It was a night of visual spectacle as the fireworks from two competing countries lit up and painted the sky with varying and amazing colors. I was able to witness the fireworks showdown of United Kingdom and Spain during the second week of 3rd Philippine International PyroMusical Competition held in Mall of Asia on February 18.
Unlike the last two years, I was able to fully enjoy the show this year after I got a media pass. It gave me an opportunity to watch from the viewing deck facing the bay which offers a spectacular view of the fireworks display.
The show opened on February 11 with South Korea and Malta battling for the best pyrotechnics. If you missed to watch the previous shows, don't fret because you still have four Saturdays to witness the event.
February 25 - Finland & Portugal
March 3 - China & The Netherlands
March 10 - Australia & Canada
March 17 - Italy & Philippines
Here's a portion of the fireworks display by Spain:

Make sure to arrive early at the venue to avoid heavy traffic and to find the best spot for your viewing. Also, it is best to bring food with you that you can easily grab when your stomach needs to be filled up.
