Who would've thought that in the country's leading financial hub one could find a relaxing and de-stressing green patch? What could have been just a curiosity for an Independence day treat of a museum led to awe and appreciation of nature's way of inching through the lives of toxic working people.
The Ayala Triangle Gardens is an unassuming patch of green right smack in the heart of Makati. It is accessible through a ten-to-fifteen minute leisure walk from our Buendia office. Its tranquility amidst traffic can be felt once you're inside it, even a whiff of pollution can't be traced in. One would be enticed to jog along its paths or meditate by the greens along with the other people converged there. It's also a delight to capture sceneries and the scattered people walking/jogging to and fro.
That time we went, rains had been absent the whole day and the showcased outdoor Bamboo Museum was highly appreciated. The museum made use of bamboos to encase the pieces highlighting the many uses of the bamboos, its connection with the country's history and yes, since it honors Independence Day, the evolution of the Philippine flag. From outside, the museum looked like the Philippine Flag and it was a nice photo subject.
There are strategically placed benches in the gardens where you could chat away the time or munch whatever snacks you have or just rest your feet up or just idle away the hours. Time is sure at a standstill if you're there. Gastronomic delights can also fill you up within the gardens as there are restaurants available. Security is not lax as there is a roving guard on a seg-way that covers the perimeter.
So, If you're in the Makati district, make time to drop by the gardens. Why wait for another day to drop by when you can have the gardens everyday, all within an arm's length?
