Spanish and Korean Lights at Manila Sky

South Korea and Spain conquered Manila’s sky with their vivid bursts of lights in the opening night of Second International Pyromusical Competition at SM Mall of Asia in Pasay City, February 12.

The event  that was attended by thousands of spectators also featured performances from a Korean violinist, Spanish salsa dancers, and local bands and performers.

Although the show started a bit late, the fireworks display didn’t disappoint the thousands of patient crowd including myself, who were luckily positioned in the VIP area and served with Thai foods, thanks to Melo Villareal, Mr. Christian Miguel of Creatif Foire Pro Incorporated and SM Mall of Asia.

As expected, amazement enveloped everyone as South Korea and Spain fire their lights, but personally, the fifteen-minute Spanish display edged a little over the Korean lights.


I won’t be around  to witness Portugal and United Kingdom’s performances this coming Saturday, and China and France on the next, but I am sure they will all light up their hard fights.

You still have time to catch the greatest show on Earth at SM Mall of Asia on the following schedule:

  • February 19: Portugal (7PM) /United Kingdom (8PM)
  • February 26: China (7PM) / France (8PM)
  • March 5: Japan (7PM) / Canada (8PM)
  • March 12: Australia (7PM) / Philippines (8PM)
