South Forbes Golf CityMANILA, Philippines - What’s with the weather lately? The first part of the week is under scorching temperatures that could lead to heatstroke or something worse. The rest of the week brought in a strong downpour and some gusty wind. But that’s typical for a tropical country like the Philippines. In fact, even with erratic weather patterns like this, there are still a lot of possibilities on how to enjoy life, especially in a place which has a wide array of home types and amenities.

Indeed, South Forbes Golf City, the country’s largest fully-integrated and all-themed golf resort city at the forefront of the Metro Sta. Rosa – Tagaytay corridor, and recipient of the Best Golf Community Development by the 2007 CNBC International Property Awards, the world’s most prestigious property awards programme, and, recently, the Highly Commended Award for Best Development by the 2010 Bloomberg Asia-Pacific Residential Award, is one such place which offers absolute comfort in its many themed homes, as well as total enjoyment through its featured amenities and natural environment.

“There is so much to do in South Forbes whatever the weather,” said Cathay Land president Jeffrey Ng. “Beyond the home, we provide amenities for our residents to keep them active and productive.”

When it Rains, It Pours. You can always feel sentimental on rainy days and Mondays with the Carpenters or just listen to the rhythm of the falling rain with the Cascades right in the warmth of your own home. Every South Forbes home has thought of every scenario where every family can make the most of every situation.

Busy bodies sleep like a king and wake up like a prince in the spacious master bedrooms like that of the Chakri model mansion which comes with its own lounge, walk-in closet, toilet and bath, and even a private balcony. The pitter-patter on the roof will instantly lull one to deep slumber.

On wet weekends, one can catch up on her reading in the Chantilly study. Kids can invite friends over to watch videos or play PS3s with their friends in the family den of the Lovina mansion. Or mom can even bake a fresh batch of cookies in the kitchen of the Sanur home. What more can anyone ask?

In the Heat of the Moment. When the rain lets up, everyone just loves to get out and bask in the sun. Kids would love nothing but to dive in every village clubhouse’s swimming pool. Right over at the Mediterranean Villas clubhouse, the pool is lavishly landscaped with tropical plants and trees along with a cascade made of boulders that feeds cool waters into the pool. The brightly-colored pool deck is the perfect hangout on a bright, sunny day.

On warm nights, Phuket Mansions residents are most fortunate having a private pool right in their own backyard. They can cool off before retiring for the night every summer evening.

Châteaux de Paris villagers can now tend to their home gardens after the rains have watered their precious plants. Otherwise, they could frequent any of the six themed gardens of the French-themed enclave where they can lay on the freshly-mown grass and sit under the shade of a fruit tree, especially the Orangery which features our native dayap – definitely, a sure hit come harvest time.

Come rain or shine, move in right here, right now. Call 667-3757 or 910-5546 for a free city tour or log on to www.philproperties.ph/south-forbes-golf-city/ for more information.
