Inviting Luck During Ghost Month
Situated in Ortigas East, the Maple at Verdant Towers is just one of several projects making up the grand masterplan of the area
As the world continues to fight the pandemic, our local operations in this new normal are already facing numerous challenges with the confusing quarantine changes.
And with the coming Ghost Month, which starts on Aug. 19 and ends on Sept. 19, we all need to make important preparations to welcome the good chi into our living spaces without disturbing the spirits.
To know more about the Ghost Month, you can join us today at 4 p.m. for a webinar hosted by Inquirer Property and Ortigas Land and where I’ll be one of the panelists. Titled “Inviting Luck during Ghost Month,” the webinar will be streamed via the Facebook page of Ortigas Land.
Meanwhile, here are my five helpful tips to enhance your home and to make sure it is “protected” from negative energies caused by the coming Ghost Month.
A clean house allows chi to flow through all spaces.
Keep your house clean and tidy
Chi flows through all spaces but it is blocked with negative elements like dust, clutter, mess and dirt. A clean and clear house, car and computer, not only bring a clean and clear mind but also allow positive energy to protect you by easily clearing away the negative energy.
The computer and TV are considered portals because of their mirror-like surface so they also need to be cleaned and ideally covered if in the bedroom.
Keep spaces bright and well lit.
Keep the lights bright especially in dark corners
Light is also positive energy. Invite this into your home by keeping spaces bright, especially the main entrance of your home. Make sure to replace all busted bulbs and broken lamps. Invite natural lighting into the room by drawing open the curtains especially in the morning.
A fresh coat of paint can bring in new chi energy.
Repair all cracks and repaint if possible
Now that most are working from home, small repairs could be done. Check on walls with visible cracks and repair them. If possible, apply a fresh coat of paint to bring in new chi energy into the space. If not, cover the cracks with a painting or decorative fabric during Ghost Month.
Green and Sustainable: Get ahead by being part of Ortigas East
In today’s world, sustainability is a common goal and aspiration. For Ortigas East, we believe that sustainability is the key to get ahead.
Recognizing that sustainability is the way of the future, Ortigas East has built a holistic estate where communities can reap the benefits of a sustainable lifestyle, creating harmony between people and the world around them. It is deliberately designed with features that make green living a reality.
Maple at Verdánt Towers
All of Ortigas East towers are built to sustainable standards. Residential towers are proudly compliant to the Philippine Green Building Code, while the community’s office building The Glaston Tower is obtaining LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification. As such, these buildings are especially designed for forward thinking companies and discerning individuals who value well-being, a healthy and modern environment, and a conscious way of living.
The Glaston Tower
Sustainable lighting designs are found in all buildings. This brings in natural light which is known to help enhance people’s well-being while at the same time bringing down energy costs. Window glazing for all buildings comply with the Philippine Green Building requirements to allow less transmission of solar heat and greater shading ability which prove to be more cost effective for the residents.
Even roof insulation of all building occupancies are Green Building Code compliant. Insulation helps these areas to be kept at a good room temperature, thus minimizing the need for air conditioning. Exposure to allergy-causing toxins are also reduced byusing paintings and coatings made from non-toxic and non-harmful adhesives and sealants.
Good air conditions in common areas and individual units are also ensured by Ortigas East. Operable windows and balcony doors are strategically placed in regularly occupied areas to grant natural ventilation and promote better air quality. Pocket parks and gardens that surround the community ensure breathable spaces and create a relaxing ambiance.
To conserve water resources, all developments within the estate make use of a rainwater recovery system. This efficiently recycles rain for use across the whole estate.
Ortigas East also extends its efforts to influence tenants to adopt sustainable practices by introducing a Material Recovery Facility (MRF) which encourages proper solid waste management through the accommodation of containers for compostables, non-recyclables, recyclables and other or special wastes.
These highly valued features of the estate bring additional benefits to the community such as improved well-being, sustainable business practices, increased worker productivity, and a sense of community among those who live and work in the estate.
At Ortigas East, sustainability is a way of life for its community to get ahead and thrive.
Maple: Your Vibrant Home in the East
Maple at Verdant Towers
Drive down C-5 Road to realize how much spaces can turn from stagnant to vibrant because of accessibility. Once vast expanses, the areas along that stretch are now populated with symbols of the premium urban life—malls and retail outlets, gastronomic selections, prime workplaces and upscale residences.
If you want to harness the advantages of this dynamic thoroughfare or if you believe that its robustness represents your own ambition, it wouldn’t be a mistake to live nearby. But while you look for easy access to those metropolitan spots, you will also need a sustainable address that can give you peace and privacy, and which will truly allow you to breathe.
Tapping into that aspiration, seasoned developer Ortigas Land is offering Maple at Verdant Towers, the first residential project within the 16-hectare mixed-use estate called Ortigas East.
You wouldn’t miss the estate passing through C-5 Road as it includes iconic Tiendesitas, a shopping destination that aesthetically reinterprets Filipino culture for the urban setting. Ortigas East also has SM Hypermarket and Silver City. All these become instantly accessible to a resident at this tower named after an environmentally adaptable hardwood (and emulating the same sturdiness and sustainability).
This project, which would be the first of three towers, is a 42-storey building with 692 units whose variety can fit the needs of anyone from a young professional to a grown family. It has studio units as well as one- and two-bedroom options. Take one of the four garden units or six townhouses, both bi-level, and it will be like getting a house and lot.
The PlaySpace will serve as your kids’ haven for fun and learning.
Maple will feature amenities that are perfectly suited for the most discerning clientele.
A stylish residential lobby reflects the life that waits upstairs. The lift lobby that leads to four high-speed elevators is made with wood and stone. The building also boasts of upscale amenities that include a residents’ lounge and game room, a lounge pool, a fitness facility and function rooms. The Gardenwalk and The Landscape entice residents to stay outdoors while kids have their own space: a playroom, an outdoor pool and The PlaySpace.
Maple at Verdant Towers’ ground level will be filled with retail shops. The project, which will have a common podium with the two other upcoming towers, will have nine levels of parking, six in the podium and three in the basement.
One should also consider the place where the building rises. Ortigas East highlights Ortigas Land’s take on a sustainable and eco-friendly mixed-use project. It promises wide connected walkways and bike lanes while some 40 percent of the estate would be green open spaces, where people can marvel at the balance between nature and concrete, structures and spaces.
If you want to get to other quarters of Metropolitan Manila, there is also a planned dedicated transport terminal inside Ortigas East. The place is also accessible via Ortigas and Julia Vargas Avenues, and to the BGC-Ortigas Link and the future MRT-4. Zoom out on the map and you will also find schools, churches, hospitals, retail spaces and business hubs near the compound. From the estate, you can even walk to some of those spots depending on how many steps your feet can take.
Green, balanced, premium living with unprecedented access to all the luxuries and opportunities of the city–yes, all in one–is no longer just a concept. It is Maple at Verdant Towers, and it can be your home.
Upscale amenities await residents at Maple at Verdant Towers.

Stomping Ground in the East
It was in 2007 when this writer first stepped on the sprawling wonderland that is Tiendesitas. My boyfriend gifted me with the cutest dachshund puppy and we wanted to get Roxy all the essentials—a dog bed, playpen/cage, carrying bag, harnesses with matching leashes, toiletries, small sweaters for when she gets cold.
It was my first time to care for such a small breed as we’ve always had bigger dogs at home so I was excited, stressed out and hell-bent on pampering this tiny, seemingly helpless creature. (Little did we know that she would grow into such a ferocious, spirited dinosaur. But that’s another story.)
Located in Ortigas East, Tiendesitas wasn’t kidding when it comes to being a one-stop shop for pets with its “Pet Village.” This area has everything for every kind of pet imaginable—from furry ones to the scaly kind. More importantly, it has an animal clinic and shops offering pet grooming services. It’s no surprise that many pet parents from all places troop here. Good thing it lies smack along C-5 Road, easy to find and very much accessible. (You can even choose from three routes from Waze, if you’re coming from the south.)
But Tiendesitas is not all pets and cute critters. It has furniture, sporting and fitness essentials, food and a supermarket next door. This makes the sprawling shopping complex most convenient, especially these days when stepping out of the house to run errands has turned into an intricately planned hunt. Every single stop you need to make, you have to list down. You need to maximize that precious yet risky time you’re spending outside the safety of your home. We are still in the middle of a deadly pandemic, lest we forget.
From Tiendesitas’ Pet Village, a stop at Decathlon should be part of the itinerary, whether you are a sports buff or simply planning to set up a mini fitness corner at home. The world’s largest sports retailer offers quality equipment and apparel for every sport imaginable, and at affordable prices, too. Bikes are also offered here, if you’re one of those who are considering bikes as a mode of transportation especially since going around the metro is still a challenge during this time.
Many families are giving their living spaces a makeover as well these days, transforming areas of the house into home offices and study nooks. Tiendesitas’ Furniture Village has a lot to offer—from study tables, shelves and storage for your little ones’ books and toys, home office desks and whatever else you need to make your home more conducive for work and distance learning.
Stock up on essentials for the next couple of weeks or so at SM Hypermarket next door. But before that, you might want to stuff your tummy happy at nearby Rico’s Lechon. You deserve a treat. Taking your adorable critters to the groomer, shopping for their necessities, browsing through a myriad of sports merchandise and racking your brains which additional furniture you need for the house are no easy feat.
You can tick off each and every item on your to-do list in one day with a trip to Ortigas East, a 16-hectare masterplanned estate along C-5 Road in Pasig which offers a complete mix of components such as banks, offices, grocery store, pharmacies, upscale residential condominiums, dining outlets and retail shops. Here, everything is well within reach—even Meridian International College (MINT College) recently opened a campus here.
Rising in the same community as Tiendesitas is Maple at Verdant Towers. Named after the tree that is known for its hard wood and adaptability, Ortigas Land’s new offering promises convenience, comfort and security in this time of a new normal. Just like the sap that the maple tree produces, residents can definitely look forward to the sweet life within this 42-storey residential enclave. And having experienced a lockdown wherein we were all rendered helpless—from going on grocery runs and getting other essentials for the home—one can’t help but think of how perfect it would be to reside in such an area as Maple at Verdant Towers, where all is walkable.
