Philippines is known to have the longest Christmas season in the world, as ours starts when the -ber months roll in. Expect a colorful and festive mood in everyone, traffic and almost every week mall sales included. One of the things I look forward to every year is the Dancing Lights and Sounds Show in Makati.
“Make It Magical” ♥
I remember when I was still an intern at a software development company way back 2009, it was my first encounter of the Dancing Lights & Shows Show at the Ayala Triangle Gardens.
People stop on their way to public transportation stations or malls to watch this treat. Thousands of lights couple with Christmas songs is a great way to get into the Yuletide spirit 🙂
Think they spend too much on this, electricity consumption wise? Think again. They used LED lights for each and every component of this production: cyber spheres, flash pods, meteor lights, intelligent lights, and laser lights.
It’s not everyday that I have in hand a better camera to take pictures with. These were actually taken way back November 16. Even if I was in a hurry from one event to another within Ayala, I spent a few minutes taking some photos. The place was packed past 6pm, so I thought of coming back after my event. I’m happy that I did and I was able to practice taking bokeh shots!
I loved how these two turned out. Don’t ask about the other ones :p
The Lights and Sounds Show runs every 30 minutes from 6PM to 9PM, until December 30 only. Three major roads in Makati (Ayala Ave., Makati Ave., and Paseo de Roxas) are also lined up with decorations and lights.
