Navigate Away

Lawrence was recently part of a panel that answered questions about navigating your career pathway as a young adult.  He spoke about his work at an anti-trafficking organization and his multiple social enterprises (one of which is Liberty Street).  We had a booth set up at the talk and it was great to be able to meet people and tell them about what we are doing here with Liberty Street.  Thanks to all the people that dropped by and chatted, I hope to see you all again soon!

40 Under 40

I was at a banquet last night that was hosted by Devex and Chevron that celebrated 40 people under the age of 40 that are succeeding in making the Philippines a better place through their various ventures.  It was encouraging to see how many people are actually out there making a difference and the 40 people that were awarded are certainly deserving of the recognition.  It was also great to see through conversations with people how supportive they are of what we are doing here at Liberty Street especially since what we all want to do is to change the world for the better.  Hopefully one day we can make onto the 40 under 40 list.  In the meantime enjoy the pictures.

Futura 2000

This past weekend I found myself at the launch party for the Futura designed Henessy bottle at the M. Cafe at Ayala Museum.  Don’t know who Futura is?  Read up and get educated about a legend in the graffiti/design/art scene.  Having shown works next to the likes of Keith Haring, Jean-Michel Basquiat, as well as designed tour posters for The Clash it is just natural that he continues to be sought after for collaboration projects as well as for his own art.

Gong Xi Fa Cai

Spent the day yesterday taking in the sights and sounds of Chinatown in Binondo, Manila during Chinese New Year.  It always strikes me as interesting how multifaceted Filipino culture is and the festivities on Ongpin Street put that on full display yesterday.  There were tons of people, fire breathers, dancers, more people, dragons, and did I mention there were lots of people there?

All in all, the food was fantastic, the company was great, and Chinese New Year in Chinatown was incredible.

Dumplings made to order right in front of you.

We went with some chives and pork dumplings.

And some pork and black fungus.

Image

This pork asado is not from Dong Bei, but it was still really good and worthy of documentation.
