Because we love Miki and because we heart art, we attended …
This was her piece in the exhibit.
It’s called Hairline. The girls in the photo are Inez and Val. And yes, I’m the girl pointing (not giving a dirty finger) at the photo.
And this is me with Joko and Kwe. Kas, Dietrich and Christian were also with us… in spirit. LOL, no group pic.
This is with our favorite artist among the 20. WTG, Miki Giles!
That little lady sitting, my friends, is Tumblr superstar Saab Magalona. Her boyfriend was also one of the 20 artists who made the exhibit possible. I wanted to have a picture taken with her, but I had a blasted headache. Hence, I was not in my kapal-ng-mukha mood. She’s very cute in person pala and seemed down to earth. I followed her on Twitter right after because of.
I want this art piece in my room, even if it I will probably give me nightmares every night.
We also attended the exhibit, because it’s at The Collective and we wanted to try the ramen in one of restos there, Wabi-Sabi. Unfortunately, only the pot stickers, siopao and lemongrass tea were available that night. It was okay, since I liked both pot stickers and asado siopao. I’m not a fan of lemongrass. Joko liked it, though.
I was still hungry so we went to The Collective’s burger joint, Wingman. We had the attention-grabbing items from the menu.
We had the Wingman Burger (that’s Christian, btw). The burger pattie was delicious but the lack (seemed like it) of bleu cheese was disappointing.
This was definitely the source of joy in that brief dinner at Wingman. Say hello to Deep-Fried Snickers a la Mode.
And so that was my art and food night at The Collective last Saturday.
I promised myself I’d be back for more exhibits and to eat that Wabi-Sabi ramen.
(I did go back for ramen. But…. ): Check out next entry.)
