GIV­ING BACK TO THE HE­ROES OF OUR LIVES

North­ern Liv­ing and Es­tan­cia joined forces to give ur­ban dads a day to re­mem­ber

Northern Living - - SPECIAL FEATURE -

It’s a sci­en­tific fact that we use more of our fa­ther’s DNA de­spite inheriting an equal amount of genes from mom and dad, ac­cord­ing to a study by the UNC Health Care and UNC School of Medicine. So, for most of our charm­ing traits and am­i­ca­ble qual­i­ties, we can give due credit to our fa­thers. What bet­ter way to ex­press our heart­felt grat­i­tude to fa­ther­hood world­wide than to com­mem­o­rate a day es­pe­cially for them. Last June 18, Fa­ther’s Day was cel­e­brated at Capi­tol Com­mons Park. Pre­sented by Or­ti­gas & Com­pany and Es­tan­cia at Capi­tol Com­mons, and co­p­re­sented by North­ern Liv­ing, the event was meant to bring fes­tiv­i­ties and cheer to our fa­ther fig­ures.

It was a no-brainer. Es­tan­cia’s open-air space pro­vided the ideal set­ting for Fa­ther’s Day. The first pre­miere mall of Or­ti­gas & Com­pany, Es­tan­cia lies in the heart of Capi­tol Com­mons, an in­te­gral nu­cleus in Pasig City, act­ing as the re­tail com­po­nent of the in­te­grated-use de­vel­op­ment. Well­cu­rated brands and es­tab­lished din­ing des­ti­na­tions are spread through­out the space, of­fer­ing con­ve­nience and class in a re­laxed at­mos­phere.

Hav­ing al­lot­ted an open space for the spe­cial day that was dec­o­rated much like a fair ground, com­plete with out­door games and a pop-up kids’ sec­tion. Fam­i­lies were treated to live per­for­mances by Vince La­horra Quar­tet and Dayaw. The scent of grilled meats wafted through the air from ten­ants like Tatang’s Bone­less Le­chon, Great Burger Truck, Mad Mus­tard, and the like. On the other hand, re­fresh­ments and beer were served all day to let the re­lent­less fam­ily man kick back a bit and re­lax.

Fam­i­lies were able to treat their fa­thers to some well-de­served re­lax­ation and bond­ing over food and drinks.
