A refresher on easy to prepare health treats by Detox Bar founder Anne Dala, flower power art exhibit featuring local artists, and display of homeowner Debbie Degracia’s succulents collection kicked off the Summer Festival celebration at the Bamboo Bay Community.
The activities held last April 14 are just among the array of special offerings for this month and throughout May that serve to highlight Bamboo Bay’s advocacy for art, nature, wellness, and family, said Contempo Property Holdings, Inc. President Beverly Dayanan.
The Flower Power Exhibit, which will run up to May 31, 2018, features a collection of art pieces by renowned Cebuano artists Celso Pepito, Fe Madrid, Vidal Alcoseba, Jr., Jose Yap Baguio, Jerson Calo, Edgar Carabio, Sofronio dela Cerna, and Joval Ponce. The exhibit is hosted at the Contempo Art Gallery and has support from Manila Art Frames.
Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) 7 Director Ahmed Cuizon graced the opening of the exhibit.
Ms. Dala, who is also a home chef and food revolution ambassador, held a demo on preparing nutritious and delectable summer drinks using common ingredients.
Festival guests learned how to make a banana shake more nutritious by adding kale and malunggay to the mix. Beetroot, which is a rich source of folate, can also add flavor and nutrients to your summer drinks.
Anne Dala’s demo puts focus on a unique feature of the Bamboo Bay Community, and that is the Edible Garden. It will soon supply the soon-to-open Community Store with vegetables and organic herbs.
Degracia brought her collection of succulent plants to the Summer Festival launch, and these were a big hit with visitors. She shared tips on how to properly care for succulents.
Bamboo Bay will play host as well to exciting activities for the month of May. Events lined up include the Flores de Mayo celebration. Special masses will be held every Saturday, and they will end with flower offerings for Mother Mary at the Bamboo Bay Chapel that is dedicated to Our Lady of Mary Mediatrix of All Grace.
A Santacruzan procession around the community to be participated by homeowners and guests will cap off the summer-long celebration at Bamboo Bay, as it lives up to its aim to be a place for life’s best moments.
