The magic of fireworks never failed to attract visitors and spectators in the 3rd week of the 2011 Philippine International Pyromusical Competition. Last February 26, one of the biggest countries in the world competed against another giant, the country that actually created fireworks in the first place. Yes! It was France versus China and while everyone had a favorite, only one can be the winner.
Amazing Fireworks Display by Team China
The pyromusical competition took place at the SM Mall of Asia in Pasay City. Getting there, the traffic wasn’t too bad if you go to there as early as 5pm according to some bloggers who went there last weekend.

With VIP seats, some bloggers had an amazing angle to see what was going on. The tripods were set by the seating with care to see France and China light up the air.

China was up first and the combination of music and fireworks was truly astounding. You would of course expect that from the country that gave us the opening ceremonies for the 2010 Olympics. Remember those?

This was less grand than that but still was about 20 minutes of amazement. There was non-stop action with burst after burst and the music pushing the intensity even further. The crowd went insane. Seriously, it was unreal.
A half hour later France came and they had a colorful show with much less gusto and the music was a bit of a let down. I know, it’s tough to follow the big kid on the block. China definitely took the day though there was a great display from France but the crowd wasn’t as into it either.
Still, I’m looking forward to the next one with much more anticipation, I think China might take it all. Of course, they’ll have to beat us to do it!
