A Total Family Living Experience

Alveo Land, a division of property heavyweight Ayala Land Inc. (Ali), is bringing in a vibrant mix of culture, lush landscapes and active living to enable their buyers to have everything they want within their reach.

"Not only is this in keeping with Alveo Land's thrust to create innovative living solutions, but more important, it will also promote urban development within the Southside and Nuvali communities," said Anton Sanchez III, division manager for project development of Alveo, during a weekend briefing held in Nuvali, Santa Rosa, Laguna.

According to Sanchez, the continuous integration of business, lifestyle and recreation hubs into Mamplasan and Nuvali will give Alveo residents long-term benefits that reach into the future. The three thriving communities of Alveo, namely, Verdana, Treveia and Venare, have distinct characteristics that create their own brand of comfortable, intimate community life in the South.

To familiarize the residents, prospective buyers and visitors as well, Alveo recently organized colorful festivities of the South such as the San Pablo City's Coconut Festival and Mayflower Festival, Pagsanjan's Bangkero Festival, Liliw's Gat Tayaw Tsinelas Festival, Calauan's Pinya Festival and Santa Cruz's Keso Festival.

"Organizing such events has inspired Alveo to come up with another one that gives a toast to the living innovations of its three Southside District communities," Sanchez said. On May 21, Alveo also held a street fair called "Walk on the Southside" at Nuvali's Evo Living Center in celebration of the distinct Southern living experience in its three Southside developments-Verdana Homes Mamplasan, Treveia Nuvali and Venare Nuvali.

At the Alveo Southside Street Fair, each community was represented by various activities that embody its unique living proposition.

For Verdana Homes, which is perfect for those who want to combine the warmth, ease and traditions of urban living with modern-day facilities, guests treated themselves with authentic Southern delicacies, such as flavored lambanog, buko pie and espasol. Guests also tried their hands in making kesong puti, made only from the freshest carabao milk.

At Treveia Nuvali, guests created their own mini landscape and learned the art of Southern furniture as well as pottery making. These activities highlighted the lush natural environment complemented by courtyards, themed gardens and ecocentric amenities found in Treveia.

Meanwhile, high-spirited individuals enjoyed activities at Venare Nuvali. To amplify and promote active living, guests were encouraged to create their own personalized frisbee and participated in yoga sessions.

Verdana Homes sits on a 42-hectare land area located in Mamplasan in BiƱan, Laguna, that has an ambiance of embracing families with a tranquil and dynamic sense of community. Treveia Nuvali and Venare Nuvali, which are both located in Santa Rosa, Laguna, on a 50-hectare land, provide the much-wanted comfort from the daily rigors of living that is anchored on environmental sustainability, ecocentric amenities, such as a grand clubhouse with an open lounge and swimming pools, sports facility for water, air, and land sporting activities.

Rainy Season Preparedness

Source: Philippine weather during the months of June to September are peppered with storms and heavy rains. Those of us who have lived here all our lives are used to the wet weather, used to power outages coming and going, used to the occasional leaks on the roof and of course, the ridiculous traffic caused by floods.

Everyone has their own personal ways of dealing with the rainy season, but there are a few basic necessities we need to observe.

1.) One of the sure occurrences in the rainy season are power outages. They occur randomly, always in the most inconvenient of times, and while you never know when they will strike, you know they will happen sooner or later. So be one step ahead of it, and prepare everything you need when electricity goes out. Stock up on candles, matches, batteries, and make sure your emergency lights are charged. Have fans and board games ready too, if it's too early in the night to sleep.

2.) Another thing that comes with the rainy season is the increase in Dengue outbreaks. To protect you and your family, always have a bottle of insect repellant lotion (such as OFF) handy. Be sure to clear out stagnant water from your households, where mosquitoes lay their eggs. Shut your doors and windows at all times to prevent them from coming inside.

3.) Keep a bottle of alcohol handy, for those instances where you get caught by the rain and have to wade through flooded streets to get to your car or house. This is especially required for women who like to wear open toed shoes- as Leptospirosis is a very serious disease. On that matter, try to wear closed shoes if you feel it's going to rain- better safe than sorry.

4.) Check the trees around your house for heavy branches. If there are some directly above your roofs, it would be prudent to cut them off, before a strong wind comes and drops them on your roof. This is one of the leading causes of house damage during storms, so it's best to cut them off before they cut into your house.

5.) Don't throw out those half-gallon ice cream containers! They make for handy leak buckets, for those inopportune times when roof and ceiling leaks occur out of nowhere. Even the sturdiest, most well-designed roofs can get a leak, especially when you don't watch out for #4. When leaks occur, it's best to fix it as soon as possible after the storm and rain passes, to avoid making the holes bigger. Silicone based adhesives such as Vulcasil and Elastosil are handy items to have during the rainy season, as they're the band-aid solution for your leaky roof problems.

6.) Lastly, do your part in preventing floods by not throwing out small trash into the street, which is the leading cause of drain clogs. There are proper waste disposal methods prescribed by the government, so be a good citizen and follow them. Do your part for the country. As Ghandi once famously quoted "We need to be the change we wish to be in the world."

Other Side Of The Ridge

A feast for the senses in timeless Tagaytay

MANILA, Philippines - A trip to Tagaytay, at least for the young and restive, almost always starts with a spontaneous urge to drive, looking out for the first bite of cold, windows rolled down. Roads getting steeper, trees older; wayside stands for flowers, plants, fruits and furniture, appearing one by one. The road banks and suddenly you're at the rotonda. Jackets on, hoods up -- just to turn to the nearest 24-hour fast food to grab a burger.

Ironically, as much as Tagaytay is considered a quick escape, the mountain city is slowly morphing into an extended leisure area of, say, Makati or Taguig. And while tourism and business developments are always welcome in any metropolis, these changes somehow obscure the intrinsic charm that has made Tagaytay one of the finest leisure destinations in the country. After all, there's more to Tagaytay than cold weather.

Recently, Alveo Land invited members of the media to the other side of the Tagaytay ridge, far-off the busy Aguinaldo Highway, for a one-of-a-kind Five Senses Tour. "We conceptualized this tour because we wanted to celebrate what we've always loved about Tagaytay, the cool ambiance, the authenticity of home-cooked fares and the relaxing sound of nature," shared Eunice Acejo, Marketing Head of Alveo Land.

Indeed, colors, textures, tastes, scent and sounds, every sensation seems to be intensified by the crisp air of cool Tagaytay. So the next time you feel like driving up the city for a Mushroom Burger or a cup of coffee in Bag of Beans, here are five virtually undiscovered spots that you might want to see:

Unique Collection of Amenities

However, condominiums are not the only types of modern housing found in business and commercial districts that can offer its residents the luxury of accessibility. Apartment buildings can also offer the same benefit, but with a more affordable cost.
