After the successful launch of the first five towers: Molave, Maple, Narra, Magnolia, and Mandarin which now have sold-out, the Peninsula Garden Midtown Homes, touted to be the biggest garden community in Manila, is making another milestone with the unveiling of its newest tower – the Mahogany. The Mahogany Tower forms part of the 8-tower residential enclave that has already captivated young families and investors with its kid-friendly features and thoughtful amenities.

Speaking during the launch of Mahogany, Dennis Lim, SVP for Sales and Marketing of Federal Land, talked about the sales of the Peninsula Garden Midtown Homes. Months after the launch of its last tower, the development has already reached its target in terms of sales record. Lim attributed the high sales to the inherent features of Peninsula Garden Midtown Homes.

“The Peninsula Garden Midtown Homes has an ideal location – and it is very rare that we have a property like this in the midst of Metro Manila. With over 2 hectares of space, we are going to build a safe and kid-friendly community in the heart of Manila. It is in a secluded area but is also within a gated community with its own garden road,” Lim said.

What makes it an ideal entry point to Makati and nearby Manila is the property’s location along Quirino Avenue Extension-OTIS Peñafrancia in Paco. With its dual access roads, one going to Quirino Avenue Extension and the other heading to Penafrancia Street, the Peninsula Garden Midtown Homes makes it very convenient for unit owners to go in and out of their homes. The ease of access also gives families plenty of time to bond at home and simply savor the development’s unique living experience.

Always alive with the glittering Manila at its heart, the Peninsula Garden Midtown Homes also affords its residents the captivating fusion of old and cosmopolitan Manila. Ideally positioned to some of the best educational institutions, hospitals, recreational, historical and shopping areas, parents and children have interesting places to explore. What also makes the project a truly incomparable, sought-after residential address is its nurturing environment.

“The Peninsula Garden Midtown Homes was actually conceptualized with the kids and families in mind,” said Lim. “We have devoted large open spaces not only for the children to play but also for family members to relax, bond and have fun without going out. The open spaces we offer are very generous.”

With more than 50 percent of the property devoted to open spaces, the children will have plenty of spaces to roam around, see new sights, meet new friends, and discover new things.

Carefully created to nurture family bonding moments, the development hosts a superb selection of amenities that every family member is sure to enjoy: swimming pools (25-meter lap pool and heated pool) and children’s pool for water enthusiasts; gym/ fitness center for health buffs; children’s play area and indoor game room for kids; a multi-purpose court as well as a clubhouse for some rest and recreation. The garden community, with its extensive development, also features a garden road, gazebo, health walk, a jogging path and promenade as well as a meditation garden. Busy parents can leave their precious one at the day care center while they are at work.

The 19-story Mahogany Tower also has sky gardens incorporated into the building. This green landscape does not only promote an earth-friendly lifestyle for its home owners but also present energy efficiency for the environment. With offerings of studio and two-bedroom units in sizes ranging from 19.00 to 38.2 sqm, Mahogany Tower has a low-density design to foster a sense of camaraderie and harmonious co-existence among home owners. Another exciting feature of the Mahogany is the inclusion of a retail area on its ground floor level.

As aforementioned by Lim, the Peninsula Garden Midtown Homes boasts of top-notch security. Truly wanting to ensure the privacy and serenity of the residents, the development has a 24-hour security and Property Management Office to look after their interests.

The Mahogany Tower of Peninsula Garden Midtown Homes is due for completion by 2017.

MANILA, Philippines –Three of ASEAN conglomerate SCG’s local subsidiaries – Mariwasa Siam Ceramics, Inc. (MSC), United Pulp and Paper Co. and SCG Marketing Philippines, Inc. – were awarded with the Green Choice Philippines Seal of Approval during the Suppliers’ Forum on Green Public Procurement recently held at the SMX Convention Center, attesting to the Group’s commitment of conducting business alongside conserving the environment and creating value for society.

The Green Choice seal is awarded to products that are certified to be environment-friendly, with the objective of raising consumer consciousness on the environmental features of products they choose to buy and use. Among the products awarded with this quality mark is Mariwasa Siam Ceramics’ wall and floor ceramic tiles; UPPC’s test liner board, which is made from 100% recycled paper used in the manufacture of boxes and other packaging materials; and SCG Marketing’s fiber board, which is an asbestos-free cement board, reinforced by high-quality cellulose natural fibers used for various purposes in construction.

These products are compliant to the Green Choice requirements on environment and product quality performance, including adherence to environmental regulations, green procurement policies, health and safety standards, energy efficient processes, and waste and pollution-reducing practices, among others.

“We are very honored and proud to accept the Green Choice Philippines Seal of Approval. It is indeed our philosophy to commit to sustainable development, and we hope and believe that with our high-quality products, green technology and green process, we will help support the Philippines achieve sustainable development for its economy, society and environment, to build towards a better quality of life in the country,” said Anukul Kongrit, President of MSC and SCG Country Director for Philippine Operations.

Aside from highlighting the environmental value of these products, the Green Choice seal also marks the company’s leadership in promoting sustainable development, which takes into consideration not just operational or production costs, but also the environmental and societal impact of doing business. With the Green Choice mark, these products are envisioned to encourage producers and manufactures to improve their production and operating process into reducing environmental harm.

This is aligned with SCG’s philosophy in taking the lead in developing solutions and programs toward economic, social, and environmental issues affecting its business operations, as part of its path toward becoming an ASEAN sustainable business leader. It imbues the concept of reducing, reusing/recycling, and replenishing throughout all its business units, which helps shape the design of its plants and facilities, helps develop and improve production processes, and utilizes eco-friendly materials and technology, to ultimately produce green, sustainable, high-value added products.

M-38 Truck 1/4 Ton 4×4

M-38 Truck 1/4 Ton 4×4

The M38 Jeep was the first post-WW II jeep, based on the civilian model CJ-3A, but upgraded for military use. It was known by Willys as the model MC. It featured flat fenders, a one-piece windshield, bottom-mounted wipers, a fuel filler on the left side near the driver’s seat, protruding headlights, and an air vent at the bottom center of the windshield frame. The pioneer tools (axe and shovel) are located on the passenger side. The 80-inch wheelbase M38 weighed 2,750 pounds. Its nomenclature is Truck 1/4 Ton 4×4, M-38 (G-740).
When compared to the World War II Willys MB / Ford GPW, the M38 is a little larger, with better seating for the driver and passenger, and uses larger tires (7:00×16). It shares a 24 volt waterproofed electrical system with other post-war M-series vehicles, requiring a second battery to boost the voltage. The L-head, 4 cyl. 60 hp. engine of the MB was improved with a gear drive camshaft and was mated to a T90 transmission and 5:38 axle gears.
Willys produced about 45,500 of the M-38 jeeps from September 1950 through July 1952.
my restoration:
i bought the jeep from an old man who is planning to restore this jeep he had this for years but unfortunately he is too busy and getting older to do the restoration, so he decided to sell the jeep instead, a friend of mine told me that it was for sale, i payed the old man 100 thousand for the junked jeep body and it comes with the original not running condition engine we restored the jeep for two months and it runs very good all parts were taken from different places from local to abroad, and i also restored an m100 trailer that is being pulled by the jeep until now i still order some parts through internet to complete some few details of the jeep, restoring this kind of vehicle is not an easy thing to do it takes time, skills, patience, details, and most of all the budget to get the job done
