Settling down is a matter which concerns almost everyone who wants a build a family. It may sound contradicting but it’s an individual’s continuously growing need that is the root for the desire to settle or choose a lesser costly option (like living with parents or renting space). Some may say that investing in a house is a better idea than renting an apartment or a condo in the residences at greenbelt, for instance.
How about you? Do you mind living in your so-called own home or would you rather spend a little more time renting a condo in the residences at Greenbelt, or anywhere in Makati (the Metro’s center of luxury)?
Living in a house and living in a condo are two different things, but they share one purpose. A house of your own and a condo unit for rent are both physical structures where you could settle down, and they both have their own advantages and disadvantages (that always depend on your current situation).
Having a house of your own means you have all the authority, as well as the responsibility, of all the things inside your house. You want to paint your door blue, no one will tell you otherwise. You want to fence your backyard, you have all the authority. You could easily make adjustments in your own house’s rooms. You could literally make it your own little world. But as well as the prime authority you have, the responsibility of taking care of your house basically lies on your shoulder. This responsibility includes paying the mortgage, and as well as saving enough money for upfront costs such as the deposit and legal fees and ongoing costs including maintenance and insurance costs.
In addition, you have the freedom to choose a community to live in, thus, you take the responsibility to check on the community’s proximity and accessibility to work, school, and market.
On the other hand, living in a condo unit for rent in the residences at Greenbelt, Malate, or Quezon City opens opportunities for career growth and development. While you have your own unit, you aren’t allowed to do great changes to your unit’s design since it may affect other units. However, you have the access to the condominium’s amenities and other great features. Since, a lot of career opportunities are around Metro Manila, a condo unit for rent in the residences at Greenbelt is a good location to be in the center of Makati especially for young bachelors making a living for their future family. You also don’t need to worry too much about safety because there is strict security inside condominiums.
However, whatever you choose should always reflect or at least go well with your emotional, mental and financial situation. Owning your own home and renting a condo unit could be both be good places to settle down; perspective is everything.
Identity, indeed, is important to any organization. A corporate uniform is one of its embodying elements in the Philippines. That’s why choosing a supplier for your company’s corporate uniform is like choosing whom to handle your identity.
Well, of the hundreds of possible corporate uniform supplier in the Philippines, there are a set of standards you need to keep in mind when designing both aesthetics and functions of a uniform.
Teamwork. Since, corporate uniforms, one way or another, becomes the company’s “physical identity”, it is good to cultivate cooperation with your chosen corporate uniform supplier in the Philippines. Do not forget that it isn’t just the design lay-out or the kind of thread used that is really important. Work with a team or supplier who’s able to cut down a piece of cloth tailoring your company’s custom needs. Each color and seam could subtly (but delicately) affect company’s image. How? Well, if you have overlooked the making of your company’s corporate uniform and wasn’t able to check the end-product’s unity with your company’s goal and vision (plus, its similarity and difference to other company’s) you might end up with something generic that no one can really tell apart from others.
So, it would be better to pick a corporate uniform supplier who is willing to work hand-in-hand in your company’s team. Keeping this in mind would keep you way closer to the right supplier in the Philippines.
Drive and passion. Working for a company’s veracity, goals and visions for a couple of years is a trait of employees that must be retained. Your company’s high regard for quality of work could be reflected on the quality of your corporate uniforms. So, pay attention on the suppliers’ passion in doing their job. Find a supplier whose passion for the craft is the same as yours. As the corporate uniform serves as the physical component in the company’s identity, a lot of hard work lies behind its making and its meaning. Choosing a corporate uniform supplier who’s driven enough to finish each uniform (from the start until the last piece) with the same and best quality reflects on both how people see the company and how employees see themselves.
Wondering how you would learn these things from your supplier’s end? Check on the smallest commitments they have. It starts from how they would answer your questions as a client. It then streams down to the supplier’s ability to make your company’s idea into something real and tangent, in the form of a corporate uniform.
Corporate uniform draws character to the individual wearing it. How individuality is asserted by the person wearing the corporate uniform is something that sets their differences. For a company searching for a corporate uniform supplier in the Philippines, it is good to keep a set of standards for these will make employees more imbibing of the corporate uniform’s meaning and ultimately, of the company’s mission and goals.

Many are competing to be hailed as the best golf course in the Philippines. The current number of courses in the Philippines is over 90 based on the list posted by worldgolf.com. To get you started, philippines-travel-guide.com provided a brief list of courses you can try like the Sherwood Hills Golf Club in Trece Martires, Cavite; Camp John Hay Golf Course in Baguio; or the Fairways & Bluewater Golf Resort Boracay. Yet no matter how many golf courses have been built, only a select few could afford this kind of sport.
What is with golf that people are willing to spend money on it? Is it because of its laid-back nature of playing? Is it the feeling of pomposity and grandeur a golfer experiences while walking on lush green fields? Maybe because of its tranquil and peaceful environment which is a far cry from the humdrum of the corporate scene?
Surprisingly, even though it may cost you several thousands of pesos, golf has loads of benefits that any best golf course in the Philippines could offer. Just like any sport, playing golf has mental and physical benefits as enumerated below.
Strengthens muscle and endurance
You may never notice but during a friendly bout of golf with your peers you’ve already covered three to four miles while transferring from one hole to another. Keep this up and you could improve muscle tone and endurance by simply walking on a course with different terrains.
Walking is the simplest and easiest form of exercise. But playing golf is more than walking in green fairways. According to an article in huffingtonpost.com, golfing in an 18-hole course while carrying your own bag burns 721; using a pull cart burns 718; with a caddy burns 613; and riding in a cart burns 411 calories.
Why is golf a perfect stress-buster? Maybe it has something to do with the greenery. Sensationalcolor.com says the color green “is calming, stress-relieving, and invigorating.” Furthermore, it is the color of balance and harmony and can, therefore, be helpful in times of stress, as stated by colourtherapyhealing.com. This is simply by looking at the different shades of green of the best golf courses in the Philippines. Other than blue, green is the second coolest color.
Socialization and networking
Golf can be a friendly or competitive sport. Instead of bonding over caffeinated drinks or going to cafes with your colleagues, a golf course sets a neutral ground to relax and unwind. You will not only catch up with your friends but you could stretch your muscles as well. This is also a chance to meet top executives or influential people who spends their free time playing golf. It is an avenue to expand your network all in the name of good company and good game.
Improves concentration and focus
In a world where we are constantly interrupted by incessant notifications from the various social media sites we’ve signed up to, concentration or the ability to focus on one task is getting more difficult. Through golf, focus and concentration could be regained. Golflink.com states that golfers have to learn how to focus on the shot and concentrate on the fundamentals of their swing, or else, they won’t be able to play successfully.
Low risk of injury
Golf is one of the sports with the lowest rates of injuries. It is a perfect pastime for the elderly because it is a non-strenuous activity. Moreover, it is a non-contact sport and doesn’t have to use so much force or strength. However, don’t forget to do warm-ups or stretches on your back shoulders and arms before playing, Better Health Channel advises.
It is not as simple as swinging the club and hitting the ball. You need to carefully analyze the distance of the hole, the alignment, the direction of the wind, the elevation of the course and other things a golfer must consider to score a birdie. According to Brian Short, a golf instructor at Penn State University, says in an article on college.usatoday.com, golf is “… about patience. It’s one of the games you can never perfect.” Accuracy is a must.
Living in a city where you wouldn’t mind the high electricity cost of air conditioning is, in a word, cool, right? Plus, the natural mountain breeze blowing right at the door step is simply a great resolution to every irritating situation after a long day. And oh, did I already mention about the colorful culture and the cost-effective houses and condominiums for sale in Baguio?
Well, Baguio is not the country’s summer capital for nothing. Far beyond being one of the coolest places in the Philippines, the mountain city offers more than just a nice climate. While we have learned about the humble little treasures in Baguio from the previous article, let’s go deeper down to its colorful tradition.
So, go out of the corners of your chosen Baguio condominium for sale and explore the beauty residing in the city’s diverse culture and tradition.
Do you find yourself smiling whenever you see a bunch of beautiful flowers? Well, Baguio is a great place to appreciate these little pieces of treasures. When you are staying at one of the beautiful condominiums for sale in Baguio, it is with no doubt that you have at least seen few of the prettiest flowers strewn across the whole city. But it doesn’t stop there; celebrating Baguio’s Flower Festival is as easy as taking a peek outside your Baguio home. It was in 1996 that Panagbenga Festival started. Baguio was actually regaining itself from the 1990 7.7 magnitude earthquake that devastated the city. Since tourism is one of the main sources of living in the city, economic stability has also been shaken as an aftermath of the earthquake.
Though rattled, the earthquake wasn’t able to totally break the hope lying within the hearts of the people of Baguio. It was Atty. Damaso E. Bangaoet Jr. that envisioned Panagbenga Festival with the purpose of cultivating hope that the city will eventually regain its beauty. Panagbenga is a Kankana-ey word which means “season of blooming”. Panagbenga Festival is a month-long celebration that occurs every February. It is a colorful festival that showcases ornamental products of the province. Colorful floats made from flowers are paraded on the streets together with the highly energetic street dancers and drum and lyre bands. For almost 20 years today, Panagbenga Festival remains one of the most celebrated festivals in the city that attracts not only the locals to join but charms people from all over the world. Panagbenga Festival truly is a season of blooming, not only for the different kinds of flowers you may find in the Benguet province but reminds everyone that the seed of harvest is planted deep within the heart of its gardeners.
And this sets Baguio apart from other places. Aside from being a truly cool place to live (in terms of climate), there are also a lot of awesome activities to enjoy in the mountainous city. Those who would like to enjoy nature could paddle away at the rented boats in Burnham Park, or have the classic horseback riding experience at Wright Park. If you want some Baguio in you, immerse yourself into the culture and tradition of the ethnic tribes; the backbone of Baguio.
All of these are but some of the proofs that Baguio is a place like no other. Of all the possible worthy experience, an investment on a property or condominium for sale in Baguio isn’t something that is wasted. And for me, I can’t wait to see Baguio again!
I love life and all things about it! How about you?
