The Block Party at the Makiling Park in Ayala Alabang.


Like what the prince's kiss is to Sleeping Beauty, the Brush Lettering Workshop of Anina Rubio (read my blog post about Crafternoons PH) woke up the right side of my brain..  I've been scribbling and drawing non-stop since then.  So when my friend Patty of mrspcuyugan.com asked me if I want to tag along to The Block Party, which is just in our village, I immediately said yes!




The Block Party is a food, music, and arts festival and I'm happy that Makiling Park in Ayala Alabang is the venue.  I remember feeling this excitement eons ago when St James Bazaar was just your usual neighborhood bazaar.




There are a lot of great finds during The Block Party but these are the ones that catch my eye.






I want to get this chihuahua bag for my sister.  So cute!




Hey Kessy is also at The Block Party with all their little knick knacks that I want to hoard.  I am eyeing that set of watercolor postcards!




Check out these cute little notebooks from Two Thirty Sixty.






I still have my Sunday Paper notebook as a part of the goodie bag from Crafternoons PH's Brush Lettering Workshop so I didn't get any notebooks that day.  But I got a scribble pad and a couple of Sakura pens from Craft Central.






Simoy Ng Haraya sells different kinds of scents with unique Filipino names.







While walking around the park, these funny posters catch my attention.  Doesn't it remind you of Senator Miriam and her pick up lines?








Love these hats and caps from Harpoon.  I'm sure T will also love these!






The workshops during The Block Party are not only for adults, but for kids as well.  




During The Little Apprentice Preschool workshop, I run into my friend Ivy.  Remember her wedding (read my blog post about Fred & Ivy Day)?  She now has a little one... Everyone meet Mavi. Such a cutie!






There are a lot of food choices during The Block Party but I go directly to the booth of El Chupacabra because I've always wanted to try their tacos.






What a fun, fun afternoon! Good thing T is able to follow for the food part :D




Thank you for letting me tag along, Patty! Til our next arts and crafts thing ;)

    1. It's done already but they have events again. Not sure when the next one is. As for the photo shoot, it's a private village so you have to ask permission from the village association :)
