PyroMusical 2012 Battle: China vs. Netherlands


The PyroMusical Battle last night was like David vs. Goliath with 

China - Jinsheng Fireworks as the 2011 Defending Champion of the 2nd Philippine International PyroMusical Competition and Champion of the 13th Macau International Fireworks, versus

The Netherlands - Royal Fireworks with no pyro competition distinction.

However, I love Netherland'ss performance more than China's and I hope they will win the 3rd Philippine International PyroMusical Competition 2012 :)

First World-Class Pyro Musical Theater in the Philippines!

World Pyro Musical Theater!-91

I miss the World Pyro Olympics. When I heard that the WPO organizers were commissioned to do the first ever World Pyro Musical Theater in the Philippines for a private Christmas Party, I vowed to myself not to miss the event.

It was spectacular!

If you are a pyro fanatic, the combination of the stage performers, fire dancers, stage lights, lasers, dramatic soundtrack, and awesome fireworks is something you should see in your lifetime. :)

Here is my tribute to the first ever Pyro Musical Theater performance in Manila:

Top 5 Things You Must Know Before Watching World Pyro Olympics 2009


In this video, Rob Crisostomo, VP Marketing of La Mancha, and Stephen Ku, WPO Event Organizer for 2009 (he has a cult following in the cool events circle), answered the following questions:

  • What's the story behind why World Pyro Olympics transferred from MOA to Bonifacio Global City?
  • What's the difference between PyroMusical and the Traditional Fireworks?
  • What can one expect from a Stephen Ku-organized World Pyro Olympics 2009 event?
  • Will there be heavy traffic around the Bonifacio Global City area?

A Raining World Pyro Night @ Hooters

Hooters World Pyro Night-5 Hooters World Pyro Night-10
I was amazed that the Canada's World Pyro performance continued despite the heavy rains. The Genki umbrella was cool and we were able to use it as props for our shoot. My brother, Rommel was able to take a shot of the lightning above. He was experimenting on taking the fireworks with lightning.

Some additional tips for the World Pyro:
1. The WPO will continue rain or shine. It seems to be raining every Saturday night these days.
2. It is also very interesting to take World Pyro shots with lightning in the background.
3. For Genki umbrellas would be perfect for the World Pryo either to use it to watch the show or use it as props.

4. All the restaurants in the San Miguel by the Bay offer a very good view of the Pyro.
5. If you want to get a good parking spot in San Miguel by the Bay, better to go by 5pm to get a slot. By 6pm, it becomes very difficult to get a parking spot.

Hooters World Pyro Night-17
The rain stopped already before the 9pm performance. I was bored with the monochromatic performance of France.

Hooters World Pyro Night-15
We were not able to execute this properly but the idea was to have a Hooter Girl with a Genki umbrella in the foreground and World Pyro in the background.

Hooters World Pyro Night-1
We tried the super hot 911 wings while waiting for the fireworks. The wings still failed our expectation because it was not too hot at all and something is missing in the taste of its wings.

Hooters World Pyro Night-18
I was able to talk to Madel and Rhya about how they felt about the Hooter's comments in this blog post: Hooters Philippines. I learned that most of them came from Fridays The Fort and some were just hired because there were limited people applying to be a Hooters girl. In 100 days, they will be evaluated and so expect to hopefully see new girls after that period.
