So chuffed my artsy friends and I were able to go to the last day of this year’s STREETCON at Al Ghurair Centre, the whole street art festival was on from April 23 to May 2.

Living and working here in Dubai, the fast-paced life and work always gets in the way, it’s funny how much effort it takes to gather people up and enjoy each other’s company just for fun’s sake and nothing else–neither for work nor business.

I’m lucky to have friends who are art enthusiasts and are willing to take time and come to such events and nurture our life after work. We’ve been attending different art exhibits in Al Serkal, Sikka Art Fair, Street Nights and poetry events as well such as Punch and Poeticians that happens once in a month or every two months. There’s one I’m really interested to attend which is Poetry Slam! That’s next on my list!

I’m no poet, I don’t paint on actual canvass. Make-up is my channel for creativity and a little bit of writing (I at least try to nurture and develop the writer in me). I just enjoy the company of creative people who does the weirdest things like I do.
