Let There Be Lights

In case you still don't know, or in case you are wondering what that nightly "glow" is at the Roxas Blvd. and Coastal Road Junction is. It's the World Light Expo 2007 Philippines - a showcase of lights courtesy of the China Zigong Lantern Festival and Trade Company.

Words can hardly describe it - it's got to be seen to really appreciate it.

Thousands of lights patterned into replicas of dragons, buildings, landmarks and patterns. Just lights ... endless lights. The place is livened up by break dancers from Korea, circus performers from China, music, bands, laser light shows on waterscreens, fireworks and other exhibits. Weekends are the best time. The presence of a lot of people adds even more to the festive atmosphere.

Its on till April 22 - you can still catch it. Bring the kids ...
