Every new year's eve, barangay (village ) Alabang (not to be mistaken with the plush Ayala Alabang Village) holds its mardi gras where groups of young people representing the different areas parade in costumes and props. Took square portraits of the youngsters sporting Chinese and Japanese anime-inspired costumes, masks, make-up and hairstyle at the start of the parade at the churchyard.

The Lomo’Instant Square has launched on Kickstarter. Come join the fun and back us on Kickstarter now to save up to 35% on the planned retail price, and scoop all sorts of extra treats. Be sure to snatch up the deals before they run out. Be there and be square!
