Welcome to my visual diary. My name is Ryann Reyes and I am from Cebu, Philippines. I am a lover of natural light and photography is an ongoing and consuming passion. I also run this SUPER AMAZING BLOG in my spare time.
Yesterday, Artwork celebrated its 5th Anniversary in Cebu with the Artwork 5x5 event with live music by Up Dharma Down, and a t-shirt exhibit featuring 5x5 t-shirt designers at Ayala Center Cebu.
Truth be told, I really wasn’t after the shirts, (although they’re all very awesome especially the metronome shirt which I will get soon) I was more excited to see Up Dharma Down live, for the first time! It’s been a while since they last came here so this opportunity to see them live in my own backyard was perfect. If there’s one OPM act that I’ve always loved since day one, it’s definitely Up Dharma Down. That night they performed my favorites like Taya, Sana, Oo and Tadhana. And they sound perfectly amazing live.
After I had a photo with Armi, I felt very gutted after I turned down her invitation to watch their gig at Handuraw later that evening, which is a million times better than the one hour set they performed earlier. Her cute frown and her beautiful freckled face will forever be etched in my memory. Nonetheless, I had an amazing time watching them perform live. I’m really looking forward to seeing them again. Also, a huge thank you to Artwork for bringing Up Dharma Down here in Cebu.
P.S. Armi looks absolutely divine in the first photo, right?
This me and Armi Millare of Up Dharma Down at the Cebu leg of Artwork 5x5 at Ayala Center Cebu a while ago. I was able to chat with her a bit (Like 20 seconds! Haha!) and she’s really nice in person. Also, they’re so amazing live.
Will post more photos, and a live video of my favorite Up Dharma Down song, soon.
