Fireworks Pics from Singapore’s 44th Birthday !


After my National Day Parade 2009 Preview on 1st August 2009, I was planning to return on the actual National Day Parade itself on the 9th August 2009 to take the fireworks itself and immersed myself with the crowds around the Marina Bay, Esplanade and One Fullerton.


It was very crowded when I arrived around 530pm at Raffles Place MRT Station and began walking towards One Fullerton, the crowds had swelled up and entries to certain areas such as the Esplanade Bridge and One Fullerton was sealed up to prevent overcrowding. I had to walk towards the open ground between One Fullerton and Clifford Pier Hotel and camped myself there, finding a location and setting up my tripod.


This location wasn’t too bad, although I couldn’t see much of the Pre-Parade actions, I got different views of the Chinook arriving, the Apaches in action and the National Flag Fly Past ! Thereafter, I made the final preparations for capturing the fireworks and waited patiently. Once the Fireworks started firing, everybody around was very excited to watch and enjoy the Birthday Fireworks ! Hope you folks enjoy the fireworks !! More can be viewed here at my Flickr !!


Happy 44th Birthday Singapore !!


Fireworks from NDP NE2 !!!

Singapore is counting down to her birthday celebrations on 9th August 2009, our National Day Parade. In order for the organisers to produce and deliver an unforgettable and wonderful experience for all Singaporeans and friends, there were many ongoing rehearsals to ensure that it will be a great birthday for all of us on 9th August 2009.


The rehearsal today is known as The National Education Show 2, many Primary 5 school children were seen walking towards the Marina Bay floating platform. As for myself, capturing the fireworks was my target and I decided to position myself at the other end of the Esplanade Bridge, nearer to One Fullerton for a different view and perspective of the fireworks rehearsal.


It wasn’t too crowded and around 820pm, the fireworks fired away and I was happily capturing them in action since I am a big lover of fireworks, playing fireworks (small size type) and photographing fireworks. Even though it wasn’t the full 100% for the actual National Day Parade, I was very happy watching the fireworks and capturing them in memories.


Looking forward to NDP 2009 ! Check out more fireworks photos here in my Flickr !
