Schick, one of the country’s most trusted brands for effective grooming, started this advocacy barangay tour in December 2012. It aims to promote proper personal grooming and also cleanliness in the community, for the ‘Gwapong Mamamayan’ which is about personal grooming, Schick provided free haircut and shaving services to the residents of the areas we visited. Thousands of samples of Schick Exacta2 Disposables were given away.  For Gwapong Syudad, we have worked with the Barangay of the community and promoted maintaining cleanliness of the surroundings.   The barangay caravan got under way first to Salamalabanan Subdivision in Imus Cavite, then of Antipolo, Muntinlupa, Novaliches, Caloocan, and Pasig City. The caravan held several activities such as three-on-three basketball game, a free-throw and half-court shootout, and a dance showdown that promoted sportsmanship among the participants.

Barangay Kalawaan, Pasig City, was awarded the best-looking barangay because of its liveliness despite its dense population. Its busy streets proved that the barangay was a winner, together with its officials who helped achieve peace and order as well as healthy lifestyle.

“Unang-una nagpapasalamat po ako sa programang SCHICK dahil kami ang napilibilang Pinaka-gwapong Barangay,” said Barangay Kalawaan Captain Jaime “Jimmy” Lee. “Maraming tao ang natulungan at nakinabang dito sa aming barangay lalo na ang SAKTODA, added Lee.

Schick has always believed that being well groomed boosts not just physical but also mental wellness, and hence makes for a more confident community.

“We plan to do this event through our distributors across philippines and have their own mini barangay tour of the Suaveng Ahit, Gwapong Schick,” said stated SCHICK Marketing Manager Cara Ramirez-Tecson. “We believe in its advocacy of promoting proper personal grooming while ensuring that we keep the community in mind as well when it comes to wellness and cleanliness. This activity also enables us to improve our distribution in areas we have opportunities since it includes merchandising blitz and sari-sari promotions that help our brand, Schick be more accessible to our consumers.

Residents can enjoy the sunrise while sipping coffee or while doing yoga, and the sunset while chilling in the company of friends.

Avida Towers Prime Taft is the ideal living space for students and young professionals. Among its amenities is The Nook (shown in photo), a study hall for students to use for their academic work. Avida Towers Prime Taft provides an easygoing, relaxing suburban lifestyle, while providing easy access to the conveniences of modern city living.

To complete the sense of community that Avida envisions for Avida Towers Sucat, an area has also been developed for expanded amenities. This area consists of more than a thousand square meters of land, dedicated to providing residents a means of bonding with their families. A swimming pool is built right in the middle of the newly constructed area, while a playground with a basketball court can be found near the pool, open for children to play in during their leisure time. In order to address the fitness of its residents, outdoor gym equipment is also provided and a brick jogging path encircles the whole amenity area.  A special game room adds to the fun, where one can play air hockey, fuzz ball and board games.

Avida recently tied up with Team Manila to design a colorful board-up that currently surrounds the property. Inspired by the dynamic landscape that surrounds Taft Avenue, the patterns blend with images of the lifestyle one can experience, whether it be studying or relaxing in the Sunset Deck or stepping outside to explore the city.

The expanded Amenity Area of Avida Towers Sucat (shown in photo) is designed to provide spacious, relaxing and refreshing recreation for residents and their families.
