MIFC: Team Italy Competing!

*Pheeew….boom!! Pheeew….boom!* This went on for 30 minutes during the competition days! Cool eh? It was actually pretty interesting, considering the fact that Malaysia rarely have such events on! 🙂 The sight & sound of fireworks dancing in the night sky was one to behold 🙂

The 1st MIFC was held in the Putrajaya International Convention Centre (PICC). We, the Perutbesi duo managed to go there for 2 of the events *smiles proudly* Anne went for the display night on the 24th of August, while I went for the Team Italy’s competition night on the 25th 😀 However, we, like the thousands of others only watched the fireworks from outside the convention centre 😛

The event is carried out every Friday & Saturday, from 16th August to 2nd September. On display nights, there’ll be 10 minutes of fireworks shooting into the sky, while on competition nights, the event will last for 30 minutes 😛

Every night when the event is on, Putrajaya will be thronged by people from all over Malaysia, & other parts of the world, mesmerized by the awesome display of fireworks! 😀 For once, to be stuck in a traffic jam is something that’s not stressful, & one that brings a smile to each person’s face! Amazing, eh? Mind you, the jam to reach the bridge before the convention centre takes around 1 hour, & the jam after the event (to get out of Putrajaya) was another 1 ½ hours!! Toll itself, from Sunway, costs RM6.40 both ways, with an hour plus drive to arrive, with the jam!

I managed to capture some video of the event & snapped some photos too, but the photos didn’t turn out as well as the video itself 😦 Here’s to share with our dear readers, the event that took place on Team Italy’s competition night!
