    from news report - this year organiser plan fewer firework days (oni on selected days), but each days will have longer/extensive firework display.

    besides fireworks, other popular photo subjects =
    - god of fortune "sprinkle of gold"
    - stage performance
    - lights and ground deco

    n finally, most impt:
    - mad rush of aunties n uncles long long Q, buying $10mil TOTO

    happy CNY to CSers

    I thought it's at the location of the IR just like last year. But if firing from the park then there would be an area cordoned to the public and somemore a lot of trees in that area.

    Hi All,

    Hope this is not too late. The firing location is situated at the IR site.

    http://www.pub.gov.sg/Marina/reservoirnotice.htm (scroll to the bottom, under the Updates on Projects / Events in Marina Reservoir)

    The MS WORD document shows the firing point and as well as the timin for the different dates.
