Christmas in Nuvali

While my sister is having her yearly vacation here in Manila last December,  we decided to check out Nuvali in Sta. Rosa Laguna together with my aunt, my sister's fiance and my two siblings. Since my two younger siblings have never been in that area before it will be a treat for them to see a different environment apart from the usual malls they're so used to.

When we arrived in Nuvali, there's a drizzle of rain every once in awhile so we were not able to really explore the place. We checked out a few shops but we never really bought anything. The main agenda is to simply get out of the house and maximize the holiday vacation!

Crowne Asia properties which is handled by Vista Land (aka Manny Villar) makes an effort to spread the Christmas spirit to everyone via setting up a Santa House or a Reindeer Barn in each subdivision/village they owned. Proof are the pictures below:

Look who's here! Rudolph!
This is one huge White Christmas Tree!
It's now wonder why Filipinos abroad would like to come home in Manila to celebrate Christmas. There's a different vibe and aura when celebrating the birth of Jesus here in the Philippines versus other countries. Christmas Carols, Simbang Gabi, Lanterns, Puto Bumbong, Bibingka, Exchange gifts, Noche Buena, etc.Truly it's MORE FUN in the Philippines!
