The scrap-metal belen of Ortigas & Company won the grand prize in the first Belenistas de Ortigas outdoor créche design contest, which upped the Christmas mood in Ortigas Center.

The cubist creation of Union Properties, Inc. took the second prize, while the classical Nativity display of San Miguel Corporation placed third.

Organizers UA&P and Ortigas Center Association Inc. announced the winners during the Pasko sa Atin Christmas Choral Festival on December 14 at UA&P’s Li Seng Giap Auditorium.

Two weeks earlier, two giant Christmas trees made of hundreds of white star-shaped lanterns were set up at the intersection of Julia Vargas and San Miguel Avenues.

More than 150 people attended the trees’ lighting ceremony and the fireworks display that followed it. Guests included Pasig City Mayor Roberto Eusebio Jr. and his wife Maribel; chairpersons of different barangays — Hon. Joselito de la Merced (Brgy. San Antonio), Hon. Jessie Santiago (Brgy. Ugong), and Hon. Milagros Santos (Brgy. Wack-Wack) — OCAI President George Edwin Lee, UA&P Center for Student Affairs Head Rene Ledesma, and winners of the Miss Earth 2010 beauty pageant.

The UA&P Chorale also serenaded the crowd before the countdown and ceremonial lighting of the trees. #
