Last Septermber 29, the annual bloom arts festival was held in Cubao Expo where it is usually being held on. The event is, well basically about arts. The thing i like about this festival is, they cover all kinds of art they can present, and by that said, I mean song writing, which covers literature, poetry and performing arts. They also did impromptu paintings where they just had plain sheet of wood that they’d put paint on and usually 3-4 persons work at one painting at the same time, so that’s kind of cool for me. And one thing I like about the place is that it’s all about arts, the shops has some mini galleries and then there, they will sell some postcards that the artists made. It’s more fun because they sell beers outside they bars, so you can just buy and drink it with your friends enjoying awesome local music while sitting in the pavements. Of course, what’s a festival without food, and bazaar and stuff like that right? They built a mini bazaar there, they sell cool stuff like accessories made of bones, fashionistas will surely love that stuff, and as for me well I like eating so I like the where they’d sell home baked cookies and stuff like that.
Cubao expo is usually open everyday from noon – evening like 7pm. They have classic records shop, classic furniture shops, antique stores, book sales, skate-stuff shop, many more. There are also bars and restaurants and cafes. Personally, I like chilling at the Sweet Xstacy where they’d sell super delicious cookies and complementing that cookies, are the milks they sell.
after that, i went to SaGuijo with my friends and cousin because Up Dharma Down is schedules for a gig there. There are a lot of people so we stayed at a bar just across the street and drank couple of beers there, I just wanted to hear them live for the first time, I didn’t know that they were pre-selling there new album “Capacities”. So I decided to buy one, it comes with a package with a +1 in their album launch, an artwork shirt, and the album itself, of course the ticket is for keeps, they are the best indie band for me in the Phils.
