Then I fell asleep in her arms.
That was happiness then.

The surface of the pavilion is made of transparent materials in the shape of diamonds, which swing with the wind and show different visual effects. Outer walls of the pavilion are all decorated with eye-catching collages. Visits can enjoy unique local conditions, customs and art performances inside the pavilion.

The Philippine Pavilion

Designed by the firm of famous Filipino architect Ed Calma, Philippine pavilion’s fašade will be dominated by the Pinoy hand as its major visual statement to emphasize the human dimension in urbanization, and to assert the Filipino’s genius at (hand)crafting vital relationships through work, art, and play. Hands belonging to artists, workers, peasants, women, men and boxing heroes, among others, shall be painted on all sides of the pavilion exterior and the queuing area.

To mirror the Philippines own theme of “Performing Cities,” its pavilion’s interior shall present a “seamless melange of exhibitions, performances and videos that showcase the assets of the Philippines’ best performing cities. These cities are Iloilo, Naga, Cebu, Manila, Malaybalay, Puerto Princesa, Davao, Calbayog, San Fernando (La Union), Makati and Taguig cities.

The pavilion will feature daily perfomances by Filipino artists and entertainers, including the Philippine Philharmonic Orchestra, Ballet Philippines, the Philippine Madrigal Singers, pianist Cecille Licad, Joanna Go, Rachelle Gerodiea and the group, Kontra Gapi.

The Philippines has previously won gold for best pavilion at both the World Expo 2005 in Aichi, Japan, and the Expo 2008 in Zaragoza, Spain.

Theme : "Performing Cities”
Architect: Ed Calma
Cost: PhP450 million (US$10M)

So when is the best time to go to the Expo with the no long lines and no hassle? I'm assuming it's September because it's class season? Or when a Typhoon hit Beijing? Or probably World Cup Final (when everybody stays home to watch the final game)? Or no luck at all. T_T
