Year End Trip: CPU's Festival of Lights

We were back in Iloilo at around 7pm and immediately put our things back in the hotel. It was dinner time already and we're already starving so we headed to Robinsons Mall which is just a stone's throw away from where we checked-in.  

Since me, Aizel, and Rei had La Paz Batchoy last night, we decided to just order our food in KFC while Faith and Luis enjoyed a bowl of hot and yummy La Paz Batchoy from Ted's. Now I know why people are ranting about Ted's :) After our dinner we bought some pasalubong at Bongbongs since there's a branch inside the mall. Then we headed back to the hotel to prepare for our next destination: Central Philippine University's Festival of Lights.

CPU is located in Jaro, Iloilo and is declared as the only school that's also a tourist spot. Woooow! The 106-year old university was founded by the American Baptist Foreign Mission Society in 1905 and sits on 24 hectare land. Every December, both locals and tourists visit CPU to witness a grand display of lightsinside the campus, so it was really a delight to see different colors of light in the campus. Unfortunately, the light display was until 10pm only.  By the way, there are also food stalls in case one gets hungry.This annual event is a project of the CPU Alumni Association.
This is the first building you'll see upon entering
the campus
