Putrajaya International Fireworks Competition 2013- Page 1 of 2

It is a lengthy competition, from August to September 2013, at Putrajaya Maritime Centre. So, if you wish to grab the opportunity to see the fireworks, there are three more chances to go- 14, 15 September, and the last performance will be on 2 October 2013. The performance will start at around 10 pm, but we have to be early to get to the strategic location- Seri Saujana Bridge, Persiaran Tasik, Seri Gemilang Bridge, or along Tunku Abdul Rahman Road that facing Pullman Putrajaya. 

Putrajaya Convention Centre (PICC) is offering cocktail dinner during the competition days with RM150++ per person. Bringing sandwiches and Coke is another much cheaper and better option. By the way, watching the fireworks competition is free of charge. What you need to do is to find a transport to Putrajaya. We would like to share some photos taken last night at Persiaran Tasik.

Quiet night. 9:50 pm, everyone was holding the breath and waiting for the first spark of the fireworks. The location was strategy, with the maritime centre located at the middle of this VIP seat.

 First spark ignited.

 More.

 5 minutes into the performance. Smoke could be clearly seen.

Ending of first part of the performance by French team. 

After a short rest, second part of the performance started with exploding light across the sky. The smoke from the previous bursts started to block the view.

French team leader shouted, "Send more onto the sky!!"

Then the anti-climax kicked in at the finale. When the team sent everything they had for one last final blow, the smoke took away everything but the thundering explosion. Well, zero mark for the finale.

Row of photographers with all sort of gadgets.

None stop firing the shutters while French team firing their sulfur-filled fireworks.

Nope, it didn't look like 10 pm at night. The lakeside was crowded with people with sitting mats and picnic baskets.

Three more days of performance to go, and tonight, China team will take over the stage. If you still remember what Beijing had done to the opening of Olympic 2008, then you might wish to take out a map to look for the route to Putrajaya now.

We watched the shows presented by China team and US team as well, and discovered a better place to watch the fireworks. Follow us now.
