Fireworks Display at the Mall of Asia

      10 Comments on Fireworks Display at the Mall of Asia

fireworksAfter having an early dinner, Butch dragged all of us to the SM Mall of Asia. Knowing there are [tag]fireworks display[/tag] at 7:00 PM every fridays and saturdays, the idea of sipping coffee and watching the outdoors fireworks display sounded like a swell idea. Just as we sat down on our chairs in the UCC Vienna Cafe, the crowd of mall shoppers started to swell. Fumbling with my camera’s navigation buttons, I failed to see the video option. Fireworks’ images don’t say much of the dazzling display . It’s the video that captures the splash of colors and the sounds of the crowd’s gasp of oooooh and ahhhs. Too bad I didn’t get to take a video of the 5 minute fireworks’ display. It’s my first time to see a huge fireworks display amidst a wide area of black space of Manila Bay. It’s really pretty.

Just as we went back to the coffee shop, Steven Tan, the general manager of SM Mall of Asia called out my husband’s name. What a delight to see Steven! He invited us to their New Year Eve’s [tag]fireworks[/tag] display at 12 midnight. According to Steven, the pyrotechnics cost 1.8 million pesos. What a hefty sum to blow off for just a few minutes. Perhaps the fireworks play a purpose to drive away the evil spirits and bring in good luck and harmony for the new year. I don’t know if we are going to watch the fireworks display. It’s always been our New Year’s Eve tradition to create loud noises ,toot the horns, light up a few sparklers and fireworks and then eat our noche buena. Safety is an important consideration . I get paranoid of stray bullets and careless people who just throw off fireworks to passing cars. We’ll see if a change of scenery might be worth it.

These are a few Photos of the Fireworks display that I took tonight.

    Wow, cool fireworks! Much better for people to watch those than do the dangerous paputoks. We’re about to buy an apartment near the Mall of Asia! I’m so excited… maybe when we go home, we could watch the fireworks from our place.

    Happy New Year Noemi. Here’s wishing you and your family peace, joy, love, and hope in 2007!

  • @toe- wow good location if ever you buy that apartment.

    Hi Noemi,
    Sorry, this is off topic, hope you don’t mind me posting it here.
    How stumbled on your site? About 5 years ago or so, my daughter who is now 19 years old and is a sophomore at Stanford U, often visited L’s site. My daughter even joined the singing competition held by your daughter online. She placed second! For her prize, L sent her a box containing a bear. She was thrilled to received it. I believe she still hangs on to that bear to this day. (By the way, we live in AZ, USA.)
    We have things in common.I have two girls, too, ages 19 and 17 (turning 18 soon)and they both love singing just like your girls. Aside from singing, my eldest daughter also writes songs just like L. She has written 30 songs, so far, and has recorded some of it.
    I just wanted you to know that I enjoy reading your blog. You are an eloquent writer. May your business continues to thrive in the years to come.

  • @belle- realy . wow that was a long time ago. what was the screen name of your daughter? I will tell L about it. she’d be thrilled to know she hangs on to the bear. We do have a lot in common with the 2 girls. Hope you visit more.

    Hi Noemi,
    it was quite a while ago so I don’t quite remember her screen name. It could be kyokomii. She slowly drifted away from computer and focused more on academics, school’s extra curricular activities, and singing.

    By the way, you inspired me in getting started with my own blog: I have a lot to learn.

    Happy New year to you and your family! Good luck on L’s future career. Looking forward to listening both of your girls sing.
