12 Mar 2011: The 2nd Philippine International Pyromusical Competition (Australia & the Philippines)

Last Saturday, 12 Mar 2011, my wish came true: I joined luminaries in the local blogging community (Trip@doraPinay Solo BackpackerJourneying James, Lakwatsera de Primera and Chyng Reyes, among others) in witnessing the magic on the final week of the 2nd Philippine International Pyromusical Competition at the SM Mall of Asia.

This time, we immersed ourselves in the crowd because the balcony where we shot from last 26 Feb 2011 was fully occupied by VIPs.

Australia's Pyromusical Presentation

Australia was the last competitor to present its entry.

The winners of the competition were announced after Australia’s presentation.  The 2nd Philippine International Pyromusical Competition champion was China with the United Kingdom and Japan as first and second runners-up respectively.

The presentation by our very own Platinum Fireworks, Inc. was an exhibition entry (i.e. not included in the judging).  The host country’s presentation utilized all areas of the venue to showcase maximum firepower and it really lit up the sky.

It was a truly magical evening and I look forward to next year’s competition.

Again, I extend my heartfelt thanks to everyone who made this extraordinary experience possible the second time around: the management and staff of SM Mall of AsiaMelo Villareal and Engrs. Ross & Ann.

      Chyng: bilhin mo na lang – 10k (50% off US price as quoted here)

      ma-a-adik k nmn sa ultra-wide angle e. saka madalas ka bumiyahe, so madalas mo magagamit.

      kasi kung rent, PhP300..600 ang daily rate. kahit i-compute sa PhP300/day, mas sulit pa rin na bilhin na lang. Ü

      siyempre malaking karangalan ang makilala ka sa wakas. matagal ko nang binabasa ang blog mo e.

      dive tayo kpg certified ka na. marunong ka na mag-clear ng mask e, so ok na yun. mask clearing na ang pinakamahirap na skill sa open-water course.
