Memories of Meralco
I know that Meralco took a beating this year from irate consumers but I can never feel angry towards the company that put food in my tummy, sent me to school, put clothes on my back and, because of the healthcare, saved my life more than a few times. Besides, like I mentioned in this post, because Vince and I are very smart with our electricity consumption, our electric bill is a lot lower than most people's bills.
Being inside the compound just stirred up many memories of Mama and how she worked extra hard and sacrificed so much to provide for us. Some of her officemates came up to me to say hi and to tell me how wonderful a person Mama was. So I was feeling very emotional at the party.
There's another contest, this time for communities to join. These subdivisions will decorate a designated less fortunate area to spread Christmas cheer to the people who live there. The winning subdivision gets P150,000. They can either use that money to improve their community or they can donate that money to the partner charities.
Really cool Christmas activities! Very much in keeping with Meralco's "Maliwanag ang Buhay" thrust. If you're interested to join, just log on to the Maliwanag and Pasko website. Have a happy holidays filled with light and love!

Sorry for the dark photos. My camera's battery was dying so I didn't use flash. But considering that these were taken in very dim conditions, you gotta love the Olympus EPL-1!
