“Cubao X”


Window shooting at the Marikina Shoe Expo, Cubao, Q.C.

“Between the click of the light and the start of the dream.”

Heima. Mogwai. Bellinis. Sputnik. Pablo. I Love You Store. White Box. The Vinyl Dump. These are just a few of the interesting places you have to visit when you are walking in this open air, u-shaped hole-in-the-wall in Quezon City. Much likened to Greenwich Village in NY in terms of eclectic feel and atmosphere, the inviting mix of vintage thrift shops, art galleries, bookstores, the best Italian resto ever, an emerging modern retro furniture shop and the hottest place to be seen and hang out seem like a perfect place to waste one’s Saturday in. This collaboration of arts and ideas make Cubao X ideal to shake up creative juices. So, when everything is looking quite boring, take up the X.

    Cubao X is one of my favorite places in Manila. I had a surprise birthday party there at the now defunct Chunky Far Flung Gallery. And who doesn't love good ol' sweet wine and authentic Italian from Bellini's. Miss that place so much.
