The homeowners of Avida Towers Altura received a warm welcome with the launch of a handy cookbook titled “40 Best Quick-Fix Recipes for Your New Home.” It’s a fitting event as the new owners of the units on the recently completed Tower 1 of the condominium development are likely to stay home, enjoy the place with their family. I had the chance to check out the showroom and the actual units which made me daydream of owning one and enjoying the fruits of my labor.
While daydreaming, I browsed the cookbook and find the recipes are easy to prepare. These are homemade comfort food, some of which are shared by Chef Francis Lim of Tipple and Slaw fame. It also includes a map of Avida properties and the nearby groceries and shopping centers. Avida Land, partnered with Yummy.ph for the cookbook which will be given as part of the turnover kit for new homeowners to enable them to create delightful experiences at their new home at Avida Towers Altura.
The launch of “40 Best Quick-Fix Recipes for Your New Home” cookbook was held on August 19, 2017 at the Avida Showroom South Park District and was followed by an interactive cooking demo of comfort dishes by Chef Francis Lim. We also had the chance to participate in the Mystery Box Cooking Challenge where each group created quick-fix meals using only the ingredients from the box with a specific cooking appliance.
The box that our team had contains specialty rice, wine, bullion, and carrot and corn mix. And we have to cook it in a microwave oven. With limited options we decided to make a risotto which was surprisingly good, IMO. For sometime I lived in an apartment alone with limited cooking capabilities. I am aware that even with limited options you can still be creative and make meals that you will enjoy.
“In any Avida community, we always aim to provide our residents with avenues to experience a more fulfilling lifestyle. We know that moving into your new home can be challenging especially for the newly independent ones. Our collaboration with Yummy for this cookbook will be a valuable tool in our residents’ day-to-day living, with easy recipes that any newbie home cook can follow to create delicious meals they can enjoy at home,” says Tess Tatco, Avida marketing head.
I totally agree with Ms Tatco. The “40 Best Quick-Fix Recipes for Your New Home” cookbook will definitely help new homeowners of the Avida Towers Altura in getting settled. The collated recipes are not complicated, with ingredients that can be easily found in the market or groceries. Speaking of groceries, I love that there’s Ayala Malls South Park nearby, making grocery shopping really convenient.

Beyond the residential towers, not only will Altura residents be met with a different kind of Southern lifestyle, but they will also enjoy the various establishments that make South Park District a sustainable community. The 6.6-hectare district perfectly bridges urban city life with the necessity for nature.
It has well-planned residential buildings, aside from the Ayala-operated South Park Mall where residents can effortlessly shop and dine, South Park Corporate Center will be established with BPO offices for those who want to work closer to home. An operational transport terminal makes it easier to access various locations in the Southern Metro, and a not-to-be-missed expansive Central Park featuring iconic art pieces from world-renowned sculptor Reginald Yuson including a large steel composition of interconnected conical forms, and a sprawling composition of free-flowing 3-dimensional tubes reminiscent of doodles which inspire vibrancy, movement and playfulness while keeping a sense of peacefulness and tranquility.
Various weekend activities are also scheduled at the park such as the Mobile Flea Market held every payday weekend between 12 noon and 9 P.M. With all these, South Park District is poised to become an ideal enclave for comfortable and convenient living in the South. South Park District is located along the National Road of Alabang, less than a kilometer away from the South Luzon Expressway.
