transformers of marikina city

transformers is the theme for this year's marikina christmas festival. it launched on november 23rd. marikina's seven-week christmas festival celebrates the transformation of the once-backwater community into one of the most competitive and multi-awarded cities in the philippines. on december 1st, the christmas display entries of the city's 16 barangays will be unveiled along the stretch of the riverpark. at stake are cash prizes.

this is just one of the forty robots that you will see in the city. this is part of the christmas festival with the transformers as its theme. thanks to the welders of the engineering department of marikina city that created them out of scrap metals. it was just conceptualized in september and was transformed into a reality a month after. nestor nierva, works as a welder and he never thought that he could make anything like it. he just soon realized that he has an artistic side in him.

in addition, “tiangge sa ilog” is now open at the marikina riverpark. about 700 tiangge stalls offer a wide range of products, including the city’s signature goods: shoes and other footwear. the robots can be seen at the marikina bridge, cityhood park, marikina sports complex, and freedom park.

joanniebhu, sobra ka naman, marikina naman talaga yan. walang edit yan. simpleng contrast at brightness adjustment lang, pero marikina pa rin. ganda naman ng marikina di ba? syempre, atin ito eh. :)

abad, thanks sa comment mo. miski ako, bilib sa marikina. :) pero di ko maintindihan yung joke mong "KI" sa "MARKINA."
