Ever since we moved here in Pasig, we are always awed by the magnificent display at the Meralco ground in Ortigas. It was only last year that we finally had the chance to visit the said display. Thanks to Meralco for I was invited to witness Meralco Maliwanag Ang Pasko Grand Lighting Ceremony last year and because of that I learned that the place is open to public.
This year, when I received an e invite for Meralco Maliwanag ang Pasko and Liwanag Park opening, I did not hesitate and said yes and I wore my PMC shirt and not my funny t-shirt. For the first time, Meralco is launching Liwanag Park, from the usual Paskuhan Village and Nativity Belen, Meralco is giving us a park where we can enjoy light show, Christmas Village, night bazaar, electric rides and a lot more.
The Liwanag Park however is only a part of the yearly tradition of Meralco’s Maliwanag ang Pasko. Since 2006, this event has been Meralco’s channel in providing support to various support and encourages their costumers to take part by lighting their homes.
Meralco Chief Corporate Social Responsibility Officer and President of One Meralco Foundation Jeffrey Tarayao said, ” In line with this year’s theme of love and light, Meralco, through One Meralco Foundation will be able to support at least 1,000 children to go to school in the coming year. The public, in turn can express their support with Meralco in its desire t not only light up the season, but also help these children attain a better future.”
