Sharing today my first official post from Nuvali.
Been South-based for three weeks and counting, shuttling back and forth Nuvali-Tagaytay everyday to personally oversee construction. Getting used to the Southern lifestyle– which is so calming! Birds, crickets, mountains and fog– who’s to complain? Photo above is from Tagaytay, which is such an easy drive from Nuvali especially now that I’ve gotten used to it. Relax is the word, very conducive for creative play.
Some quick updates as I’ve been off the net for quite some time:
- Alveo has announced its newest project, Mirala, adjacent to Venare and Miriam College. Priority Selling is ongoing today until Wednesday (last count, there were more Letters of Intent submitted than number of available lots!). Lot cuts in Mirala are bigger than Venare, and the community itself is only 29.5 hectares in total land area, so the feel will be cozier and very different from the 74-hectare Venare.
- Have encountered no floods in Nuvali so far, save for some puddles due to drainage issues along Nuvali Blvd. (I think Ayala management has already begun addressing the issue by digging proper canals). I wasn’t here during the heavy Habagat downpour last week however.
- Xavier School officially opened its doors in late June 2012. Will drop by one of these days to say hello and visit the new chapel (if open to the public).
- The Wakepark in Nuvali South is open and well-visited even on weekdays. Heard good things about the pizzas there– will definitely try them out soon.
- A happy sight around Nuvali early morning everyday: bikers and runners in all ages. Have seen this regularly (at least when the sun is out); look forward to joining in the fun sooner than soon.
- Had car issues at one point in the afternoon and inquired as to shuttle services in and out of ASNU– was told that last call for rides in the paid shuttle is at 7pm. So with no private vehicle, there’s really no way in and out of Nuvali at night except to walk or bike. Hope this changes in the near future.
House construction has gone over the one year mark now, and although I have kept mum about all the frustrations and bad vibes, I do have a lot to share about it, if only to help future home builders avoid mistakes I made.
The good news is malapit na talaga. :)
Hope everyone’s been well — fingers-crossed we’ll have a bright and dry week ahead!
