Will You Do This For Your Sweetheart?

The article above is taken from a newsletter by Nagaoka Municipal which I came across some time ago. It's about the Nagaoka Fireworks Festivals which will be held in early August every year.
For those who don't know about this Fireworks Festivals, let me tell you. Nagaoka has the biggest and best fireworks in whole of Japan. Is that enough to get you have some idea how big is it? I guess so, right?
In the article, it's stated that it's open to anyone who wishes to send their messages during any special occasions, like wedding, new birth and birthday; or to their feelings towards their love ones. The messages will be read out before the launch of the fireworks. Besides that, some might prefer to having a recorded messages by themselves that will be played before the fireworks are launched.
Sounds nice, doesn't it? But not until you get to know how much they'll charge you. I guess you'll be shocked to know that the starting price will be from 45,000yen. That's RM1,500! I know the fireworks here in Japan is far better and nicer than the few-minutes-fireworks in Malaysia. Still, it's quite a big sum, no?
I wanted to send messages myself actually. But after knowing the amount it cost, I might as well play with these.
Please don't tell me I'm a small kid again!

haha...playing pop pop huh. RM1,500 ain't expensive lar. i think it's quite cheap d ler. i mean it's more appropriate when one wants to propose to their beloved one or sth like tat huh.(1,500 is quite reasonable for this d). But wait a min, 1,500 charged for how long sin...don tell me juz for 3mins of fireworks ar...

dodo: you made a good point there. i know there sure be a catch in the advertisement. as expected, it wasn't written there how long the fireworks will last. 3 seconds maybe? pop once, RM500. 2nd pop, another RM500. final pop, the last RM500. not bad, eh!

your super duper dodo's kolok mee fireworks was something unexpected la. even you made my musang almost mati terkejut katak! :P

jaecy: haha, true also. if they charge something like RM1.50 per fireworks, even small kids will be keen to send their messages to their pets :P

Calvin said...

michelleg: you've made a wrong interpretation there already. what i meant was i would like to send messages myself, and not send messages TO myself. they are totally two different things :)
