Happy New Year 2013 Pattaya Fireworks

Sawadee Khrap

This is my first attempt at making a video using Photoshop and getting it on the blog.  Crude but shows the essentials. I’m not sure how to render for the web – also had to upload to YouTube using Microsoft Live Writer as a blog editor.  just guessed at the settings.

CaptureThe opening of the video was the local TV station’s coverage of the Bali High Port Celebration.  The festivities started on Christmas Eve and lasted till New Year Eve – tonight.  I just captured some footage from this evening – just before midnight and then the fireworks.

As I pan, you can see from Jontiem Beach area on the left to South Pattaya, right  – with Bali High in the middle having the largest display.    The screaming you hear in the background was the girls on the roof of our building enjoying the show – I stayed in my condo, safe from them and any mosquitoes.

It’s a hell of a lot more spectacular from the balcony than the video shows – so next year, plan on coming and see it in person, accompanied of course, by your favorite local young man – he and the show are waiting for you.
