As published in Philippine Daily Inquirer on September 18, 2015

 

681Metro Manila’s current urban sprawl may be expansive and busy but it does bring with it a host of advantages unmatched in other localities. Everything you need ­ hospitals, schools, supermarkets, offices, and shops ­ are within easy reach. There is a sense of security given how close 24/7 buildings and,establishments (complete with on­duty guards) are to each other. Options for entertainment and leisure of every persuasion are nearly limitless. Opportunities to succeed ­ however you define success ­ and learn are there for the taking. The metropolis remains a smart choice of residence as proven by the more than 30 million people who opt to work and play here.

The key to enjoying this ease is having a restorative place to come home to when the congestion and . pace that can come with progress and innovation start to become too much, an energy­giving sanctuary that primes you and your loved ones for the days to come. On the surface, it would seem that such a place can only exist outside greater Manila or will take a time­traveling capsule to experience. A closer inspection, fortunately, will reveal that it is possible right here, right now.
