10 Photos of Cubao at Night

Almost 12 midnight, with nothing to do, Z Pav and I take our chances at Cubao.

The footbridge under MRT crossing Araneta Center and EDSA

Psychedelic Postmodern Pillars

Throw your money and lungs here.

Get out of the way, person.


Walk

Small circle small circle big circle

I just love empty parking lots.

Gazebo with neon lights.


Night life with a band at Kangaroo Jack.


Choo choo twain. Train tracks the divide EDSA. MRT2 tracks viewed from an LRT2 train.

@Gillboard, daan ka onetime, marami nang nagbago. hehe. Actually, namimiss ko yung 80's at 90's na Cubao. The new Cubao has a hard time keeping up with the more modern malls.

@pusang kalye OO... sugal talaga tsong. Hindi ako gumagamit ng tripod sa mga walk kasi takaw mata, so pinapatong ko lang talaga yung camera sa gutter. Inadvice ko nadin yung friend ko na delikado nga doon sa gabi, kasi maraming holdaper doon, pero I guess, kasama yon sa thrill. :)

@PMM012 ---THanks sir for he invite, adding your site :)

gusto ko yung first and last shot mo. Nakaka-elibs yung shot na ganun. ibang klase. Yung takbo ng sasakyan nakukuhaan mo.

That last photo is fantastic. I hear Boysen, in cooperation with the MMDA, is making large-scale artworks on the high walls and some MRT stations of EDSA. Have you seen them already?

ang ganda ng unang litrato. pati yung mga psychedelic pillars ng gateway.

batang cubao ako pero sa taguig na kami naka-base ni misis. tapos nasa china pa ako ngayon. miss ko na ang kinalakihan ko! \m/

@nobenta, tama ka dyan pare, iba talaga ang cubao, naghahalo halo ang mahirap at mayaman. Kakaiba din ang history ng place na to. Malapit lang din ako dito nakatira, at ang masasabi ko lang. Nandito na halos lahat. Mejo tinatry nila siya ngayon irevive.. magkaron kasi ng time na mejo naluma na siya at mejo naluge... although ngayon nirerenovate nila.

@khant, thanks bro. Matagal ko nayan gustong kunan. I'll get a better shot next time hehe madalian lang kasi, sinita kami ng guard sa overpass.

@krn, thanks :D I get a lil help from photoshop. hehe problemado kasi yung pic :D

@Myk I haven't seen it yet. Wait lang ireresearch ko :D Pero I like the concept already. :D

thanks for resurrecting cubao through your shots. cubao kasi is in transition (has been for years) from being the next quiapo to its ideal of being the renovated city to go to. i'm referring to araneta center lang pala. the rest of cubao is like quiapo circa '80s.
