Rizal Park and Luneta Park - 2012 New Year Countdown

164842_480762748914_561738914_6008742_7480970_n
I mentioned earlier about the 2012 new year countdown in different places here in Manila like in SM Mall of Asia, Eastwood City, SM North EDSA and Ayala Makati, you can celebrate the new year party without spending any money and also free from using any firecrackers and be safe from it, partying with the crowd and doing the countdown and scream happy new year is fun, and then you will watch the fireworks together and do your own toast to cheer and welcome the incoming 2012.

Last year, we went to Rizal Park and saw the dancing fountain and light show, happening at the Luneta area in the fountain zone. I saw on the news that the Rizal Park is preparing for another 2nd year of its dancing fountain and light show to everyone, this is open every night in Rizal Park but for the 2012 new years eve, all pinoy families will be there to watch the show and also enjoy a firecracker-free celebration. A grand fireworks display will occur also afterwards.

check some photos from our last visit in Rizal Park's dancing fountain and light show

Symphony of Lights - Ayala Triangle Garden light show 2011

PC294970

After the long walkathon from Greenbelt 5 to Ayala Triangle, we successfully caught the 1st light show that night and still the place in Ayala Triangle Garden are jampacked with people and photographers, we missed the 1st 3 minutes of the light show but then we decided to sit nearby and wait for the2nd light show, and then after a 15 minutes break, the light show started before 7pm, and saw the Christmas stars hang on trees are automatically inflated and then lights are coming back to life again after the tune of a Christmas symphonic music.

Closed road Ayala Ave before New Years Eve 2012 party

PC294876
I walked from Greenbelt 5 to Ayala Triangle Garden the other night and we saw that the road in Ayala Ave and Makati Ave are closed and saw that builders are busy installing a big entertainment stage with lots of lights in preparation for the New Year 2012 countdown party,  Makati City will have its own street party in the heart of the busy business district this New Years Eve. The road is closed and quiet, and saw lots of people are taking the advantage of doing lots of photo shoots, planking activities, biking, running and jump shots. Makati  traffic enforcers are nice here and you can ask them to help you take your photos, saw lots of people who ask nicely to these (sometimes grumpy in normal day) traffic enforcers in Makati, I'm glad  that they are jolly today.

parade starting point in Sky Dome

Kids and adults in costumes or in anime cosplay are also invited to join in the parade. Event is FREE for everyone to watch and have photo op with mascot friends.
Its a little bit weird to see Jollibee and Mcdonalds mascot standing in one stage, and also with other fast food mascots, but there's a fun in looking at it and understand that these mascots always give us a happy face and always entertain us, the grand mascot parade is cool and I wish to have a photo op  both with Jollibee and Mcdonalds.

Power outlet of the future - USB power plug

rca_usb_wall_plate_charger-5237749
I totally agree that next year some of the new homes, cafes and hotels will have this extra power plug installed somewhere in the walls of their crib. I love this concept to add USB power plugs in my home and since most of us here are using mobile devices to charge and kinda sucks sometimes to stock lots of power chargers in one corner to charge all our gadgets, so the use of USB chargers will be a good idea and we can stock only 1 or 2 cables in our charging area.

I' m going to research more and study on how I can install one in our study room and kitchen.
I saw this info from PC World's 2012 Gadget preview for CES 2012

LG 84 inch UD TV (that's ultra def )

LG84
I saw already Sharp's 80 inch LED TV, world largest LED TV and then Sony's 72 inch Smart TV for the largest Smart TV, both brand tag with "world's largest", but here's another player that comes in and beats both of the brands. LG's 84 inch UDTV is one of the beauty of them all. (more news below)

It kinda sucks whenever I always I have this wet dreams of having some new techy gadgets and out of this world tech stuff. I can remember that I always dream of having new cameras and those Olympus dslr and then me with a smiley face and super enjoying the power of the camera and its new lens.

Last night, I dream  about having a new 18-300mm zuiko lens to my Olympus E520, it was the best dream ever and I test it and took some shots for my blog and photography experiments, then after some minutes of dreams, I woke up and there's this lady infront of me and told me to wake up, and then realized that it was only a dream...arghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

USFC_poster_18x24_150dpi (Large)
I'm excited to watch this circus show at 4pm in SMX today, me and my boy Ash will see a real live circus acts for the 1st time, I'm glad that there's no animal involved in here and just plain humans doing acrobats and performance that will wow our hearts this holiday season. Uncle Sam's Flying Circus set the stage again for the 2nd time here in Manila and I'm glad that I got free tickets from a friend who do marketing of this event, Really awesome gift that can enjoy our holiday vacation before 2012 strikes in a few days.

I dream of watching a live circus when I was a kid, but there's no great opportunity for me to travel and watch them live, but today the good part is that the circus travels and fly here in our country and show us on how original American circus goes and how they perform well. Kids and adults will sure love this and the whole family too... I've posted below some info about the circus.
