Fireworks and other stuff!

Last night there was a harbour fireworks display. It went on for about half an hour, but due to intense fog we weren't able to see the last ten minutes. I captured some of it with my digital camera, although I wasn't sure it would work, due to impaired visibility. You can see the beginning for yourself in the above mini-video! Meanwhile I'm saddened by all the disasters happening in quick succession in this region. Normally, back in Germany, we would hear only a few snippets on the main news, but since we are currently in Asia I feel quite affected and a bit helpless by all that's been happening. The rain has eased now, but more has been forecast for the weekend, by which time we'll be packing up and ready to depart for back home. My deepest sympathies go out to the families of all the victims and the thousands of people made homeless by the recent typhoons and earthquakes. Here we donated to the Ketsana/Ondoy cause, which we were happy to do (not forced - see previous post). According to the latest weather report there is another typhoon on the way...

  9. lovely fireworks!

    A few days ago you asked what you have to do to enter the giveaway. The answer is nothing! Just by following you're entered.

  10. Thank you for your kind comments. My Mom and hubby will take care of me. I just wish they did not have to worry so much.
    Good thing--when they remove this nasty thing it is supposed to like a miracle recovery and I ought to feel much better!!

  11. The weather seems to be getting the best of us all. It looks devastating, what I've seen on the news.

    The mini-video worked fine... and if that was the beginning, the end must have been extraordinary.

  12. Hi Duni,
    I've been away from blogging for quite sometime and not been able to visit my favourite blogs, including yours. It seems that I've a lot to catch up here :-).
    My deepest sympathies to all victims, and pray for recovery and strength of those whose lives have been torn apart during the earthquake tragedy in Sumatra, tsunami in Samoa & typhoon in the Philippines & Vietnam.
    Have a nice day Duni

  13. Oh, I heard about all the trouble in Asia, so many hardships all over the region. I hope that this typhoon on the way is less severe.

  14. Let us know when you get home safely. Worried about you.
