Who went to catch the fireworks display at Marina/Esplanade?

What time were u there?

How much time are you willing to spend to get a good position and then wait for
the firework display????

Yesterday was around at 9pm drove in, not to take fireworks. The spot is good, but not good for photography for some reasons.

For the past few sessions of fireworks, i was around at 5-6pm for a few good spots.

You are one of the lucky few. Far away from the heat, pandemonium and chaos...and jams. :confused:

Never bother. Knowing it's going to be a mad squeeze and rush, I stayed at home with my family and watch the fireworks from CNA.

Wasn't really enjoying the fireworks on my LCD TV with my folks even though the fireworks were all bursting.

Probably, I'm gonna dislike Xmas and New Year thereon. There are just some things that hurts u when u think of it as u try to ignore it and get it on but u can't since waking up alone will remind u of the problem's existence.

I'm sorry if you felt that way. Some of us do share the same kind of feeling too ... but as always, life has to go on. I hope your 2007 will be a different one. Better or not, up to you to make it :)

cheers~
