3 October 2014

The environment inspired events that took place last Saturday, saw a large turnout converging at the Metropark Property Gallery for a day of fun-filled, informative and energetic activities under the theme "A Start to Green Living". The first of four consecutive and exciting green-inspired Saturdays began with Tropicana marketing and sales executive director Pam Loh addressing the crowd. "Tropicana believes that healthy living starts from home. We always strive to give our customers something that is more than just a home. We deliver a lifestyle to our customers... one that is balanced, that promotes wellbeing and provides plenty of lush open spaces.

Calling on those at the carnival to partake in the line-up of exciting "green" activities the day had in store, Loh also urged the crowd to consider "not just purchasing a house, but making a home with Tropicana". The first of three more inspiring, engaging and informative Saturdays saw 14 of Tropicana Metropark's purchasers planting a tree each -the first to become the green sea of nature that will form the lush 9.2-acre Central Park. Award-winning design and landscape architectural firm, Walrus, delivered an informational talk Free health screening and tests were carried out by Klinik Kecheerian staff while individuals representing social enterprises and NGOs delivered inspiring talks on environmental issues and concerns.

There was also a presentation by Beverly Wilshire Medical Centre personnel, titled Beauty Skin Deep. A showcase of vintage cars and "green features" entertained, along with Melony, the carnival mascot and Ixora Ang, the green carnival ambassador. Many were seen making their way up the modular viewing deck to get a panoramic glimpse of the progress of the Tropicana Metropark project construction. With 98% of Tropicana Metropark's first phase project Paloma Residences already sold and 65% of its second phase Pandora Residences taken up and going fast, interested parties are urged to visit the gallery for more information or to make a booking.
