The 3rd Philippine International Pyromusical Competition

Last Saturday we were able to witness the last presentation of the 3rd Philippine International Pyromusical Competition held at the Seaside Blvd, SM Mall of Asia. It was held every Saturday from Feb. 11- March 17, 2012. We decided to watch on the last day where Italy and Philippines showcased their brilliant fireworks exhibition. I purchased 4 Gold tickets from Ensogo for half the price but upgraded to VIP coz they were offering tickets for buy one take one since it was already the last day of the event.
Eleven countries competed for the coveted top prize including South Korea, Malta, United Kingdom, Spain, Finland, Portugal, China, Netherlands, Australia, Canada, and Italy. Philippines was not included in the competion being the host of the event but also showcased a spectacular display of fireworks courtesy of Platinum Fireworks Inc. Philippines' exhibition was cut off due to some technical difficulties. We saw a small fire in the barge and it took them a while to continue for the finale. Despite some technical problems, I was still amazed at Philippines's firework exhibition! I specially loved it when they started launching firework shells into the water and all we can see were floating mini fountains of light that looked like they emerged from the water and suddenly the air was filled with Whitney Houston's beautiful song "I Will Always Love You". I loved Philippines's choice of music to accompany the fireworks display. We truly enjoyed the colorful explosions of light that painted the sky that night!
