A Photo-walk at Ayala Triangle Gardens + More!
Since the day it was formally opened to the public, I was already yearning to go and try out the place. Though it was just 5 minutes walk from where I’m working, I can’t find a time to go since I’m working on a night shift. Until a day came when we had a chorale practice during the holiday, so I took it as a chance and had a photowalk at the Ayala triangle Gardens after.
Located at the heart of Makati Central Business district is a two-hectare of green and scenic landscape. What’s new, is the additions of unique and exceptional restaurants located alongside and the spectacular symphony of lights and sounds.

One night, me and my office mates went to Ayala Triangle Gardens and witnessed the Symphony of lights. Afterwards, we went to Banapple and tried out their cakes. Since it’s always packed at the restaurant, we just bought cakes and ate it at the office.
I bought Banoffee pie since I haven’t tried it yet on my first visit on Banapple. It was great and yummy. Sarap ng banana. The banana itself is already complementing, the cake and the custard/caramel (ata) is parang side taste na lang. This is one of my favorite. 🙂
Bon Chon Chicken
Now, it’s time to try the first in the Philippines branch of Bon Chon Chicken. I read a little good reviews about the restaurant (with some bad sides), so I thought of trying it that day.
The restaurant was almost packed, good thing we found available table outside. We ordered the 3pcs Chicken Wings ricebox meal, costs PHP 135.00. Soda is already included in the meal. As soon as our food arrived, I was so excited to find out how it tasted.
The serving was small, the chicken wings were small. It is tasty and crispy but it was not worth-it for a PHP 135.00 meal. It could be good if there’s a side dish. I like the taste but I was not satisfied with our meal. Parang dumaan lang, di kami nabusog.
Symphony of Lights
Another reason to visit Ayala Triangle Gardens is the spectacular Symphony of Lights. The lights and sound spectacle shows every 30 minutes, from 6:00 PM at 10:00 PM. Everyone will enjoy the beautiful and spectacular show of lights and sounds, which suits this season. And now let the pictures do the talking. Fun!
