LBC continues its dominance over the Philippines’ logistics industry with the opening of warehouses to serve customers- all the way from the North down to the South.
Currently in full operations is the 6,300 sqm Kapayapaan Warehouse located within the Mexico Industrial Complex, Brgy. Panipuan, Mexico Pampanga aimed to service the northern region. About 90 kilometers from Metro Manila via the North Luzon Expressway, the facility’s expanse has elevated loading bays that can receive up to 20 x 40w trucks and side loading bays that can accommodate 4 x 10’ trucks simultaneously. It also boasts of a spacious parking for big trucks and vehicles. The state-of-the-art warehouse, which has an optimum capacity of 5,200 pallets, is properly lit and ventilated and equipped with a Fire Detection and Alarm System.
The Kapayapaan warehouse is the first step of a planned program of northward expansion that includes the opening of another warehouse in the northern Luzon area this year. LBC’s move to strategically erect warehouses close to TPLEX aims to minimize the entry of big trucks into congested and traffic prone cities.
This year, LBC opened yet another warehouse facility located at Lanang, Davao- this time to cater to the booming economies of both Visayas and Mindanao. Boost in sales by 28% from 2018 coming from various key existing and new accounts is reflective of the overall economic uptrend.
Strategically located at 5.5 kms. from the Davao International Airport and only 3.7 kms. from the seaport (Sasa Wharf), the warehouse sits on a 8,215 sqm lot with a covered area of 4,570 sqm. It also has elevated loading bays with up to 12 doors and will soon be installed with solar panels, making the warehouse environment-friendly and cost-efficient.

I finally found a Day Tour escapade ideal for the family which entails fun and learning for the kids. We traveled around the world — with no passport required, low budget requirement and you can tour the iconic places in the world in just 100 minutes! Impossible? Read more to know HOW⤵️
I learned about this resort on Facebook, it suddenly appeared on my newsfeed and I instantly fell in love. We decided to celebrate my son Conan’s 3rd birthday at a low budget resort but at a place that will leave a remarkable memory, we traveled to Torres Farm and Resort, which to our surprise was only less than an hour drive from us (General Trias), and only 1-hour and 30 minutes for those of our friends who came from Manila via public transport. The accessibility of the place made us more excited to explore the place.
Torres Farm and Resort was originally a 14-hectare mango farm. Wherein the very accommodating owners, Mr. Frederick and Anna Baylosis resides. The idea started when the couple decided to have their own private pool, then little by little they enhanced the idea of creating replicas of the iconic places of the world. Then just 2 years ago opened the place to the public. I was amazed by the humbleness of its owners and their hearts generosity of sharing their humble place to the people of Cavite & all others who want “to view the world” at a low-entrance fee rates.
Upon arrival, we were ushered to the office of the Resort, and were given wrist tags as a proof of paying the entrance fees.
The entrance fees are as follows:
Adult – P180
Kids (4ft. below) – P120
You will be reminded of some simple rules posted on the wall outside the office.
Travel the world in 100 minutes!
→ The 100-minute travel challenge applies to the traveling time from Manila to Naic
→ You can also tour the place in 100 minutes or more depending on your love for IG feed, and of course, photo shoot is so hard to refuse in this place
Easily recognized around the world is the famous Santorini of Greece. The rendition of Torres Farm, its white and blue colored structure gave dignity to the real Santorini. This has been an inspiration of the Function Room found at the Torres Farm and Resort – Greece Theme. We spotted a wedding celebration during our stay at the resort and it can cater quite a number of guests as well as its car parking space can accommodate at least 20 to 50 cars.

When I first visited Masaito Homes in Trece Martirez last June 2016, it was just a vast piece of land, no model houses yet and the monthly amortization was just P1,900 for the rowhouse and P3,000 for Fresca House model.
MASAITO HOMES TRECE is a 28 hectares conceptualized features of Mediterranean Hispanic Inspired Architectural. Today, many ornate homes that combine elements from any of those countries are called Mediterranean (or Neo-Mediterranean) because of the composite of cultural influences from that region. Houses may feature terraces or courtyards, stucco finishes, porticoes, balconies or any number of elements inspired by houses on the Mediterranean.
Commercial: Trece Public Market, Tower Mall Trece, Jollibee, Puregold, Waltermart, Metrobank, Landbank of the Philippines.
Institutional: Provincial Capitol, BIR, Philhealth, TESDA, Gen Emilio Aguinaldo Hospital, Korean Philippines Hospital, M.V Santiago Medical Center.
Educational: New Generation International School, Saint Jude School and Church, Trece Martires National High School Sch., Trece Martires Elem School, Colegio de Santa Rosa, Notre Dome of Don Bosco.
Industrial Zone: Cavite Export Processing Zone (CEPZ)
Now, after just 2 years, monthly amortization have increased by more than 30%, imagine if you have invested in 2016, that is almost double your money by 2018. Real Estate investment is a “no loss” investment, a legacy that you will leave for your family.
This coming Saturday, I might come and join the site viewing at Masaito Homes – Trece Martirez, it is just a stone’s throw away from SM Trece, so if you want to come with me.
We often read it in social media regarding living the Zero Waste lifestyle. I became curious about it and started adopting it a month ago. But before this Zero Waste advocacy, former environmental groups already started campaigns in saving our Mother Earth.
Here is my story;
I’ve been an environmental advocate since I was in my grade school years, oftentimes joining school events with campaign on environmental protection. When I was in high school, I was even elected as the “Garbage Manager”, funny how it was called but it simply mean I am the one in charge with the strict implementation of the “no littering” policy in the classroom. Usually, the advocacy where just slogan making contests, campus campaigns, and the like.
When I was in college, I joined Earthsavers Movement then I remember before facebook came I even joined a social media site called “Care2Connect” , in there environmental advocates may just click a cause and already “donating” just by using the site. It was like a facebook where you can interact with fellow advocates. It has been years ago since I last visited the site.
I also signed up with GreenPeace Philippines last 2014. A GreenPeace staff asked me to sign-up with their newsletter and so did I. I also had an account enrolled to automatically deduct some donation for Greenpeace but my involvement with the organization stopped sometime in 2017 due to change of e-mail address and busy schedule. Occasionally, I’ve been receiving thank you notes and some gifts like keychains, memopads and the like.
Beginning 2018, since I am mostly online and browsing through social media, I found Zero Waste Filipina facebook page and got inspired with eco-bricks and on reducing the amount of plastics we use. Before this, it is normal for our family to segregate the wastes — Paper, plastic bottles and the like, cans, metals and so on and once accumulated we then sell it to the Junk Shop. We usually earn P80 to P130 from these junks.
Now, I did research on eco bricks and was inclined to watching Zero Wastes advocacy, read blogs on how to do it. We not only segregate the items above, but also added to segregate plastics of all types – soft and hard, sachets of all types, everything. In short, the waste going to the garbage for the garbage truck were remarkably reduced.
I will share to you how to make an eco brick on my next blog post and maybe share my journey on how I am adjusting to the “Zero Waste Lifestyle” along with adopting “minimalism” and “downshifting.”
You will also see how the youngest eco-bricker can actually do it 🙂
Right now, as I am writing this blog, I came across an organization in Cavite, of course via facebook, the EcoBricks Cavite. Did some chat with the admin, and I am more happy than ever to talk to someone who shares the same advocacy. I was hoping to participate too on their next Eco environmental events as I did at the Tree Planting and Wild animal releasing at Pico De Loro Mountain Range last June 15, 2018 with PCLEDO’s Head Mr. Alvin Mojica. ( Provincial Cooperative Livelihood and Entrepreneurial Development Office (PCLEDO).
As if by chance, while deeply learning this Zero Waste Lifestyle, I was invited to the first zero-waste and sustainable fair in Manila, inspired by brands and individuals who are passionate towards saving the earth — The Good Trade, this coming July 21-22 in Central Square, Bonifacio Global City.
