Aqua and Spark.The Gentle Dream Builders Like the Water Molecules from the Dried Flowers
Walking into Saw Green Space, travellers would just be embraced by the gentle ambience. As the space is replete with dried flowers with elegant fragrance and diverse yet harmonious colors, one might expect to see a lovely hostess coming out from the back of the glass floral studio and greet the guests. But actually, the hosts are two sweet-tempered boys, who serve you a cup of herbal tea upon your arrival. Aqua, born in 1979, is a Libra. Wearing black- rimmed glasses, his simple sharp look reflects his background in industrial design. And Spark, a Sagittarius born in 1987, wears a fresh smile on his fair-looking face.

These two, like the water molecules from the dried flowers, are the gentle dream builders of Saw Green Space.
