MANILA, July 6 — President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo will inaugurate tomorrow (Tuesday, July 7) a new enticement at the Manila Ocean Park — the P1 billion investment of China Oceanis Philippines, the Makansutra Asian Food Village.

The President will lead the ribbon-cutting to be followed by a brief inspection of the facilities.

The opening of Makansutra is expected to boost the Manila Ocean Park as another alternative attraction to those who love interacting with marine species.

Its opening is expected to generate new employment opportunities to Metro Manila residents.

Makansutra Asian Food Village is the first branch in the country of China Oceanis which specializes in the investment, building, and operation of public aquaria/oceanarium attractions.

Makansutra will add to the existing Oceanarium at the Manila Ocean Park, Hotel H2O, and the Sunset Quay.

The Makansutra Asian Food Village, a food museum and restaurant, aims to introduce "edutainment" through a multisensory dining experience and interaction. It also provides one-of-a-kind attraction that will match those in other countries.

The restaurant which has a 500-seating capacity, will showcase different food types in "hawker" style food selling that is very popular in Asian countries such as Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong, and China. In the Philippines, they are popularly known as "carinderias." (PNA)
