Currently ongoing is SM North Edsa’s ‘Art Karnival: Vinyl on Vinyl’ – a fun and colorful exhibit of art installations, murals, 3D and interactive displays created by a diverse group of pop culture artists like Tyang Karyel, Dex Fernandez and Blic among others. Shoppers and tenants are treated to the visual stimulation provided by the combination of fun and surreal artworks spread throughout the stretch of the mall’s Sky Garden. (more…)

Celebrating Chinese New year at the Sky Ranch

Good fortune and a blessed year – these are the things that the Chinese New Year heralds, and why Filipinos have taken this holiday to heart and celebrated it along with our Tsinoy brothers and sisters. The Chinese New Year is not just about the fireworks (which can be and are always spectacular), but is about learning to attract the good things in life by letting go of the negative attitude to acquire a more positive one.

What better way to attain a high-minded perspective that will set the tone for the new Chinese New Year than by reveling in all the thrills that are offered by the Sky Ranch? Sky Ranch, an amusement park popular among children and the young-at-heart, celebrates the ties that bind the Filipino-Chinese community in the country and features the richness of the Chinese culture. Located beside the Taal Vista Hotel along Aguinaldo Highway, Sky Ranch showcased 19 fun rides and other attractions such as horseback riding and its 300-meter zip line.

How to Find the Perfect Wedding Reception Venues in Sydney

There’s so much more to a wedding than the “I Do’s.” From the moment the day – or even weekend – begins, you hope that every single second is planned and accounted for, to ensure that you, your family, and your guests, have the most remarkable time of their lives. A significant portion of the time spent on your wedding day will be at your reception, making it extremely important that you find a wedding reception venue in Sydney that matches exactly what you want and expect for your big day. So, what does it take to find that perfect wedding reception venue? Here are three tips to help you along the way.

  1. Is there a nice outdoor setting for ambiance and photographs? It’s true that most of your reception will be spent indoors, dancing, eating, and gathering with friends and family at tables throughout the room. But your Sydney wedding reception hall should also have a brilliant outdoor setting. Many guests will want to spend time outdoors as well, and you’ll want to have a nice backdrop for your photographs. Gardens make a wonderful setting for outdoor photos, so be on the lookout for any venues that features such a garden.
  2. A dedicated wedding planner. A wedding planner will make your life so much easier, while ensuring that your wedding day is flawless. Any issues that do arise will be nipped in the bud before you are the wiser. But, unfortunately, choosing the perfect wedding planner can be a challenge as well. That’s why it’s ideal to find a wedding venue that offers the option of a dedicated wedding planner. That way you won’t have to worry about choosing the right one. Your venue will have a close relationship with someone they trust and have a long-standing relationship with.
  3. Parking. Ah yes, parking is far more important than you realize. Many of the wedding reception venues in Sydney don’t have off-street parking for your wedding guests. This is not only slightly embarrassing, but can be a nuisance (depending on how far the street is from the venue) and a safety concern. Your guests shouldn’t have to walk into the streets to retrieve their cars, nor should they have to worry about the security of their vehicles. Look for a venue that offers off-street parking.
