Buying fireworks online is a fairly simple process. Still, looking at Fireworks for sale
has to be more than ADD TO CART. These items are serious business and
should be approached with care and responsibility. You need to
understand what these items do and to plan your display with concern for
your family, your guests and your neighbors.
Here are a few things to keep in mind when you're buying fireworks online.
Where should I buy fireworks?
Only from a reputable dealer like Sky King Fireworks. You want a
retailer that's licensed to sell these products. This ensures that they
only sell fireworks that have seen stringent safety standards and will
be reliable. Anyone may be able to sell fireworks, but only Sky King
Fireworks can promise you product that meets standards set by the U.S.
Consumer Product Safety Commission.
What sort of fireworks am I going to need?
If you're planning on putting on a spectacle, you are going to want
to include as many types of fireworks as possible. Rockets, tubes and
wheels are great for show. Roman candles will light up the sky with
color and effects. Repeaters are excellent for keeping the festivities
going between the big stuff. Single ignition fireworks can save you time
on continuously lighting fuses. And do keep time in mind. Some
fireworks will only go for a few seconds. There are others that can last
Should I be concerned with noise?
You should always be concerned with noise. You may not want to scare
smaller children or pets (who should be kept out of the area anyway).
You wouldn't want to disturb neighbors (though we're betting they'll be
enjoying the show). One of the reps at Sky King can help you with this
as they know which items are fairly quiet and which will rock the world.
What laws should I be following regarding fireworks?
You can get more information about the laws in your state here.
Remember to be safe. Only use fireworks in clear areas. If you visit

I actually met an accident at Suntec last June and I felt that Suntec has a role to play in the cause of the accident. I wrote in to them, first they told me they will get back to me as soon as possible, but they did not. Second, when they finally replied, they did not provide a reasonable explanation on their stand. I felt that this is still unsolved and here I am to share with you guys on the incident.
I would like to request for a compensation of $3028.50 to be made to me due to an accident that occured on 15 June 2013, Saturday at the Suntec precinct.
On 15 June 2013, in the afternoon i drove my car to Suntec to settle some stuffs. When I was about to turn in to the basement carpark from Tower 4, there was a car stopped right before turning in to the carpark (like the black car shown in Photo 2below). I saw there wasn't anything blocking it and there was a perfect through way into the carpark, hence without hesitation i overtook the car and tried to drove passed him. But, when i swerved to the right and wanted to swerve back in front of him. I DID NOT notice there was a flat divider on the ground and my car's undercarriage drove over it and created a big bang on the spot. When i parked my car at the basement carpark, i saw splatters of engine oil ALL over the floor. After I settled my stuffs at Suntec, i drove the car to my place, and it broke down at my place there. The car was towed to a workshop and the mechanic told me that the engine was damaged and need to be replaced (See Photo 5 for the damaged engine). And for that, it cost me $2728.50 to replace the entire engine. Some time later, there was some problem to my radiator due to the impact from that accident, there was a leakage and i had to replace the entire radiator as well which cost me $300 (Invoice is as attached in this email).
I felt that Suntec has a role to play in the occurence of this accident. I felt that the flat divider should NOT be placed in the middle of the road. If its to divide the two lanes, it SHOULD be higher or indicate with a pole to make it more visible to the public like the next divider which was with the poles (See Photo 6). Many might NOT have noticed that flat divider when turning in to the carpark and i believed i'm not the first person to mount over that (See Photo 4). The concrete divider was badly scraped with many scar marks by other cars. Moreover the two lanes were in the same direction, why would you need to put a divider?
As a public who patronise your premises, I felt that this kind of thing can be prevented and I should not be paying this amount of money out of sudden just by visiting Suntec on good Saturday afternoon. If the divider was not there or was it high and visible enough, i would not have ran over it and caused all the unnecessary damages.
I appreciate your kind understanding and seek your management to look into this seriously. Hence, provide a FULL compensation of $3028.50 addressed to my name OW YEONG CHENG SHI for the damages that i've incurred.
If you need further details, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Rgds, Shaun Owyeong
This was what they replied. AFTER 3 MTHS. And my name was spelt wrongly! ------------------------------------------------------------
Apologies for late response.
We have reviewed the incident and note that the divider was built in accordance to approved standards. The divider is also clearly visible and there are white markings on the ground to indicate its presence.
Based on the facts presented, it is our view that there appears to be no negligence on Management Corporation’s part.
As such, we regret to inform that we are unable to accede to your claim.
Best Regards Peter Wu Manager Facilities Management
Here, there are some doubts.
1. At the next divider in front, they DO have poles to indicate its presence, but why not the one at the entrance?
2. There are already chevron to indicate the separation between the two same directional lanes, why do you still need to put a concrete divider there? Without Pole even?

JOHANNESBURG: Nelson Mandela, the icon of South Africa's anti-apartheid struggle and a colossus of 20th century politics, died late Thursday aged 95, prompting mass mourning and a global celebration of his astonishing life.
The Nobel Peace laureate, who was elected South Africa's first black president after spending nearly three decades in jail, died at his Johannesburg home surrounded by his family, after a long battle against lung infection.
The news was announced to the nation and the world by an emotional South African President Jacob Zuma, in a live late-night broadcast.
"Our beloved Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela, the founding president of our democratic nation, has departed," said Zuma, whose own role in the struggle against white rule saw him imprisoned with Mandela on Robben Island.
"Our nation has lost its greatest son. Our people have lost a father."
Zuma announced Mandela will receive a full state funeral and he ordered flags to remain at half-mast until after the burial. National flags were also lowered in countries including the United States, testament to the anti-apartheid's titanic status far beyond South Africa.
Barack Obama, America's first black president, paid tribute to a man who "took history in his hands and bent the arc of the moral universe towards justice".
Obama was joined in mourning by a roll call of figures from across the worlds of politics, business and sport, reflecting how much Mandela had touched hearts as a rallying point for justice and good causes after he drew a "Rainbow Nation" out of his diverse homeland.
His death had long been expected, coming after a spate of hospitalisations with lung infections and three months of intensive care at home. But the announcement came as a shock nonetheless.
Mandela's two youngest daughters were in London watching the premiere of his biopic "Long Walk to Freedom" when they were told of his death.
After huddling around radios and televisions to hear the news, South Africans poured onto the streets near his Johannesburg home, walking arm-in-arm to join a crowd of hundreds singing songs celebrating his struggle against apartheid.
"My heart is full of joy and sadness at the same time," said Ashleigh Williams, one of those outside the house, where struggle-era songs filled the air.
"He left a great legacy. I don't think anyone will ever be able to fill his shoes."
Archbishop emeritus Desmond Tutu lauded his fellow Nobel laureate as the man who taught a deeply divided nation how to come together.
"To suggest that South Africa might go up in flames -- as some have predicted -- is to discredit South Africans and Madiba's legacy," Tutu said in a statement.
"The sun will rise tomorrow, and the next day and the next... It may not appear as bright as yesterday, but life will carry on."
Once considered a terrorist by the United States and Britain for his support of violence against the apartheid regime, at the time of his death he was an almost unimpeachable moral icon.
Mandela's extraordinary life story, quirky sense of humour and lack of bitterness towards his former oppressors ensured global appeal for the charismatic leader.
He spent 27 years behind bars before being freed in 1990 to lead the African National Congress (ANC) in negotiations with the white minority rulers which culminated in the first multi-racial elections in 1994.
A victorious Mandela served a single term as president before taking up a new role as a roving elder statesman and leading AIDS campaigner before finally retiring from public life in 2004.
The man he replaced, South Africa's last white president FW de Klerk, also paid tribute.
"South Africa has lost one of its founding fathers and one of its greatest sons," he said.
Born in July 1918 in the southeastern Transkei region, Mandela started a career as a lawyer in Johannesburg in parallel with his political activism.
He became commander-in-chief of Umkhonto we Sizwe (Spear of the Nation), the armed wing of the by now-banned ANC, in 1961, and the following year underwent military training in Algeria and Ethiopia.
While underground back home in South Africa, Mandela was captured by police in 1962 and sentenced to five years in prison.
He was then charged with sabotage and sentenced in 1964 to life in prison at the Rivonia trial, named after a Johannesburg suburb where a number of ANC leaders were arrested.
He used the court hearing to deliver a speech that was to become the manifesto of the anti-apartheid movement.
"During my lifetime, I have dedicated myself to this struggle of the African people. I have fought against white domination and I have fought against black domination. I have cherished the ideal of a democratic and free society.
"It is an ideal for which I am prepared to die."
He was first sent to prison on Robben Island, where he spent 18 years before being transferred in 1982 to Pollsmoor prison in Cape Town and later to Victor Verster prison in nearby Paarl.
When he was finally released on February 11, 1990, he walked out of prison with his fist raised alongside his then-wife Winnie.
Ex-prisoner 46664 took on the task of persuading de Klerk to call time on the era of racist white minority rule.
Mandela and de Klerk were jointly awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1993 for their role in the ending of apartheid.
After the ANC won the first multi-racial elections, Mandela went out of his way to assuage the fears of the white minority, declaring his intention to establish "a rainbow nation at peace with itself and the world".
Critics said his five-year presidency was marred by corruption and rising levels of crime. But his successors, Thabo Mbeki and Jacob Zuma, have never enjoyed anywhere near the same levels of respect or affection.
In retirement, he focused his efforts on mediating conflicts, most notably in Burundi, as well as trying to raise awareness and abolish the taboos surrounding AIDS, which claimed the life of his son Makgatho.
His divorce from second wife Winnie was finalised in 1996.
He found new love in retirement with Graca Machel, the widow of the late Mozambican president Samora Machel, whom he married on his 80th birthday.
In one of his last foreign policy interventions, he issued a searing rebuke of George W. Bush on the eve of the US invasion of Iraq in 2003, calling him "a president who has no foresight, who cannot think properly, is now wanting to plunge the world into a holocaust".
Bush's predecessor as US president, Bill Clinton, had a higher opinion of Mandela.
"Every time Nelson Mandela walks in a room we all feel a little bigger, we all want to stand up, we all want to cheer, because we'd like to be him on our best day," he said.
Mandela is survived by three daughters, 18 grandchildren, nine great-grandchildren and three step-grandchildren. He had four step-children through his marriage to Machel.
His death has left his family divided over his wealth. Some of his children and grandchildren are locked in a legal feud with his close friends over alleged irregularities in his two companies.
