    Tanjung Rhu is a popular place but you could also try different places to get different angles, like Old Airport Road flats or Merdeka Bridge.

    Read somewhere that you would need to use a smaller then usual aperture setting and longer shuttle speed. Reason being you're shooting "fire" works and fire are hot and gives out light....

    Seems like in your case your aperture setting is too small. And that your shuttle speed isn't long enought for the full spreading effect...

    Hope this information helps....
