    For 8th of August Fireworks display at 2030, Singapore Team. Expecting Singapore Team to perform.. X our fingers..

    Some external information:
    "One of Mr Tan's special displays during the festival would launch fireworks from land into sea, with each shell exploding on the water surface."

    Quoted from
    http://www.todayonline.com/articles/21578print.asp

    Hope the above information is as accurate as the actual day, if not alot of fotographers will include too much sea water ..

    It was disappointing to say the least. If you read the report in Today, I think they must have seen a different show...

    Can someone tell me how to go to the Benjamin Sheares bridge?
    Do I take the bus until the Marina Center terminal?

    there is another way up.. go to marina bay and take bus 400 to marina city park.. then walk towards suntec direction there is stairs to get up too that is if u wish to go at the other end of bridge that is further down away facing from esplanade and marina sq. but beware of the stairs.. its not in gd condition at the 1st few steps from the direction up.

    actually i discover by luck haha.. i didnt know how to get up the bridge and i am alone so heck and go try marina city park where it is nearer to firing gnd and thinking of a place away from the bridge but still end up on the bridge lolzzz

Else those green, red, purple ones, red/golden flare types....i was letting those off in Indo and China (not cheap though).

    I shouldn't have gone to the Esplande opening one!
    Think i will sit at home for the next 2.
    hmm if u see their webbie, most of their works are empahizing huge ones and multi-colors haiz i never see the esplanade one.. else i can understand why u all a bit disappointed liao.. hmm but i had seen the NDP preview more than just colors.. got shapes hee cool! heart and star shape

    but on SFF website

    http://www.sff2004.com/eventDetails.html#5
