i'm not really an art collector nor do i have the funds to be able to bid for a lot of these items, but here are a few of my personal favorites from the list!

i am a huge fan of he who has been dubbed the rockstar of philippine design, kenneth cobonpue! after hearing him speak at a seminar on art that i recently attended, i became an even bigger fan of this genius. this is his piece harry rocking stool.

i love the playful sculptures of michael cacnio.. it always takes me back to my childhood! this is a piece he created specially for this unicef auction, ang munting pangarap.

this is such a cool table by vito selma. he calls it geo table. if i had my own home, i would love to have this in it.

the one and only ramon orlina donated this piece called a mother's enduring love. it is so beautiful.

i really like this painting mag-ina by dominic rubio. i love how it is so traditionally filipino, and how it focuses on the value of family.

who girl wouldn't love to own a celestina?! this is the nena saguil minaudiere. maybe when i save up enough money i can afford an exquisite clutch like this!

i am so proud to be friends with mich dulce. this girl has gone a long way and is doing crazy well in the international scene! she donated a minuature version of a hat she made for adam ant!

and to all boys who love football or girls who love football players, this is your chance! i am a huge football fan too! up for bids is an experience package with the azkals! join them in the dugout and watch their world cup qualifier match on july 3 from your exclusive seat!

absolutely all proceeds will go to raising awareness and funds for all of unicef's goals.. education, providing children with health care, access to safe water and sanitation, and protection from violence and abuse.
