The Ayala Triangle Garden is a regular destination for the dogs and I on weekends. It’s very close to the House of Queens and unlike other parks in the area, Dogs are not banned. Of course – there is an unwritten rule that you have to pick up after your dogs.
The whole area has transformed in the last couple of years. It used to be a wooded patch of land which no citizen of the City will dare explore for fear of encountering wild beasts. Now – it is a well manicured garden which serves as a park for the city residents. In the past month, restaurants have opened. Last year, Ayala actually started a nice tradition. They installed Musical lights which dance to Christmas tunes. The music is played every half hour between 6 :00 PM and 8:00 PM.
Tonight, the dogs and I checked it out. There were a lot of people in the gardens – which for me is disappointing because on regular evenings – it is our sanctuary. Of course – I’m also thankful that Char Siew, Midori and I was able to enjoy the garden when it was an unpopular spot and we can have our quite time. Tonight – we had to share it with our neighbors in the Metro.
The lights were amazing. It seems like the dogs also enjoyed the walk. They are now fast asleep – tired from the excitement of seeing the lights and being pet by the people who found them cute and cuddly.
If you’re from Metro Manila – do check it out. I’m sure you’ll find it a neat setup and if the Holiday spirit has not touched you yet, I think time spent in the Garden will get you in the mood for this year’s Holiday season.
