Pyro Olympics 2008

We reserved a table last week at Gumbo's at the Mall of Asia to have a nice view of the second week of the 2008 Pyro Olympics competition.

The barge where the fireworks will be deployed from is being prepared.

Most people were not expecting the fireworks to start yet as it had been raining... the first bang result to a organized rush to the exit.

First shots...

From inside Gumbo's... the skies light up.

The barge in action...



The sky over the Mall of Asia has been illuminated...

An amazing night.

Vintage Rolex Oysterdate

Pictures of a vintage Rolex Oysterdate and box. My best guess is that it was built sometime in the 1950's. If you have any information on this watch, I would appreciate it.

Battered but in full working condition

Bracelet was replaced in the late 80's or early 90's

What is left of the packaging
