Pro-Friends celebrating their 15th anniversary

PRO-FRIENDS’ celebrates its crystal year


 Last November 16,2013,Media and fellow bloggers were all present at Romulo’s Cafe,Makati with Profriends- A fast growing company in real estate celebrating their 15th anniversary next year.


Continuously creating communities and transforming lives On to its 15th year in the property development industry, Property Company of Friends, Inc. (PRO-FRIENDS) has been consistent in its mission: to be a trusted developer in building homes and communities. Through the years, PRO-FRIENDS has evolved from building small housing developments to establishing a 1000-hectare community and other major estate developments mostly located in Cavite. Currently, PRO-FRIENDS has completed 15 successful communities and has 11 on-going projects including Parc Regency Greens, a nature-inspired community, first of its kind in Iloilo and the very first vertical property development set amidst the prestigious New Manila and Greenhills area that is the Ilustrata Residences. Aside from Iloilo, PRO-FRIENDS also expanded its roots to the North with the Palms Lakeshore. It continues to amplify its projects to different regions in the South and plans to be one of the top developers in the country offering quality yet affordable homes for the Filipinos.


PRO-FRIENDS continues its promise of building not only homes, but a complete community for the homeowners of their developments. Most of its projects offer amenities that redefine the lifestyle of families living inside their communities. From clubhouses with swimming pools to multipurpose halls, PRO-FRIENDS is the first to introduce the linear park and family courtyard – open spaces for families to enjoy picnics, games and other recreational bonding activities. A proof to this “complete community” campaign is PRO-FRIENDS’ flagship project in Cavite, Lancaster New City. Among its amenities are: the Leighton Hall, a multipurpose hall where you can host your parties; Church of the Holy Family, where you can celebrate the weekly mass; St. Edward’s Integrated School (SEIS), where you can give your children quality education right within your neighborhood; Lancaster Square, a 6 hectare commercial complex for the residents’ and guests’ shopping and dining pleasure; and the first IT business park to house BPO companies so your work is just a walk away from home. Other amenities include the swimming pool, multipurpose courts and soon to be constructed pocket amenities inside the villages for the residents’ use.


One unique characteristic of PRO-FRIENDS is its commitment to transform the lives of the people within and outside their communities. Corporate Communication campaigns like seminars about livelihood, arts, emergency preparedness and waste management are being done and conducted to educate the homeowners and promote camaraderie.

Early this year, PRO-FRIENDS kicked off its crystal year with “Run For E-learning” dedicated to sponsor e-learning facilities for schools and “PRO-FRIENDS Ka Rin Ba?” an online video contest with a house and lot prize for the grand winner. PRO-FRIENDS continues to take part in community building as it continues to organize activities like these, opening doors of possibilities for the Filipino people.

Tenda Launches Three New routers in the Philippines

Press Release:

TENDA,a new kid on the block in the wireless distribution system in the Philippines, is set to impress the consumers with its easy-to-install units and reliable data connection of up to300 Mbps.

The company introduces three new exciting models in the Philippine market-the W3002R, W309R+ and FH303.

According to Charlie Jiang, company sales manager for the Philippines, TENDA is set to win the competition against other wireless solution brands in the market.

“TENDA’s edge against the other routers are, it is easy to set up or install and its parts are made by Broadcom chipset company (famous WIFI chipset maker in the world),” Jiang said.

Jiang explained that TENDA’s edge over competitors does not stop at providing quality routers but, extends to after sales services.

“The guaranty time for TENDA routers in the Philippines is two years since the date when the customers bought it from the authorized dealer’s stores,” Jiang said.



Jiang added that should customers come across a defective unit, technical support can be easily reached through the hotline.

“If there is any problem about the hardware, the customers just have to consult our dealer’s technicians to solve it, Jiang said.

“If the technician cannot troubleshoot the problem, the dealer will send that unit back to our distributor BELEXIS then our engineers will test the RMA unit first and then try to fix it or replace it in 7-15 days according to the problem,” Jiang said.

Jiang promises to bring the finest internetconnection experience in the office and at home for TENDA customers.


“The purpose of TENDA Philippines company is just to let the Filipinos enjoy surfing the wireless network easier by using our easy set top TENDA router in an affordable price and good service ” .Jiang said.

Sharing the best data experience with W3002R and FH303

W309R+ and FH303 is the perfect combo to heighten the data connection experience that hits 300 Mbps and provides the widest area coverage.



Jiang explained  theW3002R is a powerful wireless solution made for home and office use that offers reliable internet connection for faster downloads.

“W3002R is the advanced 300Mbps router with new nice design, high power router, its coverage is two times wider than the normal 300Mbps router,” Jiang said.

TENDA-W3002R has detachable antennas that use the universal repeater technology which allows wider area coverage, better performance and enhanced compatibility.

Security issues have also been resolved with the W3002 as it offers multi-level encryption options to prevent unauthorized access to safeguard important data.

FH303, on the other hand, resolves dead spot troubles at home and in the office that slows down fun and work.

As TENDA is committed to customer satisfaction, the FH303 is made to deliver quality internet connectivity with a push of a button.

“FH303 is also a high power router with a button on the rear side ,that can adjust the router ‘s performance mode to be normal signal or high signal mode,: Jiang explain

“When the router is working in normal signal mode,it also can save the energy ,we call this

as the green energy saving,” he added.

Two rear side buttons can be found on the unit. The first button allows users to adjust wireless signal effectively and conveniently while the second button serves as security lock.

Other features of this model include several filters like bandwidth control, MacAddress clone, remote web management and system log.

“These models belong to the high power router series ,for the high power router with two

antennas , we recommend W3002R while for the high power router with three antennas , we recommend FH303 ,” Jiang said.

FH303 comes in elegant white with three antennas which secures reliable internet connection.

No more deadspots at home with W309R+

One of the highlights of TENDA wireless solution technology is affordability and quality and that is exactly what the W309R+ has to offer.

Customers are in for a great deal with the last, but not the least, on the roster of the newly launched router models with its competitive market price and potent features.

According to Jiang, W309R+ can increase data connectivity at home up to300 Mbps that can work with broadband internet connection.

”W309R+ is the high power 300 Mbps router with two 9 dBi antennas,” he said.

This model can share with multiple computers considering the limits of a broadband internet connection.

Since not every household has a “techie” member, the W309R+ comes with an easy setup utility that makes it easy for family members to set up the unit.

This affordable model is more than its price worth when it comes with added features like the enhanced wireless distribution system which allows customers to set up a wireless communication between two or more routers in the area.

Despite its ability to connect to several routers, the W309R+ does not compromise the security of data of its users as it is equipped with a multi-level encryption feature.

Hollywood picked up on the Police lifestyle trend in the late 1990’s and early 2000’s. Global brand ambassadors such as Bruce Willis, George Clooney, David Beckham and Antonio Banderas brought their own unique appeal to Police. The youth also became a focal point of the brand, when Police launched its Be Younique campaign in 2010.

Following the footsteps of popular Police brand ambassadors, Police has also tapped three local talents to represent the Police lifestyle in the Philippines.these three ambassadors were selected as they embody what Police is all about.

Young, cutting edge and adored by many, actor Will Devaughn,
