Insanity For A Cause

Evolution of Insanity

Took a break from the chaos in PFW and went to 121 Bar and Restaurant in Allegro Center instead for the book launch of Haresh Daswani‘s Evolution of Insanity. I don’t personally know the writer, was just sent there to pick up the book for my friend Tet Roberts, since there was alcohol included in the invite, I happily obliged. 🙂

Not just a book launch

Aside from the book launch, two charity foundations were also present to spread awareness about their advocacy- Operation Smile and My Shelter Foundation.

Operation Smile is a volunteer medical service that provides reconstructive surgery and related health care to indigent children and young adults with cleft lip, cleft palate and other childhood facial deformities. “Changing Lives One Smile at a Time

On the other hand, My Shelter Foundation is the organization responsible for this video that actually went viral on Facebook.

 

That night, they also auctioned some paintings by young Filipino artists for the benefit of the said foundations. Blame it on 3 bottles of San Mig and a glass of rum coke, but I actually fought on a bidding war for this painting which artist’s name I forgot (*perhaps if I didn’t take a photo I would not remember how the painting itself looks like)…so yes, I won the bidding, and that painting will be hanging on our wall. Hopefully they deliver it very soon!

Call it drunk bidding, but drunk or not, I would probably still purchase that painting…hey, it’s for a good cause, and I like the painting!…and when you give something without expecting anything in return, the universe will make its sweet little way to return your kindness…and right before the night ended, they had a raffle and I won an overnight stay at VIVERE plus buffet in their sky lounge for 2… (*see what I mean!!!)

 

**Quick question:: How do you feel upon seeing this piece of art?!? Or does it even say/convey anything to you?!?Let me know your thoughts…thank you! (*just fortifying my justification that I made a good decision in impulsively purchasing this…LOL)
