The Birchwood resident wins 1st Acacia Idol singing competition

Acacia Estates, DMCI Homes’ first township development in the metro, recently celebrated its second community fiesta with a weekend of fun and revelry at The Tent in Acacia Town Center, Taguig City.

With the theme of “Acacia Fiesta Carnival,” young and old residents alike, enjoyed two days full of enjoyable activities lined up by DMCI Homes and Globe At Home that include a free Zumba session, dance exhibitions, film screenings, and dog fashion show.

For this year, The Tent was dressed up like an amusement park while resident concessionaires transformed it to a huge bazaar selling a variety of affordable products and apparels.

“We want to give Acacia Estates residents something to look forward to every year and get a feel of a traditional fiesta even if they live in a modern community. An event where residents can come together as one community which is the real essence of a fiesta celebration,” said DMCI Homes Property Management Corporation (DPMC) Senior Vice President Enrico C. Wong.

Inter-community competitions like “Acacia Idol” and “Little Miss Acacia,” meanwhile, brought out the competitive spirit of residents of the 150-hectare township development.

Belting out Beyonce’s “Listen” in the final round, Janine Ilagan of The Birchwood, bested 11 other equally talented contestants to bring home a cash prize and the distinction of being the first ever winner of the “Acacia Idol” singing competition.

“Nakaka-overwhelm po kasi marami rin pong magagaling na contestant at nakakakaba po kasi iba-iba po yung genre tapos mayroon pang may range na mas mataas. Hindi po ako makapaniwala na ako yung nanalo,” shared the 17-year-old daughter of an Overseas Filipino Worker in Saudi Arabia.

Mikeila Milan Carreon, also a resident of The Birchwood, on the other hand, was crowned winner of this year’s Little Miss Acacia competition.

Residents finished off the festivities with a game of bingo where they had a chance of winning smart television sets and gadgets.

“It’s a very nice activity and it’s a great venue to get to know our fellow residents here in the Acacia Estates community,” said Trish Arcenas, whose adorable pet won first place in the dog fashion show competition.
