The opening of the exhibit has started with basic Chinese painting lessons from his students. I was given a chance to do some simple paintings, i.e. bamboo shoots, leaves, flowers and fruits with simple strokes and the blending of colors. Special thanks to my sensei Ashley who taught me how to paint! 😀

Before the formal opening of the exhibit, there are Cultural performances to celebrate the colorful Chinese culture and its heritage. There are also opening remarks from the members of the Chan Lim family and from the famed actor Robin Padilla, who happens to be a family friend of the family of artists.
