Firework On 18 Aug 2007

We set off to Marine Square at 1900hrs to avoid traffic jam in this area. From previous experience, the only word to describe the human and car traffic in this area is PACKED.

We initially intent to view from our usual spot - the Benjamin Sheares Bridge, but this time round, the police have banned all public access. With the gallery covering almost the whole of Marina Walk, the next best place to watch show would be below the bridge. We reach the spot at 2020hrs, there will probably less than 50 other waiting before us. I guess many have actually got tickets to enjoy the show at the gallery, or at the Esplanade. The show started with the performance of remote control kite at 2100hrs which last for 15 minute follow by the firework. I took a video clip of the firework.

On our way back, we drop by Marina Square 7-11 for a drink. And I was approached by a Vietnamese tourist asking for help to catch a cab to their hotel. Apparently, our Call-A-Cab services here is not very user friendly for these group of people, the queue were long and they could not make oversea call for a cab with their mobile phone. Anyway, we managed to get them 2 cabs within 30 minutes and send them back to their hotel, Hope they enjoy their stay in Singapore.
