Fireworks Competition

Posted: August 22, 2007 in Family Time


The International Fireworks Competition, 1st time held in Malaysia, began on Saturday, 18 August. Ama, being the great firework-display fan, just had to go see it. 

Unfortunately, the best place to see it, at the Putrajaya International Convention Centre (PICC), at a RM38.50 per person, was already fully booked. The Family went to Putrajaya to see it anyway. 

Tonight, the Australian team was competing.  

The evening started with sporadic rain, but by the time the Family set out, at around 8:30pm, it was a beautiful clear night. 

At around 9:30pm, the Family secured a good viewing spot off the highway. Spectators had already gathered, and more were flocking in. 

There were so many cars that some inconsiderate people had triple parked. The Police tried to get people to park farther away so as not to obstruct the highway, but they were just too many cars. 

Finally, at around 10:00pm, the show started! Ama was awed by the spectacular non-stop 20 minute display… 

And the Twins were in terror! They clung on tightly to Aba, frightened by the noise. They also averted their eyes from the explosions of light. They just wouldn’t let go of Aba! 

May, who was quite fascinated by the firework, also began to get frightened half-way through when she thought that the explosions were getting closer! (actually, the fireworks just got bigger!) 

All 3 kids ended up sticking to Aba for ‘protection’! 

Ama took lots of photos, and had good laugh at the Kids fear. 

Then the show was over… and the massive jam to get out of the place began…
