2nd World Pyro Olympics 2007

// This is the annual fireworks competition ever in history and yesterday is like a warzone!, we got stranded last night on our way home to Cavite after watching the Eragon movie premiere, and we experience a 2 hour traffic from Ortigas to Baclaran. And a swarm of people welcomed us when we arrived in Baclaran, traffic and no Bus rides coz all of it are overflowing with commuters, we were left standing in the area of Coastal road waiting for a ride, but we are so damn tired of waiting and both of us were sick that day, and today too.

so we decided to spend the night in a hotel nearby, just to avoid the heavy traffic and transportation problems..

and whoa...this year's pyro olympics really convince people to watch.. and i think the audience was doubled compare from last year.

today, we decided not to watch the pyro olympics, coz the incident last night is traumatizing.
but er..Lace here wants to watch again..and i told her we might watch it on the last day of the competition. //

here's a video of yesterday's fireworks from clickthecity.com




Greeting the New Year will be even more exciting this year for Filipinos as they can all join in the first great event of 2007 at the 2nd World Pyro Olympics.

In 2005, millions flocked to Pasay City to experience the debut of this world-class event. This year, people will once again witness the captivating magic of fireworks as the best pyrotechnic companies from Denmark, Poland, Canada, Spain, Germany, China, USA, United Kingdom and defending champion Australia showcase their firework displays. Two countries will be featured every night to each do a 20-minute classical aerial pyrotechnic display. On the last night, the Philippines as the host country will feature its own magical fireworks display to close the show.

La Mancha Pyro Productions, Inc., the same group that brought Filipinos the 1st World Pyro Olympics and the 1998 Centennial Fireworks Celebration, will be representing the Philippines once again in this prestigious competition. La Mancha promises to give Filipinos a grander WPO and more world-class events in the future. As La Mancha chairman, Mr. Ricardo Crisostomo stated, "We believe that the event is good for the country. La Mancha is looking forward to creating more events of international caliber."

The World Pyro Olympics is not only a unique international competition, but also an opportunity for Filipinos to celebrate the holiday season with their families and friends. Apart from having the best view of the fireworks displays, the event area at the Esplanade will have live bands, food concessionaires and other entertainment for everyone to enjoy and be merry. Shoppers at the SM Mall of Asia can easily join the audience, as ticket booths will be available at the cross bridge. Traffic should not be a problem this year with the vast parking space available and traffic management have been making the necessary preparations to insure convenience and security.

Esplanade (Pasay City)

raves and review
I don't have any idea at the first place that this story was written by a 14-year old who have successfully made it to a series of novels and now was given a great treatment for new audiences,when they made it on the big screen, that includes me. the movie will be a trilogy and this movie is the first one. I've seen lots of movies with dragons and this one really ticks and gave a new version on what dragons really are.... in this movie..they are not just reptilian monster,,, they are magical.

The story of the movie is about the dragon riders, and its reborn to the new age were they needed a hero to fight the deadly evil ruler, who is a dragon rider too, dragon fights are the best. It reminds of the animated series Dino-riders, but with a different twist and magical proportions.

The movie entertains us, which the funny part is that LOTR, Star Wars and HP still sticks in my mind.

New Year Santa


This photo is taken yesterday at the Coke booth, and we call it the New Year Santa, coz he's still here and giving that Santa smile even that Christmas is finished. According to Santa, everyday can be Christmas so Im expecting him to see again next month hahahaha, watch out for the new photos.

We won this photo op with Santa when we tried to join that Coca-Cola raffle contest, trying to have our luck to pick up an Ipod or a PSP. but again we got this Coke bag ( we have 3 already) and a photo op hehhehehe.
