Christmas Lights in Makati

The city of Makati is the premier business district of the Philippines. Boasting one of the highest revenue generating cities of the country, their local government can afford to flaunt their wealth by decorating their main business roads with Christmas lights each year.

Usually, their Christmas lights on the road islands have yellow color and without any form or shape. This year their Christmas lights have white color and are arranged vertically like big cylinders or funnels. Another difference is they have a special effect, like a dropping luminous white liquid, or a low shooting star from afar.

The photos above and below are taken along Ayala Avenue in between the Makati Stock Exchange and BPI branch.

This shot was taken along Makati Avenue, the rear leads to Paseo de Roxas.

The last photo below is at the corner of Ayala and Makati Avenues, this time with various Christmas lanterns. Peninsula Manila's waterfalls provide the background. Sorry for the blurred shot, as they are all taken with just a camera phone.

I hope that all politicians and government officials would spend the taxpayers' money wisely this Christmas season, and would not enrich themselves by doing corrupt practices in buying such Christmas decors.

Advance Merry Christmas!
