Avara : A Not-for-everyone Maldivian-themed Resort in Taytay, Palawan

Aside from the villas and casitas, Avara members will also have an exclusive access to a two-bedroom yacht with crew for an overnight stay or for cruising around the island and nearby areas.

Imagine this: The sound of waves crashing on the shore and the sunlight peeking through the window wake you up on a lazy Saturday morning. You slowly open your eyes, afraid that you’re just in the middle of a dream. But you’re not. You stand up as you feel the gentle sea breeze touch your face. You go out of the porch and look at the horizon. You take your time to enjoy the beauty of the blue skies and the deep sea. The yacht will be waiting for you whenever you’re ready, anyway. That’s the promise of Avara Nature & Yacht Club—the easy life of the seaside. 

Established by the Seaside Premier Development Corporation, Avara is the first of its kind nature and yacht club located at Calauag Bay in Taytay, which was Palawan’s first capital.

The plan for the exclusive resort was formally unveiled at the Grand Hyatt Manila led by its President and CEO Ms. Veronica C. Young, Nov. 13, 2018. 

“After many months of sailing and voyaging aboard bangkas and riding waves, we found the perfect island in Taytay, Palawan to be the home of our pioneering project. It is with a great pleasure to present to you tonight, Avara Nature and Yacht Club – the first of its kind in the Philippines, bridging the middle class to the lifestyle of the rich and famous. As Seaside Premier Development Corporation’s flagship project, we aim to redefine seaside living, where nature meets luxury,” she said in her opening remarks. 

Coastal living redefined 

Avara, which means Sunshine Island, is an eco-luxurious resort that use solar panels as a source of renewable energy, utilize a recycled water treatment system, maximize a hydroponic garden, and take advantage of other eco-materials available.

Its accommodation is inspired by the Maldivian architecture. Members can choose to stay in a one-bedroom Water Villa with jacuzzi, two-bedroom Water Villa with private infinity pool, or one- or two-bedroom Beach Casitas.

Aside from the villas and casitas, Avara members will also have an exclusive access to a two-bedroom yacht with crew for an overnight stay or for cruising around the island and nearby areas. Avara’s yacht features two cabins and a family room in the lower deck; a living room, a kitchen and dining area, and a plunge pool in the main deck; and an open dining space and a sun deck in the fly bridge. 

The Avara Island has nothing but the best facilities for its members. Guests will first experience the Avara service upon their arrival at the dock or the harbor. But the ultra-luxurious resort also has a helipad for those who will be coming in by air. VIPs also have the option to skip the reception and go straight to their accommodation.  

There will also be a boardwalk open for development to the entrepreneurial Avara members. Meaning, Avara members can also be concessionaires to open their own business—it could be a coffee shop, a grocery store, a bakery, a souvenir stop, and similar ventures. As support to the member-concessionaires, Avara will ensure that the business will be the island’s lone supplier for the specific product. 

The island can also accommodate as many as 100 guests at their main dining area and at the grill restaurant. But guests will have more dining options since Avara includes a poolside bar, a seaside bar and lounge, picnic areas, and private dining venues. 

Avara is fully equipped with a gym, a water sports center, a tennis court, and a golf course to those who want to keep up with their fitness routine. 

The island also has a playroom and nursery, spa and massage cabanas, a bonfire area, a clinic with an in-house doctor and nurse, and a gaming area for the enjoyment of the Avara members.  

At any given time, Avara will host up to 300 members to ensure quality service.

As a promised paradise for those who love the beach, Avara offers a myriad of water action such as diving, snorkeling, kayaking, jet-skiing, banana boat riding, stand-up paddle boarding, wind surfing, scuba diving, island hopping, and fishing in coordination with neighbor islands. The resort also provides options for on land activities like trekking, biking, and vegetable picking.

There are also a lot of activities that Avara members can enjoy outside its vicinity. After all, Taytay, Palawan boasts of picturesque sites like the Canique Waterfalls, the Lake Manguao, the Irrawaddy Dolphins in Malampaya Sound, the Fuerza de Santa Isabel, and the Church of Santa Monica. Taytay is also hope to a paradise-like hidden valley that gives tourists a bird’s eye view of the pristine, idyllic coastal areas of the municipality. 

Board of advisors

To ensure nothing but the best of services and facilities at Avara, Seaside Premier Development Corporation tapped some of the industry’s most respected personalities for the resort.

6 - Avara executives and board of advisors

Its board of advisors include the following: 

• National Coast Watch Center Executive Director Rear Admiral Joel S. Garcia for Coastal and Marine Management

• Philippine Army’s 7CMO Battalion Commanding Officer Col. Eugene Osias for Security Affairs

• Cebu Port Authority Commissioner for the Shipping Sector Ms. Regina Barleta for Port Management and Shipping

• Incoming Manila Board of Realtors, Inc. President Ma. Teresa R. Bigornia for Marketing

• Motivational speaker John Anthony Calub for Sales

• The Manor’s Le Chef Executive Chef William “Billy” King for Culinary Arts

“We thank these distinguished personalities for believing in our idea. We can’t wait to show you the beauty of Avara,” Ms. Young said.

Timeless Tidiness

My Selling garb which has stayed glorious and has been my drape for the most defining deals of my Selling profession – The White Collar Dress Shirt. #TimelessStyle #ElectroluxFashionCare 

Styling your Corporate Wear is challenging. It is about following the company’s dress code while at the same time asserting your own stroke of fashion, fortified with your exemplary work performance. What I mean is, it is not merely dressing up sharply. It is about being known to do so, accompanied with your workmates’ admiration of  you being second to none in achieving your work goals. 

For almost eight years in Selling, the work wear fashion has really been changing – colors, patterns, fit and kind of fabric. Being someone who believes that I should dress according to how I want to be addressed, my office wear style has also bent with the blow of the corporate fashion wind. However after all those years when most of the work wear trend just passed by and now are gone, a timeless tidy piece remained. My Selling garb which has stayed glorious and has been my drape for the most defining deals of my Selling profession – The White Collar Dress Shirt.

The “cleanliness” of White reflects credibility and conscientiousness. This sends an assuring idea to the person you interact with that you know what you are doing and that you are doing it right. #TimelessStyle  

White in Selling

White as a color, owns a strategic appeal in dealing with people to begin with. Preserving its timeless tidy “whiteness” means preserving this appeal to keep you best in dealing with your prospects, towards winning new accounts. 

White is simple and smart which denotes a non-judgmental appeal. It assures the person you are meeting with that they are not prejudged in terms of the capacity of buying either the lowest or the highest tag in the display. That is the most apprehensive and annoying lurking a possible buyer should not ever feel. The pleasantness of White makes the prospect feel great spending time with you. Hence, enhancing your agreeability and engaging presence.

The “cleanliness” of White reflects credibility and conscientiousness too. This sends an assuring idea to the person you interact with that you know what you are doing and that you are doing it right. #TimelessStyle

How to keep a timeless tidy White Shirt

  1. CHOOSE THE COMFORTABLE FABRIC. Wearing white gives you that mild anxiety of being stained. That is part of the choice of wearing a tidy office wear. An ease from this is to choose a fabric that gives you comfort while in White. Choose those which are light and breathable like Linen and incorporated Cotton like the Oxford. Choose also those which are easier or do not need ironing. Recent offerings in the market now are those which are “super non iron”, “easy iron” and “wrinkle resistant”.
  2. OWN TWO OR EVEN MORE OF THE SAME STYLE. One of the style tricks Don Draper of Mad Men taught me is to own a lot of white corporate shirts and stock these both at the office and at your closet at home. White never sends the idea that you repeatedly wore the same shirt when you have properly took care of its “same as new” whiteness. Thus, it is ideal to own more even of the same style.
  3. TREAT STAINS FIRST. May it be a blood stain from a scratch, a pen’s ink or even that stain from after work eat out or booze, I always see to it to soak it with water and detergent as soon as I got home, before finally washing it.
  4. SORT THE TYPES OF FABRIC WHEN WASHING. Group properly the types of clothes you are washing so that when it comes to drying, the garments are not damaged and still keep their shape. NEVER MIX white shirts with colored garments when washing. Some colored garments may not stain but their strands/ lint may still stick to the white shirt when dried. Removing these can be both time and emotionally consuming.
  5. DOUBLE CHECK. Check the papers left in pockets especially those which stains when wet like the colored calling card and colored post-its. Check also for candy wrappers. Be sure to also remove the collar sticks and other office supplies made from metal or any ink that might lead to staining or tear when washing. 
  6. SKIP IRONING or at least de-wrinkle as natural as possible. When I wear it with a blazer, I choose not to press iron it at all. Pressing contributes discoloration to the white shirt base on my perception especially when you are not oriented with the ideal temperature of the electric iron for a specific white piece.

    Choosing a washing machine with a Technology that alleviates the wrinkling of garments is a big help too. The Vapour Care feature of Electrolux is a helpful consideration when owning a new washing machine. The vapour action dewrinkles your clothes by relaxing the fibres. It does this with the vapour generated by heating your shirts with a small quantity of water.

  7. DO NOT SCRATCH ITCHY SKIN WITH YOUR FINGERNAILS. I am talking about unknowingly staining your White with your own blood from skin scratching. I used to be a victim of this and I learned that rubbing can be a substitute to ease from itch without a potential new opening in your skin (that results to blood staining). Being extra hygienic while washing your clothes goes a long a way too.  The Vapour Care feature of Electrolux ensures that after wash, your clothes come out 99.9% allergen free. This is especially good for those with allergies or sensitive skin as well as for those with soft, gentle skin. #ElectroluxFashionCare 6B9F0AB3-4157-482C-98EF-7178928FC0ED

Five Visually Involving Movies to Watch on Your Mobile Phone

Have you considered making a mobile phone movie list? These films might make it to your list too, trailer link included.

The sales life can be stressful at times. No matter how immune the Closers are to the pressure of the monthly sales quota, we occasionally tend to look for an “easy to grip” escape without necessarily going away far from the sales table. There are really those times when our ears have relaxed from the songs we pre-selected for our playlist, but our pair of eyes still yearns for a stat visual recreation. Have you considered making a mobile phone movie list? These films might make it to your list too, trailer link included. Got you Fam!

1. Loving Vincent (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CGzKnyhYDQI)

WHY: It’s the world’s first fully painted film which required over 100 classically-trained oil painters to paint with oils on canvases (same as van Gogh’s style) on each of the 65,000 frames used in the film.

Loving Vincent

It is a 2017 experimental animated film about the life and death of Dutch post-Impressionist painter, Vincent van Gogh.  The actors had to first film the entire movie, and the artists had to craft the animated paintings over the images after the filming of the movie ended. This added a layer of creativity because it allowed the viewers to still recognize the actors’ portrayal and appeal through the painted scenes. This gem is a one-of-a-kind visual mirage of vivid whirls and colors, enriched by the artists’ hard work and renditions of van Gogh’s masterpieces such as the celebrated “The Starry Night” and “Sunflowers”. This work of art stars Polish theatre actor Robert Gulaczyk on his first big feature, Douglas Booth, Jerome Flynn, and Saoirse Ronan. The film garnered many accolades and was nominated for the Best Animated Feature at the 2018 Academy Awards.

2. Blade Runner 2049 (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gCcx85zbxz4)

WHY: It is progressive and poised in tone through its muted gray, blue, and yellow visual imagery and cutting-edge effects. The non-cliche setting of a rainy and gritty future Los Angeles added texture and depth to the visuals.Blade Runer

It is a 2017 neo-noir sequel to the 1982 beloved sci-fi film, “Blade Runner”. The movie is about a replicant/bioengineered human who discovers a mystery that leads him to another replicant who has been missing for the past thirty years. It stars Ryan Gosling, Robin Wright, Jared Leto, Dave Bautista, and Cuban actress Anna de Armas in her first breakout role. Harrison Ford also returned to his role from the first movie. The film was praised by critics and won the Best Cinematography and Best Visual Effects at the 2018 Academy Awards.

3. Dunkirk (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F-eMt3SrfFU)

WHY: Director Christopher Nolan’s signature non-linear sequencing, paired with immersive visual storytelling (Remember “Inception” and “Interstellar” ?)Dunkirk

It is a 2017 war film that portrays the British soldiers’ retreat to Dunkirk, north of France during World War II in three aspects: land, sea, and air. Nolan crafted the movie from the perspective of the characters, aiming to use stimulating imagery instead of the usual narrative. Dunkirk has been constantly praised as one of the greatest war films of all time, and maybe even Nolan’s best work as of yet. It stars Fionn Whitehead on his first major role, Tom Hardy, Kenneth Branagh, Cillian Murphy, and ex-One Direction singer Harry Styles in his film debut. This war epic impressed many, and won the Best Editing at the 2018 Academy Awards.

4. Mad Max: Fury Road (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hEJnMQG9ev8)

Mad MaxWHY: With its dynamic blue and orange hues during a six-month long shoot in the deserts of Namibia, and gripping action scenes that banked on effective execution and actual stunts, critics have hailed the film as one of the greatest films of the 21st century.

It is a 2015 action movie and reboot of the Mad Max franchise about a post-apocalyptic wasteland where the protagonist/captive partners with a fellow survivor to escape from a fortress run by a tyrant leader. The cinematography of this film is stellar. The film stars Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Zoë Kravitz, as well as Riley Keough. The movie even got the chance to be shown through an out-of-competition screening at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival in France, and won the Costume Design, Production Design, Makeup and Hairstyling, and Film Editing categories at the 2016 Academy Awards.

 

5. The Grand Budapest Hotel (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Fg5iWmQjwk)

WHY: The visuals of the movie are seamless—the color palette is dreamlike, the production design is quirkily stylized, and the flawless framing of shots are all a testament to Wes Anderson’s distinct and zany artistic eye.The Grand Budapest Hotel

It is a 2014 comedy film written and directed by Wes Anderson who is known for artistic films “The Royal Tenenbaums” and “Fantastic Mr. Fox”. It centers on a concierge who befriends the lobby boy to prove that he is not guilty after he is wrongfully accused of killing an affluent hotel guest.  It also features an ensemble cast of Ralph Fiennes, Tony Revolori in his first notable role, Adrien Brody, Willem Dafoe, Jeff Goldblum, Jude Law, Bill Murray, Edward Norton, Saoirse Ronan, Jason Schwartzman, Tilda Swinton, Tom Wilkinson, and Owen Wilson. The movie is a cult favorite, and has won the Best Costume Design, Best Makeup and Hairstyling, and Best Production Design at the 2015 Academy Awards.

Your eyes need variety too! You can add more visually stimulating movies from these suggestions and reserve those for some quick visual pampering whenever your eyes need it. Consider this though: To fully appreciate visually stunning films through smartphone, your screen should be capable to display life-like depth and texture, exceptional vibrant colors and clarity.

Westlife, one of pop’s biggest ever bands. Before the split up in 2012, garnered 44 million sales and fourteen chart-topping singles. Most of the lines of these award winning songs were sang by Shane Filan. As what one of the comments on one of his latest music videos in Youtube says, “This man kept Westlife memories and music alive… just hearing his voice reminds me of Westlife days…”

The Davaoeno fans are so thrilled for Filan’s first concert in Mindanao. Two unforgettable memories to collect this September 16. First, to finally meet the man behind that familiar voice from a boyband whose songs are eternally admired. Second, is to be part again of that moment when you sing along with your friends that latest Westlife hit like you did back in highschool. This time, with Westlife’s lead singer Shane Filan, live.
