Aerial view of Tuilleries Garden in Paris, France

Immersing life in the Splendid Garden of Paris

The Tuilleries Garden composed of various destinations within the area gets its name from the tile factories which previously stood on the site where Queen Catherine de Medici built the Palais des Tuilleries in 1564. The famous gardener of King Louis XIV, André Le Nôtre, re-landscaped the gardens in 1664 to give them their current French formal garden style. The gardens, which separate the Louvre from the Place de la Concorde, are a cultural walking place for Parisians and tourists where Maillol statues stand alongside those of Rodin or Giacometti. The gardens’ two ponds are perfect for relaxation. The Musée de l’Orangerie, where visitors can admire the works of Monet, is located south-west of Tuileries. From March to December, free tours in French are organized. For lovers of candyfloss, rides and thrills, go to the Fête des Tuilleries from June to August.

Louvre Museum Inspires Saint Honore Lifestyle



Louvre Museum by night

World Famous of Art and Culture Museum

The Louvre is the world’s largest museum and houses one of the most impressive art collections in history. The magnificent, baroque-style palace and museum — LeMusée du Louvre in French — sits along the banks of the Seine River in Paris. It is one of the city’s biggest tourist attractions.

The Louvre was originally built as a fortress in 1190, but was reconstructed in the 16th century to serve as a royal palace. It continued to be expanded over the years. It currently covers a total area of 652,300 square feet (60,600 square meters). In 1793, Louis XIV moved the royal residence to Versailles, and the Louvre became an art museum, exhibiting the royal collection and artifacts. Under Napoleon’s reign, acquisitions came from conquered lands and the museum was known as Musée Napoleon. After his defeat at Waterloo, the museum returned to its original name.

The Louvre’s collection includes Egyptian antiques, ancient Greek and Roman sculptures, paintings by the Old Masters, and crown jewels and other artifacts from French nobles. Its works span the sixth century B.C. to the 19th century A.D. More than 35,000 works are on display at any given time. The displays are divided into eight departments:Near Eastern Antiquities, Egyptian Antiquities, Greek, Etruscan and Roman Antiquities, Islamic Art, Sculptures, Decorative Arts, Paintings, and Prints and Drawings.

Without question, The Louvre’s most famous work is Leonardo da Vinci’s “Mona Lisa,” who enchants hordes of visitors with her enigmatic smile. This small, iconic painting — it is only 21 by 30 inches (53 by 77 centimeters) is covered with bullet-proof glass and flanked by guards; this is the result of it being stolen in 1911. (It was recovered in 1913.)

Crowds also flock to see the armless beauty of the “Venus de Milo,” and “Winged Victory,” the ancient Greek sculpture also known as “Nike of Samothrace.” Other popular works include the Code of Hammurabi, da Vinci’s tragic sculpture “The Dying Slave” and Antonio Canova’s 18th-century sculpture “Psyche Revived by Cupid’s Kiss.” Eugene Delacroix’s “Liberty Leading the People,” which depicts the bare-breasted Liberty goddess leading a charge in the French Revolution, and is thought to have inspired Victor Hugo’s “Les Miserables,” andJacques-Louis David’s “The Coronation of Napoleon” was commissioned by Napoleon himself and is a good reminder of the Louvre’s history.


Louvre Museum Pyramid by day

In 1983, the Louvre underwent a renovation plan known as the Grand Louvre. Part of the plan called for a new design for the main entrance. Architect I.M. Pei was awarded the project, and he designed an underground lobby and modern glass pyramid structure in the courtyard. Inaugurated in 1988, the pyramid would become a celebrated element of the landmark museum’s design. It appears strikingly modern and sophisticated against the baroque façade, and allows light into the lobby, which also houses gift shops and cafes. In 1993, the Inverted Pyramid, a skylight dipping into the underground lobby, was unveiled. Because of its size and the scale of its collection, it is impossible to see the entirety of the Louvre in one visit. The museum reported about 8.8 million visitors in 2011 — so prepare for crowds, especially around the most popular works.

The museum offers a variety of tools to help visitors plan their days, including the “Masterpieces Visitor Trail,” timed at about 90 minutes and covering the 10 most famous works, maps of floor plans and advanced ticket options.

The Louvre is open every day but Tuesday and the following holidays: Christmas Day, New Year’s Day, and International Workers’ Day (May 1). The hours are: Monday, Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Wednesday and Friday from 9 a.m. to 9:45 p.m.

There are three entrances to the Louvre. Though the most famous is the Pyramid and Galerie du Carrousel entrances, lines may be shorter at the Passage Richelieu or Porte des Lions entrances.

As of 2013, admission to the entire museum costs 15 euros. Admission is free for those under 18, as well as other individuals with proper documentation.


Artsy and classy, Saint Honore’s Reception Area and Main Lobby

Lifestyle Inspired by French Art

In Iloilo City, Philippines, a classy 10-storey residential tower takes the front row of lifestyle culture at Iloilo Business Park, Megaworld’s biggest commercial township in Western Visayas.

The tower has a total of 168 condominium units, from executive studio, one bedroom and two bedroom unit, each of these space of luxury comes with a vision for pure French living style.


Splendid and gorgeous, Saint Honore’s Third Level Amenity Deck

But the closer resemblance to the world-famous Louvre Museum of Paris is Saint Honore’s Reception Area and Main Lobby, a collective beauty and charm of various elements of French art. From artsy floor design, pieces of artworks hanged in the colourful walls, sparkling chandelier, sculptures, expensive furniture set and the over-all appeal of the area is a passionate inspiration of the Louvre Museum.

Tea Story soon at Iloilo Business Park


Tea has been around for millenia. Through that time, the Chinese have drunk it for everything from hangover prevention to weight control and common cold reduction. Now, modern scientific research has given us a much better insight into how tea improves health and to what benefit.

True tea, or that from the Camellia sinensis plant, includes white, green, oolong, black and pu-erh. All of them contain antioxidants, catechins, and polyphenols, which positively impact our bodies.

Let’s dive into what the research shows about tea and its health benefits.

  1. Lowered cholesterol

Media-favorite green tea was found to help lower cholesterol, both total serum cholesterol and LDL, according to a meta-study published June 2011 in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. Most sources suggest five cups per day will provide results, but multiple studies have shown that higher consumption leads to the biggest drop in cholesterol.

Tea is thought to work by inhibiting the absorption of cholesterol from the large intestine. Among the Chinese, pu-erh tea is the most renowned in its ability to lower cholesterol, though only minimal clinical research has investigated this traditional belief.

  1. Blindness prevention

Since tea contains high levels of antioxidants, it is not surprising that studies have found them in eye tissue. In fact, drinking tea can help to prevent the blindness caused by cataracts (the clouding of the lens inside the eye), said a 2001 study.

  1. Reduced cortisol levels

Cortisol is the stress hormone that contributes to belly fat and makes your skin age quicker. One recent study suggested four cups of tea per day may make your cortisol levels spike less.

If you’re looking to have cortisol levels drop back down to normal faster after a stressful event, a 2006 study suggested daily consumption of tea for six weeks will do just that (as compared to placebo).

Both studies found that tea consumption may reduce the impact of cortisol, thus slowing the aging process and preventing the widening of your mid-section.

  1. Anti-inflammatory

Active compounds in tea can help to lower levels of inflammation and inflammatory reactions. According to Dr. Mark Hyman, inflammation is connected to almost every modern ailment, including arthritis, metabolic syndrome, and depression. Inflammation can also cause you to retain water and look puffy, so a few cups of tea can help you look and feel thinner.

Want a healthier heart? A 2007 study indicated the lower inflammation levels resulting from green tea consumption may help to protect against cardiovascular disease.

  1. Increased memory, focus & concentration

Extensive research has shown that the combination of caffeine and L-Theanine, a naturally-occurring amino acid found in tea, improves reaction time and memory, while increasing focus and concentration (think of monks meditating).

Go for a cup of tea — perhaps white tea — before a meeting when you need to be sharp, or drink it during a test for increased concentration and focus.

  1. Anti-allergen

With spring coming up, now is time to start searching for your favorite tea. Why? A 2007 Japanese study found that the tea polyphenol, EGCG, may be helpful for reducing pollen allergies. Tea may also reduce allergic response through quercetin, a flavonol naturally-occurring in tea, which is known to mitigate histamine response.

Yes, you can add locally produced honey to your tea to double-up the anti-allergy power.

  1. Decreased risk of stroke

Drinking at least three cups of green or black tea per day results in a 21% reduction in the risk of ischemic stroke, according to 2009 meta-studys. Start your tea habit now, to begin protecting yourself earlier.

  1. Reduced risk of dementia

To stay sharp, even as you age, drink tea, as it is thought to lower the risk of dementia by acting through multiple pathways, including those of nerve synapses and blood sugar regulation. A 2011 study also found that tea acts on brain theta waves to improve memory and increase attention span — yet another reason to start drinking tea early in life.

  1. Improved overall health markers

Tea drinkers tend to be healthier, which proves true in research too, as tea drinking correlates with better health outcomes.

You can support your health, including your skin and body composition, with as few as 2-3 cups per day of this calorie-free, sugar-free drink, so join this growing health movement and start today exploring the novelty of tea.

It’s time to sip a cup of tea and be inspired for life when you visit Iloilo Business Park very soon this September. This exceptional business township has a lot to offer when it comes to lifestyle inspiration. Like having a cup of tea for priceless health benefits, this vibrant township inspires you to live an enriching lifestyle that combines wellness, serenity and passion.
