Unit prices range from Php 1.3 million to Php 2.8 million, with properties having an estimated 5% annual increase in value.

Five tips to have a holiday that’s easy on the pocket

By now everyone is deep into the holidays. And the season of giving can only mean one thing: with all the presents to give, parties to attend, and getaways to make, there will be a lot of spending coming your way.

But that doesn’t mean you have to grin and bear all those expenses you’ll be making this Christmas! This is the best time to take advantage of all the deals, sales, promos, and perks that are available the whole season.

Here are a few tips you can use:

1. Set a spending limit
If you are really on a budget, then it’s important to set a spending limit. It’s better to acknowledge that you have got a hard limit to be mindful of, instead of having to deal with overspending when Christmas is over. Plus, it will force you to be more creative when it’s time to shop.

2. Make a list
Take the cue from Santa – he makes a list and checks it twice! Keeping a list will help you remember what you need to buy and the budget that you need to stick to.

3. Use the right credit card
Mastering the art of Christmas shopping will depend on your tool of choice. Have you considered getting the right credit card that lets you spend exactly the way that you need to?

For example, using an EastWest credit card to shop for the latest in gadgets, fashion, appliances, and more can get you 0% interest on installment for up to 24 months at Abenson, The SM Store, Power Mac Center, Rustan’s, and in over 2,000 participating outlets nationwide. That means you can get everything you need to get in your Christmas shopping without worry!

4. Find sales and discounts
Everyone is going to buy a lot this Christmas, so you can expect a lot of sales, everywhere! Take time to find the right holiday sales to get the things (and experiences) you want and need, at the best prices.

If you are looking to take a much-deserved holiday getaway, EastWest credit cards are ideal for booking and paying (partner hotels, resorts, restaurants, and more!), as they come with exclusive perks, discounts, and savings.

5. Give more
Christmas is all about giving, so you might want to spend less on the things you want for yourself and instead focus on giving gifts to people around you. If you can give something that doesn’t need to be purchased, that’s even better.

Give a loved one the freedom to spend with an EastWest supplementary credit card, to get free cash credits on your own principal card. Not only have you given them more financial freedom, but you get rewards along the way too!

Don’t miss out on everything you can enjoy this Christmas with your EastWest credit card. To learn more about all the promos and perks available this holiday season, visit Happy holidays!

Warner Music Philippines recently announced its four new signed artists Quest, St. Wolf, Keiko Necesario, and Leanne & Naara during its Christmas party with the press last December 5, 2019 at 19 East, Sucat, Muntinlupa City.    


The Philippine premiere Filipino singer, rapper, songwriter, and producer Quest is best known for his 2012 hit song “Sige Lang,” which topped numerous charts, garnered various awards, and even became the theme song for the basketball team Gilas Pilipinas. 

In 2016, Quest was awarded with the Best Inspirational Song for his single “Higher,” and Album of the Year for “Life of a Champion” at the Awit Awards. Early this year, he released a new single called “Permanente” with Kianna Valenciano, and since then, he has been focusing his career on his new album “Dream Awake.” 

St. Wolf is an up and coming band who started in 2015. Consisting of members KL Dela Cruz (vocals), Vince Lucero (guitars), Karlo Maglasang (bass) and Bob Sadural (drums), St. Wolf has released remarkable songs such as "Papara," "Taguan" and "Jealousy.” The band is part of the latest Coke Studio Philippines series.

Keiko Necesario is a singer-songwriter who has been independently creating her own albums and songs. In 2015, she released and produced her very first album, a ten-track compilation called “Through It All.” Her cover of the song “Both Sides Now” by Joni Mitchell was featured on the British TV series “Ackley Bridge” early this year.

Leanne & Naara, a rising singer-songwriter duo has been playing since college and was formed in 2012. After releasing their single “Again” in 2016, the song topped the charts on Spotify ranking number one in the Philippines and number twelve in the Global Viral Charts.

Hallmark x 7-Eleven partners this holiday to bring cheers to street children

The air is chilly, the mood is merry, and the lights are out and sparkling. What a joy it is to have the holidays upon us once again. This is the time to give back and share the love and blessings we have received this year, as it is what the true spirit of Christmas is.

This Christmas, Hallmark is inviting you to celebrate the season with the gift of love and care. In hopes to bring holiday cheer to street children, Hallmark is partnering with PhilSeven Foundation, convenience store 7-Eleven’s charity arm, through ‘Gulong ng Karunungan’ (GNK) project. This is a mobile school project that aims to provide education to the less fortunate street children of select local cities in the Philippines.

 Over the past years, GNK has helped augment the learning, supplemental feeding, and basic medical needs of over 2,000 disadvantaged youth, comprised mostly of out-of-school children and informal settlers from identified city beneficiaries.

Moreover, you as a customer can be a part of this jolly project. With every purchase of Hallmark Christmas products such as their Gift Wrappers, Gift Bags, Gift Tags and other Christmas products from 7-Eleven, a portion of the sales will be donated directly to support GNK project.

Make this season shine by celebrating it, too, with people outside your home. And when you care enough to give back, we believe that the smiles and joy of children in need are more than enough to warm your heart and make your Christmas, the merriest ever.

*Be involved and get your Hallmark products by visiting your neighboring 7-Eleven store.
Hallmark Christmas products are also available in all leading bookstores and select online shops
