It’s beginning to look a lot like like Christmas at the Ayala Triangle Gardens! I’m back as an office girl in Makati but I hardly pass this route daily and tend to take for granted this lights and sounds show thing every evening. Last year, I had the chance to see and shoot the dancing lights during its LAST show. There was also the brass and copper art and structures exhibit at that time. Good thing I brought my tripod and camera that day — Perfect timing.
This year, the lights and sounds show are back to entertain us. Get ready for your cameras because it’s something you’ll really love and get you on a Christmas holiday mood.
Here’s the 2010 schedule posted in Ayala Land’s site:
November 17, 5:30pm – Beginning of Symphony of Parols, a Lights and Sound show and formal launch of restaurants at the Ayala Triangle Garden
November 17 to December 23, 6:00 – 8:00pm – Beginning of Symphony of Parols, a Lights and Sound show (every 30 minutes): Weekdays with special weekend shows on December 18 and 19.
November 23, 6:00pm – Holiday dance fusion at the gardens. Free dance lessons from professional instructors
December 1 and 8, 6:00pm – Christmas Serenade at the gardens. Free concerts by renowned performers.
December 15 to 23, 6:00pm – Anticipated Simbang Gabi
The show is free except for parking, but if your office is near, it’s just walking distance.
What’s more Ayala Triangle Gardens, being like your little Central Park of New York, recently unveiled the new row of restaurants into the scene. From Click the City, here’s a list of them. Some must-trys here are:
Wee Nam Kee – a franchise of Wee Nam Kee originating from Singapore. Known for its chicken rice, roasted chicken, veggies, and more.
Omakase – I first tried this is in Casa Susana, Madrigal, Alabang and I must say, one of the best Japanase restos in town with its good value.
Bfast by Chef Laudico – All day hearty breakfast meals. I haven’t tried it yet, but coming from the success of Chef Laudico Bistro Filipino, I’m sure it’s a hit.
Bon Chon Chicken – This is the official Philippine franchise from Korea and according to Anton of OAP, this original double-fried chicken from Korea removes all the fat and makes it “paper-fried crisp” and then the second fry includes the secret sauce.
Banapple – from Katipunan and Tomas Morato, Banapple is now in Makati offering its freshly baked pies, cheesecakes, and other comfort food.
Now I’m getting hungry. A good way to end all in a day’s work. (I must go there tomorrow after a manic Monday.)
Despite the headache traffic, the rush, and celebrations piling up, I think I’m beginning to feel Christmas in the air. :)
