Christmas is just a few days away and a lot are rushing to the malls for last minute shopping, celebrating with family and friends and enjoying the lights and decorations around the metro. Since, the start of November, you’d see different areas in Metro Manila decorates their establishments with amazing light displays. Here we are sharing to everyone the spirit of Christmas and the amazing displays that we’ve captured from different places. 🙂
Dancing Dandelions at SM Aura
At SM Aura and Ayala Triangle, they’ve put up a lot of colorful lights but it isn’t just lights, more of dancing lights where people can enjoy watching, have fun taking pictures and simply having a good time. For me and Tim, it’s a picture perfect scene, aside from enjoying a delicious meal, we also enjoy different sceneries that allows us to capture an amazing sights. So far we enjoyed the display lights at the Ayala Triangle the most and seeing it for the first time was like being in a fairy tale, it was so magical to watch.
Bonifacio High Street
The malls also have huge Christmas trees and ornaments displayed all over the mall and every young kid and kid’s at heart enjoy having their pictures taken, probably pretending that they are actually riding on a real sleigh or transporting their imagination at the North Pole.
Trinoma Activity Center
Almost every weekend from November to December a lot of performances at the activity areas of the malls come to entertain the shoppers and at times even provide a spectacular fireworks display at night. Of course, shopping will always be there and unique finds seems to be the trend these days. My favorite part is shopping, while Tim’s favorite part is to eat only. Haha just kidding, he loves to shop as well especially for gadgets though, they aren’t on sale compared to clothes.
Sonya’s Cupcakes at Trinoma
Here in the Philippines, it’s been a tradition as well to attend Simbang Gabi or Night Mass in anticipation of Christmas day and celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ for Catholics. It’s a nine day series of Mass which is held usually at around 4am. To some they attend the mass at night at around 7 to 8pm as well. After the mass usually, you’d see vendors selling delicious treats such as Puto Bungbong and Bibingka, all special delicacies made in the Philippines.
St. James the Great Church
This are some of the ways we love to share our passion in photography and sharing what we love to do and see in the different spots around the metro. What’s your favorite part during the Yuletide season? 🙂
Merry Christmas everyone! 😀
