World Pyro Olympics: Denmark and Canada

World Pyro Olympics: Denmark and Canada

World Pyro Olypics Denmark & Canada - 3

The World Pyro Olympics last night was different:

The traffic was easy.
Both fireworks started exactly on time 8pm and 9.30pm respectively.
There were only a few people who watched the show.
Both Denmark and Canada were just standard big fireworks which was disappointing, relatively.
I can't believe that I left my spare battery so I was not able to take decent firework shots.
Our view was fantastic, directly in front of the barge since we are in the special viewing area.

I'm sure today's world pyro will be more exciting because everyone is expecting that China's show will be a prelude to Beijing Olympics Fireworks. Also, we will support our very own as the finale of the entire World Pyro Olympics.

There is one entrance for both prime and special viewing area. P250 -- viewing only, without food. P500 -- special viewing area with Merienda food from Via Mare and P1,250 -- at the prime viewing area.

This is the scene from the special viewing area. Frankly, there is no difference between this and the prime viewing area except for the food. Only problem with this setup is when it rains... hopefully not...

Macaroni pasta, chicken and pork barbeque, crinkles are served in the special viewing area. Not bad. You can only get once before the fireworks and if there is enough food left, they would allow seconds and thirds, like what happened last night.

It was easy to get a a seawall view because there are only a few photographers in this area.
