Gary and Cynthia Pabalan are lifetime partners in love and in business. The successful husband and wife team behind Kid Cycle, a chain of motorcycle spare parts and accessories stores, agree on many things�including their choice for a new home. After scrutinizing various subdivisions and new developments in the Metro Sta. Rosa area, the obvious choice for them became South Forbes Golf City's Bali Mansions.
The strategically located property by developer Cathay Land is envisioned to be a complete �satellite city� combining both the charm of the country and the advancements of a bustling metropolis. While having a panoramic view of the mountains and the rolling hills of the south, it is near schools, churches, entertainment and leisure establishments, shopping areas, technoparks and business institutions. It also has all the modern facilities for a safer, more productive and healthier family living.
Gary, a doting father to their kids Jayson, Angel and Patty, lists safety and security as the main reasons why he favored the decision to move to South Forbes. The busy owner of two retail stores and one wholesale outlet worries about his wife and children whenever he stays late at work or goes overseas.
�The safety and security of my children is my number one priority. At South Forbes you have to pass through several security points before you can enter. Especially since I go on business trips for as long as a week, I want to be able to feel that my family will be okay whenever I leave,� he comments.
Gary is also excited by the fact that their new home comes with a free membership to the South Forbes Golf and Leisure Club, an elite golf club designed by Asia's leading golf course designer � the International Management Group (IMG) -- and complete with all the leisure facilities that a family needs. He has just recently purchased golf equipment to give him a headstart.
For Cynthia, however, South Forbes holds its allure because of the charming and peaceful surroundings. Bali Mansions is inspired by the magnificent Balinese architecture that speaks of Asian warmth and natural beauty. A house in Bali Mansions is an ideal place for their children to grow, because it is bigger and more open.
�I like the ambiance of the place. We can enjoy nature because there are many trees here. I'd like to be able to come home at the end of the day to a relaxing place,� she says.
She adds that when the time comes when they make Bali Mansions their new home, their neighbors will have the same interests and stature such as theirs and their children. Like them, their neighbors will want to have safety and security in an environment that will shape their children to become good and healthy citizens.
What made the decision to pick South Forbes as the Pabalan's new nest was made easier by the fact that all their three kids love the place. Apart from being very near to their schools, the growing kids with ages 17, 15 and 14 like the bigger space that the Bali Mansions afforded them. Plus, they can also have more of their friends come for sleepovers, studying for exams or working on group projects.
Gary and Cynthia Pabalan have made their choice to live in South Forbes as their best decision ever. With this new home, they become not only lifetime partners in love and in business, they are also partners in raising a happy family.
