New Year 2014 Fireworks from around the world
I was on the flyover at Kampung Pandan on 12am yesterday. Since the road is elevated quite high and it offers beautiful view of KL’s skyline, the place is a great spot to watch new year’s fireworks from the city. Many cars parked by the road (illegally, but who cares, and we were one of them) and people went out to enjoy the night breeze and also the fireworks of course, from Bukit Bintang and KLCC (Petronas Twin Towers). It wasn’t that interesting as usual every year, and I even heard that the fireworks were called off at Dataran Merdeka due to a protest. By the way, here below is a picture I taken yesterday.
Why not next time have fireworks shooting out from several buildings in the city simultaneously to create a more dazzling and synchronised (all-in-one) pyrotechnics performance? I also suggest fireworks display from KL Tower and Petronas Twin Towers itself as these two are the icons and the tallest in the city. Now, it just went bad and boring.
Here below are some of the best new year 2014 fireworks in major cities across the world that I have watched from YouTube, and I find interesting to share here.
Taipei, Taiwan – from Taipei 101 building, once the tallest building in the world.
Singapore – from Marina Bay, the center of the city.
Dubai, UAE – from Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world and its surrounding.
London, UK – from London Eye ferris wheel.
Sydney, Australia – from Harbour Bridge.
Hong Kong, China – from Victoria Harbour.
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil – from Copacabana Beach.
These are what we called awesome fireworks display! Unlike what we have seen in KL. Last but not least, Happy New Year 2014 to everyone! Have a great year ahead! Time to change your calendar.
