    Bad idea, Maybank will block half of your view.
    Feels just like Duxton during NDP.
    Padang allows a better angle but I have no idea how the flow of people will be like this year.

    Sorry I know i out of topic. BTW, I know many people usually use Bulb mode for fireworks. May I know what are the aperture or iso you guys usually use and how long is your exposure?

    It's really easy. Set the f/ stop to f/10 or f/13, and ISO to 100...

    yea no choice.. is either pay... or camp... ur choice.. haha
    depending on which camera ur using its also advisable to set ur picture styles for canon...
    i use preset clear picture styles on my 50D and it gets some pretty awesome effects.... at least till the masses of fireworks goes off and there smoke everywhere... haha

    Now I've got a better idea... What about we book for next year 2011's fireworks? Or national day's fireworks?

    Not sure universal studio area would be able to take fireworks. BUT maybe you all can try Marinna Barrage?
