Pyromusical Competition Tips for viewers:
1) Mall of Asia restaurant tenants facing the bay often have good spots by the railing. Reserve early. Restaurants on the 2nd level are better because on the ground level, there are lots of distractions like trees, lamp posts etc.
2) For those getting the Silver and Gold tickets, you can bring your own foldable chairs for your own comfort. Also, it can get really crowded (Check out the photo of the crowd at the bottom of this post)
3) Be there ahead of time. Parking and traffic can be a problem because of the influx of viewers.
4) Microtel hotel by MOA has a great view as well. If you don't want to check-in, they also offer buffet dinners by their roof deck.
5) For photographers, bring tripod and a plastic bag in case it drizzles (to protect your camera) if ever you are outdoors.
6) After the fireworks display, don't leave immediately. There are no bonus shows after but expect traffic going home and in the parking area so park wisely. Anyway, mall hours are usually extended during these times.

Do you have valuable tips as well? Feel free to put it in the comments section and I will add it here.

Here are photos from past pyromusical competitions I've attended. I almost watch every year:

Be warned that the outdoor (silver/gold) areas can be this crowded:

I usually do a reservation in one of the restaurants by the bay (2nd floor of Mall of Asia). For the past years, I go to Bulgogi Brothers because of their good food :) Contact Bulgogi Brothers Mall of Asia at: (02) 823-2778 SM Mall of Asia, Entertainment Mall, Southwing. Here's what you can order: Must order items in Bulgogi Brothers

I received a text regarding this matter from Prudential life, last week but chose to ignore it. I got a call from them this morning asking me to claim the said scholarship. I am probably one of those many people who were skeptical. I even told the representative that I'm not even interested, but he insisted...telling me that it will be a waste if I'll just let it go. Thinking that having those scholarship I'll be able to give it to my other relatives who wanted education, I went with my mom. I can't remember the name of the rep who talked with us but here is how our conversation goes. I basically started the conversation asking her how I won. She told me that it was a reward as my loyalty for being a master card user. She started showing me the scholarship voucher. I am still skeptical thinking that I am threading something on which will empty my wallet. I then inquired her if I will be giving her any amount...and tell her that I wont be doing so if it will be the case. She told me that it is not " money out". She then started asking me if I was a holder of Prudential. When she asked that question, I was in doubt. After all, this might be too good to be I lied telling her that I was once a plan holder of Prudential life but then cancelled it. She asked me why. I told her that I cancelled it believing that it was a scam. She asked me if I was forced to joining. I said no I was not but I later don't want to do anything with it. After that, I asked her if she still wants to give me the scholarship after hearing me say that. She said yes and gave me the scholarship. I had just arrived home from Prudential life with my 2 scholarship vouchers that I got without handing them one cent from my pocket. It might not be a big thing to somebody but I know these vouchers will help one of those who wanted to study within my family. What I can give you guys was a suggestion... Try to outwit them and basically be firm with your decision of not handing them any cent. :)

I guess hindi na lang thru text message ang ginagamit nila na strategy para makakuha ng possible client na mag aavail ng kanilang policy. I believe naka tie up na din sila sa AIM Global, Isang Networking Company. Before ko nabasa to, Im suppose to join the said Networking Company. Aside sa kanilang Products magkakameron ng Free Insurance and Scholarship. Yung FREE daw na Scholarship and Insurance talaga yung gusto ko kaya parang gusto ko sumali sa AIM Global. Pero after ko mabasa to, Parang Ayoko na pala. Thanks for this very informative article. You saved me from spending my hard earned money. :)

I have a question... What's the difference between paying for a ticket and just watching the show for free from anywhere in MOA or nearby areas?

this pm,may 5,2014, I received an invitation from Philippine Prudential life insurance co.,Inc, informing me to claim my free.etc..etc. so I went and got hooked.they used the decoy of a TRUST FUND, but when I read the policy its purely a ONE YEAR LIFE INSURANCE NOT A TRUST FUND THAT I CAN WITHDRAW AFTER A YEAR IF EVER I PLAN TO DISCONTINUE. till now i kept on wondering Y I was gotten by their SWEET TALK. anyway, I'll follow your advice so I can be refunded too. tnx a lot.( if i had read this blog before then maybe I'll not be victimized. God help me.

Sa amin naman ay may tumawag may free daw na ganyan galing sa Manila Bankers tga
releasing department daw cya ng Manila Bankers. Kinausap namin Blah
blah blah…ang kailangan daw dalin eh 2 valid id at ung credit card.
Tinanong namin kung pwedeng di na namin dalin ung credit for security
purpose kc nag-aalinlangan kami kung scam o hindi. Ang sabi nung taga
releasing dept kuno eh ok lang daw kc may record namn daw sila nun.
Pumunta kami dun sa office nila para iclaim edi pinakita namin ung
dalawang valid ID tapos ngaun hinahanap ung credit card sabi namin di
namin dala. Eto ngaun ang sagot di daw pde irelease un hanggat di
pinapakita ung credit card. Kahit daw hindi i-swipe at ipakita lang sa
kanila eh macclaim na namin. Edi sabi namin bkit sabi sa telepono at
text nung taga releasing dept eh khit di dala ung credit card ok lang at
pinakita pa namin ung text message. Sabi nila di daw pwede un baka daw
taga customer support ung nakausap namin. I rereschedule nalang daw kami
at dalin namin ung credit card kya umuwi kami ng wlang dala kundi
pagod. Mga gago sila di nila mahahawakan ung credit card ko manigas
sila. Tip ko sa inyo wag nyo na puntahan yang lugar n yan it’s not
worth it. Kapag pinakita nyo sa kanila ang credit card nyo eh marami
silang kayang gawin. maari nila makuha ung 3 digit code sa likod ng
credit card kya gustong gusto nila makita ung card nyo. tsk tsk tsk
