World Pyrolymics 2008 and Something for Moms

I spent more than 12 hours at the Mall of Asia last Saturday. My friends from SM advised that we should get a reservation in one of the restos if we were going to watch the Pyrolympics. Woke up early on Saturday and headed to MOA before lunch. After checking out the restos at the second floor we decided to reserve at UCC Cafe (the barge is right in front of it).

Since we had a few hours to waste Sweetie, Miguel, Andrew, Migs and the Misis, and I decided to do our own MOA food tour. We hopped from one resto to another and this is probably why my face now resembles a plate. Huhuhu. No more food tours for me muna!

I was quite excited about the event since I've never been to one. I heard about the monstrous traffic jams it caused last year, so I thought it must be really good. I was also looking forward to using my new camera (and put it on fireworks mode! LOL).

Here's a short video about the Pyrolympics, clips taken by me and Miguel... watch out for the heart-shaped fireworks!

And here's a couple of medyo matinong photos I took:

My Tsamba Photo. Fireworks with lightning.

Flower arrangement. Well that's how it looks to me.

Sea urchin.

Happy love fireworks.

Onslaught of colours.

At some point I stopped taking photos since I just wanted to enjoy watching. Besides the boys were busy doing that already. Most of them missed seeing the heart-shaped fireworks because they were busy looking at their camera's LCD. Haha. Good thing Miguel managed to capture it on video.
