Remember the dancing fountain Mayor Isko showed ANCX last December in front of Manila’s Kartilya ng Katipunan? The one he said cost 40 million pesos? The one he said was paid for by tycoon Manny V. Pangilinan? Well, it’s up and dancing now and the mayor just officially launched it to the public Wednesday night.

With its shape and lights, the rectangular fountain appears like the Philippine flag when viewed from the top. During the inauguration also graced by Manila Vice Mayor Honey Lacuna-Pangan, the lights moved to various local novelty songs and one “Piliin Mo Ang Pilipinas.” 

At the inauguration, Domagoso highlighted the city government's effort to revive the glory of the nation's capital and its impact in uplifting the people's morale.
The dancing fountain swayed to the tune of 'Piliin Mo Ang Pilipinas' and other Filipino novelty songs as the lights moved in sync with the water.
"This is not for us, this is for the people. It's for you. You deserve it," says Mayor Domagoso.

It’s the Mayor’s effort to revive the vibrancy of Manila and a call to everyone to come and visit the city that was once the center of culture and everything that’s happening in the country. “Malugod namin kayong iniimbitahan, inaanyayahan kayo ng city government, go back to Manila,” he said. “Come home to Manila.”
