Catch a Glimpse of What Life Means at Amoa

Life in the city is bustling almost 24/7—jumping from one place to another, getting stuck in traffic, and going to bed at night with the honking, whizzing, and revving of vehicles just right outside your home. It’s a hassle most people don’t ask for, but have to deal with. Give Amoa by AboitizLand a minute or two to show you that ‘life means more’ and one of the most anticipated projects of Cebu’s premier developer might just be the ideal solution to your geographical issues.

The riveting modern Filipino touch to its seven enclaves gives home to would-be residents of Amoa. Nestled close to the mountains and the sea, it promises an affable lifestyle to make way for richer memories within its large portion of open spaces and wide range of modern amenities to choose from. You can never go wrong with spending some time at the basketball court, grand lawn, central park and collective swimming pools to unwind—and these are just a few of many others worth checking out inside the five-star resort-like suburban.

Amoa’s first model home was launched to the public last February 23, giving a glimpse of Ananda, a single-storey unit with a living room that greets you the moment you walk in, as well as a small kitchen, a dining room, a bathroom, and two bedrooms. Two doors—the main door and the back door—are built aslant across each other, allowing fresh air to pass through within the house easily and conjuring a comfy lazy day. For a couple or a small family, Ananda is quite spacious to live in.

“Amoa is for start-up families who value a better way of life,” shares Raffy Potestad, the marketing officer of AboitizLand. “It is basically for families with three to four members who love outdoors and are planning to live in a vibrant, uncrowded area in the north of Cebu Province.”

Surrounded by larger cities such as Cebu, Mandaue, and Lapu-Lapu, Compostela is the perfect location for those who are looking to live in a tranquil and nature-centered
area. If you’re worried about worse traffic conditions, Raffy describes the drive to and from the metropolis to be tolerable, only taking an hour at bare minimum. It’s rest assured that you still get to stay close to establishments even by residing in a
province. Living in Amoa is pretty much like hitting two birds with one stone, as the old saying goes.

Within the premises of the 60-hectare residential community, a broad array of house-and-lot units currently cost P1.6 to P5 million. It is quite an agreeable price to pay in exchange for an exceptional experience in the neighborhood of your dreams.

Canvassing for a new house to relocate to is just as stressful as continuing to live in a crowded environment, but every bead of sweat becomes rewarding when the universe is in your favor and grants you the home beyond your expectations. Add Amoa by AboitizLand to your list, and you will certainly not dwell in disappointment.

Here’s What Cebu’s Restaurateurs are Preparing for Easter Week

The arrival of Holy Week often means a mass exodus out of the city—whether it’s for a trip back to one’s hometown or an opportunity for a vacation. That being said, food choices during this time are often limited, with restaurants cutting down hours to prepare for the holidays, or creating menus that suit the season.
 
While it’s interesting to know what these food spots will offer, we’re curious about what the people behind them prepare at home. To satiate our curiosity, we asked some of Cebu’s notable chefs and restaurateurs what they’re cooking up this week.
 
 
“For Most Holy week days, we’re most likely out of town. But buona pascqua is huge in Italy. So when we’re in town, we’re spending Sundays around the kitchen. We do gnocchi in all sorts of forms. We’re rolling it, then pan frying, adding reduced liquid , adding meat. Using cauliflower to make it healthier. And how can Easter be without a sweet? A Burnt Caramelized mini “otap” Tart with pear is our choice.” —Kate Anzani, Anzani
 
 
“One day this Holy Week, it’s going to be ribeye, mashed potatoes, puttanesca pasta for dinner and homemade tacos & margarita for the afternoon. Other days, we dine out.” —Jan Rodriguez, Weekend

Milk tea shops are always filled to the brim daily by tens and hundreds of milk tea lovers from all around the city to savor their favorite iced milk tea drinks. At this point, milk tea businesses are upping their game with the tough competition.

The milk tea frenzy continues to go viral in the city of Cebu and it’s not going anywhere anytime soon. Milk tea shops are always filled to the brim daily by tens and hundreds of milk tea lovers from all around the city to savor their favorite iced milk tea drinks. At this point, milk tea businesses are upping their game with the tough competition, may it be creating new and unique flavors to add to their menu, creating delivery systems for easier transactions in the comforts of their customers’ homes or innovating new products that are inspired from the flavorful milk tea drink.

That being said, we prepared a list of the different ways to enjoy milk tea in Cebu for all the milk tea lovers out there.

 

Milk Tea Shake

Zagu’s Pearl Milk Tea

Way before this nationwide obsession for milk tea had started, Zagu, the famous pearl shake brand in the Philippines, was one step ahead of bringing us a shake flavor that would unknowingly become a trend in the upcoming years. Zagu has been serving our favorite flavored drink for years now and people are still talking about it.

Zagu’s Pearl Milk Tea is fairly sweet just like any typical iced milk tea drink that you can buy but this one has a unique twist to its texture that you cannot find in any tea shop around the city. With the summer coming along, this milk tea will definitely cool you from the heat and satisfy your milk tea cravings as well. The best thing about it is that you don’t have to go through great lengths in finding a Zagu. You can basically find it in any mall in Cebu. Just go to a food court and you’ll surely find one.

 

Milk Tea Float

The famous milk tea soft serve from Koala Tea definitely broke the internet when they introduced the soft serve last month, making every milk tea lover shake with excitement as they try a new way to enjoy their milk teas.

Koala Tea serves their milk tea soft serve with pearls or oreo as a topping but if the two doesn’t float your boat, it’s okay! Koala Tea prepared a variety of toppings that you can add with your soft serve such as pudding, cream cheese and many more. They even have a waffle to go with your soft serve. How amazing is that? With the variety that they offer, surely, you’ll find one that suits your taste.
