Homeowners have blissful moments in DMCI communities

The Philippine Star

MANILA, Philippines - The beauty and bliss of living in DMCI Homes’ resort-themed residential communities highlighted once more the latest edition of the property developer’s photo contest for homeowners.

Photos of streaks of colorful lights made by passing cars in the main street of Raya Garden at night and a four-month-old baby lifted in the air by her delighted dad at a Cedar Crest garden as mom watches best depict the experience of living in a DMCI Homes community to earn the top prizes in the just-concluded contest.

The Raya Garden scene captured by resident Don Jose Machuca won first prize in the contest’s “Theme & Spaces” category while the Cedar Crest photo from couple Francine Landrito and Romano Eusebio topped the “Generation” category.

DMCI Homes VP for property management Ana Maria Ferrer and senior marketing manager Jan Venturanza awarded cash prizes and plaques of appreciation to each winner during the awarding ceremony for the contest held at the Sky Lounge of Flair Towers, DMCI Homes’ twin high-rise residential condominium in Mandaluyong City, on Sept. 27.

Ferrer and Venturanza handed the prizes and plaques to each of the two first runner-up winners in the two categories — Joseph Victorino of Tivoli Garden Residences and Michael Cabrales of Riverfront Residences. They also gave the same awards to second runner-up winners Michele Nuez of Riverfront Residences and Howard Victorino of Tivoli Garden Residences.

Ferrer and Venturanza also awarded Alta Vista de Boracay gift certificates to the monthly winners of the contest that ran from May to July. The gift certificates are good for three days and two nights of accommodation for two people at the DMCI Homes resort and condotel in Boracay island.

Venturanza says all the photos submitted by homeowners for the contest make the company proud as they are testaments of families and individuals happily living in DMCI Homes communities.

 “The contest also gave homeowners a sense of pride in belonging to a DMCI Homes community, where the homes and amenities are beautiful and neighbors are good,” Venturanza adds.



Machuca, a professional photographer and designer, says his photo titled “Main Street” gives a different take on the beauty of Raya Garden, where he, his wife and their five-year-old son have been living for the past two years.

 “I like Raya Garden because it’s safe. As soon as you enter the property, you no longer have to worry,” says Machuca of the five-building residential community in Paranaque City. “I also like the swimming pool and the gym.”

For Landrito, their winning photo titled “Making happy memories every day” would be memorable for their daughter, Carline Brielle.

 “As a first-time mom, I felt excited for our daughter because when she grows up, she will realize she won in a photo contest,” says Landrito, who also joined the same contest in 2012 and became a monthly winner.

Like the Machuca family, Landrito and Eusebio feel secure living in a DMCI Homes community.
