MIFC 2008 Finale – Team Global
The month long Malaysia International Fireworks Competition 2008 has finally ended. The winner of the competition went to Spain while Malaysia was the 1st runner up, not bad huh. It was a pity I didn’t get to witness team Spain’s performance last week, as it was highly praised. But getting to witness three out of five possible performances is still quite good for me.
I thought it was going to be Australia’s turn in the [tag]MIFC[/tag] finale last night at [tag]Putrajaya[/tag], but that didn’t happen. Instead, all the teams were combined into Team Global – which Malaysia led the [tag]firework[/tag]s performance. It was an explosive and thrilling display that entertained the largest crowd turnout in the competition!
Luckily there were little clouds and the sky was clear on the finale night. There was almost no wind though, so there are plenty of smoke in the photos. Such a pity.
Spain’s fireworks in the finale was the most creative and outstanding, so nice that it clearly stood out from the rest. They also managed to program the fireworks to really match with the accompanying song’s rhythm!
Well I had fun and learnt quite a number of tricks taking fireworks’ photos. The only thing I didn’t like was the waiting time at PICC. But what to do since we need to be early to book a nice spot.. Oh yeah I am already looking forward to MIFC 2009, lol. MIFC must continue as a free yearly event in [tag]Malaysia[/tag], and something you should see at least once in your lifetime.

Yesterday was team China’s turn to display their firework performance in the [tag]Malaysia International Fireworks Competition[/tag] [tag]MIFC[/tag] 2008 @ PICC. Since it was performed by [tag]China[/tag], I guess many people had high expectations and the crowd was much bigger compared to Malaysia’s. Moreover, it was held on a weekend.
