Nagtahan Bridge: Colorful by Night!

You may have (long) noticed the changing lantern lights along Nagtahan Bridge, also known as the Mabini Bridge, in Pandacan, Manila. While this may not be the best display of lights in the city, I had the chance to take some video clips one late night which I am sharing it here:

[Watch the same video on ‘’ in my old site, HERE.]

Although some have been broken; few do not sychronize with the others; and most of it are already faded, it is still worth passing by the bridge and watching the lights as they turn into different colors. Reminder:keep your hands on the wheel.

    this is how it use to look like & how pretty it was. unfortunately the view is not the same as today. i noticed that the pretty lights were gone and even the glasses were broken along the bridge. i hope the city gov. would be able to find a way to restore and maintain these lights, im pretty sure they have spent alot to achive that look.

    I hate to be such a critic, but I feel there’s an overkill at how the Nagtahan Bridge has been “beautified”. While it does look good, specially at night (where every other trash is not visible), and from afar, try passing by while the sun is still up. Count how many lights and lamposts there are, at both sides of the bridge and on the aisle. Estimate the stretch of Nagtahan and compare that to the other streets of Manila, and see the difference. I agree that dilapidated landmarks should be renovated and it is for this reason the bridge should be respected in a right manner and not turn it into a candy cane bridge. Be practical, fix the roads, light the common streets but don’t use landmarks as a showcase project.

    Tasyo: Oh, well, I was, and you got me there, huh! Now I’m changing my mind, you’re no longer the person I was thinking…iba ka na naman…!!! Give me time to figure this out, malalaman ko din!

  7. Tasyo says:

    Hey Cons! I didn’t know you were guessing who I am. It’s not like I was trying to be a different person. Sheesh! =b

  8. Constantine says:

    Tasyo: Gotcha! Finally, I know who you are, YOU!!! Never knew you speak good english! Hehehe!

  12. Constantine says:

  13. Tasyo says:
