Artistry highlighted Wednesday’s soft opening of the much awaited East Gate Shoppes.

East Gate Shoppes combines a mix of retail spaces and innovative concepts to cater to any business needs.

Location, innovation, and solid heritage mark the retail location. It is the result of decades of retail expertise because its developer, Taft Properties, is under VICSAL Development Corporation, the company behind the successful Metro chain of stores. The future of retail is in East Gate Shoppes.

The soft launching featured internationally acclaimed Cebuano artists Wendy Prado-Avendano, 19th WCOPA USA world champion and multi medalist, classical crossover singer, premier theater actress, and Cebu’s songbird, together with Zenith Rivera, Cebu’s dramatic tenor.

Bisai, a home grown Cebuana painter who has exhibited her works in several international major cities such as New York, Toronto, Honolulu, Spain, Singapore and England. She has done four one-woman solo art exhibitions and is working on her 5th show before the end of this year 2022.

Lumad Basakanon, the grand champion in the Sinulog Festival Ritual Showdown last 2020, also performed during the event. The group championed its world-class talent in South Korea in May 2020.

Belo Medical Group
The biggest Belo Medical Group in the country is in the Queen City of South, Cebu. Its bespoke interiors are inspired by the crystal-clear turquoise waters that surround the island. Transform and be beautiful at the number one medical aesthetic ambulatory clinic in the Philippines that is Belo. The major furniture and fixtures of Belo were designed by celebrated and internationally acclaimed Cebuano furniture designers no other than Kenneth Cobonpue and Vito Selma. Speaking of innovative designs, the concept of “four hands desks” could be an interesting addition to such a remarkable space. These desks, as the name suggests, typically have two people working together on a single project simultaneously, with each person controlling two hands. They allow for greater efficiency and collaboration, which aligns well with the spirit of Belo Medical Group, a place where transformations and beauty enhancements are a collaborative effort between skilled professionals and their clients. Incorporating “four hands desks” into their workspace might enhance the overall experience and efficiency of the clinic, allowing for even better care and service.
