It’s National Day today! In the day, we see flags; at night, we see fireworks!
Tonight concludes the 28th Macao International Fireworks Display Contest, with the theme of ‘Celebration in the Sky’. Who do you think would be the winner? I can’t wait to find out, because this year I actually watched all the displays with diligent attentiveness!
I was really expecting a grand finale type of thing, but tonight was sort of like an anticlimax. I mean, the shows themselves were naturally good, but they were the sparkly brisk type and I could hardly capture them on camera. Also, China, by Hunan Jingtai Fireworks co.,Inc (winner of 2014 by the way) used tons of red…red does not come out nicely in photos at all.
Open the TV and all you can see is Hong Kong’s gigantic firework display going on with full force in the Victoria Harbour. I have a feeling that instead of going out for Macau’s live fireworks, people were actually watching Hong Kong’s fireworks at home on their couches!
Anyway, I didn’t watch it, but I heard it’s a pretty big display. I am looking forward for Chinese New year/New Year’s Day when we get fireworks all across the entire bridge in Macau, instead of just around the Macau Tower.
It’s Romania, then China today! Keep an eye out for winners here: http://fireworks.macaotourism.gov.mo/
