The largest IKEA in the world is finally opening in the Philippines!


In a press release Friday, the Swedish furniture maker said its first branch in the country — located at the Mall of Asia Complex — will open its doors on Nov. 25. It is tagged as the biggest IKEA store in the world.
Loading...


"It has been a challenging couple of years, but we are proud that even through a pandemic, we are now ready to build a better everyday life with the many people in the Philippines," said Georg Platzer, IKEA Pasay City's store manager.
IKEA Philippines was supposed to open its first physical store in 2020, but it was pushed back to this year due to construction delays and the COVID-19 pandemic.

WHAT TO SEE INSIDE IKEA?

The IKEA store will feature a showroom and market hall with a total of 8,000 products. Visitors can stop by IKEA's restaurant, which can accommodate up to 850 people — subject to strict COVID-19 protocols.




There will also be a marketplace where customers can find various Swedish food products, including vegetarian and vegan products like meatballs, hot dogs, and ice cream.

Due to the ongoing pandemic, the store will only allow a limited number of visitors per day via a slot booking system, IKEA said.

To schedule a visit, customers must visit ikea.ph and follow these steps: 1. Book a date and time slot; 2. Choose number of visitors (up to 3); and 3. Get a digital token. IKEA Family members will be getting early access to book shopping slots.

IKEA Philippines launched its e-commerce site earlier this month. The site is now operating 24/7 and accessible to more customers buying items for home storage and work space, Platzer said.

IKEA Philippines - the biggest in the world!

President Rodrigo Roa Duterte on Monday approved the recommendation of the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF-EID) to lift the mandatory use of face shields in areas under Alert Level 1 to 3.

“Ang decision ko is okay, tanggalin nyo na yung [face] shields. Pwede na ninyong (My decision is okay, you can remove face shields. You can), you dispense with the shields but not the (face) mask,” Duterte said in his prerecorded “Talk to the People”.

Duterte said face mask would remain part of the day-to-day safety measure “kasi matagal pa itong virus na nasa hangin lang (because the virus which is airborne will be here for a long time).”

He urged the public to make sure that the Covid-19 positivity rate in the country will continue to go down by following the health and safety protocols.

“You have to obey what the government will tell you to do because it’s for the good of the country and for you. Sumunod lang kayo (Just obey),” he said.

On Monday, Executive Secretary Salvador Medialdea issued a memorandum detailing the voluntary use of face shields in places with a relatively low Covid-19 alert level.

According to the memorandum, the use of face shields in community settings shall remain mandatory in areas under Alert Level 5 and granular lockdowns.

For places under Alert Level 4, local government units and private establishments are given the discretion to maintain or remove the wearing of face shields policy.

People residing in places under alert levels 3, 2, and 1 can voluntarily use the face shields as their added protection.

"The above protocols are without prejudice to the continuing mandatory use of face shields in medical and quarantine facility settings, and the required use thereof by healthcare workers in healthcare settings," the order read.

The IATF-EID on Dec. 14, 2020 issued Resolution 88, requiring all persons to wear full-coverage face shields on top of face masks in all public places to control the spread of the coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19).

Klook.com
In June this year, Duterte ordered the public to wear face shields only in hospitals but immediately decided to keep the IATF-EID’s original policy following the presence of the more infectious Delta Covid-19 variant.

Boracay will no longer require fully vaccinated tourists to submit a negative RT-PCR test results starting November 16, the Department of Tourism (DOT) said Friday.

"The DOT welcomes the announcement of Aklan Governor Florencio Miraflores on the decision to waive the RT-PCR test for fully vaccinated tourists as a requirement to enter Boracay starting November 16," it said.

The Aklan government on November 12 confirmed that guests would only need to submit proof of vaccination with a QR code in lieu of the test.

In a radio interview, Miraflores said tourists may either submit a VaxCert secured via vaxcert.doh.gov.ph or a vaccine certificate issued by their respective local government unit.

The official said this move is one of the province's measures to revive tourism activities on the resort island.

Boracay had experienced a dramatic increase in tourist arrivals in the last two months, with a total of 32,452 visitors in October 2021 alone, the DOT said.

"We hope to see even more visitors for the months of November and December, given this positive development, and ensure everyone's safety altogether now that Boracay's fully vaxxed tourism workers are at 94 percent, while its entire eligible population is at 70 percent vaccinated," the DOT said.

The DOT, in coordination with National Task Force against Covid-19 chief implementer Carlito Galvez, Jr. and deputy chief implementer Vince Dizon, initiated the vaccination program for tourism workers in Boracay last July.

This is the largest face statue of Former President Ferdinand Marcos carved out of the mountainside in Benguet province particularly in Tuba.


The bust of Ferdinand Marcos along the Aspiras–Palispis Highway in Tuba, Benguet, Philippines, was a 30-meter (98 ft) concrete monument of President Ferdinand Marcos.
Loading...
The monument became a subject of controversy as its construction displaced indigenous Ibaloi residents in the sparsely populated area, and Ibaloi residents were reportedly forced to sell their land at very low prices.

THE CONSTRUCTION

Around 1978, the bust's construction began along Marcos Highway. The bust was constructed by the Philippine Tourism Authority and was meant to be the centerpiece of the 300-hectare (740-acre) Marcos Park that would include a golf course, sports club, convention center, and hotel.

The bust was positioned near the peak of Mt. Shontoug so it could be seen by Baguio-bound motorists as far as 3 kilometres (1.9 mi) away from the monument.

Sculptor Anselmo B. Dayag who built the Eagle of the North (Agoo, La Union) and Lion's Head (Kennon Rd. Baguio) was chosen to design the bust. Dayag died before completing the bust, as did an engineer hired to take over the project.


Prior to the sculptors' demise, scaffolding covered with plywood was reportedly erected to deliberately hide the bust's construction from the public. A typhoon later blew the scaffolding away, exposing the bust. 

THE DESTRUCTION


The bust was destroyed using dynamite before dawn on December 29, 2002, by suspected treasure hunters who thought that the bust contained parts of the rumored Yamashita treasure.

Benguet Governor Raul Mencio Molintas said that the police learned that a white Toyota FX van was around the area prior to the incident.
Cheapest Flights and Airline Tickets Online Booking
It was initially thought that the New People's Army was behind the bombing of the monument. The rebel group's Chadli Molintas Command claimed responsibility for the incident in a press release a day later.

The communists said that the bust's mere existence "is a mockery of justice and a betrayal of the will of the people. ... Let the ruins be an ugly reminder that the Marcoses have yet to pay for their crimes."

THE PROPOSED REHABILITATION

In 2003, Baguio city mayor Ramon Labo Jr. made an offer to the Marcos family to restore the bust. Imelda Marcos, the widow of Ferdinand Marcos, treated the offer as a kind gesture, but stated that any move to fix the monument should be a "collective decision of the Marcoses and their supporters".

Bongbong Marcos, the son of the former president, said the family did not feel the need to have the bust fixed despite the offer.

Metro Manila will be under a more relaxed Alert Level 2 quarantine classification starting Nov. 5 until Nov. 21, Malacañang announced on Thursday night.

“The Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) on Thursday, November 4, 2021, approved the de-escalation of the National Capital Region to Alert Level 2. This shall take effect beginning tomorrow, November 5, 2021 until November 21, 2021,” Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said in a press statement.

The IATF also approved the recommendation of the sub-Technical Working Group on Data Analytics to base the alert level assignments on data that is nearest to the implementation date.

“Starting December 1, 2021, alert level assignments shall be determined at every 15th and 30th of the month. Escalations, on the other hand, may be done at any time in the middle of the implementation period as warranted while de-escalations can only be done at the end of the 2-week assessment period,” he added.

Roque said the National Task Force Against Covid-19 (NTF), together with the Regional Task Forces and Regional IATFs, were directed to provide weekly feedback on the progress and implementation on all areas identified for Alert Level System roll-out to the IATF.

The IATF, he said, also amended the guidelines on the implementation of Alert Levels System for Covid-19 Response in pilot areas to clarify the allowed movement of persons under varying alert levels.

Meanwhile, Roque said the NTF also approved the fourth phase of the National Action Plan Against Covid-19 (NAP Phase IV) using indices to measure the success of the implementation.

For Infection Management, the indices are the number of severe and critical cases per month, time gap from detection to isolation, and tests per case;

Vaccine Roll-out will rely on the total vaccines administered per capita, new vaccine doses administered per capita, and fully vaccinated individuals; and

For Socio-Economic Recovery, the indices are the Purchasing Managers’ Index by IHS Markit, google mobility to retail and recreation, and number of commercial airline passengers. 

Under Alert Level 2, the following are allowed to operate, or be undertaken at a maximum of 50 percent indoor venue capacity for fully vaccinated individuals and those below 18 years of age, even if unvaccinated, and 70 percent outdoor venue capacity provided that workers of the said establishments are fully vaccinated against Covid-19:

An oasis to a countryside vibe of Nueva Ecija.

Armando's Garden Resort houses its in-house restaurant, "Lutong Armando's", public pools, and villa-type private resort.

Last September, me, my family and friends (Team Sang-ayon) had a relaxing weekday to refresh ourselves from our jobs. We had a 22-hour stay at Armando's Garden Resort and had to taste delectable food.

ABOUT ARMANDO'S GARDEN RESORT

Armando’s Garden Resort is the premiere resort that gives out a heart-warming, family friendly, and exclusive events and services in Cuyapo, Nueva Ecija.

The resort provides an indoor pool, hot tub and room service. All guest rooms in the resort are equipped with a flat-screen TV. Guest rooms include a private bathroom, free toiletries and bed linen. 

OUR PERSONAL EXPERIENCE


We arrived at noon time on the first day of our stay at the resort. Jampacked on our travel, we had to fill our bellies to recharge for the other half of the day. So we had lunch at Armando's Restaurant - an in-house resto-bar in Armando's Garden Resort.

ARMANDO'S RESTAURANT


We're happy to try their own version of Boodle Fight - a feast where food is usually served on banana leaves and eaten without utensils.

We had Boodle Set C which includes servings of tempura, Dinakdakan, mixed seafood, Kalderetang Kambing, Ginataang Sitaw at Kalabasa, Tinolang Manok, salted eggs, plain rice and bagoong rice. Plus buko pandan and a pitcher of red iced tea. SEE MENU

Armando's bar and restaurant mainly offers local artisan food and commercial beverages such as beers and alcoholic drinks.

After having a satisfying meal, we took our siesta in the afternoon. Of course, who will miss merienda? We also tried their special halo-halo and some of their brick oven pizza - the first in Nueva Ecija!
Their halo-halo was a cool treat to us - perfect snack in the balmy afternoon. While their pizzas woke us up with cheesy and meaty toppings. They also use natural and organic ingredients mainly from the province. SEE MENU

For dinner, we had 2 of their appetizers - Sizzling Pork Sisig and Sizzling Chicken Sisig. To top it off, we also savor with their very own Armando's Chicken and Special Bulalo. Both were so soft, almost fall-off-the-bones.

The chicken was so tasty, a perfect match with their warm rice. The bulalo on the other hand has a flavorful soup and tender beef plus the buttery (sinusutsot) "utak". SEE MENU

The following day, we had their classic "silog" meals for our breakfast, came with hot brewed coffee, a great way to start the day.


MERIENDA BUFFET

Every Friday, Saturday and Sunday, Armando's offers all-you-can-eat merienda. 

EVENT'S PLACE

This spacious area located at the heart of the resort covers variety of events. The 350-sqm event area can hold more or less 300 guests - perfect for Christenings, birthdays, reunions, team buildings and weddings. The good food served by their in-house restaurant is a plus for any kinds of events. They also offer event styling and coordination.

SWIMMING POOL AND COTTAGE

Their main pool, which is 300-sqm wide, ranges from 2 to 5.5 feet deep. While their kiddie pool has 2 feet deep. They also feature a 2 ft. deep jacuzzi at the same area. Both are located in their public pool area.

For cottages, they have more or less 20 cottages for rent. All are perfect for family or barkada or any group activities.

Cheapest Flights and Airline Tickets Online Booking
In our case, we stayed at 2 of their cabanas (see rates below). Both have king-sized beds, aircondition, TVs, restrooms, complimentary water, towels. The rooms are perfect for couples or a small family.

Their pools feature fountains and colorful neon lights at night. Surprisingly, the water in the pool was warm. It's very warm that you would like to stay soaked than getting out of the pool.

ARMANDO'S PRIVATE VILLA

Aside from all the amenities this resort has to offer, you can also take advantage of their private villa. In this enclosed area, you can enjoy exclusivity with your own rooms, pool and dining area. It's like you rented your own resort inside Armando's.
Overall, our gang were so happy to got to experience a stay here at Armando's Garden Resort. Aside from having great amenities and lots of activities can be done inside the resort, their staff was very friendly, helpful and accommodating. So if you are looking for a quality time to spend with your family and friends, Armando's Garden Resort should be on top of your list.


HOW TO GET TO ARMANDO'S GARDEN RESORT

Going to Armando's Garden Resort is never a hassle. However, it's advisable that you bring your own vehicle going to the resort for more convenient travel.

Thinking of Nueva Ecija, all I know is Gapan and Pantabangan (reminds me of my Baler trips). So I thought, it would be a long ride from Metro Manila. However, it's not the case for Armando's Garden Resort.

If you are coming from any point in Metro Manila, the best way to start off your travel is to take NLEX then head off SCTEX until you reach TPLEX. Travel time is more or less than an hour (depending on your stopover). Toll fee is about Php 360.00.


From TPLEX's tollgate, for less than an hour, you take Anao Exit to get to the Municipality of Cuyapo. Brgy. Malineng, where the resort is located in, is 30 minutes away from TPLEX Anao Exit.

Please use Waze (not Google Maps) for more accurate directions.

COVID-19 UPDATE

Traveling from NCR to Nueva Ecija is allowed depending to your reason of visit. You also have to bring your vaccination card, valid IDs and quarantine pass (if you have one). PNP/AFP might stop and check your vehicle upon entry or exit of Nueva Ecija. 

PARKING
Bringing your own vehicle is no problem! Armando's Garden Resort has a wide and spacious parking area.
