Goldilocks land Highest Silver Award In FHA Cake Decorating Competition in Singapore


 
 
The Goldilocks Cake Decorating team landed a Silver Medal at the 2018 FHA Expo in Singapore held last April 24-27, 2018.  The FHA (Food Hotel Asia) Expo is one of the biggest for the food and hospitality industry in Asia.  The event   welcomed more than 80,000 attendees from more than 100 countries in the world.

 

Adding to the excitement onsite, a string of world-class competitions, workshops and activities were staged alongside the exhibition, providing a holistic show         experience to all attendees. The Goldilocks R&D Cake Decorating Department sent a team to compete for the Freestyle Wedding Cake Display.  The team was led by Mr. Roger Furton with help from Mr. Jomark Capaccio, Mr. Christian Aguila, Mr. Romulo Bello and Mr. Neilbin Cuadra.  They won a silver medal for their intricate castle design which featured complex string work and hand painted birds. 

 

It is also a proud moment for Goldilocks as we saw some of our past and present     winners from the Intercollegiate Cake Decorating Challenge win big alongside our team.  2018 ICDC Champions, Lyceum of the Philippines Laguna was awarded the Gold medal while past ICDC Champion, St. Anne Lucena, also received a silver medal.

 

These wins highlight the big contribution of Goldilocks in developing world-class cake decorating talent in the Philippines.  Our team not only represented the        company but also the country as we cement our position in the cake-decorating world.

 

This win will, hopefully, be the first of many other cake decorating triumphs, which we can look forward to in the future.  Congratulations to our talented and skillful R&D Decorating Department for their achievement.

THE ULTIMATE BREAD JOURNEY GARDENIA KIDDIE WORKSHOP2018

Summer is not over yet and workshops for our kiddos are still on going. My daughter and I got a chance to visit Gardenia Philippines, Wednesday last week. We were able to experience a tour around the factory as well as the kids. It was our first time and we found the factory amazing.
 
You and your children will definitely enjoy the adventure inside the big factory of freshly baked breads in the Philippines.
 
My daughter had so much fun and even asked to go back there if though we even haven't left the place. The experience was awesome. The photos can reveal that.

Diversity, sustainability and social responsibility celebrated at 6th annual PropertyGuru Philippines Property Awards 2018




 
MANILA, Philippines – 14 May 2018It was another successful year for the 2018 PropertyGuru Philippines Property Awards, presented by Kohler, after the exclusive unveiling of Winners and Highly Commended companies during its gala dinner celebration last Friday (11 May 2018) at the Fairmont Makati ballroom.

 

Megaworld Corporation, two-time winner of the coveted Best Developer award, defends its title for a third year in a row, becoming the first company in the Philippines to achieve this feat in the prestigious Asia Property Awards series.

 
Overall the Dr Andrew Tan-led conglomerate won six golden trophies and three commendations for Megaworld, and subsidiaries Suntrust Properties, Global-Estates Resorts Inc. (GERI), and Empire East, the last collecting the Special Recognition in Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).

 
 “Megaworld Corporation continues its winning streak as the country’s best developer for a third consecutive year by launching and developing more quality and smart townships than its peers,” said the independent judging panel.

 
“To date, the company boasts more than 700 residential, commercial and mixed-use projects, including 22 townships and integrated lifestyle communities throughout the archipelago, which help distribute the wealth not only in the capital, but especially in the provinces, where its pioneering ‘iTownships’ are expected to provide growth and sustainability well into the future.”

Among the company’s haul include two new awards for Township Development and Township Architectural Design, which went to Iloilo Business Park and Uptown Bonifacio, respectively.

 
Meanwhile, The Podium Complex by SM Keppel Land Inc. swept all the eight categories it was nominated for, including Best Retail Development, Best Office Development (Manila) and Best Mixed Use Development. In addition, the recently revamped The Podium complex took home the prizes for Best Green and Best Universal Design Development for making the entire development accessible to visitors regardless of age, size, ability or disability.
 
Regional developers also ended the evening with several awards. ArthaLand Corporation won the second highest award for Best Boutique Developer and the Special Recognition in Sustainable Development, whilst its Cebu Lavana Land Corporation subsidiary earned the Best Office Development (Cebu) crown.

Other notable provincial winners include three-time awardees AppleOne Mactan and Grand Land, whilst new entrants such as Grand Taipan and the tandem of Canyon Estates Incorporated/G2 Global Incorporated each won an award.
 
An array of special awards was presented as well, such as the Special Recognition for Public Facility for Terminal 2 of the Mactan Cebu International Airport (MCIA) by GMR-Megawide Cebu Airport Corporation (GMCAC) consortium. The new special award expands the scope of the programme to recognise the role of the government and public entities in the built environment.
 
Meanwhile, Robbie Antonio, founder and CEO of Revolution Precrafted – the fastest company to reach first unicorn startup status in Southeast Asia – was honoured as the 2018 Philippines Real Estate Personality of the Year for changing the concept of prefabricated, luxury homebuilding not only in the Philippines, but also in the biggest markets around the world. Antonio aims to "democratise design" by creating design-forward, limited edition precrafted homes, pavilions and other related structures, and making them more accessible to the masses through more competitive costs.
 
Hari V. Krishnan, CEO, PropertyGuru Group, said: “Congratulations to the Winners and Highly Commended companies in the Philippines. PropertyGuru applauds their contributions that help transform the fast-growing local property sector and increase the profile of underserved regional destinations. We are proud of their achievements and innovations, especially in green, sustainable and township development. We are happy to be able to do our bit in educating more Filipinos about the best real estate projects available that will meet or surpass their needs and expectations.”
 
Terry Blackburn, founder and managing director of the PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards, said at the gala dinner : “The Philippines continues to be a very special market for us. It is a diverse, exciting, fast-growing real estate market that is welcoming to foreign investors, are the same today as they were in 2013 when we started the local awards programme. Although driven by local giants, it is the open and welcoming business environment that allows new entrants, large and small, to thrive.”
 
He added that business opportunities “must go hand in hand with increased responsibility to the environment, to the community and to your employees” as the Awards continue to celebrate companies with outstanding CSR and sustainable development initiatives.
 
The 2018 PropertyGuru Philippines Property Awards was supported by platinum sponsor Kohler; official media broadcaster ANC, the ABS-CBN News Channel; official newspaper The Philippine STAR; official supplier TITANIA Wine Cellar Inc.; media partners Hoppler and PropertyGuru Property Report; supporting association British Chamber of Commerce in the Philippines; and official supervisor BDO Roxas Cruz Tagle and Co. led by chairman and managing partner Michael Roxas.

Tolentino Jr (President & CEO, Aidea Philippines); Carlo Cordaro (President & CEO, Atelier A); Christophe Vicic (Country Head, Jones Lang LaSalle Philippines); Cyndy Tan Jarabata (President, TAJARA Leisure & Hospitality Group Inc.); Jean Jacquelyn Nathania A. de Castro (CEO, Esca Incorporated); Luis Enrique T.
