Christmas is just around the corner. Decorations are up in the malls. You would see some houses decorated with Santas and Christmas trees. The streets are filled with Christmas lights. If you walk along Makati's busy thoroughfares, you'd see lighted buildings and streets. Walk for a few minutes at Ayala Triangle Gardens and you'd feel Christmas from thousands of lights hanging in the trees while dancing with music.
If you ride a Light Trail Transit (LRT), you need to wait for a long line before you reach the counter to buy your ticket. During this season, there are a lot more commuters compared to other months of the year because of the volume of people going crazy over shopping. Good thing, in all stations, there are rope stanchions that separate the male commuters from female commuters. At least all females feel secured even if it is crowded inside the train. Long queue doesn't end there at the train. Because Christmas is coming, you need to bear the long lines in all the counters even when you pay your bills.
