Suntrust welcomes its new homeowners, Yamyam, Kiara and Yen

Napatunayan ko na sa aking sarili na kahit sa kahirapan kaya nating bumangon sa buhay. Kaya nating humarap sa ano mang hamon sa buhay. Maraming, maraming salamat at hindi po ako nag-iisa,” --- these were the triumphant words echoed by Yamyam Gucong, a simple Boholano who emerged as the Ultimate Big winner of Pinoy Big Brother Otso last August 4.


It started with a dream for Yamyam - to be able to provide for his family. Living in the province, Yamyam became accustomed to the simple life. Due to poverty and lack of resources, their house is just made of light materials but it did not stop him from wanting more. For every Filipino’s heart, Home has always been a shelter, haven, a place to gather, providing escape from the busyness and intrusiveness of the world.This was also the goal that fuelled Yamyam’s determination. 


And now dreams turn to reality as he receives a brand new condominium unit from Suntrust Properties, Inc. at Suntrust Asmara. Aside from him, two other PBB Otso housemates get to own their new homes. For this season, Suntrust also granted a brand new condominium unit for 2nd Big Placer Kiara Takahashi – a JaPinoy who’s currently living with her Dad in La Union. During her stay in Japan, she and her mother don’t have a permanent residence. That is no longer true for Kiara here in the Philippines. The third condominium unit was awarded to Teen housemate Yen Quirante from Naga who showed the value of enduring a difficult task. Yamyam, Kiara, and Yen’s hardwork, patience, and perseverance paid off with each having a new home, a new beginning for their family.


On August 20, 2019, Yamyam, Kiara and Yen became official condominium owners during the turnover of their respective units. Present were the Suntrust executives and staff who warmly welcomed an emotional trio to their new homes. Aside from the comfort and security, Suntrust Asmara is in a prime location where markets, hospital, schools and more are just nearby.

Like the three, future homeowners of Suntrust Asmara can appreciate the advantage of a comfortable lifestyle with its finest amenities which will include lap and kiddie pools, lounge areas, pool deck, kid’s play area, a Zen garden, jogging paths, fitness gym, gazebo-type multipurpose area, function rooms, sky garden and a reception lobby for every tower.

For over 20 years, Suntrust Properties, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Megaworld Corp has been a frontrunner in building quality and affordably priced homes in strategic locations for the Filipino family. From acquiring Stateland, Inc. , it has now become the official home of Pinoy Big Brother Otso.

After their stint in Kuya’s House, Yamyam, Kiara and Yen will surely be ready for their new adventure outside with their loved ones by their side in a loving place they will call home. Truly, Suntrust is the Home for every Filipino.
