Meralco (Manila Electric Company) has its own way of celebrating Christmas by putting up their own version of Paskuhan Village (A Christmas Park). The park opened its doors to public a few years back and is going on every year during the Holidays. It just opened early December with a theme, “A Delightful Christmas: A Christmas Outreach and Enchanting Display of Lights”. Together with lovebirds Gian and Ang Babaeng Lakwatsera we explored what’s in store inside. BTW, men in slippers are not allowed inside so make sure you’re wearing sneakers or leathers before entering. The guard is very much strict so watch out.
On the left side upon entering is the colorful Giant Christmas Tree which changes its color to purple, yellow, green and red. It’s inside the train rail where you can also see three small houses and a blow up version of a white robot wearing a Santa hat.
The headlights are blinking, and I think it’s about 25-30 feet tall.
Kids as well as adults will surely enjoy the short ride, three turns I guess. It has an LCD screen in front where you get to see — what’s ahead. 😛
And the Meralco lineman who brings light to the village. I think that’s what they’re trying to tell here.
On the right side, you’ll see the huge Belen (Nativity Scene), and other houses.
We’ve also gone inside Meralco (lobby) but apparently, they’ve yet to display more Christmas decors.
I forgot to ask the hours of operation but I think it’s from 7PM until 10PM. We left at around 9:30PM and there are still visitors coming in. Will get back to you once I confirmed it. 🙂
