The first half of the year for the government and the people may not be harmonious but on the second half of the year, there will be much better year for the country. Malacanang office has a good luck in Feng Shui this 2017,” said Master Chau during the Gong Xi Fa Cai Chinese New Year Celebration press conference held last January 20.
Aside from traditional Chinese revelries, upcycle artist Jevie Santos Pagpaguitan transforms The Gallery into a beautiful garden complete with Prosperity Trees and Fire Rooster made up of upcycled materials. Chinese merchants selling Feng Shui items, paintings, and Chinese delicacies can be seen which creates a feel of Little Chinatown.
Pagpaguitan shared with us how his works were chosen to be featured at The Gallery and told us some of the materials he used to make his creations. Some of us think that ordinary things found in our home have no use. Instead, Pagpaguitan used these materials to make a wonderful state-of-the-art masterpiece. For example, the blooming flowers in his Prosperity Trees were made from the bottom of softdrink pet bottles.
