I was there last weekend, and despite the raging El Niño, participants, lots of photographers and onlookers filled the back of the Mall of Asia in Pasay. I think the huge prizes (think 1 million!!!) in different contests (Streetdance, float and photo) pumped up the level of excitement in the area. I was there just to shoot and in about five hours of sweat, I downed 2 gatorades, 3 bottled water and a large mango shake.
Though my skin was burnt, I am excited for next year, and I know now what to do next time to maximize the time and where to exert more effort in shooting.I'll post some more later. :)
