Compared to many other countries, Christmas in the Philippines is usually one of the longest and most colourful, with celebrations starting as soon as the so-called ‘ber months arrive and lasting until January the following year. It’s also during this time when houses get adorned with Christmas lights and children start singing Christmas carols. Many Filipino homes also hold reunions to welcome back family members who have been working abroad for a long time.
While it is relatively easier to hold such family occasions in restaurants, a lot of Filipinos have since made it a matter of personal choice to celebrate inside their homes to ensure better privacy and make the gathering a truly memorable one. One such place that is fast emerging to be a favourite party venue for condo dwellers is The Magnolia Residences in New Manila, Quezon City.
With its multi-purpose rooms, The Magnolia Residences actually provides an accessible venue for parties. Christmas is also a very busy season and most people usually find it difficult to book first-rate party venues. But as a unit owner here, that won’t be a problem anymore because there are function rooms at The Magnolia Residences – including the sun deck function area – that you and your guests can use for such purpose. Feel free to throw the glitziest Yuletide bash of the year, or dress up your best when you attend one of the neighbor’s major festivities.
If you prefer intimate gatherings, the barbeque pit and gazebo of The Magnolia Residences are great places to bond with families and friends. Your guests will particularly delight in the spectacular view from the top. These al fresco venues are conducive for reminiscing good times over cold beer and juicy burgers. To make the occasion more special, you can entertain everyone with holiday-themed parlor games.
Throwing a party, whether big or small, requires some effort. If you’d rather spend the holidays relaxing with some friends, then the condominium’s pool area and game room are perfect for some good old barkada fun and holiday frolic.
Christmas is also the time when moms bring out their special holiday recipes. These delectable but calorie-laden spread can mess up with your ideal weight. Keep yourself and your loved ones fit by spending some time at The Magnolia Residences’ own badminton court and its well-equipped fitness center to make up for the occasional indulgences. When you come back to work after the holidays, your colleagues will wonder how you managed to fit in that tight dress. For kids, the Christmas season brings a couple of weeks off from school, which means more time for outdoor playground where they can also hold their own mini parties and exchange gifts.
During the holidays, more people flock to the malls to shop, meet friends over dinner or take advantage of special sales. With Robinsons Magnolia mall just a few steps away from The Magnolia Residences, shopping and buying gifts inside the mall becomes a more pleasurable experience since you get spared from the onslaught of Christmas traffic or that dreaded overcrowded bus or train. Robinsons Magnolia is a lifestyle mall featuring an impressive array of locators that satisfy the needs and wants of every customer. It also houses a department store, supermarket, state-of-the-art movie theatres and specialty stores and restaurants.
To offer added fun and excitement for mall goers, particularly the kids and the young-at-heart, a giant Christmas tree was recently unveiled at the mall’s atrium. The lighting of the giant Christmas tree, which is an annual tradition, was made with no less than Ms. Kuh Ledesma and the Manila Philharmonic Orchestra serenading the crowd with Christmas carols while Ms. Arlene Magtibay, the mall’s general manager, lead the ceremonial tree-lighting ceremonies.
