Art Bar Serendra – the Newest Place to Hang-Out and Be Creative

Art Bar Serendra – the Newest Place to Hang-Out and Be Creative
Hello ladies and all fellow crafters reading this post!
Hoping that you’ve got a lovely day creating something beautiful and inspiring.

I remember when my Mom once told me that I was born with innate creativeness in my veins. My playmates then are so happy when their parents brining new toys and dresses every week – while me, I am very much thrilled when my Mom and Dad brining me new colored pens and papers, or even those crocheting threads. My friends can’t relate to my happiness, and I seldom boast my new coloring book collection, however that happiness still so precious to me until now.

I still remember the exact day when my Dad gave gifted my first Staedtler pencil collection at the age of 5, and no kids then are using Staedtler because it’s expensive and it’s been using my most designing students. But a five-year old in me using a Staedtler pencil is such a luxury – I felt so happy.

My schoolmates then are using the cheapest pencils available because then easily broke it or lost. But my Dad entrusted me to use a quite expensive pencil collection. Then I felt the sense of responsibility.

That’s also the first day that my Dad have taught me the value of learning all fine things in life.
No wonder am all after for the best, because I know I deserve it.

Ahhh memories!

Every day I passed by at Serendra Piazza, and I am pleased that another specialty shop is being opened here. You see my new city – Bonifacio Global City is becoming a hub for most creative minds, with all those regular art exhibits and a venue for most artistic events all open for the public.

When Art Bar Serendra was finally opened last February, am telling you that my childhood memories came back on me. My creative mojo is so excited and to initially feed that, I spend a few minutes having a tour inside.

Situated in Serendra, this location was a specialty bookstore then called Powerbooks for many years. I don't know what happen and they decided to give-up the space, thus Art Bar Serendra comes in.
Art Bar Serendra for those who are not familiar with, is the first specialty store owned by National Bookstore dedicated for the creative artists of the city.

And when you are an artists, you are always looking for the best medium and art supplies, especially when you are into visual arts. Every artists have a distinct taste on their crafts and word “just fine” is unacceptable. An artist’s needs the best of the best for their creations.
