What SMDC Stars Kim CHIU and Gwen Ruais want for the Holiday Season!

Top young actress Kim Chiu and Miss World 2011 First Princess Gwendoline Ruais graced the recently held SM Development Corporation-Quezon City 3rd International Marathon (SMDC-QCIM). M Place brand ambassador Kim Chiu joined the five-kilometer run, while Gwendoline Ruais campaigned for SMDC’s premier residential properties in Quezon City.  

 Young, independent and hardworking, Kim shot to stardom after winning in a local TV show in 2006. She now has a number of blockbuster films, top-rating TV series, magazine covers and endorsements under her belt. This Christmas, Kim only wishes for a break from her busy schedule to do the things she loves doing. “I want to bond with my family and have some time to decorate my house,” shared Kim. “I look forward to beautifying my home with pink, purple and fluffy stuff.”

M Place makes it easy for young achievers like Kim to customize their condo units according to their taste and style. It also allows them to invest in their own spaces at an early age as the price range of each unit is within their reach.

Another great advantage for homeowners is the convenience of living next door to their places of work, as well as to lifestyle destinations such as malls, dining places and night life hotspots. M Place @ South Triangle is just a few steps away from the top TV networks, making it a convenient home for Kim and young professionals her age who work in the entertainment industry. For yuppies working in Ortigas, the new M Place @ Ortigas is located just minutes away from the central business district (CBD).

For Gwendoline Ruais, 2011 was one blessed year, after placing first runner-up at the Miss World beauty pageant; more opportunities came knocking on her door. “Apart from my Miss World duties, I’m also very excited to try my hand at hosting. Plus, I have a one-year contract with GMA Network.”

This Christmas, Gwendoline also looks forward to some family time. “I’ve been so busy since coming home from the pageant in November that I hardly see my family anymore,” she said. “We’re very tight-knit. We especially love traveling together, but we couldn’t go on trips that often anymore because we’re always busy.”

As part of her prize in winning the Miss World Philippines 2011 title, the French-Filipina beauty was awarded a fully-furnished SMDC condominium unit. “I’m really looking forward to moving in to my SMDC unit,” Gwendoline said. “SMDC condos have great amenities that make you feel like you’re living in a resort. My family and I don’t have to travel far to enjoy a wonderful view or lounge by the pool. SMDC brings all these luxuries closer to us city dwellers.”
