It has been a good few days since my last post (I think this post makes up for it since it’s quite a long one). Things that happened since then – 1. Our Exhibit for Philconstruct, 2. Whirlwind Egress, 3. Weekend Remnants and Shawarma Craving, 4. I got sick (I’m not sure but I’ve narrowed the culprits/suspects to the following: honey stars, dumplings and my aunt’s beef soup. Thus I’ve been avoiding those and I hope I do feel better soon).
On to what this post is all about – the Philconstruct Visayas 2010. I did say that I will write about (and provide pictures) in this post. Were some of you able to go? If there are a couple of yeses, thanks a lot! (and I hope you had fun ). I certainly did since I love doing exhibits (more specifically interior mock-ups) and I love construction shows.
For those who weren’t able to go, this post can help you out.
Beautiful Flower Arrangement (We had this at our dining set-up)
“PHILCONSTRUCT Visayas 2010″ is a construction show which features the latest in building and construction in terms of both technology and design. It brings together engineers, construction companies, contractors, builders, developers, interior designers and architects – as well as general spectators who are interested in such fields or those who wish to view the exhibits.
It is the first of its kind to be held in Cebu since it was held only in Manila for the last 20 years (By the way, a separate show was also feature in Mindanao last July). There were 300 booths during the event and product varieties were aplenty.
Philconstruct Visayas 2010 was organized by the Philippine Contractors Association, Inc. (PCA) and the Cebu Contractors Association, Inc. (CCA). It was held on September 9-11, 2010 at the Pacific Ballroom of Waterfront Cebu City Hotel and Casino.

As always, I took a gazillion pictures and you can peruse over them below. By the way, if you wish to view more pictures of our interior mock-ups (and I mean all of them) – they are in this post. Have fun!
Launch Day (September 9, 2010)
Quick Perfomance during the Opening and Blessing of Philconstruct Visayas 2010
Organizers and other Contractors with Mayor Rama (Cebu City Mayor)
The Contractors used jackhammers during the “Ribbon Cutting Ceremony” (Coolio!)
Kitchen and Dining (Modern Classic)
(We got to choose which booths we wanted to design and conceptualize – I joined this and it was amazing. )
I had to get the ornamental metal flowers – they contrasted nicely with the red wooden plate.
I had to get these jars (they were a pair) as well. I love patterns.
This was simply beautiful – it added a touch of elegance to our dining area. One would think that it is an origami creation.
Our Beautiful Modern Classic Kitchen and Dining Exhibit
Condo Living (Contemporary)
I love their graceful swan ornament. The red candle holder adds a punch of color.
I like this printed metal bowl (We were supposed to have one in the Kitchen and Dining area as well).
Hotel Suite (Post Modern)
These prints are simply classy.
Toilet and Bath (Indoor | Outdoor)
I love the rawness of the untreated wood panels.
Other Exhibits and Exhibitors
These models were displayed at the UAP Exhibit Booths (All of their chapters had a booth). I love models and had been fascinated by them since I was small.
Can I have a whole tray to myself please?
For all those who have been reading The Sea Green Journal, you would know by now that I absolutely love cupcakes. The Häfele booth was definitely coolio. They featured a real modern kitchen and they had Chef Kim baking all sort of treats there throughout the duration of the construction show. They invited us over and I was over the moon (haha). The cupcakes and cookies were delicious!
By the way, in case you wanted more information about Häfele (sans baked treats) – Häfele Philippines Inc. is a subsidiary of the German based Hafele Group. They are a supplier of Furniture Fittings, Architectural Hardware and Electronic Locking Systems.
P.S. Here are a couple of pictures with me in them.

P.P.S. I ate a lot during the duration of the exhibit.
Yum! I love you too.
