Vista Residences Project Launch

Vista Residences Project launch was held last November 22 at the Green Sun Hotel in Makati City. A Bohemian inspired theme and concert for everyone that made the night more fun in the house. Showcasing different projects in Manila, Baguio, and Cebu to cater one's expectations for a comfortable lifestyle.

Vista Residences is the condominium development arm of Vista Land. Since its launch in 2003, it has become a formidable player in the fast-growing vertical development sector of the real estate industry. Vista Residences continues to address the rising demand for condominium living with over 50 mid and high-rise towers across the country’s most progressive business districts.

Vista Residences takes pride in building for the nation's future leaders. This is by truly understanding the journey of students and the pressure and difficulties that come with it. We believe they deserve nothing but the best so we have been very dedicated in creating better living options for them – the birth of the University Series Projects.

Our Story showcases the launch of five university projects that were renamed to create a more academic, student-centered vibe of the projects.

Vista Recto will now be ORWELL HEIGHTS, named from the English novelist George Orwell who was popularly known on his works about awareness on social injustice, literary criticisms, and support on social equality.

Vista Plumeria will now be PLUMERIA HEIGHTS, named after the flower that once grew and bloomed profusely in Manila, more popularly known by its local name kalachuchi.

Vista Heights 2 will now be named as TENNYSON HEIGHTS from the British poet Alfred Lord Tennyson who became known when he was appointed as Poet Laureate during the era of Queen Victoria.

Vista Laong Laan will now be BRADBURY HEIGHTS named after the American author and screenwriter Ray Bradbury.

Vista Katipunan 3 will now be named HAWTHORNE HEIGHTS from the American novelist, dark romantic and short storywriter, Nathaniel Hawthorne.

Vista Residences is also proud to launch two Prime Properties in this event. Firstly, the Suarez Residences Cebu is the first development of Vista Residences in the Queen City of the South. Designed to create the ideal human habitat by responding to life’s necessities, Suarez Residences Cebu is master planned to redefine condominium living – a shopping center, hotel and residential hub in one tower; a perfect investment for those who are working or studying in uptown Cebu.

Lastly, Encore South Triangle – is a 32 storey development that will stand along Eugenio Lopez Drive; a short distance away from ABSCBN, and GMA, Trinoma, SM North EDSA, Miriam College, Ateneo de Manila and UP Diliman.

Pilipinas Shell's Newly Upgraded Malampaya Exhibit at The Mind Museum

Going out on a date with my daughter is a precious moment for the both of us. Visit to The Mind Museum is our first time together and this excites us! Its going to be fun, educational and memorable—well, every time we spent time together is always memorable and we both treasure each day we spent it together. Since my daughter, Rain, is a homeschooler, visit to the Pilipinas Shell's Malampaya Exhibit on its opening day last December 8 was a big advantage for her.

For me, the visit to the Malampaya exhibit gains us both new knowledge that I myself doesn't even remember if the journey of natural gas was taught to us in a fun way when I was in grade school and high school. Here at the exhibit together with all the visitors, we will all rediscover what power really means in the Philippines—the fun and interactive way! Let's go!

For a start, we were treated to an experimental walkthrough to understand more deeply the journey of natural gas. Watch how gas is formed, extracted, and distributed from start to end before it powers up to 40% of homes in Luzon.

Kids and kids-at-heart can play and gain more knowledge at the newly-installed fun, interactive wall. 
See the journey of natural gas unfold in the augmented reality feature.

Get to know what Phase 3 of the Malampaya Gas-to-Power Project is all about and learn some trivia on what makes it extra special as an engineering feat in the country. The redesigned exhibit will take up an expanded space of the "How Things Work"wing, located at the second level of the Mind Museum.
For a more fruitful learning experience, download the free Journey to Malampaya app available in Google Play and iOS Store.
The Malampaya Exhibit first opened to the public in March 2012. Its goal is to inform museum visitors of the process of gathering, transforming, and distributing natural gas, which is a less pollutive alternative resource to coal and oil. The project  showcases the engineering feat conducted in the Malampaya project in Palawan to extract the 2.7 trillion cubic feet of natural gas in the area.

Experience the best interactive and fun way to learn about the Malampaya Exhibit by visiting The Mind Museum. Know more about the innovative engineering feat that powers a good portion of the nation, and discover more about how human ingenuity harnesses natural gas to fuel our daily lives.

I'm a mom of five and I know the feeling of mommy worries if our babies are comfortable wearing them – "iwas lawlaw, iwas palit" and no wet feeling that will not irritate my babies' precious skin. It's been a while since I got a chance to find the right brand and I'm happy to announce that I found the one!

Pampers will make your babies feel comfortable, less "palit", less "lawlaw". With Pampers you can save up to ₱300 which is a big convenience for mommies and babies as well. 2 pampers a day is a big savings for us!
