At the Phils vs. Canada 4th Philippine International Pyromusical Competition

Last Saturday, March 23, 2013, my family availed of the buy 3 take 1 GOLD ticket for the last day of the 4th Philippine International Pyromusical Competition.  We arrived at the Mall of Asia grounds around 3:00pm and had to park at the 6th level parking area because the rest of the levels were already full.  We made a few stops on the way to the gate of the venue, stopping for popcorn, siopao and drinks.  Upon reaching the gate on the right side of the music hall at the IMAX wing, there was already a line for the VIP, GOLD and SILVER forming. We decided to fall in line and just wait.  It did not take long before the area became crowded with people lining up.

The gates opened at 5:00pm.  Making our way to the GOLD seaside area was a bit confusing for our part because there were barricades everywhere.  However, there were event security personnel everywhere to direct you where you want to go, so it wasn't so bad.  We made our way to the seaside area which had a good view of the barge where the fireworks were to be launched.  The best spots were already taken by families faster than us, but we managed to find a good enough spot to locate ourselves.  From then was a long wait.  To kill time, we ate most of our baon, and whiffed in the beauty of the sunset.

The show was suppose to start at 7pm, the crowd became a bit restless when there was no sign that the show was to start anytime soon.  I figured that since its the last day of the competition, the organizers adjusted the start of the show so they can encourage more of the SM shoppers to watch...heheh!  

Anyway, the show started around 8pm.  Here are my photos of the show:

music from "How to Train your Dragon", Cirque de Soleil and What a Wonderful World

Oasis and stars

Electrifying burst of blue and gold.

Subtle blue.  A peaceful looking fireworks display.


Electric Red


I call this "CELEBRATION."

Ito ang pinakafavorite photo ko..."THE OASIS."
The show ended around 9:30pm.
Traffic was terrible on the way home.


The winners of the competition are as follows:

1st place - UK

2nd place - China and Canada

3rd place - Finland


We look forward to watching the 5th Philippine International Pyromusical Competition in 2014!
