Kekert: Sundry occasions

The Metropolis

THE Glass House of the Montebello Villa Hotel was festooned into a Bohemian-themed festive soiree to celebrate Nena Garcia’s 87th birthday. She beamed with pride and happiness, surrounded by members of her family (children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren) as well as her nearest and dearest! Happy Birthday, Nena and many best wishes on your very special day!

A White Havana inspired bash for a glorious 67th birthday took place at the IC3 Convention Center to celebrate yet another milestone for Lito Barino! With plenty to celebrate on this special occasion, alongside his wife Fe and many guests in attendance, everyone swung to the music played by the timeless Firelights Band followed by a meaningful speech shared by Lito himself. The dinner spread was fully prepared by Creative Cuisine for everyone to indulge in. Happy Birthday, Lito and wishing you never-ending joy and happiness!

Award-winning material innovator and sustainable manufacturer Nature’s Legacy won the Eco-Design Award in the recently concluded Manila Fame 2019 held at the World Trade Center Manila. The winning piece, called the “Sunburst” wall decal is made from a proprietary material called Nucast®, a recycled paper composite that is lightweight, organic and contains no Volcanic Organic Compound or VOC, making its parts safe to consume. The invention can mimic the look and feel of natural finite materials such as stone and metal but does not degrade as easily.

To date, Nature’s Legacy has upcycled 20,000 kilograms of waste paper, turning them into high-value Nucast® pieces such as furnishing, home decor, architectural elements and novelty items.
