The 5th Philippine International PyroMusical Competition

I love festivities and New Year's eve is one of my most favorite.  Me and my travel-blogging friends were given the opportunity by our sponsors to witness New Year's Eve again on the last night of the The 5th Philippine International PyroMusical Competition held at the SM Mall of Asia grounds where USA was the last performer and the Philippines showcased its special exhibition.





The venue was already filled with people from all walks of life as early as late afternoon.  They patiently waited for the show to start as the fireworks will not light up the sky until around 7:30 PM that night.  For those who love sunsets, getting there early is a sure bonus as you can catch front row seats facing the lovely Manila Bay.

Test fireworks were shown which were more than enough to solicit shouts from the eager crowd. As the lights dimmed, the DJ announced the start of the event. USA performed as the last contestant of the competition.

After which, the Philippines grandly took the stage.

A buffet-style dinner was served free. As tokens for us, we were given media passes, one free gold ticket and first-come first-served front-row seats.  Please forgive me for the humble fruits of my labor as this was my first time to cover a fireworks competition.



This even was made possible by all its sponsors

The announcement of winners capped the night wherein Canada was in first place, China in second place and United Kingdom in third place.

See you again in the next year's event!
