15 Things I Love About McKinley Hill

Many of you may not know this but I'm a frustrated architect. During my younger years, I would sketch houses complete with decorated interiors in a parchment paper. Dad was very supportive that he would buy materials for me. I also paint, mostly houses, green fields and landscapes. I stopped when dad passed away in 1998.

Same year, I was influenced to take  up B.S. Nursing instead, which I decided to give a try thinking that I might get the opportunity to work abroad. But I told myself if I succeed, there's only three countries I would like to serve - my homeland, the Philippines, United States of America and/or Italy. One day, I woke up with a job offer to work in New York. I was supposed to migrate but three years ago, I met a fun, loving, guy who shares the same interest - Home and interior, Blogging! We became lovers and got married in 2013. We both love the country so we decided to stay here and build our family.

The Worth of Modern, Urban Living at Mc Kinley Hill, Fort Bonifacio


Soon, more residential condominium and apartments will open its doors to the hard-working individuals and their families. A week ago, I was invited to take a sneak peek at Megaworld's latest addition of residences. One is grand Venice luxury residences. They're great flats, in terms of availability, amenities and location. During our tour, it got me scratching my head thinking about the worth of modern, condominium living. It brings back the same excitement when I wanted to migrate in Italy. Sayang! A life waiting to spend living, working, playing, learning and shopping in a place I've been wanting to visit, Venice in Italy!

McKinley Hill boasts a fantastic architecture, amenities that can truly improve the quality of life. As a frustrated architect, I realized how modern design and healthy lifestyles can go together.

Housing Types:

Exuding elegance, beauty, accessibility and a European lifestyle. They are the #McKinleyHill Village, McKinley Garden Villas, Tuscany Private Estate, Stamford Residences, Morgan Suites, Viceroy, The Venice and The Florence.

Studio type, one to three bedroom unit, whether you're single or have quite big family, Megaworld Corporation has the answers to all your needs. I realized if I lived in what you call "urban lifestyle", I could spend more time walking on sidewalks while enjoying the beautiful landscape, meeting interesting people rather than spending most of my time in the lonely cab while stuck in the traffic.

Township Facts and Unique Features:

McKinley-Hill-Fort-Bonifacio

A Mediterranean lifestyle surrounded with my favorite cafes, restaurants, spa and few minutes away from work. In addition to the convenience, if I'm not in the mood for a leisure walk, there's usually great public transportation that will bring me to the famous Bonifacio Global City, High Street for shopping, major roads to EDSA, South Super Highway or C5 road. Moreover, McKinley is close to four (4) foreign embassies - Korean embassy and British embassy are the two.

Education is our primary concern but parents need not to look further, there are three (3) international schools withing the area. Currently, McKinley Hill has 482 residential lots, 15 office buildings and 90 commercial stores and must-visit restaurants.

Less work means More Play!

For me, less worry if maintenance responsibilities can be shared amongst homeowners. Certainly, I don't want to spend most of my time with the maintenance I would rather create wonderful memories with the people I love or perhaps give time volunteering for good cause.

15 Things I Love About McKinley Hill

1. French Cuisine at Ederun's Restaurant 101 (full review here)

Have you heard and tried Salmon Fillet Mi Cuit, Caper Herb dressing? How about Chicken Basquaise? Tongue twisted? Well, it's okay! Although it would be great to be familiar with one of two French words. By the way, Mi cuit means half cooked but not raw! I recommend you visit Restaurant 101 and have a slice of one of the world's renown dessert, Louis XV

2. Coffee, Breakfast and Thai cuisine at Black Canyon Coffee

Although I enjoy the path I've chosen - as a staff nurse in the past and wife and blogger, today. My first love, architecture and design has never forgotten. Each time I visit a mall, I would sneaked in the Home section and look at the lovely furniture, kitchen appliances, linens, curtains and table clothes. I love designing our house. It's free to dream that someday we could get one of those Mediterranean inspired living room at McKinley Hill. Being a house-dweller all my life, I've been longing to live in a flat. I feel there's something about it that draws me - it's compactness and functionality

Have you visited McKinley Hill in Fort Bonifacio? It's a must-see place in the Metro. For more information, log on to www.megaworldatthefort.com or call 815-1888

Wow awesome post! And your photos are so good! Love the place

Going to that place is just like going to a new and innovative dimension of the world. Seems like everything about McKinley Hill is perfect especially the architecture. I love to live in a place like this, it's just so awesome. Here in Korea, there are a lot of buildings with very awesome design too, and I know how it feels to stare at a very nice building especially for people who are very much interested in architecture, let alone frustrated architects...

Carra D said...

Love the photos of the buildings, so colorful and love the architecture design. The grand canal mall looks interesting! One of the things I want to do is visit Italy.

Activities Children said...

Those are great shots of buildings. You have that architect in you! I like the Venetian Canal in Macau.

Lovely spot. I'm such a food, and those pictures make me think that the food alone is a great reason I'd probably like this spot.

Unfortunately MacKinley Hill is very far from where I live. I like the theme of this community, very class and sophisticated.
