Since I was a kid I am so fascinated with this kind of house… I remember we had our own hut but without stairs… but my Aunts and Lola built another one for keeping some other things purposes… there, I played alone because no one lives there. I put my toys on the “bangerahan” (I don’t know how others call it.. it’s like a kitchen) and would pretend cooking and washing clothes alone, sometimes with my younger cousin or little bro or the kid in our neighborhood.
I felt like that I was home inside the hut. The breeze of the air was deferent, the coolness of the floor, the creaking sound of the bamboo… I love those things… and I am still wishing that I could own one standing beside the beach.
Few days ago a fellow deviant artist asked me to sign up on their forum KUBO…
Here’s how they defined the KUBO FORUM:
“Bahay KUBO kahit munti ang halaman roon ay sari sari…”
The name KUBO was derived from a famous Filipino Folk song “Bahay Kubo” which became an inspiration to a dream of unity and shelter different forms of expressive art forms from traditional art to contemporary digital art. Kubo not just shelter for Filipino Natives artist but also explore and collaborate with other nationality. Kubo is a home for anyone who wants to share and learn from everybody. Respecting each other’s individual beliefs. [ more ]
