We did some catching up with the organizers of Savour: The Ultimate Taste Fest in Metro Tagaytay, and managed to sit down with the good people of Town’s Delight the Caterer and Alta Veranda de Tibig.

For today’s post, we take a closer look at how Alta Veranda de Tibig came to be.

Reminiscing the Past: A Crucial Encounter

Sometimes, there are sudden twists and turns in life that give rise to things we never imagined nor expected. Such is the story of a humble, plain-dealing couple behind one of the most renowned events places in the south today.

Having established a decent livelihood in the construction industry, Noe and Daisy Guevarra would go over their daily business activities dealing with clients and suppliers regarding procurement and supply of various types of construction materials.

Content and diligently doing their established business routine, the Guevarra couple had the good fortune of acquiring a piece of land in Bgy. Tibig, Silang, Cavite. But until the early part of 2013, they didn’t have any concrete plans on how to make use of the real property.

One fateful day, Noe was scheduled to meet with a client somewhere in Trece Martires City – a busy business hub being the provincial capital of Cavite. As it was around lunchtime, he decided to look around for a decent place to dine and take a few moments to relax.

He ended up at a place called Republic of Cavite Restaurant which is owned and managed by Andrew Pacumio, a Caviteño entrepreneur who, as President of Town’s Delight The Caterer, made a respectable name in the Philippine catering arena.

Impressed by the historically-themed ambiance of the restaurant, Noe decided to check out the various areas indoors. Little did he know that his casual walkabout would lead him to Andrew who would habitually meet and greet restaurant guests whenever he’s around.

As casual greetings turned into a more engaging conversation, the incidental acquaintances hit it off and began to share more information about each other’s occupations, passions and preoccupations. It was at this juncture that Noe churned out the life-changing question: what Andrew would suggest on the use of his piece of land in Silang, Cavite.

With a wealth of experience in the catering business in which events places host almost every catered event, Andrew made a crucial suggestion one would naturally expect: that Noe should consider building an events place. And, as the allegorical saying goes, the rest was history.

The birth of Alta Veranda de Tibig

Coinciding with Daisy’s birthday in October 2013, a sprawling events place was inaugurated and given the name ALTA VERANDA DE TIBIG – a fascinating architectural masterpiece of Filipino-Spanish inspiration and reminiscence tucked away in a sprawling 1.2 hectare tract of land in Barangay Tibig, Silang, Cavite.

The name has its origins in the relatively high altitude of the exact spot where the venue was built (as alta in Spanish means high), the awesome verandas that served to beautify the architectural design, and the name of the barangay (Tibig) in which the place is situated.

Without leaving behind their construction materials business, Noe and Daisy began to be more involved in managing this place of gorgeousness in which many intimate affairs would eventually unfold in full splendor soon after its formal opening.

For the Guevarra couple, it was an overwhelming startup that they never imagined would happen.

In the competitive arena in Metro Tagaytay, It stands out as a top-of-mind, aspirational venue most sought after by soon-to-weds who crave for such romantic appeal and quintessential charm that fill the entire expanse of the place.

The Guevarras consider Andrew Pacumio and Town’s Delight bountiful blessings that pointed them in the direction of events place management of phenomenal success. To Noe and Daisy, coming up with an events place was a journey on untested waters, but the nuggets of wisdom, experience-based inspirations and the burning passion provided by Andrew emboldened them to take up the challenge, and they eventually emerged rewarded for their whole-hearted venture.

Their closeness as a couple has been made even more enduring and endearing as they work more closely together in meeting the day-to-day challenges of managing such a place of esteem and prominence.
