    But i heard that this year will be the area between the bridge and the park so will be very constraint. They may even close the bridge for safety reasons.

    the fireworks might start early..how early no idea.but the openning should start @ 2000hrs.
    the fireworks should be low.not as high as what we usually see on the EOY countdown..n they might close the road.

    lastly,most impt,tonight only 1 fireworks!!!
    tmr,after ur reunion dinner,then go get a camping spot.

    They should have pontoons right infront of the bridge between the Merlion and Esplanade. The esplanade bridge will be cordoned off for safety reasons. I think this is as clear as what I know. So please avoid the bridge.

    I should be shooting from esplanade park or from the Padang.

    5/2/2008 - 2130 - 5mins
    6/2/2008 - Midnight - 8mins
    7/2/2008 - 2130 - 5mins
    8/2/2008 - 2130 - 5mins
    5 mins, 8 mins.. why our fireworks are so little ? Hongkong fireworks were at least 25mins.

    I've seen the so call "rehearsal" or trial twice. Yupp, they are indeed low low kind of fireworks. From my angle, they seems to be near the OUB Area, beside the river... Think City Hall or padang will get a good view. Watch out for the trees ya...

    Happy shootin and Happy Lunar New Year to all CSer!!!

    Just reached esplandnade. From what i can see, they will be launching from the esplandade bridge as the pedestrian walkway has been cordoned off and something has been set up there along the length of the bridge. Esplanade park will be impossible to shoot as it is crowded with all the tents for the carnival. Padang still ok.
