Why Should You Visit The On-Going #Sikka18?

Sikka Art Festival is Dubai Art Season‘s flagship initiative showcasing wide range of art and featuring exhibitions, art installations, workshop, film and music.

When searching for Open Mic Poetry Event online, I stumbled upon DXB Speak Easy who will perform poetry reading on Sikka so I decided to watch it. Since not all my friends are into art, I conditioned myself to go alone. Thankfully, one of my friends made up her mind and decided to come–just in time for the spoken word.

I am mainly interested in watching Spoken Word but there are a lot of things to enjoy aside from it.

Here’s why:

  1. It’s FREE!

You won’t spend a penny in entering the place plus, they are offering a wide range of workshop for FREE as well! Oil Painting, Photography, Fashion, Craft-Making, Poems and Visual Arts–they got you covered. You have to register online to reserve a slot.

  1. Eat Art.

Feast on various art pieces available on every houses. If you are a lover of painting or photography, you will sure find inspiration and widen your perspective. One thing I love when visiting art houses is seeing from the perspective of the artist, draw emotions from it and be amazed on how they create their pieces.

  1. Open for All Ages.

From kids to kids at heart, anyone can enjoy a thing or two on this event.

  1. Performing Arts.

Listen to music, act or poetry reading, and prepared to be amazed by the country’s talented artist every night. I always enjoy poems and prose being spoken and performed on stage. Last night, I watched it live and it sure gave a different sense of satisfaction and happiness.

So why don’t you go there and see for yourself? You’re welcome. 😊

Sikka Art Fair runs until March 26. Visit sikka18.com for further details.


Chocapic or Koko Krunch?

I grew up knowing this choco cereal brand as Koko Krunch. So when I first see this familiar Koala Bear with a different brand name, I thought it is fake. But it is legit–same branding, packaging, texture and taste, just with a different name. (Parang tawag lang sakin: sa bahay, jai-jai; Sa office, gee-ra. πŸ™„)

I hardly eat cereal back then because it is considered luxury. Quite expensive, it never get into our grocery list. I never had a memory of eating cereal at breakfast. However, I always see it advertised and even memorized the tag line.

“Poof! It became Koko Krunch!”

Good thing I got it here at 50% off so I grabbed a box. Felt like a kid, I finished it in one sitting–okay, two. 😊

It’s funny how we call other things here differently. Here are the few:

Differences: PH x AE
Cellphone: Load x Recharge
Fastfood: Take Out x Take Away
Building: Elevator x Lift
Train: MRT x Metro
Car Pool: Shuttle x Car Lift

How about in your place, how do you call these things?

On Sleeping Over

We’ll share the bed for a night because, bedspace!

G: Ji, di ako naliligo sa gabi ah?

Me: Okay lang, ako nga sa umaga e. πŸ™‰πŸ™ˆπŸ™ŠπŸ˜…πŸ˜…πŸ˜…

Happy Sunday!:)


Reciting complex password with confidence:



Ate: Ahahahahaha! Di mo pa ginawang Wengweng. Nahiya ka pa.

Me: Di ko alam yung Wengweng!! Hahaha

Also me: Okay na, okay na??? Pwede ko na ituloy?? Hahaha!

Me to myself: Military Alphabet ka pa a. Di mo naman pala kabisado. Hahahaha

Sweet Surprise

“Lord, would it be nice if some stranger hand me their jacket to borrow? I’m chilling cold.”

A few hours after that unspoken thought, one of the crew gave me her black crochet top.

“Use this,” she said.

Although it is not how I imagined it would happen, getting that silent prayer answered is quite amazing. Can’t get enough of the Lord’s sweetness that day!

PS: TBH, what I imagined is a cute Oppa putting his jacket on me (like how they do it in Kdrama). But wouldn’t it be akward and creepy? Di ko naman siya kilala e. Ano siya? Hahaha! The Lord’s ways and thoughts are really higher (and way better) than mine. And He also knows how to give me a good laugh. πŸ™ŠπŸ™‰πŸ™ˆπŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ˜πŸ˜Š

PPS: Pinost ko na ‘to sa IG story, pati sa feed tapos dito sa WP. Please wag niyo ko i-judge. Gusto ko lang talaga i-aura yung lips ko ikwento kung paano sinagot ni Lord yung prayer ko. Pag iisipan ko pa kung ipopost ko rin to sa FB. Hahaha!

Thanks, But No Thanks!

Remember this night.
How it feels like
You were just a valid reason
To cover up tracks.
Asking you out is only a courtesy.
You can come.
But you better not.

Next time, remember to pass.
Come up with an excuse
Or you will be used as one.
Spend your time somewhere else.
Somewhere worth your time.
Because every second you give
Is equivalent to love.
Hoping to be appreciated
Not trampled away.

You thought you were wanted.
Finally, someone you can be honest with.
Someone you can be yourself
Without thinking twice.

But you got it all wrong.
You are just a nice and smooth escape goat.

The “I-miss-you”
Is like a penny dropped in an empty can.
Loud and insincere.
The action doesn’t match the words.
The means won’t justify the ends.
The motive can’t be concealed.

Remember how the sweet words
Turned sour the moment it left the lips.
It should soothe your heart
But you were pierced instead.

Remember this night.
And never let yourself be used again
To satisfy one’s ego
Nor hide the filth of someone else.

Halimaw Sa Poste

May knock-knock joke si SPACEPACITO sa PSA GC about “Halimaw sa poste.”

So ginaya ko siya at nag-knock-knock naman ako sa GC namin with my family.

Nanay ko lang ang online.

Hahaha! Di ko kinaya e. Di pa ko nagsisimula, soplak na ko.

So I demanded an explanation. I needed an acceptable reason.

Bwahahaha! May point naman siya. Alam nga naman pala niyang ako yun.

Sarap talaga ka-laughtrip ng Nanay ko. Sa kanya lang bumebenta joke ko. At tawang-tawa rin ako kapag bumabanat siya.

Dahil naging busy na ko after, yung joke ni SPACEPACITO hindi ko na nasabi. Next time nalang. Gagamit ako ng ibang account para sabihin na niya yung magic word na “who’s there?” Sino magpapahiram ng account sakin? πŸ™ŠπŸ™‰πŸ™ˆπŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£

PS: Kung gusto niyo malaman kung ano yung joke ni Space, reply: “Oo! Ano yun Jai? Please lang sabihin mo sa’kin!” Kung hindi, “Never mind. I-message ko nalang si Space.” Then send to 14344. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
