Motley Fireworks Display

Short talk:

My streamyx connection is extremely slow throughout this few days. What's going on? This has definitely stretched my patience lots. Never mind, due to "Patience is an integrity", i will endure! I wonder why.

Is it that there is another earthquake occurred in Taiwan again?? Please, No...





-------------------------------------------------




And i was on my way back home after having supper at the Open Air market plus attending the City Day Parade Closing Ceremony. While i was thoroughly fagged inside the car, all of a sudden Melvin yelled :"Fireworks!!!!! "



**Ping Piang Pong Piang**


Chiong-ing (means Headed in Hokkien) straight towards the scene. It was so chun fortunate that i brought my Canon IXUS camera with me. Without any hesitation,I settled on my best spot and Action!

Okay, this was totally a failure. Ergh... not even a single spark. My timing was completely out. Shame shame. Don't laugh. Have you ever heard of "Failure is the Mother of success ?"


Second shot.

Quite nice right??

I didn't manage to get the authentic motley color of what fireworks should look like. Mission failed tremendously. Erghh... Dispirited.

However, I was envious when i realized what Melvin's Olympus camera can performed. Check it out !

Speechless. This was absolutely impossible ba. How can it be possible to take every single motion of those sparks? **Clap clap**


**Attention to all readers, the pictures above was taken with the special capability of an Olympus Camera. not of the skills from Melvin okay.

Nonetheless, not to capitulate easily. I have recorded a short clip of the display with my Canon cam. You just got to sit back and watch this clip. Trust me, never in your life, you have seen such amazing fireworks display live.






Perfect !


P/s: I wonder whether those expenses that was used to buy those fireworks were actually from the taxes that we pay. hmm..
