New Years Eve 2012–There’s No Place Like Manila

London is known for having the most prestigious firework displays.  The New York Times Square for their count down, but when it comes to pure “fire-cracking joy” There’s no place like Manila!

Apart from the real big deal firework displays and countdowns on major cities and establishments, about 5 to 6 out of 10 houses have their own set of firecrackers and fireworks.  Try to be in any streets in Manila during New  Year’s eve and you will have the ultimate experience of being in a war-like zone.  It is thunderously loud, ear drum-breaking, nerve wracking, insanely noisy and freaking smoke-polluted out there on New Year’s eve!  The noisier the merrier!

Here's one YouTube video showing how Manila looks like on New Year’s Eve!

As the fun-loving Filipinos would jokingly say "You might not find Noche Buena foods in the table, but ahoy! there’s a firecracker in the house!”
HAPPY NEW YEAR everyone!
