After my National Day Parade 2009 Preview on 1st August 2009, I was planning to return on the actual National Day Parade itself on the 9th August 2009 to take the fireworks itself and immersed myself with the crowds around the Marina Bay, Esplanade and One Fullerton.
It was very crowded when I arrived around 530pm at Raffles Place MRT Station and began walking towards One Fullerton, the crowds had swelled up and entries to certain areas such as the Esplanade Bridge and One Fullerton was sealed up to prevent overcrowding. I had to walk towards the open ground between One Fullerton and Clifford Pier Hotel and camped myself there, finding a location and setting up my tripod.
This location wasn’t too bad, although I couldn’t see much of the Pre-Parade actions, I got different views of the Chinook arriving, the Apaches in action and the National Flag Fly Past ! Thereafter, I made the final preparations for capturing the fireworks and waited patiently. Once the Fireworks started firing, everybody around was very excited to watch and enjoy the Birthday Fireworks ! Hope you folks enjoy the fireworks !! More can be viewed here at my Flickr !!
Happy 44th Birthday Singapore !!
