About This Blog
Flight chronicles of the backpacker Tutubi, with travelogues, pictures/photos/videos, travel guides, independent and honest reviews, affordable, recommended resorts and hotels (including inns, guesthouses, pension houses, lodges, hostels, condotels, bed and breakfast and other cheap accommodations), commuting guides, routes (sometimes street maps and GPS coordinates/waypoints) and driving directions to answer "how to get there" questions, information and tips on tourism, budget travel and living in Philippines, Exotic Asia and beyond!

Backpacking, independent travel, and flashpacking are cheaper than the "cheapest package tours" and promotional offers around but you can also use travel information for family vacations, even romantic honeymoon destinations.

More than the usual tourist spots and "places to see," this blog advocates heritage conservation, environmental protection, and history awareness for Filipinos, foreigners, and ex-pats wishing to explore Paradise Philippines and Exotic Asia!

    SM Mall of Asia Fireworks: MOA PyroMusical Competition Schedule 2013

    Just to post the 2013 schedule of MOA PyroMusical Competition (fireworks display competition at SM Mall of Asia in Pasay City). Do also take note of Tutubi's tips
    on the event, venue, parking and how to take fireworks pictures at the bottom of the post.

    Photo of silhouette cameraman who obstructed Tutubi's camera view during the 2nd PyroMusical Competition (then called Pyro Olympics) at SM Mall of Asia. The best place to take pictures of the even is on the rocks before the seawall where you can use a tripod with remote control

    MOA PyroMusical Competition 2013 Schedule:

    February 16:
    Japan (Tamaya Kitahara) & Finland (Oy Pyroman Finland Ltd.)

    February 23:
    Taiwan (Yung Feng Fireworks) & Spain (Brunchu Pyro Experience)

    March 2:
    United Kingdom (Jubilee Fireworks Ltd.) & South Korea (Hwarang Fireworks Inc.)

    March 9:
    Italy (Ipon Fireworks S.R.L) & The Netherlands (Royal Fireworks)

    March 16:
    China (Liuyang New Year Fireworks Manufacturing Co., Ltd.) & Australia (Fireworkx Inc.)

    March 23 (Closing Exhibition):
    Canada (Fireworks Spectacular) & Philippines (Platinum Fireworks Inc.)

    1. get there early to reserve the best view in front of the crowd and also take pictures of the fireworks as if coming from the Manila Bay and not from the fireworks barges.
    2. Park nearest the street or outside of MOA since it takes an awful lot of time to get out after the event finishes (reason why Tutubi never went back there)
    3. How to take Fireworks pictures: Use a sturdy tripod and camera remote control and lots of patience. set camera to 5 or 10 seconds depending on your style, ISO 100 and aperture to around 5.6 but best to find the best settings beforehand on trial shots
    to get what you prefer to be seen or get.
    4. to avoid huge crowds, you can also book for a romantic dinner at a restaurant near SM MOA where you can view the fireworks display synchronized with music.
