Summer Carnival at CDC’s Manila River City Residences

Last week CDC Holdings invited a number of mommy bloggers, together with their kids to an afternoon of fun at the Manila River City Residences. Dubbed as the “Summer Carnival”, it is a regular activity being held by CDC to encourage the condominium residents to get out of their units and bond with each other, fostering a healthy sense of community and camaraderies among its residents. 

Since it was just a short tricycle ride for me, I decided to go and tagged Adam along. Take a look at some photos taken of the event and the official press release as shared below. 😉

Real estate development company, CDC Holdings, embraces summer through fun and games as it holds the first Summer Carnival event for its residents! The event kicks off this April 18 at its Manila Rivercity Residences project in Santa Ana, Manila. The kids and families from its Paranaque property, Lions Park Residences, will enjoy the event next day.

The Summer Carnival event features outdoor recreation wherein members of the CDC community are given the chance to have a fruitful bonding experience while enjoying the games and prizes CDC has prepared.

CDC Holdings believes in going beyond buying properties, but puts value in building communities. It takes time to initiate and organize fun activities for its residents whole year round.

“We have always valued building communities as part of developing our properties. This is our way to forster a sense of community and further build goodwill among our residents. Through activities such as the Summer Carnival, we wish to instill to our residents the value and importance of community, especially during this time when we are moving at a faster pace and seem to be more detached from each other due to technology, as well as busy schedules. We want to bring back that sense of community wherein neighbors interact positively and support each other, providinga sense of belonging that is beneficial to all”, Charlene Chua, CDC Holdings Executive Vice President, explained. 

At the CDC Summer Carnival, exciting games are in store for resident, including Hoop-A-Loop (Ring Toss), Knock Out, Catch the Fish, Target Shooting, and Balloon Dart. Kids of all  ages can also enjoy being engulfed in a giant zorb ball, as well as have a fun time with other kids at the inflatable playground. CDC will also offer delicious summer treats for the children, such as cotton candy, snow cones, and squid balls.

CDC Holdings, Inc. is the investment arm of a group of companies engaged in property development, property management, sales and marketing, and hotel and serviced-residences management. Founded in 1986 by Elise Chua, CDC Holdings President and Chief Executive Officer, the company has since established itself as one of the most recognized and respected leaders in the Philippine real estate industry.

In its more than 28 years, CDC Holdings has grown adn expanded its set of core businesses to meet clients’ specific needs and uphold its commitment by delivering almost 10,000 quality investments.

adidas announced the launch of the new Climachill™ apparel range, headlined by a black training t-shirt that features intuitive body heat management technology to cool athletes in hot conditions. Perfect for the warm and humid climate in the Philippines, the adidas ClimachillTM is designed to deliver maximum cooling benefit without compromising comfort or design.

“The body’s core temperature can increase by 3 degree Celsius when we are exercising. To maintain a stable temperature, your body needs to work a lot harder to lose excess heat. This may result in impaired physiological functions, which will ultimately affect performance,” explained Dr Maarten Hupperets, Director of Future Sport Science at adidas. “When it comes to performance, every degree matters. The Climachill™ apparel is the smartest and most advanced sporting product and can provide maximum cooling experience.”

For athletes who desire sophisticated solutions in order to regulate body temperature and remain cool in adverse conditions, the innovative Climachill™ apparel is their answer. In this cross-category collection, adidas has also launched training shirts in the most unconventional colour for athletic apparel – black – to showcase the process of the ClimachillTM technology.

Employing industry-first 3D aluminium-cooling spheres, the Climachill™ apparel provides an instant cooling sensation upon contact. In addition to the aluminium dots, the ground-breaking SubZero flat yarn also contains titanium and is woven throughout the inside of each Climachill™ jersey to deliver more cooling capacity.

Filipino athletes don’t have to be afraid of wearing black for fear of heat and they can now train harder, run longer and compete better.

The Climachill™ product range is now available locally at leading adidas Sports performance stores, adidasonline store (http://shop.adidas.com.ph) and sports retailers nationwide.
