Fireworks Lit Up the Skies of Shanghai
Tonight I went to watch the musical fireworks, which was for the celebration of the 62th of the foundation of P. R. China, in Century Park with a friend of mine. We were told online tickets have been sold out, but the friend, who is from the US, was eager to see his first-ever fireworks in China, so we decided to try our luck, and went see if we could get in if there's any chance. The lucky star was shining over our heads, because we not only got the tickets but also bought them much cheaper than the its face value-260 CYN, unbelievably from a scalper. It cost us just 150 CYN each ticket. Boy, it was a pretty good bargain.
A very crowded shuttle bus took us to the Century Park from the Metro Century Park Station at around 5:30 pm. Jeez, the Park swarmed with numerous people. The show was much later than we expected. Finally at 7:30 pm long-awaited fireworks show, which consisted two parts- the first was Korean part, and the Second was Greek one, launched. Then, the S. Korean National Anthem was played up. It was first time for me to learn and to listen it, which is very magnificent, and most of people stood up to honour it. Later splendid fireworks lit up in the skies one by one accompanying the wows from the audiences now and then. Some were colourful flowers in full blossom, some were twinkling little stars, some were cute smiling faces, some were like wriggling golden snakes, and some were simply waterfall of fireworks, along with wonderful music... How amazing they were! I told the friend I am very proud of us- human beings as we are the top dog of the animals, because we were way more creative than another creatures. While I was gazing at those resplendent fireworks, the strange sentiment suddenly attacked me- how transient the fireworks were as our lives are... soon I shrugged the little bit of sadness off, and kept excitedly lapping the fireworks up until the end at 8:30.
Before going there, we worried it might be raining tonight, because both of us took our umbrellas. Fortunately, the weather didn't really throw a cold blanket on us- raining, but just made me a little bit shivered under the extra warm overcoat of the friend's because it turned windy and cooler...It was indeed an wonderful evening we spent.
