Senator Bam Aquino and his family enjoyed a “rebate” from Meralco as they delighted in the dazzling display of Christmas lights at Meralco’s Liwanag Park in Ortigas for free.
“Maliwanag ang Pasko! At libre din!” Bam’s wife, Timi, wrote in an Instagram post. “The free admission to the Liwanag Park at Meralco feels like a rebate on our monthly bill.”
The Aquino family gamely posed in front of a Nativity scene and a replica of the Jose Rizal monument in Luneta made from copper wire and got a kick out of twinkling lights on trees and other ornaments.
Liwanag Park, a project started by electricity giant Meralco in 2011, features replicas of a church and popular sites in the Philippines this year as it runs with the theme “Maliwanag ang Paskong Pilipino”.
