CRAFT COFFEE WORKSHOP (with The Manila Review)
A Homey, Creativity-inspiring Hangout for Coffee Connoisseurs, Nomad Managers & Friends :)
I first visited Craft Coffee Workshop last December 15, for the launch of The Manila Review, an independent publication that aims to promote critical thinking on today’s culture and issues, catapulted by Leloy Claudio and Mara Coson. Check it out here. Yes, December 15. Backlog, I know.
As a sucker for aesthetic (and gender neutral) rustic design and great ambiance, I instantly fell in love with the place without having sampled the coffee yet.

Thanks to Abbey of H.E.A.R.T., Ella & Geli of Pop Pins for helping me out! It would have been impossible without you guys. :)
Excited for December 8!

The Cheapest Round-The-World Trip for P1,500

Our minds are our greatest travel benefactors. It allows us to sail seas and cross continents with mere visual, olfactory or gustatory suggestions. And that’s the experience that the Lifestyle Network and Nestle's Around The World In Small Plates benefit dinner for I Can Serve Foundation at Rockwell Tent attempted to give to its guests.
Proclaimed as the country’s biggest art show on their event page, BLOOM might truly be one of the most significant markers or contemporary art among today’s younger generation, with some 80-90 artists participating in the multi-media exhibit.
Set on Saturday, September 29, 2012 at Cubao X, this event promises to revive the art scene and youthful and idealistic energy that was alive and kicking in Cubao X years ago, which I dare say was also momentarily revived by Punchdrunk Panda’s Anteroom Sessions 2, an event/project I’m proud to have seen through to fruition earlier this year.
I really love such efforts towards making creativity and community thrive. And while Anteroom may not seem as big an effort at promoting the arts as Bloom, I’d like to think of all such endeavors as a collective movement. :)
Having said that, I also jumped on this chance to finally show some of my paintings to the public. I’ve been dabbling with watercolor painting on and off for some two years now. And I while feel small exhibiting next to some really talented and successful contemporaries, I also feel a triumph at finally just putting it out there.
So here are the pieces I submitted for possible display:
