very merry christmas everyone!!!

O holy Child of Bethlehem,
Descend to us, we pray;
Cast out our sin and enter in.
Be born in us today.

I will honor Christmas in my heart,
and try to keep it all the year

awesome symphony of lights @ Ayala Triangle!

met up with astrosoc friends on my first day in Manila... we were supposed to watch a play but cancelled it because i was late... :D hehe i underestimated my travel time... i was telling them how much i wanted to see christmas lights in the Metro, i'm not feeling christmas in Zamboanga because of the lack of it.... and so they decided to show me the "City Lights"! hehe

We went to Ayala Triangle... Sigrid was raving about the lights in Ayala, Kuya Kin just simply wants to take photos there... on our way, what i had in mind is the usual Ayala lights galore every December... I didn't know Ayala Triangle was developed into a BoniHigh-like park... (sheesh i was gone that long from Manila already...) They opened the park just this November19... it's a nice place to jog after work for Ayala-based workers hehe.... big place, big rounds, well-lighted, and lotsa restos to binge after the jog hehehe :D
