IN PHOTOS: UP Diliman Pag-iilaw 2018

| Written by MPRO_admin

The UP Diliman signaled the start of the holiday season on campus with its annual lighting ceremony or Pag-iilaw on November 29.

This year’s highlight is the lantern titled “Kamalayag,” an amalgamation of kamalayan (consciousness), malaya (free), alay (offering), and layag (sail). Created by Prof. Toym Imao, who has been designing the Pag-iilaw’s centerpieces since 2015, “Kamalayag” also reflects the season’s theme, “Paglaot, Pagdaong” (sailing out to sea, docking).
