Biggs opens it's first stand-alone store in Bicol

Our very own Bicolano brand BIGGS just keeps getting bigger, brighter and better as they soft open their 21st branch & 1st stand-alone store strategically located along the National Highway in San Agustin, Pili, #CamSur! The high ceiling inside the store never gets old in fashion as it also gets the rustic, industrial themed and minimalist look on the outside. The vibe at the entirety still gives that #Biggs original Bicolano feels. A mural of the store also showcases the familial love from  #Biggs beautiful founders Nene Bichara, Nienie Buenaflor, and Maricar Manjon. 

Also, look for the portraits near the restroom. It's a nostalgic walkthrough of Biggs iconic stores starting from the old Mang Donald’s up to the radio transistor inspired branch in Magsaysay Avene, Naga. While we celebrate the opening of Biggs Pili San Agustin, we also look forward to many other stand-alone stores here in Bicol in the next months and years to come. 

Through the years Bigg’s has been growing with us literally and figuratively. I can’t wait to see what’s in store as they turn 40 by 2023! Congratulations, Biggs! Dios Mabalos for serving us good food since 1983! 

Media Day

Biggs Pili San Agustin will be operating 24 hours

Bicol Events Suppliers Summit 2022

Couples, families, companies or just anyone who was looking for ideas on how to celebrate milestones went their way to the event center of SM City Naga for the first Bicol Events Suppliers Summit last July 31 to August 6, 2022. More than the exposure of the events suppliers, it was a celebration of artistry and passion in providing Bicolanos  seamless flow of less to worry free events. 

The whole event week was an opportunity for us Bicolanos to meet and see first hand how these suppliers deliver their services plus providing extra promos and discounts when they booked during the exhibit. It was a mix of talented and professional hosts to performers/entertainers, event organizers, couturiers, bar tenders, food suppliers, caterers, hair and makeup artists, grazing table services, invitations, souvenirs, to venues and accommodation, photography and videography studios.

Main exhibitors and other guests were:

The #BESS2022 was beautifully organized by The PREMIUM Events by Paolo Piaรฑa, a Bicolano events management team composed of professionals, seasoned with the culture of passion and commitment, catering premier services for productions and events. Paolo Piaรฑa taking the lead to gather all exhibitors is a testament of friendship and professionalism in their industry. 

As customers, we too, look for suppliers who will match our personalities. All the suppliers might have their similarities but each of them  has their own key on how to work well within the dynamics of their own craft and their clients’ ideas. To each is his/her own yka nga. 

Though limited, it was so nice to personally meet and talk to the suppliers to share some of my thoughts on how to Create Meaningful Online Engagements because we all share the same platform these days in the internet. More than the likes, shares and follows, we give premium to authentic experiences and meaningful online engagement to create a lasting relationship with our clients. 

Thank you, Sir Paolo for giving me the opportunity to witness the passion of your industry, congratulations! And to all the events suppliers, Mabuhay po kamo gabos!

Filinvest Land unveils Naga’s first master-planned condo community Futura Monte

Filinvest Land, one of the country’s largest developers, makes history in Naga by creating Futura Monte – the city’s first master-planned condominium community. This green and sustainable mid-rise community was named ‘Monte’ as an homage to Camarines Sur’s majestic Mt. Isarog. Continuing with its celebration of all things Naga, Filinvest Land unveiled Futura Monte with a beautiful and grand Filipiniana gala event as an homage to the Queen City of Bicol’s warmth and hospitality that’s uniquely its own. 

Futura Monte is Filinvest Land’s first project in the Bicol region. This mid-rise residential enclave from the developer’s smart value Futura by Filinvest brand sits on over 1.2 hectares of land along the highly accessible Roxas Avenue in Brgy. Triangulo. Futura Monte will be home to 4 condominium buildings complemented by generous amenities and lush open spaces. Filinvest Land is investing over Php 1 billion into the first phase of the development. 

“Futura Monte is a testament to Filinvest Land’s vision of building more Filipino dreams across the archipelago. This development will give Bicolanos the unique opportunity to enjoy a green lifestyle amid a master-planned condo community. We also hope to support the region’s continued economic growth through this investment,” said Filinvest Land President Tristan Las Marias.

“We are proud to celebrate this historic milestone for our city with Futura Monte, our very first master-planned condo community. We thank Filinvest Land for keeping the needs of our citizens in mind in creating Futura Monte. It will not only create a real estate investment opportunity for Bicolanos but also provide jobs and spur business activity. We believe in Filinvest Land and its experience and expertise. We look forward to celebrating more milestones with Filinvest Land in the future,” said Naga City Mayor Son Legacion.

Futura Monte is comprised of 4 mid-rise condominium buildings with 60% open spaces

Free to create your own world

Here, residents can thrive in efficient units designed for ease of living. Futura Monte offers a 22-square-meter studio unit ideal for students, young professionals, or newly-weds. Bigger options are also available with 1-bedroom units at 28 square meters or 2-bedroom units at 32 square meters fit for growing families. Investors may also take advantage of the unique condominium living experience that Futura Monte has to offer by choosing to tap the city’s ready rental market and lease units out. 

Fun never stops

Futura Monte features a range of amenities and brings nature’s benefits closer to its residents. Futura Monte’s masterplan boasts of wide, open spaces including landscaped lush greens and green pocket parks. At least 60% of this low-density development is dedicated to open spaces so residents can feel in touch with nature. Futura Monte lets residents relax and bond with their loved ones with lifestyle amenities including a clubhouse, swimming pool, kiddie pool, and fitness gym. These give residents the freedom to embrace a green, healthy lifestyle. Here, they can take a walk, jog, swim, or simply breathe freely.

Futura Monte boasts of generous amenities

Flourish at the center

Filinvest Land strategically positions its developments in key cities and suburban areas. Futura Monte’s location along Roxas Avenue in Naga City enjoys a central location where necessities are within reach. M Plaza and USI Mother Seton Hospital are both just 100 meters away from Futura Monte, while Bicol Medical Center, S&R Naga, Naga Hope Christian School, NICC Doctors Hospital, Our Lady of Immaculate Conception Parish, Ciudad Medical Zamboanga, and Robinsons Mall are all under a kilometer away. Other commercial areas, schools, hospitals, public markets, and the Naga City Hall are also nearby. 

Futura Monte: My home, My Futura

“Monte is Naga. Naga is home. Futura Monte is home. This is what we envision for Futura Monte. It is a home that you, our beloved Bicolanos, and your family, would love to come home to, truly an investment towards a bright future. Whether you are here, abroad, or in other places in the Philippines working, doing your business, traveling for leisure, or maybe saving for your children who will soon be entering the university, Futura Monte will always be your safe space. It is that one place that you call home,” added Filinvest Land First Vice President and Brand and Product Head for Mid-rise Buildings Aven Valderrama.

Futura Monte is designed and crafted with care to give its residents a life connected to nature. It is the ideal home for young professionals looking for independence, starting families seeking for a home to take root in, and those seeking a worthwhile property investment.

It is no wonder that Filinvest Land is a 10-time awardee of BCI Asia’s Top 10 Developers in the Philippines. Futura Monte is part of the developer’s extensive portfolio nationwide with over 280 projects in over 55 key areas.
