Like many places around the world, Filipinos celebrate the coming of the new year by making a lot of noise and lighting up the sky with fireworks. Char Siew, Midori and I did not have to go far to witness a magnificent fireworks display. We all trekked to Ayala Triangle where many humans and dogs were waiting for the big event. Char Siew and Midori didn't like the loud noise - but they loved being pet and admired by the humans.
Here are snippets of the fireworks this year - taken using my iPhone. I must admit - I wasn't thinking straight - I should have taken this horizontally.
The morning after - I woke up early to walk the dogs. There is a huge mist/smog that settled around the city. I guess - for one evening - we forget about global warming and light the sky up even if it means polluting the whole city with the fireworks.
