Alabang Hills Village Releases Official Guidelines on In-Village Rotunda Driving

In a follow-up to what was previously announced about rotunda driving inside the village, the Alabang Hills Village Association (AHVA) recently released official guidelines of the matter online. The new regulations have since gone into effect while the imposition of fines will be formally implemented on December 1, 2022.

To put things in perspective, posted below is an excerpt from the AHVA’s official announcement with the guidelines in PDF file (which contains images of the rotundas) for your downloading. Some parts in boldface…

Please find below a flyer detailing our Rotunda Driving Regulations. These regulations go into effect immediately. Between now and November 30, violators will be apprehended but not fined. We will begin imposing fines on December 1. The applicable fines, as contained in our Vehicle Sticker Application Form, are as follows:

1). Traffic violations: disregarding traffic signs, speeding, reckless driving, unauthorized parking, driving without license or with expired license, unregistered vehicle:

First Offense P500.00

Second Offense P1,000.00

Third Offense: P2,000.00

2). Disobedience / arrogance / refusal to follow village regulations & traffic policies:

First Offense P500.00

Second Offense P700.00

Third Offense P1000.00 & banned from AHVA

We will continue to post Security Guards at the rotundas every day but only up to November 30. Beginning December 1, when the penalties will go into effect, we will switch from ‘on-the-spot in-person apprehension’ to using our CCTV cameras located at every rotunda. We will notify violators caught on CCTV to show cause why they should not be penalized. We will send “show cause” notices via email as well as via hard copies delivered to their homes in the case of residents.

Residents can also report violations straight to the guards or to the Security Office, citing the date, time, and location of the violation, and if possible, the license plate number, make, and color of the vehicle in case CCTV footage may be unclear.

From time to time, Security Guards will be positioned at the rotundas to reinforce compliance.

This announcement by the AVHA is very timely as more vehicles have been entering and/or passing through their village in relation to the ongoing classes at a big school inside, going to churches for on-site worship, having to reach other communities outside of Alabang Hills Village, and so on. Also, Alabang Hills will be hosting the Nutcracker Christmas Bazaar which is scheduled to take place in three consecutive full weekends! The said bazaar is expecting to attract a lot of visitors looking for items to buy as Christmas gifts, and there are also fun-related activities included which should encourage people to spend more time on-site. Lastly, there will be more Christmas parties expected to happen in households this December. All of these mean that in-village vehicular traffic will grow and you should not forget the new rules whenever you are about to drive by the rotundas.

For inquiries about this new development, visit https://alabanghillsvillage.com/ or call them at 88508254. You can visit their office at 1 Don Jesus Boulevard inside Alabang Hills Village from Monday to Friday, 8AM to 5PM. Always remember to follow their rules and speed limits whenever you are in the village. Be aware also of the recent in-village traffic adjustments and if you are a non-resident motorist who needs a new car sticker from AHVA, you can apply online.

By the time you are reading this, you must have noticed the sudden number of bazaars and local community events that happened around since October. The Megarahe Sale inside Alabang Hills Village was successful while the Noel Bazaar this past weekend at Filinvest Tent attracted customers. The local communities, the enterprises, the consumers and the nation are indeed rising from the economic downturn of the COVID-19.

As Christmas is nearing, the Alabang Hills Village Association (AHVA) officially announced that they will be hosting Christmas shopping bazaars set to happen over three consecutive weekends this December. The event is officially called the Nutcracker Christmas Bazaar and the exciting news is that people are invited to attend it as there will be vendors selling lots of products and food, plus some notable fun events.

To put things in perspective, posted below is an excerpt from the AHVA’s official announcement. Some parts in boldface…

We are delighted to announce that we will again be holding a Christmas bazaar this December! Dubbed “Nutcracker Christmas Bazaar”, the festive event will draw on the theme of Tchaikovsky’s world-famous Christmas ballet, “The Nutcracker”.

The bazaar will open on Friday, the 2nd of December and will run for three consecutive weekends: December 2-4, 9-11, and 16-18. Bazaar hours will be from 9:00 AM to 9:00 PM every day of the 9-day bazaar. Venue will be the entire AHV Phase 2 Park.

Come to the Nutcracker Christmas Bazaar and enjoy

• CHRISTMAS TREE & BAZAAR LIGHTING CEREMONY on December 2, 6:00 PM,

The bazaar’s fun highlights will include Bingo & Raffle Afternoons, Dance, Food, Magic, Music, and more!

Entrance to the bazaar is free! Invite your friends and relatives and let’s together make this a fun and memorable community Christmas celebration! A portion of the proceeds from the bazaar will go to the beneficiary of the AHV Christmas Outreach Program.

Indeed, the Christmas season is already here and if you are looking for things to buy for Christmas gift-giving or buy something you need, then Alabang Hills’ Nutcracker Christmas Bazaar is something you should consider. With three consecutive full weekends set, there will be opportunities for you and your friends to attend and have fun. The Nutcracker Christmas Bazaar is the first Christmas bazaar to be held inside Alabang Hills Village in the last few years. Truly, the AHVA and its strategic partners and bazaar organizers are going big-time this December with the 3-weekend bazaar.

UPDATE: Here is the video I took during the opening day of the Nutcracker Christmas Bazaar on December 2, 2022.

Before you engage in Christmas shopping and having fun, always remember that Christmas is always all about Lord Jesus and it is to be rejoiced with Him. Thank the Lord for the continued revival of the Philippines from the downturn of COVID-19. Thank the Lord that more people have gotten vaccinated/boosted for COVID-19, that the local businesses and customers are more confident to interact with each other face-to-face, and that the Philippines is moving beyond the pandemic. Thank the Lord for the Nutcracker Christmas Bazaar and the many fun activities scheduled!

New Rotunda Traffic Regulations and Road Signs in Alabang Hills Village to be Implemented

In its newest effort on controlling traffic flow and improving safety inside its village, the Alabang Hills Village Association (AHVA) announced recently that new rotunda traffic and road signs pertaining to the rotundas will be implemented soon.

To put things in perspective, posted below is an excerpt from the AHVA’s official announcement. Some parts in boldface…

As you must have noticed, a few weeks ago we started putting up new road signs for the proper management of rotunda traffic. We have personally observed, and some of us have been involved in, near-misses because of motorists who do not slow down, or worse, do not yield to rotunda traffic when they should.

In view of these incidences, we have decided to adopt international/LTO regulations governing the use of rotundas. We have also adopted international road signs for the management of traffic in rotundas and, have made modifications to these road signs to make them more explicit and direct, knowing that many drivers in the country do not know how to drive when approaching or when in a rotunda. FYI, the correct, international/LTO action for drivers to take when approaching a rotunda is to YIELD TO VEHICLES ALREADY IN THE ROTUNDA. It is NOT to make a full stop. YIELDING MAY REQUIRE ONE TO MAKE A FULL STOP, but it is not a requirement to make a full stop when there are no vehicles in the rotunda.

Note: pedestrians ALWAYS have right of way over any vehicle.

More road signs, including signs painted on roads, will be added in the coming weeks. Where applicable, previous “FULL STOP” signs painted on roads at rotundas will be replaced by painted “YIELD” signs.

On Friday last week, the Security Force, led by Board Director Admiral Rommel Galang, conducted a lecture among village tricycle drivers on the rules and etiquette of rotunda driving. More approaches to educate residents and non-residents will be implemented in the future.

Once all the road signs are complete and in place, we will issue a bulletin officially announcing our new rotunda traffic regulations. Seven (7) days after these new rotunda regulations are announced, we will begin strict enforcement of the regulations.

For the newcomers reading this, Alabang Hills Village in Barangay Cupang, Muntinlupa City has rotundas within its territory. Anyone coming into the village from Tirona street of BF Homes subdivision will see a rotunda immediately (Don Manolo Boulevard corner Don Jesus Boulevard) just past the shared AHVA-BF Homes gate. It should be noted that the AHVA implemented new traffic measures this past August and they are implementing new speed bumps lately. Their revived Megarahe Sale attracted a lot of people.

For the non-residents reading this, if you need a new vehicular sticker (or stickers for bicycles and motorcycles), then you better apply online immediately by clicking https://alabanghillsvillage.com/sticker/. Also be aware of the enforcement of the “No sticker, no entry” policy towards non-residents.

For inquiries about this new development, visit https://alabanghillsvillage.com/ or call them at 88508254. You can visit their office at 1 Don Jesus Boulevard inside Alabang Hills Village from Monday to Friday, 8AM to 5PM. Always remember to follow their rules and speed limits whenever you are in the village. Be aware also of the recent in-village traffic adjustments.

Additional Speed Bumps inside Alabang Hills Village installed

Whatever residential community you travel in, always watch your speed, follow the local traffic rules and always be mindful of the pedestrians and vehicles near you. This is an old lesson that needs to be remembered again as the Alabang Hills Village Association (AHVA) announced recently that it has started the installation of additional speed bumps inside their village with safety in mind.

To put things in perspective, posted below is an excerpt from the AHVA’s official announcement. Some parts in boldface…

Today we have begun to install additional speed bumps in an effort to make our roads safer for motorists, cyclists, and pedestrians.

Since we took over in mid-March this year, we have noticed that many motorists, both residents and non-residents, do not slow down at certain intersections and instead barrel down the road endangering not only themselves but other motorists as well. They particularly endanger cyclists and pedestrians, most especially children. We have personally observed many near-misses. This has to stop. We ask all motorists to observe all the speed bumps and all road and traffic signs. VIOLATORS WILL BE APPREHENDED AND FINED.

We also request all cyclists to also slow down at intersections and blind curves. By not doing so, you are not only endangering your lives but also the lives of those that you may hit. Many near-misses have also been reported to us.

The new/additional speed bumps installed today are at the following intersections:
• Angeles St. corner Angeles St.
• Toledo St. corner Tagaytay St.
• Doña Ines St. corner Tacloban St.

For the newcomers reading this, Alabang Hills Village in Barangay Cupang, Muntinlupa City is not just a major residential community but also home to churches, San Beda College Alabang and a cluster of town homes as well. It is also an essential place to pass through for residents of Barangay BF Homes and BF Homes subdivision (who have valid vehicular stickers and bicycle/motorcycle stickers issued by the AHVA) who wish to reach the Alabang area without traveling along Concha Cruz Drive.

For the non-residents reading this, If you don’t have a non-resident AHVA vehicular and you really need one right now, then you better apply online immediately by clicking https://alabanghillsvillage.com/sticker/. Also be aware of the enforcement of the “No sticker, no entry” policy towards non-residents.

For inquiries about this new development, visit https://alabanghillsvillage.com/ or call them at 88508254. You can visit their office at 1 Don Jesus Boulevard inside Alabang Hills Village from Monday to Friday, 8AM to 5PM. Always remember to follow their rules and speed limits whenever you are in the village. Be aware also of the recent in-village traffic adjustments.

“Megarahe Sale & Kids Bazaar, Ukay-Okay!” in Alabang Hills Village this weekend

In line with the gradual return to normalcy from the COVID-19 pandemic, the Alabang Hills Village Association (AHVA) announced the return of their annual community activity the “Megarahe Sale & Kids Bazaar, Ukay-Okay!” which will happen this Saturday and Sunday, from 7AM to 7PM at the Community Center.

To put things in perspective, posted below is an excerpt from the AHVA’s official announcement. Some parts in boldface…

Great deals! Best buys! Delicious foods! These are some of the things to look forward to at our forthcoming village event entitled “Megarahe Sale & Kids Bazaar, Ukay-Okay!”

If you are interested in joining, start cleaning up your storage spaces, select items for disposal, and bring them over to the Community Center, Phase 2 Park, for a 2-day sale on October 1 & 2, from 7am to 7pm.

Residents and kids alike may join us for a minimum booth fee. For details & reservations, please call our Help Desk at tel no. 8850-8254, local 106, and ask for Anne.

The Megarahe Sale is an annual activity of the village where we offer a venue for residents to sell their second-hand items & ‘white elephants’. Residents of our neighboring villages and nearby sitios are invited to shop at the sale and enjoy a couple of days of bargain hunting and binge eating with family & friends.

For the newcomers reading this, I wrote a pre-event article about the Megarahe of 2019. The Megarahe Sale itself started several years ago which creatively brought residents and visitors (note: who are able to enter the village by vehicle with AHVA-issue stickers) together while giving villagers the opportunities to sell items to buyers looking for money-for-value deals at the said event. In concept, Megarahe Sale is a collective gathering of residents who do not need to go through the trouble of organizing a garage sale at their respective homes. As many of us know already, garage sales at homes could cause disturbance to nearby neighbors when lots of buyers arrive.  

I myself visited the Megarahe Sale in Alabang Hills several times over the years. In my experience, there were several stalls with items for sale like clothes, accessories, household items, magazines, toys and more. Of course, for the satisfaction of the attendees, there were food and beverage sellers present.

As life continue to gradually normalize, the return of “Megarahe Sale & Kids Bazaar, Ukay-Okay!” is very welcome development and I personally am looking forward to attending it.

The tarpaulin promoting the event.

For the non-residents reading this, if you really want to visit the Megarahe this year, your vehicle must have a valid non-resident vehicular sticker. Otherwise, you won’t be able to enter especially since the AHVA announced that it will strictly enforce the “No sticker, No entry” policy on non-resident motorists starting October 1, 2022. If you don’t have a non-resident AHVA vehicular and you really need one right now, you better apply online immediately by clicking https://alabanghillsvillage.com/sticker/. For details on how to apply for the said stickers, read my recent article. I should also state that AHVA stickers for bicycles and motorcycles are also available.

For inquiries about this new development, visit https://alabanghillsvillage.com/ or call them at 88508254. You can visit their office at 1 Don Jesus Boulevard inside Alabang Hills Village from Monday to Friday, 8AM to 5PM. Always remember to follow their rules and speed limits whenever you are in the village. Be aware also of the recent in-village traffic adjustments.

New traffic measures inside Alabang Hills Village implemented

If you have been passing through Alabang Hills Village in Muntinlupa City very lately, you might have noticed some changes with regards to the flow of vehicular traffic, parking and other matters. This is because the Security Committee of the Alabang Hills Village Association (AHVA) implemented new traffic measures in anticipation of an increased volume of vehicles traveling along Don Manolo Boulevard (DMB) in connection to the beginning of classes at San Beda College. The AHVA announced this on August 14, 2022.

To begin with, look at the image sourced from AHVA below…

Take a close look at the details. (image sourced from AHVA)

To put things in perspective, posted below is an excerpt from the AHVA’s August 14 announcement. Some parts in boldface…

In anticipation of the high volume of vehicles that will be traversing along Don Manolo Boulevard (DMB) due to the opening of classes in San Beda on Monday, August 15 (Kinder, Nursery, Grades 1-12, from Aug 15 to 26; classes for all levels, Aug 29 onwards), the AHVA Security Committee will implement the following traffic scheme:

1. All openings/breaks along the center island DMB from the Alabang-Zapote gate up to the Rotunda will be cordoned off except for the opening/breaks infront of the New Life building where cars can make a U-turn.

2. Vehicles going to San Beda from the Alabang-Zapote gate must take the left lane to be able to turn left and enter the main gate of the SBC campus.

3. Vehicles exiting the San Beda campus will use the gate in the SBC chapel as per coordination with SBC security.

4. Vehicles from the Tirona gate going to San Beda must remain in the right lane.

5. Priority will be given to resident vehicles in the rotunda coming from Don Jesus Boulevard going towards Alabang-Zapote gate via DMB.

6. AHVA will deploy & post deputized security personnel and Brgy Tanod infront of SBC main gate, and AZ road traffic light respectively to ensure that the new traffic scheme is observed by all motorists.

7. Traffic enforcers from the Brgy. Cupang will man the traffic and ensure vehicles exiting DMB can pass along Alabang-Zapote with ease.

8. NO Parking Zone & NO Loading & Unloading along DMB will be strictly enforced.

9. Directional signages will be put up along DMB for information & guidance of everyone.

10. Security officer Jefferson Ragudos will be onsite and all SGs equipped with radioes for fast communication relay and body cameras in case of apprehension.

Above traffic management measures are made possible in coordination with San Beda Security Team and the Brgy. Cupang Traffic Enforcer group.

Kindly note that these traffic measures will be in effect from 6am to 6pm, beginning 15th of August and until such time wherein necessary changes are warranted.

Now that you have read the above details about the new traffic measures already implemented inside Alabang Hills Village, be mindful about how you drive along Don Manolo Boulevard which can get really congested due to school-related activities. There will be students, teachers and other workers who will be coming to the school and that translates into more private vehicles and village tricycles converging at the academic institution’s part of the boulevard. Also, be mindful of potential congestion at Alabang Hills village gates as there might be an increase of motorists driving vehicles that do not have valid DMB stickers or AHVA non-resident vehicular stickers. Such vehicles will be lining up at the lane for vehicles without stickers before entering.

To apply for a new DMB sticker (for those who need to visit New Life Alabang or San Beda College with access limited only to Don Manolo Boulevard) or a new AHVA non-resident sticker (1-year or 2-years), click https://alabanghillsvillage.com/sticker/

For inquiries about this new development, visit https://alabanghillsvillage.com/ or call them at 88508254. You can visit their office at 1 Don Jesus Boulevard inside Alabang Hills Village from Monday to Friday, 8AM to 5PM.

Tree pruning ongoing inside Alabang Hills Village

If you are a non-resident motorist with a valid AHVA car sticker who constantly passes through Alabang Hills Village in Muntinlupa City, be aware that there are tree pruning operations going on inside the village and you will need to a bit patient with regards to potential reduction of road space or potential obstacles on the road in relation to the pruning.

The Alabang Hills Village Association (AHVA) announced recently to their residents the pruning of trees all around the village which is being done in preparation of the incoming typhoon season. The pruning operations include the rent of a “boom crane” which is to help them reach and cut the higher branches. They also stated that the said crane may not always be available and they may need to do the pruning during weekends. Pruning operations, unsurprisingly, will produce noise and the AHVA asked their residents for their indulgence and understanding.

On a different matter, the issuance of new vehicular stickers for non-resident motorists is ongoing in Alabang Hills. Those of you who need to renew your old AHVA non-resident sticker can apply online at https://alabanghillsvillage.com/sticker/ or you can apply off-line by visit the office at 1 Don Jesus Boulevard inside Alabang Hills Village from Monday to Friday, 8AM to 5PM. Always remember to follow their rules and speed limits whenever you are in the village.

For your reference about the new AHVA stickers.

COVID-19 Crisis: Rise of cases in Muntinlupa City not a cause for alarm yet

Today, Muntinlupa City Mayor Ruffy Biazon gave an important update about the rising number of COVID-19 cases in the city and specified that it is not a cause for alarm yet, the Manila Bulletin reported.

To put things in perspective, posted below is the excerpt from the Manila Bulletin news report. Some parts in boldface…

Muntinlupa Mayor Ruffy Biazon reminded the public to follow health protocols such as wearing of face masks as the number of Covid-19 cases in the city is rising although not a cause for alarm yet.

This morning I would like to emphasize the reminder on health protocols. Cases are rising although it is not a cause for alarm,” said Biazon during the weekly flag-raising ceremony at the Muntinlupa City hall quadrangle on July 11.

Based on data from the City Health Office (CHO), Muntinlupa added 29 new Covid-19 cases on July 10 to bring the total active cases to 125. There were also 11 patients who recovered and one who died.

The mayor said based on health care utilization rate in Muntinlupa, the Covid-19 situation is not yet a cause for alarm.

So far our health facilities are not overwhelmed, we do not feel that there is a crisis. Cases are rising but we will not be overwhelmed based on the report that was given to me. But that is a reason for us to be on alert. We should never let our guard down,” said Biazon.

He added, “Let us remind everyone to follow protocols, here at work, at home, within the community just to stop the spread. We don’t want that to spread to the point that it will be a concern.”

“As of now, nothing to be alarmed about but we should be alert,” he said.

The above article ended stating that of the 125 COVID-19 cases in Muntinlupa City, 27 of that were in Barangay Cupang, 23 in Barangay Tunasan, 19 in Barangay Alabang and 16 in Barangay Ayala Alabang to name some.

Let me end this piece by asking you readers: If you are a Muntinlupa City resident, what is your reaction to this recent development? Are you feeling uneasy about the rising number of COVID-19 cases in the city? What can you say about the reported statements of Mayor Biazon?

2022-2023 Alabang Hills Village vehicular stickers for non-resident motorists now available

The anticipated new Alabang Hills Village Association (AHVA) vehicular stickers for non-resident motorists marked with the years 2022-2023 are now available and applications can be done via the association’s official website. That being said, applicants must be able to download and print the AHVA’s official application form, fill it up and sign it, and prepare themselves to submit it to the association. This means you must have a reliable Internet connection, printer with sufficient ink, paper and a scanner. You must also have the official receipt (OR) and certificate of registration (CR) of your vehicle(s) prepared as well. Also, you must be ready to secure an endorsement from your homeowner’s association (HOA) which the AHVA requires. Refer to the Endorsement part on page 1 of the application form.

To begin with, click https://alabanghillsvillage.com/sticker/. Once the page loads, click the Non-resident/pass-thru option which will lead you into another page.  On the new page, you will see Step 2, Step 3 and Step 4.

Step 2 is where you can click to download the newest AHVA vehicular sticker application form. As mentioned above, you must be ready with your Internet connection and a printer to be able to print the application form (visualized below) fill in the key details and sign before you submit it to the AHVA.

Step 3 shows the rates of the new vehicular stickers. For BF Homes residents, the rate is P1,500 per car for the first two cars, then P2,500 per car for the 3rd car and more cars. The rates are under the reciprocity arrangement between BF Homes and AHVA. For private cars, the rate is P2,000 per car for 1 year, and P3,600 per car for 2 years. The method of payment is cash which will be done on the applicant’s booking day

Step 4 is where the applicant will book his/her appointment with AHVA online. Applicants will be able to select the dates and choose from one of several time periods of the chosen date (examples: 8:15 AM, 8:30 AM, 8:45 AM, 9AM and so on). In the event your appointment will need to be cancelled for reasons beyond the AHVA’s control (bad weather, natural calamities, late holiday advisories, etc.), they will call you to reschedule your appointment.

After that, applicants will be required to specify how many vehicles they have for sticker issuance. The email address, the first name, the last name and contact number are also required in order to proceed to the next page.

While online application via the AHVA’s official website is heavily emphasized, applicants for the non-resident AHVA stickers are still welcome to drop by their office (office schedule below) to get forms, sign, submit required documents and pay on-site. Appointments will be strictly implemented.

Non-resident motorists who have the old 2021-2022 AHVA stickers are advised that the said stickers will expire on August 31, 2022.

Pay close attention to this.

For further inquiries, visit https://alabanghillsvillage.com/ or call them at 88508254. You can visit their office at 1 Don Jesus Boulevard inside Alabang Hills Village from Monday to Friday, 8AM to 5PM. Always remember to follow their rules and speed limits whenever you are in the village.
