My photo
This blog is an amateur photographer's attempt to show how beautiful the world really is. He is drawn to the colors of nature like a moth to a candle light. What are showcased here are nature's grand display of colors at sunrise and sunset, beautiful beaches and off-the-beaten track locations in his beloved Philippines, waterfalls and some of nature's great sculptures, architectural gems, and other views from around SE Asia that he was fortunate to see at one point.

koronadal holiday lights

Narra tree adorned with bright lights

Every year the large narra trees that line one side of Alunan Avenue in my hometown of Koronadal are lavishly decorated with bright colored lights. The light display (and competition) started a few years ago and each year the lights are getting grander.

my bet for this year's competition

Each tree is "sponsored" by a company/corporation/organization. The prize may not be enough to recover the expenses (imagine the electric bill!) but I guess its not the point. The folks of Koronadal look forward to the display as the holiday season approaches, the street has become a popular strolling area for families. I have more photos here.

The New Year is just a few hours away. I hope the coming year will be as bright as these lights. Have a blessed and prosperous New Year everyone!

Happy New Year bro! Ang ganda ng mga Christmas lights dyan sa inyo sa Koronadal. I think its a good idea na sponsored yung mga decoration para di na kunin sa taxpayer's money ang gastos ng mga decorations.

Ang ganda naman ng pa contest dyan. Natuwa rin ako dun sa tree bet mo.

Happy new yea Allan! Have a blessed 2009!

Lantaw said...

@carlo - Oo nga, walang gastos ang taxpayers. Kahit malaki ang gastos maraming companies pa rin ang sponsor ng "light a tree" contest ng Koronadal.

@Ferdz - Sana manalo ang bet ko :D

I haven't went home this Christmas in Koronadal. I did not see the alive and bright Christmas lights in Alunan Avenue to ProTech Center. Hay. Nahidlaw na gid ako sa Marbel.

Greet me to the roundball in Marbel. Btw, How was the Hinugyaw festival?


Lantaw said...

@Aethen - Sayang, beautiful lights this season. Wala na ako sa Marbel sang Hinugyaw. Thanks for dropping by
