The largest gathering of Bonsai Makers in the country, held at the Sanib Pwersa

Last March 22 - 25, 2019; the first one-of-a-kind exhibit of precious bonsai trees in pots, viewing stones, and ikebana arrangements and workshops by Masters of the craft was set at the Sanib Pwersa, a show that puts the spotlight on over 200 bonsai from Jaai trees, suiseki viewing stones, and ikebana creations. It was also the first time these three Japanese art forms and culture was featured in one big Philippine show.

Located at The Block Atrium, SM North EDSA, the show was the biggest, grandest, and most attended exhibit because of its lineup of distinguishes lecturers - National Bonsai Association of Taiwan Bonsai Master Amy Liang, Bonsai Master Kunio Kobayashi from Japan, Bonsai Master Yen Zi Jing from Taiwan, Bonsai Master Wu Jian Zhang from Taiwan, Expert on Viewing Stones Thomas Elias from USA, Expert on viewing stones Hiromi Nakaoji from Japan, and Ikenobo Professor Romeo Balderrama, Jr. from the Philippines.

Through the continuous efforts of SM Supermalls, in partnership with the Philippine Bonsai Society (PBSI) and major organizations such as the Natural Stone Society of the Philippines, and Ikebono Ikebana Society of Manila #67, nature lovers experienced yet another 'green' malling adventure.

SM and PBSI continue to hold events in support of their shared advocacy for the environment. Just last month, a memorandum of agreement was signed by SM Supermalls and PBSI so that all PBSI shows and exhibits will be held exclusively in SM Malls nationwide.
