    v. Paghahambing ng mga magkakasingkahulugan - Mav at Cenon

    Unit price  per 

    In this series of new sculpture photographs by Cenon at Mav, they configured images that evoke notions of rest and recovery. In creating Mekanik, like a machine, they tried to compose images of repair, of trying to assemble one self. The scattered pieces of texture, tools and objects is a constellation of emotive color and composition. It is not exact to what these objects are, but it’s an invitation to look into one’s psyche in a time of a difficult circumstance. As if it’s like a candy-colored misery, the color of their mind. What pain extracts is the renewal of wisdom, of testing the limits of endurance, of how far one can go. The draping seems like a seabed floor for crispy anemones and trash waiting to be uncovered, to be defined. It’s a layered visual of uncovering, assembling, realizing, becoming into one vis-a-vis shattering, escaping, exploding into infinity. It’s a cycle, a moment that takes some time to realize, to heal, to unbound — to forever. -D.Tumala

    What people say about The Den Manila

    A hole in the wall coffee shop that can be found in Escolta, The menu is in fact interesting and I went for the Bergs paired with Toast topped with Nutella Spread. Fell in love with the grilled cheese with tomato dip. The quality of the bread is good and the cheese is just as great.

    We finally got to try out this place! It was quite hidden, but I loved the feel of privacy when you're hanging out here. I tried the recommended Spicy Tuna pasta & loved it too.

    Great place to work around the Old Manila area! Ordered their Berg's coffee, and was surprised at how big the glass I got was. Caffeine kick was also superb.

    Great for a change of scenery from work from home setups. Good food and coffee! Chic ambiance.

    They also support local artisans to display their craft at their cafe. The staff are friendly, like really friendly. You will always have something nice to deposit in your memory bank whenever you visit this place.

    Finally, a place with great coffee and beautiful people in the heart of Manila.

    I love the vibe and the coffee. I love the ambiance, finally a coffeeshop in downtown manila that doesn't scream "franchise" Thank you for supporting Escolta!

    When I heard the story of a coffee shop in Escolta—that it has come of age (yes, a cafe has found itself), it made me feel wistful. It’s weird. I never knew I could relate to an establishment (well, technically, it’s not just the literal coffee shop, of course) when it says, “It knows itself better.”
