20 December, I was supposed to attend the Manila Toys and Gifts Fair held at the Megatrade Hall of SM Megamall, but I had to help mom prepare for their Christmas Party. Late in the afternoon, I accompanied my sister to the Globe Center to have her sim card replaced (her phone was snatched a day or two before). We were told we need to provide an affidavit of loss and an identification card, so we just have to get back. Knowing that the mall will have a fireworks come 7PM, we decided to stay and roam for a while.
A few months ago, I accidentally spotted this painted wall along Belfast Avenue, and told my sister I would like to take pictures of her with the wall as the background. It was a bit difficult for us because we know vehicles and people pass by the avenue, and in a way we were a bit shy with what we were doing, but I was able to take some pictures and that already made me happy. Hopefully next time we will do it again.
Sister and I ate dinner (shawarma) first before we went to the parking area. I loved the fireworks show because the program was long enough for me to take pictures. Taking the lessons learned from the SM MOA fireworks a week before, I really made an effort not to become a deer in the middle of the road again. Unfortunately, my point and shoot camera has a slow shutter speed so even if I was able to take a lot of pictures, much of the shots were blurred and not usable. But of course, I am a happy shutter person. As long as I was able to capture one good picture, I am happy.
