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.
Did you already dropped by the Ayala Triangle Gardens? Took any photos? Liked any of my photos? Share your thoughts at the comments section below! 🙂
if I was there, I will stop whatever I’m doing and watch the show… lightshows are always fun to watch… just look at lightwire theater in America’s Got Talent… of course, these is different from what lightwire theater did in the talent show..
I like watching them from a (little) distance. I haven’t watched America’s Got Talent, I’ll search that on YouTube 🙂
Great photos 😀 Love to be there. I know it’s a different experience in seeing the actual scene and just seeing the photos. 🙂
It’s up until tomorrow so I hope you can still see it 🙂
The lights are cool yet hot for many people. Love the effects of it, my mood changed.
I watched from afar when I first passed by, cause it was blinding me a bit with all the flashes of light. Definitely a mood changer 🙂
Led Light is really energy savers. How I wish nasa Pinas ami ng mga anak ko to see this fabulous Christmas lights and celebration.
Definitely! I hope you’ll have one of these in your neighborhood 🙂
I watch the light show at Ayala Triangle. This year is shorter but a lot flashier than the previous ones.
Yeah! Short but astig 😀
I have been at the Ayala Triangle but never to the dancing sound and lights show. There’s a nice resto in the triangle we have visited and tried before. It’s name is Momo which means “peach” in Japanese.
Momo Cafe? Cool! Is the food good? I’ve never eaten to any of the restaurants there except Banapple 🙂
Awesome treat 🙂 gusto ko makita yan at take pictures under it. Nice to see those pictures posted in public.
Hope you can catch up tomorrow, last day na kasi 🙁
love all the christmas! it like indeed magical!! love thw bokeh shots as well! great job! xx
Thank you Ms. Jane 😀
I guess, I have to skip watching this amazing light display. I will have to content myself n alang looking at your photos less the sounds. 😉
Thank you Sir Papaleng! Watching it in person, with family, is better 🙂
we have similar show here in our place every year… the lights are so amazing, especially when they glitter and shimmer!
Cool! Hope you took pictures! 😀
Nice spot to visit during Christmas holidays… I’m sure my daughter will enjoy this.
Since tomorrow’s the last day (/sad), hope you can see this next year!
Light and sound display can really enhance the atmosphere jut like what your pictures showed.
Hehe, thank you Ms. Teresa! I kinda wished there was more decorations like Santa Claus, reindeers, etc. on site also :3
One of the many things i would like to experience during Christmas season.. nice shots!
Thank you! Do you have these in South Cotabato too? 😀
I do agree. The Philippines truly has the longest Christmas season in the world — one cool fact!
I have never heard about the lights show in Ayala. Hmmm. Might check that one one day soon. I so hope to get the chance to spend my vacation in the Philippines sometime in December. I miss the holiday celebration in Pinas!
Hope you’ll be able to go back here in the Philippines next year! Christmas is definitely more fun in the Philippines 😀
If only ATG won’t be that crowded at night, I could have sneaked in and take some photographs. ^_^
Best time to go is 9pm onwards ^^,
I left the corporate world in 2009, the year when this sound and light show started. Too bad because my office is just a few blocks away from this venue. i haven’t watched this. Ayala Triangle is not a very accessible place for me anymore. Unless I have other stuff to work on in the area, i will definitely be missing this one again this year
I’m positive to say that there will be a few videos on YouTube about this, I hope you can see those instead. Hopefully sometime next year you’ll be able to watch it in person 🙂
I attended the light show last year and it was gorgeous. I brought my grandma and it was her first time to see it. She was really amazed 🙂 Then we had dinner at MOMO where they have one of the best restaurant Rieslings in Manila.
I actually don’t remember the lights show 2011, but it’s Makati, so I bet it’s beautiful. I have to take my grandma there this year! 😀
How I wish we can witness such event soon. Looks entertaining.
I missed watching it this year. I wonder when will I see this again. I miss Ayala…
magical, colorful.. just as what Christmas means.. seeing the lights up! wonderful.. happy holidays!
Happy New Year Ms. Mimi! 😀
