CHRISTMAS MESSAGE BOARD FORM THE STAFF OF THE HERITAGE HOTEL MANILA



If Santa grants you a million pesos as a Christmas gift,  
how will you spend it?






If Santa will grant me a million pesos as a Christmas gift, the first thing I will do is thank God and Santa because that’s what I really wish for.  How will
I spend it?  First, I will settle all my financial obligations and then save some for my children’s education.  I will also give a portion of that money to a non-government organization as a donation not only for the victims of typhoons but also for the less fortunate.  I will also spend a special Christmas with my family and friends and of course, with my Laundry family.

Grace M. Alvarez
Laundry





“If Santa grants me a million pesos I will gather all the street children in our hometown (Muntinlupa), bring them in toy kingdom and let them choose whatever toys they would want and after that I’ll give them a wonderful party with all the mascots of Jollibee , with face painting , marvelous games, and prizes to make them feel the Christmas spirit and also to make them feel that they are loved.”

Geraldine E. Aquino
Housekeeping



Thank you so much that I will have 1 million pesos and since it is yuletide season and a time to share the blessings I wont be stingy because it is given to me heartedly by Santa to spend.  Half million I will give to the poor and the half will goes to my immediate family.
Angel Asi
Sales

If Santa would grant me one million cash as a Christmas gift, I would give half of it to my parents as gratitude to everything that they have done for me through out these years. Then I would invest some of it in putting up my own business. Lastly, I will share it to charity and save some at the bank.

Joyce Paguia
Catering





“ What a generous Santa! … If he’ll give me a million peso, I will spend it to the less fortunate people. We all know that our country suffered from typhoon and there are a lot of people who are affected. In a little way I want to share it with them”
Karl Fortaleza
Kitchen



Many staff would say, they will fund their 1M for their house and lot, others will travel abroad , for those who got house already, they will buy another house, for those who were affected by typhoon - will buy rubber boat instead car.

For Riviera & Banquets Staff - they will divide amongst themselves to buy Christmas Noche Buena for their families.

If its for the whole department - we will close Enchanted Kingdom, get a caterer for 3 meals, invite each employee with their immediate family to spend the whole day there with food and  give aways to take home. We will book Island Cove for overnight stay for all families. Of course, 10% of which will be donated to charity for Christmas.

How I wish this will be real!

Best Regards,
Gladys E. Biala
Food and Beverage Manager



Honestly, we wouldn’t like to spend the one million peso- gift from Santa. Maybe, we would just save or invest it in a business for more significant use in the future. But if Santa wouldn’t allow keeping the money and must be spent in a day; we would sponsor a grand family getaway for Heritage employees to Palawan or Singapore. Better yet, it would be added as a Christmas gift (bonus) equally distributed to all employees.

MICHAEL JACKSON TRIBUTE CONCERT AT THE HERITAGE HOTEL MANILA

Ms. Gigi Gaw, Director of Sales and Marketing 
and Ms. Chiara King, Sales Manager.



“This is it or isn’t it?” Michael Jackson rocked the house and wowed the crowd at a spectacular live concert at the Heritage Hotel Manila’s Grand Ballroom on October 21, 2009, or at least his best known impersonator - the multi-awarded Las Vegas talent Kenny Whiz did amaze guests with his looks, swagger, hip swaying, crotch-clutching and signature fancy moonwalking dance moves packed with panache.

Whiz’s performance was as close to having Michael Jackson in the flesh as he performed top of the charts favorites together with the MJ Dancers: “Smooth Criminal,” “Jam,” “Scream,” “Human Nature,” “Black and White,” “Billy Jean,” “Beat It,” “Remember the Time,” “Man in the Mirror,” “They Don’t Care About Us.”


He capped the concert on a high note as he sang and danced the quintessential Michael Jackson record-breaking pop hit “Thriller.” He made a blazing hot performance of the iconic Thriller steps complete with zombies in the background.
 Wizz has starred in the Michael Jackson tribute concert for almost a decade at the Las Vegas strip. His striking profile and voice resemblance with Michael Jackson has landed him a part in the movie “This Is It,” a film documentary on Michael Jackson’s final rehearsals and preparation for a concert.

Mercy Relief teams partnered with Millennium & Copthorne International to provide disaster relief to typhoon Ondoy victims



Heritage Hotel Manila works hand in hand with Singapore based Mercy Relief to organize and provide relief goods to displaced families and flood victims living near manila’s creek side.







Singapore –based NGO Relief, led by Chief Executive Hassan Ahmad, along with volunteers, with the THHM Executives Ms. Lyn Sy, Director of Finance; Mr. Lawrence Wee, Resident Manager; Ms. Grazie Magsalin, Director of Human Resources;  Ms. Mina Gervacio, Marcom Manager; Ms. Gigi Gaw, Director of Sales & Marketing; Ms. Eli Nilo, Executive Housekeeper.



Singaporean humanitarian NGO, Mercy Relief (MR), together with Singapore-based Millennium & Copthorne International Limited (MCIL), answered the urgent call for aid to victims of Typhoon Ondoy (Ketsana) in Metro Manila.

MCIL through it’s The Heritage Hotel Manila worked with the Mercy Relief disaster response team to distribute relief supplies and provide ground assessment for future relief engagement. The Heritage Hotel also provided accommodation for the Mercy Relief volunteer team during the five-day mission.

Since the disaster struck, staff of the Heritage Hotel Manila have been raising money to supplement MR’s stock of relief supplies and they have volunteered to support Mercy Relief’s distribution exercise at the Paco
Convent in Manila where they gave out food packs to communities living near the creeks.

Mr Eddie Yeo, General Manager of the Heritage Hotel, said, “In the aftermath of typhoon Ondoy’s devastating effects to human life and property, The Heritage Hotel Manila team demonstrated the Bayanihan spirit, a Filipino trait that shows willingness to help alleviate the plight of fellowmen directly impacted by the disaster.”

“Our Hotel’s Relief Operations Committee raised funds and pooled together basic necessities such as grocery items, bottled water and clothes among the entire staff in order to provide immediate relief to fellow
staff and other typhoon victims in key localities who were directly impacted by the typhoon and whose homes and properties were wreaked and inundated,” said Mr Yeo. “Though our efforts may seem small, we aim to bring hope and renewal to those in need of aid.”

MCIL is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Millennium & Copthorne Hotels plc, which is controlled by the Hong Leong Group. The Group has been supporting Mercy Relief’s humanitarian efforts since 2008 when the organization funded the reconstruction and expansion of one primary school costing S$200,000 in Wolong County, Sichuan, China, following the Wenchuan earthquake last year.

Commenting on the MR-MCIL collaboration, MR Chief Executive, Hassan Ahmad explained, “The corporate sector is playing an increasingly important role in the humanitarian industry. This is the second time that the Hong Leong Group and its affiliate companies are providing early and unreserved support to Mercy Relief in attending to a major disaster, the first being the Wenchuan earthquake relief. ”

“Our network of Millennium & Copthorne hotels across the region has allowed us to pull together our resources quickly to offer some assistance to the victims,” said MCIL Chief Operating Officer, Mr Yim Choong Hing. “Working together with Mercy Relief is one meaningful way that we can contribute. We hope that our efforts will go some way to see them through this tragedy.”

The Heritage Hotel Manila is managed by Millennium & Copthorne International with more than 120 hotels worldwide.

HERITAGE HOTEL LOBBY LOUNGE – THE PERFECT BACKDROP FOR LOVERS IN PARIS DRAMA SERIES, ABS-CBN 2 PHILIPPINE VERSION


Who wouldn’t fall in love with the modern re-telling of Cinderella cloaked in Korean drama - Lovers in Paris? It’s too much of good thing that it raked in a phenomenal record-breaking feat in Korea with a monumental 57% in ratings.

Inspired by this success, ABS-CBN 2 and TFC (The Filipino Channel) recently produced and aired its much-anticipated version of Lovers in Paris starring Piolo Pascual and Kaycee Concepcion and Zanjoe Marudo. In the TV series, Vivian (Kaycee Concepcion) is a struggling film student in Paris. Carlo (PioloPascual) is the President of GD Motors. Martin (Zanjoe Marudo) is the rebel without a cause cousin of Carlo. Vivian and Carlo met in Paris when Vivian worked as cleaner to Carlo’s mansion. On the other hand, Martin’s heart was struck the first moment he saw Vivian in awe of the Eiffel Tower. As Vivian struggles in her job, Carlo asks her to pretend to be his fiance in a dinner meeting. On the other hand Martin tries unsuccessfully to reveal his feelings for Vivian. And the romance and conflict blossom in Paris and until their paths cross again in Manila…

One of the most romantic scenes wherein Carlo professed his love and devotion for Vivian was shot at the opulent Lobby Lounge of Heritage Hotel.
