Christmas at the Gardens, Ayala Triangle, Makati

I haven’t been to the Ayala Triangle area in ages. Last month they’ve launched the Ayala Triangle Gardens (a.k.a. the park behind Makati Stock Exchange and Ayala Tower One) – a refreshing oasis in the heart of Makati CBD.

Look what happens at night!

It’s the Symphony of Parols. Thousands of LED lights and lanterns twinkle in sync with well-loved Christmas songs. All very lovely and Christmas-y.

This holiday treat was created by lights designer Voltaire de Jesus and sound designer Jethro Joaquin. The Symphony of Parols runs every 30 minutes from 6-8pm on all weekdays until December 23. There will be a special weekend show on December 18 and 19. It’s going to be an annual Makati tradition – maybe Symphony of Parols will be this generation’s version of the C.O.D. display in Cubao, which was a must-see for kids back in the day.
