When summer ends, let's Go Play more games


Alviera Go Play features world’s first game show-inspired playground 

Alviera, the township development rising in Porac, Pampanga plays host to the first game show-styled playground in the world. Experience outdoor fun and wacky games inspired by hit TV shows like Takeshi’s Castle, Wipeout, and Gladiators in a one-day summer festival.

Alviera Go Play takes off on Saturday, June 11, 2016 at SandBox, a full day of lively games, mental and physical challenges, foamy frolic, bouncy inflatables, prizes, food and music.

Take part in the craziness of Human Foosball, keep singing through Wacky Karaoke, run in sumo suits through Sumo Relay, play Agawan Base dressed in a zorb ball, or manage three lay-ups with binoculars on in Binocular Basketball. Try to kick a goal without wobbling, but only after spinning yourself silly in Dizzy Penalty Kick. There’s Buzzingo, Extreme Jack & Poy, Brain Games, Photo Mission and more. Over a dozen simultaneous games and activities will keep you, family and friends entertained throughout the day.

There’s a foam bash party every hour where a local DJ will be onstage to play the summer’s soundtrack. An inflatable play area will be open for kids aged 13 years old and below. Not to be missed is a water obstacle course where players have to avoid giant swinging balls to get to the end.

Alviera Go Play is organized by Runtertainment, the company behind Outbreak Manila, Slidefest Philippines and Breakout Philippines. Players can sample the Breakout.

Philippines Escape Room Game at the event, for a real taste of the game’s excitement and mystery.

"We are all about memorable moments, big laughs, and team work. Go Play offers young and old a fun-filled festival atmosphere of games, music, food, drinks, foam pits, and lots of selfie opportunities," said Angelo Cruz, Runtertainment Managing Director.

Alviera Go Play runs like an outdoor arcade where players can earn more tickets or exchange them for prizes. Registration as a Regular Go Player for P800 entitles one to 10 points, while the Extreme Go Player at P1,200 gets 20 points. Children aged 7 and below can register as Go Kids Player for only P600 and start off with 10 points. Each activity requires points to join in. Every successful activity gains a player more points.

A point refilling station will be set up, as well as a prize area where winners can exchange points for souvenir items.

Coupled with the thrilling attractions of SandBox, the outdoor adventure never stops. Go Players will be entitled to discounted tickets to SandBox attractions like the Giant Swing, Aerial Walk, Adventure Tower free fall, wall climbing, and Avatar One rollercoaster zipline.

“Alviera Go Play is another one of our signature events to cap off the summer,” said Jomi de Guzman, Alviera Project Development Manager. “This is the kind of experience one enjoys in Alviera, the kind that lets everyone participate in the fun and appreciate the outdoors.”

Alviera, an Ayala Land development in partnership with Leonio Land, is envisioned to become a regional growth center of Central Luzon. The master-planned estate will include residential communities, commercial establishments, academic institutions and offices. Upcoming developments include the Alviera Country Club and the Alviera Industrial Park.

The mindful MUNI Market is coming to Nuvali on May 21, 2016


MUNI Market brings mindful living to Nuvali on May 21

On its 5th year, MUNI Market continues to spread its message of “mindful living” to folks living in the metropolis and beyond through a festive market affair at the Solenad Activity Park, Solenad 3, Nuvali, Sta. Rosa, Laguna. Cause-driven entrepreneurs will be showcasing their healthy, local, and eco-friendly fares including food, as well as home and fashion items, alongside educational workshops, demos, and live musical performances.

Muni” is derived from the word “muni-muni” which in Filipino means to think, ponder, muse, or reflect. Through the MUNI Market, the Muni community of like-minded merchants eager to share their knowledge of “mindful lifestyle options” hopes to inspire people to become aware of their impact as consumers and the simple ways one can contribute to a more sustainable future.

Among the conscious, purpose-driven merchants at MUNI Market include Yadu which produces high-quality bags and backpacks made with upcycled fabric. Risque Designs makes colorful footwear using handwoven Hablon textiles from Iloilo and accessorizes them with Paete wooden icons. Gouache’s reusable lunch bags tote as well as complement wholesome meals. Jertie’s Kitchen specializes in vegan, gluten-free pastries and dishes. 

The MUNI Market will be open 
from 11:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.
In between shopping, kids can attend coloring and storytelling activities, food enthusiasts can watch food demos, and yogis can join a yoga class. While guests mill about the day-long bazaar, musicians such as Toni B, Gentle Universe, Paola Mauricio, and Mellow Submarine will provide live entertainment for a fun and relaxed atmosphere.
“MUNI Market’s ideals are in sync with Nuvali’s sustainability philosophy. We are one with the MUNI community in helping consumers make more informed lifestyle decisions and providing avenues for people to effectively make changes for the good of the environment and society,” said Nuvali Marketing Manager Jennifer Chua.

Within Nuvali’s lush 2,290-hectare mixed-use development are scenic bike trails, hiking paths, and a wildlife and bird sanctuary, in line with its vision as a self-supporting eco-city. Nuvali recently launched Camp N, its premier outdoor adventure and team-building facility that serves as an incubation for self-discovery through obstacles and challenges testing one’s physical limits, mental abilities, and even character and values. Right beside Camp N is Greens & Patches which serves as a tree nursery, a demo organic farm, as well as an art and meditation center for those seeking an introspective approach in self-development. Guided tours and programs will soon be offered here so guests can learn about nature’s processes and gifts. 
How to get there

To get to Nuvali, one can take any of the five South Luzon Expressway (SLEX) exits at Mamplasan, Sta. Rosa, Eton-Greenfield, Silangan, and Canlubang. Nuvali is also easily accessible via public vehicles from major centers like Makati, Bonifacio Global City, and Balibago.
