The Philippines plays host to the 2nd World Pyro Olympics starting the 5th of this month. Rose & I were contented in watching the said event since last year at the comfort of their roofdeck (which is around 2 miles away from the Esplanade — back of the SM Mall of Asia).
But last night was different. After watching a film at the MOA, we decided to wait for the spectacular event. At first, we planned to just stay in one of the resto’s at the back of the MOA, but the queue is very long just to have a table for two. We then decided to purchase the Php100 tickets to gain entrance at the Esplanade, where the event is to happen. After a mile or two of walking, we were finally inside the venue.
Really a once-in-a-lifetime event. Last night, it was UK’s and Germany’s turn to show-off their fire and light prowess. Rose and I are planning to buy the Php500 tickets for Saturday’s grand finale.
