It's that time of the year again when the night sky gets painted with illuminating colors and lights as the 6th Philippine International Pyromusical Competition runs until March 14, 2015 in SM by the BAY! Get ready to make your Saturday nights brighter and better!

The Sudden Bloom of the SM by the BAY
Although SM by the BAY became an instant "pasyalan" place as soon as the Mall of Asia opened up, it has gradually yet impressively bloom into a leisure, entertainment and dining hub. Food kiosks are scattered along the area; hence, you won't need to worry about getting hungry as you stroll along the bayside. On the other hand, if you are eyeing for something fancier, you may try the wide line-up of restaurants along the 1.5 km stretch. 

In case you find yourself not in a mood for some pigging out, you are given the option to do something thrilling via the rides offered such as the MOA Eye (Giant Ferris Wheel), Cruise by the Bay and Drop Zone to name a few. However, if you happen to lean more towards the simple side of life, you may opt to just stroll by the bay as you HHWW-MPSSP with your loved one this season of fireworks! Yeah, there are tons of things you can do here in the area!

Note: HHWW-MPSSP = Holding Hands While Walking, May Pa Sway-Sway Pa

Lucky for me, I got to witness the opening of the competition while indulging myself with some seafood delights in no other place than Seafood Island wherein I got a taste of the famous boodle meal and a few desserts. So with this, permit me to share with you my dining experience as well.

For the starter, I had this calameres which I was able to note as crunchy on the outside but tender on the inside. The calamares came with a honey mustard dip, which was the primary source of the dish's flavor.

Among all of these, the notable ones are the following:
  • Kinilaw || extremely fresh evidenced by the tenderness and taste of the fish meat; it was also not too sour
  • Grilled Liempo || really tasty down to its meat fibers
  • Balbakwa (Delicacy from Mindanao) || a definite first for me that really hit the right spots of my taste buds

Pyromusical and Seafood Island in a Nutshell
