We are delighted that the Annual Christmas Musical Lights Show has become part of the holiday celebrations, not just of those in Alabang, but of people in neighboring locales as well. That is what inspires us to improve this tradition that we have started year after year,” Ilagan furthers.                                                                                                                                                                                        Indeed, the holiday season becomes extra special as you savor the invigorated Christmas sparkle only at Filinvest City!
