How to Keep Your House Safe While You're Out

There is really no compromising when it comes to home safety. You cannot rush yourself or even take the short cut and expect a well-secured home before you leave. It takes a great deal of preparation and precautionary measures to ensure the safety of your houses against burglars. So, just before you make that final rush out of your house, you better think again and go back to the safety drawing board.

If you will be out for more than a day, locking the door is not enough. Instead, here are some tips to digest:
  • It pays to be friendly to your neighbors. If you feel that you have that kind of relationship and you can trust your neighbors, ask them to check your house every now and then. You can also leave important messages to them if necessary.
  • If you have a pet at home, never leave them alone. You have no idea how dogs or cats do when they are bored. The last thing you want to happen is to bother your neighbors while you are away. It's also not appealing to arrive from vacation knowing that a piece of your sofa was bitten.
  • Before leaving your house, unplug all appliances. Or better yet, turn off the main electrical power to ensure safety. You can also do the same approach when it comes to your water source.
  • Never leave messages on your door or even answering machines that you are out. Doing so will give information to strangers that nobody is home. If you live in a condominium, you can leave a message to your administrative office that you will be away. Thus, make sure that no delivery man or promo people insert anything in between your main door. Unclaimed letter or brochure is a giveaway that nobody is home.
  • Double check all windows and any openings. Make sure that they are locked and closed properly.
  • Optionally, if you can ask a friend or relative to stay home in your behalf while you are away is the best option. Hopefully, this person is somebody you fully trust.
To have a peace of mind while you are away on vacation, do not rush the precautionary measures you need to do for your home. The worst thing you can experience is to have a blissful vacation and realized your house was robbed.

Early Christmas Preparation

The Philippines is probably the only country where Christmas Season is celebrated really early and observed until mid part of January. That is why it is really not that strange to hear Christmas Carol as early as October or even see a Christmas tree being put up early November. I guess this is attributed to our culture and religion. But for whatever reason, this activity is actually my favorite part of the year.
I am sure you will agree with me that Christmas is really the busiest time of the year. That is why to avoid unnecessary stress; it is better and wiser to plan way ahead of time.

Here are some tips:
  • If you are planning to decorate your house with Christmas trimmings, it is better to conceptualize first before heading to the mall. Have a solid concept and stick to it. Don't get lost along the many decorative concepts being displayed in the mall. Be true to what you like and execute it.
  • Since Christmas is really a busy season, schedule dinner appointments with family ahead of time. Do not rely on your memory. If there are family members coming home for Christmas, make sure block your calendar for them. It is also the time of the year when dinner invites are abundant. Make sure your calendar is updated to avoid disappointing friends and family.
  • List down all the people you need to buy gifts for. The important tip I can give here is to group them according to the type of gift you intend to give. A sample of this can be beauty and make up, clothing, jewelry and toys. This way you can schedule your trip to the mall properly without hurting your feet.
  • Budget. Last minute shopping and preparation mean bigger chances that you will spend more based on what you have planned. Segregating your Christmas money at an early stage will benefit you in many ways you can imagine.
  • If you and your family are planning for an out-of-the-country celebration, early purchase of airfare and accommodation would still be cheaper. Avoid last minutes decisions when it comes to travelling.
Christmas is all about love and festivity. Do not stress yourself. Instead, plan ahead and execute it properly.

Advance Happy Holidays to all!

New Houses for Average Filipinos

What are the kinds of benefits can houses offer to their residents in today’s modern trends? The popularity of houses had significantly dropped due to the fact that these types of housings lack the necessary benefits that other types of modern housings are known to offer, such as the benefit of living within walking distance from popular business and commercial districts.

However, there are a number of new house and lot for sale Philippines today that can offer their residents benefits that can conform to their modern needs, particularly with the needs of their growing children.

Where New Houses are Found
Compared to houses mostly found in residential districts of the city, many of these new houses are found around the outskirts of Metro Manila. Although at a disadvantage in terms of accessibility, the advantage of its location is that these new houses can offer an environment suitable for a growing Filipino family. But other than just found in the outskirts, these new houses are found in exclusive housing communities.

The Luxury of Exclusivity
Most of these new house and lot for sale Philippines are found in exclusive and secured housing communities, which is much similar to subdivisions but smaller. Because of this, residents can enjoy the safety that these communities can offer for them and their children which is unlike those of living in most residential districts in the country.

Wide Open Spaces and Amenities
Another reason why these new houses became popular in the Philippines is because of its amenities. Condominiums and condominium complexes, as well as a number of subdivisions, according to real estate experts, are the only types of housings that can offer amenities such as swimming pools and playgrounds for their residents.

However, many new small housing communities around the outskirts of Metro Manila can now also offer the same amenities that these luxuries and expensive types of housings can offer, such as wide open spaces, swimming pools, recreational parks, playgrounds, as well as sports complexes. However, compared to those expensive types of housings, houses sold in these communities are much more affordable.

Much more Affordable Houses
Compared to houses in residential districts, these new house and lot for sale Philippines are known to offer a set of new term of payment that allowed many Filipinos to own a house without having to invest hundreds of thousands in one sitting. This is because these new houses can now be owned and paid in installment.

Recycling Products with Nice Packaging

There are moments when we buy products just because they have a nice and attractive packaging. In fact, this trick is most of the time being deployed by manufacturers. Somewhat, we have been victimized by this marketing strategy at some point.

That is why today, we are featuring flexible packaging items that can be used as a nice functioning decorative piece inside your house.

Metal Suitcase
Would you believe that this silver, metal case is once a package for liquor? That is right. This sexy suitcase used to hold 2 bottles of tequila. But now I am using it as a holder of important documents such as Birth Certificate, old school records etc. Aside from function, I am sure you will agree that the metal suitcase is one great décor in your room.

Watch Cases
I love collecting watches. For that reason, I get a lot of interesting tin cans with unique designs. One function you can have for watch cases is to keep loose screw and nails. A nice way to keep unsightly yet important items you have in your house. Other use can be medicine case, sewing kit or even coin holder.

Tea Case
Do you love drinking tea? Well, I really do. The wooden box you are seeing was once a tea bag holder. But this time around, I use it to keep important business cards I need to keep personally. Sure, I can buy business card holder, however, I prefer to have an item that has character and it is unique; so to speak.

Now, the next time you see a nicely packaged product, think ahead to determine the next purpose you can do with it. Be creative and be unique. It is a lot of fun recycling packaging as decorative items in your house.

Discrete Philippine Urban Properties

Here are some of the advantages that you can get in owning discrete urban Philippines property.

One of the major disadvantages of owning urban real estate properties Philippines is that it often sacrifices privacy and security. It is true that the Philippine real estate industry is one of the most competitive, in which quality real estate is sold at very competitive prices. However, there are also real estate properties Philippines that actually have its chare of urban decay and inadequate planning.

Usually, urban residential properties Philippines are located in crowded urban areas, where space is already considered as a luxury. Most of the time, such residential properties actually suffers from cramped spaces, inadequate greeneries, monotonous concrete landscape, and most especially, the sacrifice of privacy. In this case, such residential properties are actually designed in a way that it may be near the main street, but is actually fronting it. In such situations, most usually, the only way that you can maintain your privacy is to construct very high walls facing the street. This then sacrifices you enjoying spaces and viewing landscapes, for it further makes you have a feeling of cramped spaces.

It is a good thing that there are residential properties Philippines developers that are actually developing residential properties in a discrete way. Such properties are still conveniently located near the main streets and avenues, while maintaining your privacy. This is Ayala Land’s Abrio. 

One of the major advantages of Abrio is that it actually makes you own elegant and luxurious residential  Philippines property without having to sacrifice your privacy. Abrio’s residential properties Philippines are designed in a way that you can actually have maximum privacy and security without having to build such high walls around your house. This is because the communities of Abrio have designed their network of roads in a way that your house will not have to face the street. In this case, you still will not have problems regarding your driveway, for Abrio’s right of way is actually as wide as one of Metropolitan Manila’s main avenues, which is Ayala Avenue. 

Abrio’s properties are also located in one of the premier low density neighbourhoods in the country, which surely gives you a more comfortable urban living. In this case, choosing Abrio by Ayala Land may be the best Philippines property that you may own.

Tips on How to Reduce Noise Level in Your Condo

Living in a condominium has a lot of benefits. From 24/7 security to accessibility and affordability; listing down all the benefits of the owners can be limitless.

However, just like any other space, living in a condominium can have its drawback when it comes to noise level - may it be coming from inside your own or a neighbor's. There is however a trick on how to deal with the noise level to be very minimal - and this does not mean you have to sacrifice the quality of your living just because you cannot create that much noise.

If you live in a condo, for sure you have heard horror stories of an owner reporting a neighbor because of a barking dog, blaring stereo or TV and to a point even marital arguments from couples. But with a little bit of awareness, you sure can avoid getting a surprise knock from Building Management.
  • If you are a future dog owner, make sure his line of breed does not belong to the noisy or loud barking dogs. To site some are: German shepherd, Terrier, Pinscher, Beagle, etc. Dog barks if out of control can be irritating to your neighbors.
  • Area rugs and other form of carpets are good items to place in your condominium. Carpets absorb noise that bounces on your floor; may it be made of wood or tiles. If your apartment is carpeted, you are in a better situation.
  • Hang thick curtains. Just like the carpet, curtains absorb the noise deflected on your walls.
  • Believe it or not, your wall painting and other decorative items placed on your wall also redirect the noise wave to a reduced noise level. Instead of directly bouncing to you walls, the painting serves a diffuser of the noise level.
  • Be responsible. Keep your TV and stereo level to a minimum. Not only during late hours but during the entire day. 
  • Put rubber cushions to your chairs and table legs. This will protect your flooring from scratches and at the same time reduce the noise when being moved.
  • Phone ringer in medium settings. Although a very few who owns one nowadays, make sure you lower down the volume of your phones. Place it in a setting just enough for you to hear the ring.
Living in a condominium does not mean you have to live a muted life. All you need is some awareness to make sure you are not becoming a nuisance neighbor. These strategies on how to control the noise level should equip you to have a better life inside your condominium.

The Wonders of Water


It's been regarded as the source of life; but water as we all know, gives so many benefits to our health more than we are already aware of.

  • Drinking ample amount of water daily sets your body to a good mood.

  • Provides better productivity at work. Since your body is hydrated well, your entire system will function better.

  • If you are experiencing some headache, do not immediately pop a pill. It was proven that some minor headache can be treated by simply drinking more water.

  • Water helps you lose more weight (to those trying to lose weight). Enough amount of water flushes down the by-product of fat breakdown.


  • Promotes better digestive system. Drinking more water raises your metabolism and eventually promotes better digestive system.

  • Forget about cramps and minor sprain if you are well-hydrated.

  • Water improves the quality and elasticity of your skin. Remember that skin is the largest organ in our body, thus, it required to be hydrated properly. Initial signs you will know that your skin is not hydrated well is scaly and dry skin.

Now that you have a better idea of the benefits of water to your body, are you aware how many glasses do you require daily? Most books will tell you that drinking 8 - 9 glasses of water is a must. However, there are cases that you might need more or lesser, depending on your health. That is why, consult your family doctor to know how much your body needs.

Let's all drink to that!

What Made Condominiums Popular?

Ways to Create More Storage at Home

Having that extra storage nowadays means paying more premium. But fact is, earning that extra premium to afford additional storage space is sometimes not an option. So, what to do? You are left with the option to maximize the space presented to you.

Here are some tips:
  • The easiest way to have an additional storage at home is to create them. This does not mean you need to construct cabinets. Instead, itemized your stuff and get rid of those you no longer need. Optionally, you can donate them to charity
  • Use clear, plastic containers to organize cluster. Using clear plastic is also a no brainer since you can clearly see what you stored inside
  • For odd or irregular corners in your home, you can build cabinets to have extra storage. You are actually hitting 2 birds with one stone: storage and getting rid of awkward corners.
  • Hang or mount the items that you can. This can be televisions, kitchen pans or even bicycles.
  • Use multi-functional pieces. This means they can be used as decorative items at the same time storage. Ottoman is one good example.
  • Boxes placed under your bed are also a good idea. Just make sure you clean it every so often to avoid dust.
  • When building cabinets, plan or anticipate what you want to place inside. This means you can add another layer in the cabinet if space permits.
These are just some of the ideas I can present to you. Again, be creative and wise on how to use the space in your house. Having clutters is something you really cannot afford if space limited.

A Modern Housing for Every Need

What are the reasons that made condominiums popular in the Philippines? Condominiums are considered in the Philippines today as one of the most popular and modern types of housings in the Philippines today. And part of what made it popular in the market is because of its flexibility.

A Modern Housing for Every Need
There are two known types of condominiums in the market today. These are condominiums and condominium complexes. Both types of condominiums are known for their similar benefits in terms of luxury, amenities, maintainability, and security. However, the main reason why these types of modern housings became popular is because of its flexibility in which one aims to offer the luxury of accessibility, while the other offers the luxury of peace and serenity.

The Luxury of Accessibility
Most condominiums in the Philippines are found in business and commercial districts of Metro Manila, such as the many condo manila. Because of its location, these types of condominiums are known to offer their residents the luxury of living within walking distance or mass transit distance from their workplaces.

Ayala Land wins bid to acquire FTI property

August 14, 2012 - Ayala Land, Inc. (ALI) today won the bid for the 74-hectare Food Terminal Inc. (FTI) property, one of the last remaining large parcels of land in Metro Manila that is ready for immediate development.
Given its proximity to C5, SLEX, and the Skyway, ALI will transform this property into another business district and bring all its product lines into the development. This will add to the company's increasing portfolio of business districts, which include Makati, Bonifacio Global City (BGC), Vertis North in Quezon City, and Cebu Park District.

"The property will be the southern gateway into Metro Manila, similar to our Vertis North, our northern gateway development," said ALI Chief Finance Officer Jaime E. Ysmael in a disclosure letter. "With these two developments, we are now well-positioned to capitalize on the development opportunities of these two growth centers, supplemented by the government's planned intermodal transport system. Just as we envision Vertis North to be the first transit-oriented CBD in the north, FTI will serve the same purpose for the south."

Ysmael said the property was acquired at a significant discount to land values in Makati and BGC, which have continued to appreciate over time with the Company's thoughtful masterplanning and continuous development.

3 faces of Ayala Land show stylishly green strokes

Case in point: Ayala Land Premier (for the upscale market), Alveo Land (for middle-income families) and Amaia Land (for relatively affordable housing) are demonstrating that charting new territories do not necessarily mean compromising the commitment to nature and the environment, sophistication and that unique style of master planning.

A Diner Where Our Heart Is…

I am not sure if you can relate, but my friends and I usually prefer to meet up where it's homey and not noisy. These are the basic requirements for us when dining out to catch up and have a warm get-together. Of course, the menu has to be good and at the same time reasonable.

That is why it has been a habit for us to book lunch or dinner at Chii's Grill & Bar.

Last Saturday lunchtime, we booked a table at our favorite branch in Greenbelt 5. For some reason, their Greenbelt 5 branch is convenient to visit and service is really superb. Do you know that feeling that you are really attended to with sincerity? That's exactly how we feel when we visit the branch.

When ordering, you could not really go wrong looking at their menu. Why? There's really no pretense in their food photo versus whet they really serve you.

By default, we order the following best sellers every time we visit:

Bottomless Tostada Chips
Warm and crispy tostada chips with a flavorful house-made salsa.

Chicken Crispers
Strips of hand-battered chicken perfectly fried. This is served with sweet corn, honey-mustard dressing and home-style fries.

Fire Grilled Chicken, Bacon & Ranch Quesadilla

Fajita-marinated chicken, bacon, ranch dressing, mixed cheese and a kick of Southwestern spice in a toasted tortilla. Served with sour cream house-made pico d gallo and salsa-ranch dressing

When dining with your closest friends, the most important menu on the list should be a good chat topped with laughter and spicy stories. These are dining essentials that make life wonderful and interesting.

When Hosting a Party by Eric Capacia

There is nothing like hosting a party for family and friends. May it be for special occasions or a simple get-together, hosting parties provides fulfillment to the host even if there's real hard work involved to accomplish it.

But as the cliché goes, every party has to end. This entails a lot of cleaning to make sure that your house stays the way it was - clean and functional.

Since I have been hosting dinner and parties for quite sometime already, I somewhat created a solution on how to save time when it's time to clean the mess.

Here's what you can do:
  • Before the party starts, make sure to keep small decorative items first. Not only do you protect them for possible breakage, you also save time in cleaning small items after the party.
  • Make sure there are big trash bins strategically located where guests can see them. Buy the big, black garbage bag that is easy to seal when it's full. Check them every now and then while the party progresses to determine if there is a need to replace.
  • It would be nice if you have a buffet table. This is where you can serve your food and drinks. Going in and out of the kitchen and dining area will most likely create spillage on the floor.
  • Cover your dining table with over-sized runners. This will protect your wood for possible spillage of liquid. It would also be easier to wash the clothe after the event.
  • It would also be a nice area to remove your area rugs. Aside from spillage, you are also protecting them from shoe dirt.
  • Let your guests use one common restroom. It's totally easier to clean one compared to two. No brainer.
  • Use your curtain belts to lock your curtains. In case it would be a breezy day, your curtains would be contained only at the far end of your window area. Lesser chances of your curtains to be blown away and possibly touch food and drinks.

Hosting a party does not mean a lot of hard work cleaning the mess after each event. With a little preparation and practicality, you will save a lot of time so you can savor the good times you had with your family and friends.

Two Different Types of Condominiums


Condominiums are some of the most popular types of housings in the Philippines today. This is because of its many benefits which cater to the every need of different Filipinos in today’s modern trends. These benefits, however, are divided into two different types of condominiums, which are condominiums and condominium complexes.

Two Types of Condominiums


The First Type

The first types of condominium Philippines are the types of condominiums mostly found in business and commercial districts, such as the many popular Makati condo. These types of housings were introduced to offer a way for Filipinos to live closely from their workplaces, either mass transit distance or walking distance. This made it easier for them to access their workplaces without having to go through the usual hassles of rush hour.

However, other than the accessibility that these types of housings are known to offer, these types of condominiums are also known for its other benefits. One of its most popular benefits is its collection of amenities.


Some of the older types of condominiums in business and commercial districts are known to offer amenities such as gyms, while some of the newer types of condominiums today such as the many Makati condo are also able to offer indoor swimming pools and even a full-size sports complex.


According to many real estate Philippines experts, these are the only types of housings in business and commercial districts that can offer such benefits for its residents. And because of these amenities, condominiums, such as the many Makati condo, quickly gained a lot of popularity in the market.


The Second Type
