“Oh my… it’s so romantic darling! *MUAH* It’s so nice! Thank you very much!”
“*Down on his bended knee* Will you marry me my sweety pie?”
“Oh yes! My chuchu! I do!”
Then the couple sat there looking up the sky, kissing each other under night sky brightened by the fireworks!
Let the fireworks,
Brighten up the night sky…
Isn’t it great?
HOLD ON THERE!! ROMANTIC? YOU CALL THAT ROMANTIC!?!? GOSSHHH! That’s ridiculous! You know some Cantonese dramas like to use this kind of scene? It’s misleading! It’s damn torturing! No fun! Neck pain! Looking up to the sky to see the fireworks, and the ashes and debris fell into your eyes, on your head, your face and your body. The sparks fell not far in front of you that might cause burnt if you are so unlucky that it fell on you. Then after the fireworks, you rub your face with a white tissue, you get shimmery greyish stained on the tissue. It’s worst if you are sweating or you have oily skin.
OK! There! This is my first close encounter with fireworks. Seeing it right on the spot instead of my bedroom window. It’s no fun I tell you. It really scares me and I was desperately looking for place to hide from the falling ashes and debris from the sky but then If I went into one of the huts in Hookien Garden, I couldn’t see the whole thing. Both my eyes experienced a bit of discomfort because of the ashes that fell into them. The debris fell on my shoulder and when I swept it off, it left black marks on my shoulders and I need to rub them off. Lots of poeple were quite desperate to find a place to hide from the falling ashes and debris too but couldn’t find a strategic place to see the full fireworks especially those that brought their children along. Wear goggle next time! 😛 I’m afraid no more next time for me!
The fireworks started after the minister offciate the festival. I forgot what time was it because I didn’t have a watch. It’s let off at the Hockey Stadium next to Hokkien Garden. We have a video for it and it’s still editting. Will post it up once I got hold of it.
Don’t get me wrong. I love fireworks very much but not so close to it. Fireworks are romantic but not this way. My idea of romantic fireworks is dining in a high rise building or high place, somewhere that allows you to see the city skyline, any city will do :P, and having candlelit dinner with my love one. After the dinner, we sit there looked out the window, in each other embrace and see the fireworks light up the night sky. That’s romantic LOL! Are you ready to puke? Go ahead 😛 haahhaha… I’m just a hopeless romantic.
