Oh hi everyone! I was so busy last November, but I’m baaaack! 🙂 I should have done this post a month ago, but I really had no time for my November was packed with final requirements, final exams, book reviews, research papers, and a whopping full-length TV Show project. Since my December is also going to be as equally full as my November, I better start posting the highlight of my November, 2016.
I was invited by Ms. Jessica Santiago, the owner of Buku-Buku Kafe to cover the CVT-X Art Fair. I really had no time for that, but heck; it’s Buku-Buku Kafe! How can you say “No” to that? So I cleared out my schedule and set the whole 13th of November just for this Art Fair.
CVT-X Art Fair, an event made possible by Buku-Buku Kafe and The Al Project, is a gathering of digital and traditional artists from all over Cavite. That day was filled with art workshops, art bazaar, art demonstrations, live Open Mic Spoken Word Poetry presentations, and an art exhibit.
The Art Exhibit
Personally, I’m a not-so-artsy-type-of-guy, but the art exhibit was one of my favorite parts of the event. It’s a combination of digital and traditional artworks made by Caviteno Artists of course.
The team was still preparing stuff when I came. I actually think that I was the first one to arrive in the said event. The good thing was I had the opportunity to look and appreciate the artworks without worrying that I might be blocking the artworks to others because I was all alone that time.
The art exhibit was composed of fascinating masterpieces, but I had my own personal favorites. Here’s my top 3.

This event is not just for those who want to showcase their creativity in various faces of art. This is also for those who want to learn and further unleash their creative talents in drawing and in watercolor painting.
Live Mural Art
While all other activities were being held simultaneously in different parts of Buku-Buku Kafe, a live mural art painting was showcased near the main entrance of The District –Imus. This live art mural was conducted by Mr. Jo Ocampo from Cavity Collectives.
New (Blogger) Friends
The moment that really made this event memorable was the bond I had with my fellow bloggers. We talked a lot about blogging stuff and I learned new tricks and tips here and there. Having blog-related conversation with them was so fun; that finally, I had a blog conversation with someone who’s also into blogging.
They’ve got interesting blogs, vlogs, photoblogs too. Please do check them out whenever you feel like to:
I would like to thank Cheryle Ramos, Natalie Tugade, and Jesma Salas for allowing me to use their Instagram posts about the CVT-X Art Fair.
