Friendship & Wellbeing

There are many considering factors for buying a home such as types of house, a landed property or an apartment, a gated or non-gated community, location and the types of people living in the neighbourhood.

Why green exercising provides the best results for your overall wellbeing?

But green exercising, further adds to mental wellbeing and some studies even suggest exercising in nature brings us back to our roots and further aid in anger reduction.

Going Wild with Jon Skipper
In June, we’ve had some cracking submissions from friends of the blog who are residents at our YOMA Land developments and starting us off this month is something extra special ...
ORIENTAL DARTER or SNAKE BIRD
These beautiful photographs of an Oriental Darter were captured by keen wildlife photographer and longtime contributor to GW - Arti Maholtra - at the lake which runs along the entrance road to Pun Hlaing Estate and Pun Hlaing Siloam Hospital.
These rarely sighted, elegant birds wait patiently while perched on a tree branch or wading into shallow water, remaining completely motionless until their unsuspecting prey swims close enough for them to rapidly strike out with their pointed bills and capture the unsuspecting fish or frog who ventured too close.
The subtle, muted coloring of this bird is what makes it so visually appealing but its graceful shape hides its real nature as that of a true predator.
Celebrate Nature With Us
Being connected with nature is good for our social, psychological and emotional wellbeing. Many have taken to nature as a way to heal and for spiritual awakening. Being connected with Nature & Going Wild, be it living with nature or simply looking at photographs of nature, helps us cultivate openness, creativity, connection, generosity and resilience.
Living in a Multi-National Community
Putting customers at the heart of everything allow us to help our B2B business partners achieve their goals, increase referrals and our occupancy.
The Building Connections events are an opportunity for us to exchange ideas and showcase our new homes for rent. Regular events of this nature are great for keeping in touch with our partners and create the buying-in for the growth of our rental business. Most of all, participants at the events also get the chance to win a Staycation Package at The Residence.

Yoma Land: Connecting Yangon's Communities
“Good accessibility to public transport is key, and Yoma Land’s locations link directly to numerous YBS bus routes, seamlessly connecting the entire city. Star City is currently designing a Transport Hub for the estate, which proposes to bring YBS services to within walking distance of its residents. Star City also operates a popular daily shuttle bus connecting to downtown Yangon; Pun Hlaing is planning to introduce a similar service.”
“Yoma Land is constantly exploring new transportation options. One such initiative is water transportation, which will connect Star City & Pun Hlaing via Pansodan & Kyee Myin Daing to increase connectivity by reducing door to door travel time via a reliable, convenient and desirable mode. Exciting journeys ahead for residents and visitors alike.”
