3rd Philippine International Pyromusical Festival - March 17, 2012

People flocked the SM Mall of Asia last March 17, 2012 to witness the last event showcasing Italy and Philippines. I biked all the way from Laguna just to visit the much hyped event. The roads leading to SM MOA is full of cars, making Macapagal Avenue, Roxas Blvd and EDSA Extension a virtual parking lot. At the height of the presentation, people are blocking roads leading to the seaside. I can only do watch it from a distance of about half a mile away.
Spectacular display of fireworks

The sky is awashed with fireworks as Italy unleashed its salvo
If only the camera can capture what the eye can see
The sound of firecrackers are two to three seconds delayed indicating that I am at least half a mile away from the action 
Manong seems oblivious to the snarled traffic around him.
People have thought of ingenious ways to watch the Pyro competition. This new parking complex in SM MOA offers a great vantage point to see the spectacular fireworks.

It's not yet Christmas, it's the 3rd Philippine International Pyromusical Competition. Traffic everywhere
