MANILA, Philippines – Acqua Private Residences celebrated the summer of 2013 by partying Brazilian style at the property’s showroom grounds in Mandaluyong City.

Acqua Carnaval Brasil hosted by developer Century Properties was a visual spectacle with no less than the Filipino samba school Imperatriz Filipinenze unleashing a pulsating sonic experience. Once the drums roared and filled Acqua’s spacious grounds, the guests were on their feet, joining in the revelry to celebrate South America’s most festive country.

The group’s members came out decked in full Mardi Gras regalia to the delight of every guest who had a camera on hand. Think bikinis, headdresses and capes in bold and bright colors. Delicious cocktails and food inspired by Brazil’s vibrant culture and lifestyle also overflowed.

The guests got to enjoy these amid a setting that pays tribute to a body of water located on the border of Argentina and Brazil, the majestic Iguazu Falls, after which Acqua’s latest tower was named.

“Brazil is home to some of the world’s most beautiful coastlines, such as the ones in Rio, Sao Paulo and Bahia. The people of Brazil celebrate life by the water, and remarkably, a green consciousness amidst very urban surroundings. It is in fact one of our inspirations when we envisioned creating the Philippines’ first residential Eden: the Acqua Private Residences,” said Century Properties Co- COO and Acqua project head Marco Antonio.

To promote a summer of wellness and beauty to all the guests, sponsors Zen Institute and I Go Beyond Yoga gave rewards through raffles of gift certificates. Zen Institute gave away thousands worth of treatments in its Quezon City and Bonifacio Global City branches, while I Go Beyond Yoga raffled off free yoga sessions for its Quezon City and Bonifacio High Street branches.

Acqua turned up the heat notches higher that evening by inviting the country’s hottest male celebrity and Century Properties brand ambassador Piolo Pascial to share his personal experience as a property owner and investor.

“Piolo is one of the first endorsers of the Acqua project. He is an award- winning actor, a recording artist, a tri-athlete, and a philanthropist. He is an inspiring personality who embodies the Acqua lifestyle. He is a Century homeowner and will be a future neighbor to those who will make Acqua their address of choice,” Antonio said.
