I will not post a video or pictures of the fireworks for now because I’ll wait for my sister to give me her pictures of them. What I intend to do is share my experience during our stay while waiting/watching the Pyromusical competition last February 26, 2011.
I made reservations in Italianni’s at the 2nd floor hoping to get a better view of the fireworks. Italianni’s reservation fee costs P350 per head. Instead of getting a good view, this is what we get:
I know, right? What a lovely post that is. Fortunately, since there was no reservations on the table behind us, our waiter allowed us to move to that table instead. We still see the post, but we can see the fireworks better.
So if you want to reserve table in Italiannis, make sure to reserve the ones that are positioned along the veranda near the railing and NOT the tables near the glass wall of the restaurant.
Italiannis is also offering tables along the blue bridge/walkway, though, I’m not so sure if you’ll get a good view of the fireworks.
I would recommend reserving tables in Tanabe restaurant, UCC Cafe, and Patio Guernica for an excellent view. Their reservation is Php1,000 per head, but consumable. UCC and Patio Guernica offers set menu while Tanabe offers ala carte during the pyro olympics.
This is the view from Tanabe Japanese restaurant. When I got here, all the tables have already been reserved with names written on them. This is definitely an excellent view.
This is a pic of my son enjoying his rented cart. Cart costs P160 (up to sawa). We were able to return it after the pyro olympics. The cart rental is located near SM Hypermarket and you’re required to leave a valid ID. I definitely recommend this so that your children won’t tire easily while strolling inside MOA.
Below are just random pics I took:
