How to be a Responsible Pet Owners During Typhoon? We’ll Make Sure Our Pets Stay Safe!

Typhoons bring a lot of destruction to many families and burden them with losses they never thought they’d have. But typhoons aren’t only dangerous during the rainy season — they can also strike even when we least expect them! As such, we must be prepared and protect ourselves and our pets from these natural disasters that could strike at any time.

It is also important to take note that you have pets who need to be protected during these times as well. In this discussion, we will give and elaborate on some tips on how to prepare yourself and your pet for typhoon season so that they stay safe during storms.

Prepare your pet emergency kit.

When typhoons hit, there is a great tendency for people to worry about their homes and possessions. But there isn’t much thought about the safety of your pets. Prepare for your pet’s safety by getting a pet carrier, leash, collar, and ID tag; food and water for at least three days; medication; other items your pet needs — toys, bedding, and medication for fleas or ticks — depending on the situation. It’s also smart to have a microchip implanted in your pet. Keep the information up-to-date and make sure it’s registered with the company that issued it.

Pet carrier

We’ve all seen the image of a panicked pet being carried out of a home in the aftermath of a natural disaster. That’s why it’s essential to have your own pet carrier so you can get them safely out of harm’s way.

Preparing for an emergency takes time, but if you start now, you’ll be prepared when the next typhoon hits. You can begin by visiting your local humane society or animal shelter to find out what pets need during disasters and how they should be transported. Find out where you can obtain a carrier for your pet as well—you may need to order one online if there aren’t any carriers available at your local store.

No animals should be left behind.

There is no question that typhoons can be scary events with plenty of damage to go around. However, they can also be opportunities to show how much we love and care for our pets.

Make sure to keep your pets at home, as they should not be left behind. If you are concerned about them in the elements, consider bringing them to a shelter or boarding facility. Most shelters have staff and volunteers who will watch over animals until their owners can pick them up again.

If you choose to stay with a family member or a friend during a typhoon, make sure that this person agrees beforehand to care for any animals that come with you. Please tag along with your pets and not leave your pets alone in a car or cage outside when there’s lightning—even if it’s just for a few minutes! If the situation is dire enough that evacuation is necessary, don’t bring along any cages or other cumbersome objects—bring what you need; leaving extra baggage behind could put everyone at risk and take valuable time away from getting out safely.

Also, remember never under any circumstances abandon an animal by dumping him off somewhere else, as well as not letting him run around loose after evacuating. It will likely cause damage/injury due to shock caused by unfamiliarity with surroundings which include objects like trees & bushes, causing injury or even death due to loss of balance resulting from running into them head first because he wasn’t used to being outdoors before so, therefore, may behave erratically especially since he doesn’t know where exactly his owner might be located so instead try keeping him indoors where he’ll feel safe while waiting patiently until someone arrives.

Also, watch out for stray animals and abandoned pets in the wake of a typhoon. If you see any, please help them! However, be careful: You might want to make sure an animal is not rabid before approaching it. Also, remember that sometimes a mother will lash out at you if you get too close to her children.

Be prepared and ensure their safety.

Ensure your animals are in a safe place when typhoons come. These are some certain precautions you can take:

  • Plan ahead: The first step is making sure that you have a plan for where to go if there is an emergency and also where they would be taken if there is an emergency. A good place might be their regular vet clinic or kennel, but it may also be advisable to have a second location closer by in case of traffic jams or other issues on the way home from work that could delay getting them there in time.
  • Bring inside before the storm arrives: Even if it looks like the weather will stay clear throughout the day, bringing pets inside before a storm arrives will give them more time to adjust and reduces stress on everyone involved as well as being safer overall since any flying debris (like tree branches) or flooding risk would be lessened.

As you can see, keeping our pets safe in the event of a typhoon is not an easy task. The best thing to do is to be prepared and take all the necessary precautions to ensure their safety, especially if there will be no one else around to help them. But overall, there’s plenty of advice and information available that can help you prepare for a typhoon and keep your pets safe. 

In the end, we hope that this article was able to help you come up with a few good strategies to ensure your pets’ safety in the event of a typhoon. After all, a lot of pets are directly dependent on us for their safety, and it is the pet owner’s responsibility to make sure that we do what we can to keep them protected. As always, we would appreciate any comments or suggestions that you might have!

As a pet lover, you already know that you would do just about anything for your pets. You bring them to work to show off, sport their Instagram pictures on your feed, post videos of them in the park and let them sleep with the kids. That’s why it is also essential to choose a residence with a pet-friendly community, just like Lumina Homes!

Lumina Homes is a house and lot developer with functional amenities where you can bond with your pets while practicing your role as a responsible pet owner. Lumina communities are located in flood-free areas that are safe and secure, which will ease your worries about upcoming typhoons!

How to Ensure a Property is Legitimate: Document Checklist

You might have heard that not all properties are what they seem. That’s why it’s vital to get the facts upfront before you buy a house and lot or lots only . A property’s legitimacy is determined by the law and can be checked with the use of clear and valid documentation.

To be considered legitimate, a property must have a conversational contract or a statement from a reliable source that is acceptable under the law. Legitimacy is fundamental when buying or investing in real estate because many people invest in properties that are not legally owned.

So if you ask, “Is there a document checklist I can follow to ensure that the property I am buying is legitimate?” Here it goes! Use this checklist to ensure everything is up-to-date and precise:

1. Certified True Copy of Title

If you’re buying a property, you should get a Certified True Copy of the Title.

The document shows the history of ownership of the property and is available to buyers before they sign a contract. It should be certified by the Land Registration Authority.

2. Property Tax Details

When looking at a property, it is essential to obtain property tax details. The following are documents that you should look for when searching for these details:

  • Certified True Copy of Title (CTC)
  • Tax Declaration (TD)
  • Tax Clearance Certificate (TCC)

These documents will help you identify if there are any outstanding taxes due on the property and will also provide an idea of how much those taxes may be. Once you have obtained these documents, it is important to compare them with the information in the listing. Suppose there are any discrepancies between what was entered into the listing and what appears on these documents. In that case, this could be considered fraud or misrepresentation by either party involved—the seller or broker—and may result in legal action against them by their client(s).

3. Physical Survey and Right of Way

A physical survey is a detailed map of the property. It shows the location of all the structures, boundaries of the property, fences, as well as any easements or rights of way. This is to ensure the access road going to the subject property. 

It also shows the location of all utility lines. A property without a physical survey could be at risk if there are unexpected problems with nearby properties or development plans that could affect it in some way. For example, an underground gas line may cut through your land unexpectedly if you do not have an up-to-date plan from when you bought it. Or a government project is on its way to development like barangay roads or transportation facilities.

For some properties, there are also NPC lines, creeks, protected areas, or irrigation within the vicinity, and there are equivalent needs on how you should plan the development in these situations.

4. Encumbrance Certificate

If you are buying a property, an encumbrance certificate is one document that should be reviewed to ensure your purchase is legitimate. An encumbrance refers to any legal claim on a property. For example, if the former owners of the property owed money on their mortgage and were unable to pay it off before selling their home, they may have left behind an outstanding lien against the house. The existence of this type of lien would be known only through a review of public records regarding your potential new home’s title history at the municipal trial court or land registry office.

If such liens exist in your area, they will be reflected in an encumbrance certificate issued by local authorities who oversee real estate transactions and updated when necessary as properties change hands through sale or foreclosure auctions. You can get these certificates from any government entity responsible for enforcing them; make sure that whoever issues one has access to all relevant sales data so they can give accurate information about whether there are actually any claims against your prospective purchase before closing contracts with other parties involved in making this transaction possible (like attorneys).

5. Construction approvals

Construction approvals are required for most building projects to ensure that they meet the relevant standards and other requirements. Their aim is to ensure the final product or house construction is safe and meets structural integrity.

6. Conversion and land-use permissions

Last but not least, you must check to see if any government approvals or restrictions have been issued for the property. The local planning authority should have a record of any applications submitted and their outcome. Check also for any easements or encumbrances on the land (for example, rights of way), as well as adverse possession claims by tenants or squatters.

If you are done completing the information of the above-stated details, you can already make sure you’re in good hands.

Importance of due diligence

Property investments are highly capital intensive, making it imperative for a buyer to examine the property documents with due caution. This checklist will make that process simple and easy.

It’s important to know what you’re buying and selling. It’s also essential to learn to who you’re selling it. This is because the due diligence process helps protect you as a buyer or seller, and it’s not a waste of time.

Due diligence protects both buyers and sellers by ensuring that they are entering into a legitimate transaction with someone they trust and can rely on. By learning about the property before purchasing or selling it, both parties have an idea of what they have agreed to in their contract.

For investors and developers alike, it’s important to know that all the paperwork related to a property is in order. This checklist will help you avoid buying anything less than legitimate.

How To Create A Home Office Where You Can Actually Work

Working from home is a great way to set your own hours, save on transportation costs, and feel more productive. But it can also be hard to stay focused when there are so many distractions at home. If you’re trying to create a separate space for work in your house, here are some tips for setting up an efficient and productive workspace:

Create a dedicated space.

You need a dedicated space to work effectively from home, which is crucial for your productivity. A dedicated area will help you avoid distractions and keep your focus on the task at hand. Here are some ideas for creating a dedicated home office:

  • Create a space that’s free of clutter, so you don’t have to worry about piles of mail and magazines getting in the way.
  • Make sure the home office is free of distractions, such as televisions or pets—if you live with other people who like to watch TV together in the evening, consider setting up a separate area where everyone can set up their own computer screen (and maybe even get some privacy).
  • And finally, try not to let family members use this room during working hours; if they have time during those hours when they want companionship or TV-watching time, try finding another part of the house where they can do it without interrupting your concentration too much!

Keep your space tidy.

A neat and organized home office is essential for staying productive. When you have a messy desk, it’s easy to lose track of files and papers, which leads to stress and distraction when you have to look for them later on. You should also avoid keeping too many personal items in your workspace; if you can’t find a specific item when needed, this will add stress as well. To keep things organized at all times:

  • Clean up after yourself often—ideally once a day or so—so that there are no piles of paperwork or other materials cluttering up the room
  • Use bins or folders to organize your work materials, so they are easy to sort through when needed (for example, office supplies in one bin/folder; project files in another)

Brighten up your workspace.

In addition to getting enough natural light, you can also brighten up your home office with artificial light sources. Use lamps that have dimmers and use them to create a mood for working or reading in the evening (or late afternoon if you’re more of a night owl). A lampshade will help keep the light from being too bright for reading, especially if it’s placed behind or beside you on your desk instead of overhead.

Choose a comfortable chair.

Choosing the right chair is essential when it comes to creating a comfortable working environment. There are various types of chairs available, and they all have their own pros and cons. However, there are criteria that you should look for in any chair that you choose.

First, make sure that the back of your chair can be adjusted as needed, so it fits you perfectly. This is important because if your chair isn’t adjustable, sitting for long periods of time could cause discomfort or even pain in your back! Second, make sure that your seat itself can also be adjusted so it fits well with your body type, as well as being able to support both feet flat on the floor while typing (if applicable). Thirdly, if possible, try out any new chairs before buying one, so they feel right when using them at home too!

Look for a desk that fits your space and needs.

If you’re looking for a desk, there are a few things to consider.

First, decide about the size of the desk. If you need space for two monitors and extra storage, then a large desk is probably best. On the other hand, if your home office is small or crowded with furniture (like mine), getting something that fits in with the rest of your space might be more important than having extra room to spread out.

Next up: height. Having an adjustable-height desk can be extremely helpful if you work at different heights throughout the day and avoid back pain by being able to sit higher when working on projects that don’t require as much attention to detail—and then lower when it comes time for more intricate tasks like writing emails or responding to client requests!

Plan ahead and create a daily routine.

There are a few key points you can make to set yourself up for success in the morning. The best way to make sure your day is productive, organized, and enjoyable is by planning ahead.

Plan your day the night before. Write everything you need to prioritize and get done. Estimate how much time it will take. So that when you wake up tomorrow, it’s all there waiting for you on paper. This should also include any meetings or appointments that day (even if they’re not work-related).

Personalize your home office.

As you’ve probably gathered, your home office is a place where you’ll be spending a lot of time. To make the most of it and give yourself the best possible environment to get work done, it’s important that your space feels like an inviting and inspiring place for you. To do this, try using some personal touches in your home office.

Use your favorite colors as inspiration for decorating or painting the walls.

If you’re into music, add some instruments or decorations that reflect what inspires you musically.

You could also hang up photos from family vacations, or other memories that remind you why working from home is so great!

Take regular breaks.

Set a timer for every 90 minutes. Get up, walk around and stretch, even just for 5 minutes. Take a short walk outside if you can; this will help you get some fresh air and sunlight, which are both good for you. If not, try to find some other way to move around more often throughout the day or exercise.

Lastly, nap at least once during the day—for 10-20 minutes is good enough! A nap can help refresh your brain from fatigue and make it easier to focus when it’s time to work again.

Establish a good work and life balance.

The best thing to remember: working from home is not an excuse to neglect your personal life. Setting aside time for family and friends is essential, as is making sure you have breaks from work. Make sure you also get enough sleep and don’t overwork yourself (or underwork yourself). If you’re sick, take the day off!

It pays to have a separate space for work so you can focus on your tasks without getting distracted by the goings on at home.

To be able to focus on your work, it is essential to create a separate space for yourself. With this in mind, you will be able to stay focused on the tasks at hand without being distracted by other goings-on at home. By creating a sense of privacy and getting away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, you can help yourself avoid distractions and create a more productive space.

By following these tips, you can create a productive home office that helps you get the job done — and still be able to enjoy your free time. The key is to create a space that works for you. For example, if working in pajamas makes it easier, then, by all means, do so! Just don’t forget about taking breaks and planning so that your day isn’t spent on distractions from outside disruptions or from a lack of planning ahead. Use the tips above to create an efficient home office today!

Desk Accessories for Every Work-From-Home Setup, Plus the One You Need Most!

There are plenty of ways to work from home, but freelance is most suitable for millennials. It allows you to work in pajamas, with no commute and few restrictions on when you start or stop working. That’s why ensuring your workspace is comfortable and has everything you need to be productive at home is essential. We rounded up some of the squad’s favorite desk accessories to help take your freelancing setup from a space-stealing (and messy) laptop and papers on the floor to a functional and organized workspace where you produce the best work possible!

Monitor Riser

Monitor risers help you position your monitor at a better height. While these are often used to make monitors more ergonomic, they can also be used to create a dual-monitor setup. Monitor risers are also great for raising laptop screens, which is handy for people who like to work on laptops while sitting on the couch or bed.

Adjustable Aluminum Laptop Stand

A laptop stand is a must-have accessory if you’re working in bed or on the couch. This one is adjustable to any height, so you can use it comfortably whether you’re sitting down or standing up. It’s also lightweight and portable, so it’s easy to take with you if ever your laptop needs an occasional boost while at home alone.

The rubber base helps ensure that the adjustable aluminum laptop stand won’t slip around on your desk while typing away at work (or watching Netflix). The non-slip surface on top of this computer accessory means your device won’t slide off either—giving both peace of mind and a clear view!

And with an anti-static design, there’s no need for worry when using this adjustable aluminum laptop stand near other electronics like smartphones or tablet computers: it will not cause damage by interfering with their functionality nor interfere in any way with their operation.

USB Hub

A USB hub allows you to connect multiple devices to your computer. When using this type of hardware, don’t forget that it can also be used as a charging station for your mobile devices—like a smartphone or tablet—so you can charge them at the same time as the other accessories in your work-from-home setup.

And if you’re looking for power sources, USB hubs have got those, too! You may even find that some include outlets so you can plug in an AC adapter and charge two devices at once.

Transparent Memo Board

The Transparent Memo Board is a versatile writing surface that’s great for reminders, notes, and more. It’s also a dry-erase board so that you can use it as a whiteboard. Or hang your favorite photos or artwork on the Transparent Memo Board for a unique display.

Cable Clips

With the help of these items, these are great ways to keep your desk tidy. They’re also helpful for keeping cables out of sight and preventing them from getting tangled with one another.

To organize your cables with the use of cable clips, these handy little accessories can be used in different ways, depending on your needs:

  • Use them to secure loose wires under desks or behind furniture so they stay out of sight but are accessible when needed (i.e., if you need access to an outlet behind a chair).
  • Use them as cable organizers on the backside of shelves or furniture where no one will see them but where they’ll still be able to hold everything together in place—especially useful if you have multiple cords that are difficult to manage because they’re constantly moving around while plugged into different devices!

WiFi Extender

If you want a faster and broader range of your internet connection, a WiFi extender or repeater will do the trick. It’s like an antenna for your router, amplifying its signal and boosting it out into areas of your home where there aren’t enough hotspots to go around.

Extenders come in two flavors: powerline adapters (which plug directly into an electrical socket) and WiFi repeaters (which connect wirelessly). Powerline adapters are more reliable and offer faster speeds than repeaters, but they’re also more expensive—and because they don’t transmit WiFi signals through walls as well as repeaters do, this means using them in larger homes may mean that some rooms won’t be able to join the party.

If you’re looking for something small enough so everyone can use their devices without any hiccups while streaming Netflix or gaming online with friends.

Headphone Stand

If you use a lot of headphones, or if you’ve got a friend who shares your desk and needs to keep their headphones out of the way, this is a great project.

A headphone stand is one of the most cost-effective and space-efficient ways to improve the look and feel of your desk. It can declutter your space, making it easier for you to stay organized and productive.

Leather Laptop Mat

You can use a laptop mat to keep your computer from overheating, but it also helps protect it from scratches. A good laptop mat will keep the laptop on the desk and prevent it from sliding around while you’re typing. The best ones come with a non-slip backing and can be cleaned with a damp cloth.

This list of desk accessories will help you make your home office more organized and comfortable.

If you are on a WFH setup, it’s essential to have a workspace that is comfortable and organized. A clean space will make you stay focused, while an ergonomic arrangement can prevent fatigue and injuries. The right accessories can make your office feel like a cozy oasis—or, failing that, at least less of a disaster zone.

It’s essential to set up an office that is not just livable but conducive to working at home. These desk accessories will help you stay on track while still keeping a homey vibe. Hopefully, they’ll help you overcome any obstacles of working from home and allow you to focus on the task at hand. 

All you have to need is to pick out a few accessories from this list, and you’ll be comfortable and productive work-from-home setup. Before you know it, you’ll be spending less time at the office and enjoying more of life.

Working from home can also be more motivating if you reside in a community close to essential places like grocery stores, one-stop home needs shops, shopping malls, schools, and hospitals. And would you believe that an affordable house and lot for sale developer called Lumina Homes are precisely what I mentioned above? Yes! Owning a home with good internet connectivity also fits this real estate developer, the core need of every work-from-home Filipino!

Meanwhile, these desk accessories will help you make the most of your home office and stay productive. Whether it’s keeping your cables organized or creating an ergonomic workspace, there’s something on this list for you!

Squad Goals: Plan Your 2023 Vacation Ahead

Holidays in the Philippines are great. The country has lots of them, and you can celebrate them every day if you want to. But it’s also a good idea to have some time off from work or school and travel around the country. If you want to do this, here are some holidays in the Philippines for 2023 that you might want to consider when planning a vacation:

New Year’s Day (January 1, Sunday)

New Year’s Day is celebrated in the Philippines on January 1. It’s traditionally a day to gather with family and friends and enjoy the company of those you love. 

It’s a time when people celebrate new beginnings and resolutions for the year ahead. In the Philippines, many people celebrate by eating traditional Filipino dishes like adobo, pancit, sinigang, and lumpia.

Other people will visit a church to pray for their loved ones’ health and prosperity throughout 2023. Some people also have parties where they play card games like bingo or poker with their families and friends. In addition to celebrating at home or church, some Filipinos visit local cultural centers like museums or art galleries on this day!

Chinese New Year (January 22, Sunday)

Chinese New Year in Chinese culture is the most important holiday. It is a time of family reunions, celebration, and happiness. Like most other holidays, this celebration involves giving and receiving gifts to loved ones and friends. If you’re visiting Manila during Chinese New Year, be sure to take advantage of all that this bustling city has to offer: you’ll find plenty of delicious food carts selling hot noodles and other traditional dishes; celebrations in Chinatown (the district where many ethnic Chinese people live); parades with dancers dressed in elaborate costumes; fireworks displays; dragon dances; food fairs at malls.

People Power Anniversary (February 25, Saturday)

February 25 is the date of People Power, a national holiday commemorating the 1986 people power revolution. The celebrations for this occasion are typically held at EDSA Shrine (Epifanio de los Santos Avenue), where all significant events took place during those days.

Maundy Thursday (April 6, Thursday)

Maundy Thursday is the day before Good Friday, which is the day that Jesus died on the cross. Holy Thursday marks the end of Lent. Jesus celebrated Last Supper with his disciples and instituted Eucharist on this day. Maundy Thursday commemorates these two important events in Christianity.

On this day, you can attend church services or attend a Catholic Mass at any church in your area. Visita Iglesia is where you can learn about different church history while praying the rosary.

Good Friday (April 7, Friday)

Good Friday commemorates Jesus Christ’s crucifixion. It is observed during Holy Week, the week leading up to Easter Sunday. Good Friday falls on April 7 in 2023, and it will be a holiday in the country, where more than 85% of people are Roman Catholic.

Black Saturday (April 8, Saturday)

Holy Saturday marks the day before Easter Sunday, which is also known as Resurrection Day or Easter.

The Holy Saturday is also referred to as the Great Sabbath or Last Sabbath. It is believed that Jesus Christ was buried on this day and rose again on Sunday, making it one of Christianity’s most important days. On this day, Christians remember the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Many churches worldwide celebrate Masses on this particular day to commemorate it as a holy feast day.

Easter Sunday and Day of Valor (April 9, Sunday)

Easter Sunday is indeed the most important day of the Christian liturgical year.

The name “Easter” comes from Eostre, an Anglo-Saxon goddess associated with springtime festivals and fertility; her festival was celebrated around April 6. Some scholars believe that Christians adopted this date for their own celebration and incorporated some elements from pagan ceremonies into their rituals, such as egg decorating — but others think Easter may have been chosen simply because it was convenient for everyone involved!

Easter eggs are a tradition dating back to ancient times when people would dye their eggs red in honor of Springtime festivities. This custom has evolved into giving candy and other treats inside hollowed-out eggs decorated with intricate designs made by hand or machine (or even 3D printed!).

Every April 9, the Philippines observes the Day of Valor, commemorating the fall of the Bataan peninsula during World War II.

Eid Ul Fitr (April 22, Saturday)

Eidul Fitr is a significant event for Filipino Muslims because it marks the end of the month-long Ramadan fast. President Duterte has signed Proclamation No. 944, which establishes the said holiday across the country.

Labor Day (May 1, Monday)

It marks the day when working people across the country celebrate their contributions to society and acknowledge those who dedicated their lives to making our world a better place.

The Philippines’ version of Labor Day is called “Makabuhay” (which is Tagalog for “livelihood”). This holiday commemorates Filipino workers, who are considered some of the hardest workers in Asia.

In addition to its historical significance, Makabuhay also serves as an opportunity for Filipinos across generations and industries to reconnect over important themes like family values while also highlighting some of their most beloved traditions such as barbecues or backyard parties where families get together just so everyone can eat good food together!

Independence Day (June 12, Monday)

Every year, Filipinos all over the country honor their flag with parades and ceremonies celebrating its creation by Jose Rizal, who designed it based on his vision for the independent Philippines (then known as “Las Islas Filipinas”). The colors blue, red, white, and yellow were chosen because they represented hope, courage; purity; virtue, loyalty; justice; charity; faithfulness. Respectively, according to Rizal’s writings about his design later became known as La Bandera Filipina or simply Filipino flag.

Christmas Eve (December 25, Monday)

Christmas Eve is a holiday in the Philippines. You’ll have to observe a few things on this day:

  • Christmas Eve is the last day of Christmas shopping. There are still gifts to buy!
  • It’s also the time for giving out presents to friends and family. I

So if you don’t want to be left out of all that merrymaking, get your shopping done early so you can spend some time making merry with your loved ones on Christmas Eve!

Know what holidays are coming up so that you can plan ahead.

Planning can save you money. If you’re traveling to the Philippines, it’s a good idea to know what holidays are coming up to plan. You may want to take advantage of lower rates or better deals at hotels and restaurants during those times, and if you’re staying in a hotel with regular rates, booking early will let them know how much space they need each day.

Planning ahead also saves time. If your plans include visiting other countries on your trip, knowing when holidays fall will help ensure that there aren’t any delays or disturbances in service due to worker strikes or general transportation issues (like traffic jams).

If something unexpected comes up while attending one of these events (like getting sick), having a backup plan is important—so consider booking activities like tours or excursions in advance!

Why is Las Piñas called the City of Love and Progress?

From its modest beginnings, Las Piñas has come a long way. It began as a fishing community and became the leading salt producer in the Philippines until the 1970s. Las Piñas, tucked away along the southern boundary of Metro Manila and Cavite, is quickly being one of the most urbanized in the National Capital Region.

Until today, not many people are aware of the way the city of Las Pinas looked in the past. There is a cluster of houses that seems as if they were untouched by the changing times. It was all new to me, too. But it’s true.

The St. Joseph Parish Church’s bamboo organ is Las Piñas’ most famous landmark, but the city is also the location of numerous other cultural monuments. For instance, the 1880s-era Lara House on Quirino Avenue serves as a memory of the period during which Juan Tiongkiao served as Las Piñas’ first mayor from 1905 to 1913. The Viñalon House, the De La Cruz House, the De Leon House, the Cristobal House, and the Hernandez House are other noteworthy cultural relics.

In 1997, Las Piñas also started the Historical Corridor Project. It was sought to rekindle interest in historical sites such as the:

  • Molino or Pinza Dam
  • Zapote Bridge
  • Irasan Center or Las Piñas Salt Bed
  • The site of the second-largest battle of the Philippine-American War (irrigation way back in 19th-century construction by Augustinian Recollect friars)

The City of Progress

Las Piñas is positioned to develop into a vibrant metropolis in Metro Manila. One reason why residential and commercial growth has been influenced by and probably will continue to be influenced by its closeness to Alabang-Zapote Road and Cavite. The city of Las Piñas presently earns about Php1.1 billion, according to its official website.

Currently, residential areas make up half of Las Piñas, and commercial, industrial, and institutional buildings make up the other half.

The fact that 70% of the business in the city are sole proprietorships shows that this area also offers an excellent environment for developing startups. The city had about 7,728 commercial buildings as of 2007.

Las Piñas offers many opportunities to acquire a good job. While the city’s overall employment rate is 92 percent, the labor force participation rate is 64.72 percent. Additionally, Las Piñas offers a sizable number of livelihood and workforce training facilities, ensuring that locals will always have gainful employment.

The Historical Corridor Project is currently at the center of Las Piñas’ attempts to attract tourism. The project intends to lead the restoration, renovation, and beautification of the aforementioned landmarks, as well as increase awareness and interest in the city’s historical and cultural landmarks.

Particularly worthwhile stops in Las Piñas are the churches. There lies the St. Joseph Parish, which contains the renowned bamboo organ of the city. The Santuario de San Ezekiel Moreno is another destination that is well-liked for special occasions like weddings and christenings because of its exquisite furnishings. The Mary Immaculate Parish Church, sometimes referred to as the “Nature Church,” is the last building on the list and is notable for its open, naturally inspired architecture.

In Las Piñas, there are more attractions than just churches and bridges. Families can spend time outdoors while trying to shop to their hearts’ delight at the upmarket mall known as the Evia Lifestyle Center. While this is going on, SM Southmall offers entertainment alternatives like a bowling alley and the first of the city’s two IMAX theaters.

There are also remarkable upcoming and ongoing projects in Las Piñas, such as:

  1. Zapote River Drive Road Project
  2. Cavitex Road Enhancements
  3. Water Reclamation Facility
  4. LRT-1 Cavite Extension
  5. Anantara Square

The City of Love

Loneliness has no place in the City of Las Pias, which has many exciting and fun pasyalan or even dating places, some of which are as follows:

 

1. Visit the Bamboo Organ Museum.

This one-of-a-kind instrument, housed in St. Joseph Parish Church, provides a rare sight as well as a melodious sound from its more than 1,000 bamboo-made pipes. For a small fee, you can learn about the incredible history of this instrument, which was sent to Germany for restoration in the 1970s and then returned to become one of America’s national treasures. You can also hire an organist to play the instrument for you. Every February, the city holds an International Bamboo Organ Festival to commemorate the restoration, which attracts both locals and tourists.

2. Take your partner on a bowling date.

Bowling fans have a home in Las Piñas with SM Southmall Bowling Center, which boasts one of the best bowling facilities in the Philippines. Everything here is fully automated to keep up with today’s pace of technology. It was the first to use a fully automated scoring system. It has also changed the face of 10-pin bowling in the country.

3. Dine or shop at Evia Lifestyle Center.

The Atrium, a fully air-conditioned space ideal for young children to play and run around, is another major draw of this commercial hub. It is actually a garden or park concept in the mall where mom and dad can sit and unwind on the artificial grass while keeping an eye on their children.

Of course, a day in Las Pias isn’t complete unless unique cravings are satisfied. The Piazza at Evia Lifestyle Center offers a variety of excellent restaurants against a backdrop reminiscent of The Venetian Hotel in Macau and Las Vegas.

4. Pray at the Nature Church.

The Nature Church, or the Mary Immaculate Parish, is a nature-inspired church in Las Pinas that has been in operation for over three decades. It is said to be the Philippines’ most extensive anahaw roof, with over 40,000 anahaw leaves intricately woven together. Because of its unique interior made chiefly of wood and other native materials, the open-air nipa hut structure is a popular wedding venue. It is nestled in a mango orchard that is thought to be over 50 years old. The altar was made of marble and driftwood. The hanging dove ceiling decors illuminating the inside of the church were made of Capiz shells.
