THE tandem of Manila Mayor Isko Moreno and Vice Mayor Honey Lacuna led the launch of “MayniLove,” last Monday, Feb. 1 at the Mehan Garden near the Manila City Hall yesterday, for those who want to show their love for their spouses or partners in life and loved ones this coming Valentine’s Day without having to spend so much.
Moreno said entry to the venue is free of charge and there, couples may listen to live music, take pictures and even enjoy a wide array of food and gift items.
“This time, we are helping the industries involved in flowers (florists), food as always because this is essential, local artists from bands, to violinists, saxophone players and other performers. Some stuffed toys will be on sale as well, chocolates and candies, scents and scented candles, apparel made for couples as well as accessories and many more including fine dining,” Facundo said.
Moreno, he said, had envisioned the idea with the people of Manila in mind to have a beautiful place where they can spend their time with their loved ones without spending a lot.
The mayor has also committed to continue to help businesses, especially during this time of hardship brought about by the pandemic, through the BPLO.
The same site was used during the “Paskuhan sa Maynila” where residents were treated to a free Christmas-themed venue that also offered live bands, Instagrammable attractions and bazaars selling food and various kinds of items. ANDI GARCIA
