Beyond the Christmas Lights at Marriott Hotel Manila


 IMG_8021 As a Part of Marriotts Customer’s Appreciation Week, since Christmas is fast approaching as a yearly tradition of smiles, songs, and a spread of feasts and treats were the highlights at the recently-held Christmas tree lighting at Marriott Hotel Manila.


At an 18 feet , its commanding height complemented the wide lobby staircase. Guests gathered around it while exchanging pleasantries with their friends and colleagues.


Director of Marketing Communications Michelle Garcia welcomed everyone who started the holiday cheer at Marriott Hotel Manila and shared how this year’s celebration is more meaningful because of their partnership with Operation Smile. Together, they will provide free surgeries to children who have cleft lip, cleft palate, and other facial deformities. And to stress how Operation Smile has made a difference in the lives of the children, she introduced Chadleen Lacdo-o, a former cleft palate patient of Operation Smile who is now an accomplished singer. Her rendition of “When You Believe” was inspiring from start to finish.


With everyone in high spirits, General Manager Bruce Winton presented Marty, the reindeer. Every purchase of the stuffed reindeer toy (for only P500) will help raise funds for the surgery of kids of Operation Smile.


Helping light the tree is one of the well-known celebrity families today, Kevin and Mitch Tan with their adorable baby Katleena Margaret. As soon as the lights begin to sparkle, a burst of harmonious angelic voices echoed through the lobby courtesy of Himig RoseƱa, the choral ambassador of Colegio de Santa Rosa-Makati.


As everyone’s hearts lit with the true meaning of the season, Charice Pempengco surprised everyone with a special song number followed by a grand entrance of Santa Claus, where kids excitedly lined up to whisper their Christmas wish and receive their early present.


The merriment ensued with the lavish display of food prepared by the award-winning culinary team of Executive Chef Miek Brammer. There were white and red sauces for different kinds of pasta plus an assortment of meats and veggies which the guests chose according to their fancy. The live station also showcased the Smoked Bone-in Ham which is part of the Savory Package offered by the hotel for the festive season. Its honey-glazed skin and tender meat is perfect with the whipped potato and buttered corn on the side. Kids and the kids-at-heart kept going back to the dessert station which sampled the holiday treats at the Marriott Bakery. Guests grilled their own marshmallows and were free to add biscuits and chocolates.


Marriott Hotel Manila has always been a happy place for business and vacation. And whichever way guests choose to celebrate Christmas this year because of its festive feasts and treats, it is made more meaningful because Marty offers cheer―both for the giver and the happy child who will be able to smile along. It is indeed the season to be jolly!

Nationwide search is back on for the best of the archipelago’s rapidly expanding real estate sector


IMG_1248What you need to know about Philippines Property Awards 2016

MANILA, Philippines – 29 October 2015

Known as one of Southeast Asia’s most exciting property markets, the Philippines’ biggest real estate awards held its official press conference last29 October, at the Namayan Room of the Fairmont Makati, the official hotel venue sponsor of the Philippines Property Awards 2016.

This is the fourth consecutive year that Ensign Media organized the Philippines Property Awards. The award giving body is widely recognised in the industry for its fairness and transparency. The Awards will begin accepting nominations from developers and the general public on 29 November 2015. Property firms are free to enter as long as a third party nominates them.


In the next six months, the judging panel in the Philippines will be looking for the next Ayala Land Inc, Shang Properties Realty Corp or SM Prime Holdings, all former winners of the Best Developer accolade.. These developers, along with all past winners in various categories of the Philippines Property Awards, have left an indelible mark in the industry and have set a high benchmark by which current and future property developments are measured.

Ayala Land claimed the Best Developer (South East Asia) title in 2014 during the South East Asia Property Awards grand finals held in Singapore. Next year, one outstanding developer from the Philippines could win that honour again.

According to Moody’s Investors Service latest outlook report, the Philippines is enjoying a rare kind of economic resilience that is bound to trickle down to the real estate industry. Despite the 2016 national elections, growth momentum will be sustained, according to the rating agency, “buffeting neighboring countries and emerging markets as a whole.”

There will be 26 trophies to be given away at the awards ceremony next year. Categories are grouped into three main sections, namely Developer, Development and Design, covering the condominium, housing, hotel, office, retail, green and villa segments.

“We’re not only holding a launch party for our 2016 event in the Philippines,” said Terry Blackburn, CEO of Ensign Media, the publisher of Asia’s industry-leading monthly magazine, Property Report. “This is a showcase of our commitment to the country’s exciting real estate market, and to recognise and reward the most significant contributions to the sector from local developers, building on our experience with the Asia Property Awards in the past 10 years.”

The press conference also saw the launch of the second Property Report Congress. After the resounding success of the first Congress, Ensign Media plans to bring together the country’s industry leaders and experts for a Philippine-focused all-day seminar and network event.

As is the case with all the events of the Asia Property Awards, , successful entries will be supervised by one of the world’s largest accounting firms, BDO.

International. Winners will be revealed at the glittering black-tie awards gala on Thursday, 7 April at the Fairmont Makati.

One additional award – chosen by the editors of Property Report – will be presented to the Real Estate Personality of Year whose influence and achievements resonates across the Philippine archipelago. Past recipients of this prestigious honour are property veteran Antonino Aquino, President and CEO of Ayala Land; highly respected tycoon Dr. Andrew L. Tan, Chairman and Founder of Megaworld Corporation; and green advocate Ramon Fernando D. Rufino, Executive Vice-President of The Net Group, and incumbent chairman of the Philippine Green Building Council.
