Investing in an upscale residential development invokes careful planning and decision making. It may be the first big venture for the family, so there are many crucial things to consider.
Paolo Cayton and Elsandra Neri Dagondon-Cayton, a young, successful couple with a growing family, thought things over when they were choosing their own home. After judicious research and comparison of various development projects, the many superior qualities of The Enclave Alabang by luxury real estate brand Filigree easily met their criteria. They are now among the proud and satisfied property owners at The Enclave Alabang.
The Enclave Alabang is in an unrivaled upmarket location along the primary Daang Hari Road, allowing for ease of access via major thoroughfares like the South Luzon Expressway (SLEX), Skyway, and the Muntinlupa-Cavite Expressway or MCX, was the winning feature for the couple.
James Deakin is a man who wears many hats. Who doesn’t recognize him? He’s a TV anchor, event host, motoring advocate, blogger, and social media personality. But with his multifaceted persona and the hectic schedule that he keeps, it’s his being a family man, a loving husband and father to three kids, two boys and a girl, that he values the most. It is no wonder then that Technomarine chose to honor James, a truly exemplary dad, this Father’s Day.
“Time, it’s the most precious commodity,” Deakin relates when asked about the biggest challenge of being a father. “The harder you work, the more successful you become, the more time becomes precious. So it gets very hard to find that balance.”
His daily schedule can become as erratic as the next, starting as early as 5 am. As someone who doesn’t keep a regular office job, making time for his family is indeed a challenge, one that he doesn’t back down from. But there are compromises, he admits, especially since he has to work to earn a living for his wife and his growing brood.
I can still remember nung bata pa ako na hinihintay ko buwan-buwan yung pag-uwe ni “mame” sa Lucena (Quezon Province). Laking lola kami ni kuya kasi nagtatrabaho sina mame sa Maynila, hindi naman kami maisama agad doon kasi wala naman titingin sa amin o maghahatid papasok sa school. Every end of the month or first week ng month, umuuwe sina dade at mame sa probinsya para bisitahin kami ni kuya, mag-iwan sa mga lola ng panggastos, saka magbigay sa amin ng pangbaon sa school. Two days lang sila palage, tapos aalis na. Tapos, malungkot na ulit…wala na ulit akong kasamang mommy sa loob ng isang buwan. Magbibilang na naman ng maraming araw hanggang makabalik sila.
Ang bilis ng panahon, ngayon, ako na yung nanay. May dalwang chikitings na ako na naghihintay sa akin sa pag-uwe galing sa trabaho. Sila naman yung naka-abang ngayon at naiinip sa paghihintay sa ‘kin. Minsan, sasabihan pa ako na ‘wag na akong umalis, ‘wag nang magtrabaho. Kung pwede lang sana… hehe.
The brightest gift for mom is within your reach this Mother’s Day.

One of the importance of celebrating Christmas is also to have a bonding and cherish memories with our friends, families and loved ones. We, Filipinos, love food. We can have great memories over food. 🙂 But whether you have lots of dishes to share with or few, the most important thing is we are all happy, complete and blessed.
Prayers to all the sick people, that they may recover the soonest and may they enjoy this holiday season with their families.
May your Christmas be decorated with cheer and filled with love. Have a wonderful holiday!
It’s official! Five days to go until Christmas day! I know most of you are excited and happy for this most-awaited season of loving and giving, right? I wish I am, too. So many things happened this whole year to me but God is always with me. I am so much blessed with His love.
What are your plans this Christmas? Have you bought gifts for your friends and loved ones already? Have you planned your menus for Christmas eve? If not, I would suggest you plan them NOW. It’s harder to be on RUSH on Christmas rush. Haha!
But above all, NEVER forget to thank God for all the things He has done for you and all the blessings that you received (visible or not). Your life alone is GREAT GIFT. Whatever had happen this whole year to you, KEEP the faith in HIM.
So, let’s start this countdown! I wish you all good health and prosperity. AdvanceMERRY CHRISTMAS!!!
