Lots of beautiful places to enjoy during December. All places filled with Christmas spirits, few fanciful figures, Nativity scenes are set up beautifully throughout the city. It was a feeling of excitement for the children to see the basketful of presents, Nativity scene, Christmas bells, whistles, firecrackers, frosty decorations, sparkling Christmas lights, hearty foods, family walked together going to midnight mass, school parties as it was typically for the youngsters to enjoy. For the youngsters and the youngsters at heart, Make a wish and Santa will come! Here’s a closed-up picture of dear Santa. I took this picture for you! Definitely, Santa Claus never get absent to give gifts for the children. He is coming to town again and again…
What a glorious night! We arrived home late last night. Me and my sister visited Meralco compound to check what’s new for this year 2013. Everything was totally the same as last years presentation, only half of the compound was lighted, the only ones present; Giant Christmas tree, the Chapel, Native houses, 3 Wise kings, Tsu-tsu train, Holy family (Mary, Joseph and Baby Jesus) to name a few. That means, I can only document what was there at present. I realized, I feel comfortable to capture what was there, not too many people around unlike during Christmas eve, it was jam-packed with people. According to the guard, they will light everything this Christmas eve. Oh! I would be missing half of it. I need to come back again in days time until completion is done.
It’s again the season for sharing. Pick a gift and get started giving. Celebrate Christmas with fun and beyond… Get ready kids, Santa again is coming to town. It’s a holiday cheers and memories before the year ends. ”Happy Holidays Everyone”

Every year,event takes place at the same venue. It was recognized as one of the most glamorous parade of floats carrying favorite movie themes. Just like the past years, it become an integral part of the holiday season every December.The Christmas Lights and Sounds Float Parade was a project of the Rotary Club of Mutya ng Pasig and Ortigas group of companies with the help of School teachers, Barangay and City officials.
All floats was represented in a unique way carrying distinctive characters with different movie theme.The big vehicle carrying a huge generator,the entire platform was fabulously decorated following their own theme and it shines remarkably vivid at night with the multi-colored lights attached to the whole surface of the float.
For me, all floats appeared to be very creative and remarkable to the eyes of the passers around. First glimpse,you’ll surely stop and park. All floats lining up the side street beside the SM Hypermarket. I was having a night fun photographing all the floats but, having a hard time looking for the best spot to shoot, it was full of people around every corners of the street. What a popular attraction.It was for the masses to enjoy.

For me, it was the best theme of the night, The Avatar float.Photographing the scene will take up the entire float. These float carrying the movie theme,”Avatar,”It represents the flying dragon with the two main major characters.Earlier,I’ve published the Avatar float. I’ve completed all the scenes,which includes the Avatar dancers and other props like the prayer tree.
A lavish display and very pretty Avatar dancers.
Hand crafted stuffs and figure of a huge dragon. Just wondering,how many workers get involved and how long to finish one huge float.
Creating a float like this would be a lengthy process considering all the lights,characters and some props added.I’m sure,it was the work of art of Filipino talented artist making interpretative figuresto make appear like the original one.
Pretty girls with props and wearing their glamorous costumes.

The evening was quite fun. I was so tired upon reaching home. I was very anxious to upload all these photos taken during the night parade and of course, I was so excited to view some beautiful pieces of my own photography. My effort was all worth it. I’m looking forward again for next year’s Christmas light and sound float parade. Merry Christmas everyone!
