The Tree Lights Up

The Freeman - - LIFESTYLE - By Ya­sunari Ra­mon Suarez Taguchi

‘Tis def­i­nitely the sea­son of cheer in the metro, what with dif­fer­ent venues ush­er­ing in the hol­i­day sea­son with glee. From one of the city’s long­est-run­ning ho­tels to one which had just cel­e­brated its first an­niver­sary, many es­tab­lish­ments in the city have lighted up their Christ­mas trees.

Ap­pleOne Equicom TowerAp­pleOne Equicom Tower at the Cebu Busi­ness Park had the light­ing of its Christ­mas tree on Novem­ber 26. Lo­cated at the mixed-use de­vel­op­ment’s lobby, the con­cept of the tree de­signed by stylist Basil Cabaral draws in­spi­ra­tion from what Christ­mas looks in the eyes of a child – proudly stand­ing as a re­minder of the splen­dor and won­der that has com­pelled many to view Christ­mas as the “most won­der­ful time of the year.”

Maayo Ho­telOn Novem­ber 28, Maayo Ho­tel cel­e­brated its first year an­niver­sary with its first Christ­mas tree light­ing cer­e­mony. Decked with tra­di­tional Filipino Christ­mas el­e­ments like copi shell-themed lanterns, the tree lo­cated at the ho­tel’s main lobby at the 7th level re­flects Maayo Ho­tel’s com­mit­ment to high­light all that is “maayo” (good) in and about Cebu.

Di­a­mond Suites and Res­i­dences This year, Di­a­mond Suites and Res­i­dences cel­e­brated its eighth an­niver­sary with its Christ­mas tree light­ing and an ap­pre­ci­a­tion party for its val­ued clients. The oc­ca­sion also had the un­veil­ing of a new pro­mo­tion at the ho­tel’s sig­na­ture resto – a first-ofits-kind in Cebu that’s sure to sate the gas­tro­nomic fancies of meat lovers.

Mon­te­bello Gar­den Ho­tel Mon­te­bello Gar­den Ho­tel, the metro’s only villa ho­tel, lighted its Christ­mas tree last De­cem­ber 3. Liv­ing up to its stand­ing as one of Cebu’s longestrun­ning ho­tels, the tree at its main lobby is gilded with tra­di­tional Filipino Christ­mas el­e­ments – topped by a parol sym­bol­iz­ing the guid­ing light that’s cel­e­brated on Christ­mas Day.
