Thread: Sembawang's 10mins of Fireworks.

  1. #1

    Question Sembawang's 10mins of Fireworks?

    good day everyone.

    ive been living in sembawang for the past 7years.
    and every first saturday of July, i'd hear fireworks. i can see reflections of it from the opp block window. but ive never catch any for the past few years.

    every first day of July, you can see fireworks display in the direction of Malaysia and its also where the American Navy docks. Americans celebrate their Independence Day thus the fireworks display.

    this year, ive gotten my dslr, so i wanna go snap them!
    but one problem, i wanna ask

    any sembawang residents here know wheres the best place to catch the fireworks; which hdb flat? i know it happens around 7.50+. and on the 4th of July. right?

    thanks!

    I am not a Sembawang resident, so I have no idea which block is good for viewing.

    From the directory below, the block with a pretty good view is Blk 507A.
    Estimate distance from Terror Sports Club is about 1 km away.
    You staying around there, can do a survey and see how is it ?

    Pls note that due to the sensitivity of the place (american troops and all), be careful when observing the activities from any overlooking places e.g. HDB blocks, bridges etc. This is especially with regards to photo-taking. You might be questioned by the police on your activities and personal details taken down.

    I used to live at around Jalan Mata Ayer area (the stretch of sembawang rd where there's the drive-in mac's and the Nasi lamak further down) and somewhere after NDP, fireworks would be set like somewhere across the army camp. Maybe that's the fireworks you're talking about?

    Maybe its a different set of fireworks? But from the American website, guess the club would have fireworks as well. I'll most likely be there at the HDBs to take photos since i live around the area
