local furniture and products were also part of the magnificent display

local furnitures and home decors were also part of the design

It was their privilege and honor that they were entrusted to do the landscaping of SM Mall of Asia- Arena where the “Welcome ” dinner and cultural show was held.

They had to bring large trucks and hire several workers to haul the big plants and to finish entire landscape jobs. They used the freight elevator , climb the stairs to carry all the plants and accents at the venue place which is hard work for everyone.
