annual event opened at the SM Mall of Asia last February 11, Saturday, with fireworks display from competing countries South Korea and Malta. Now, every Saturday this month until March 17, 2012, two competing countries will showcase their fireworks display expertise by the scenic Manila Bay.
Although I still had a blast watching the fireworks last Saturday, I was a bit disappointed and less awed by what I saw. United Kingdom's performance did not give justice to its 1st runner-up finish last year; Spain's fireworks exhibition did not mesmerize me either.
Let me digress a bit. Lakwatsero thinks he sucks at fireworks photography. Oh, well, I think so, too. LOL. He took a lot of pictures and his camera even ran out of memory to take some more but, unfortunately, none of his photos were good enough for this post. All photos on this post came from my camera. I am not saying I am great but, at least, I don't think I suck. Click here if you want to see the rest of the photos.
Lakwatsero and I will be back at the event next week to watch Finland and Portugal compete. We will still bring both our cameras and I think he will give fireworks photography another shot.
