Sari Suki 2050

The Filipino Sari-Sari store has always been the Philippine's staple convenience store; long before 7-Eleven had taken over our streets we've had our trusty Sari-Sari stores in every corner of the barangay, village, subdivision, and barrio. With the Sari-Sari store being around for so long, would it survive 35 years into the future? What products would they be equipped with by then? What services would they offer? 

VSOON, a New York-based design research studio, also wondered what the future would be for the Sari-Sari store. As a result VSOON created their own version of what the future Sari-Sari store would look like, what products and services they would offer, and created a general feel of what a futuristic Sari-Sari store would be in their SARI SUKI 2050 exhibition.

SARI SUKI 2050 will be opening on August 20, at the 856 Gallery, A.S. Fortuna St., Mandaue City, Cebu. For more information on their exhibition you can check out there event page here.

Tie One

 Jonathan See Lim AKA Tie One (1979–1998), was a graffiti artist based in the San Francisco Bay Area. He was well known in the graffiti community for his aggressive style of graffiti art and the large amount of work he produced. Lim was born in the Philippines to ethnic-Chinese parents. During his early childhood, his family moved to California. -pilipinas-streetplan Saint Patrick’s Day has always been difficult to celebrate because on this day eleven years ago, our friend and soldier Tie, Jonathan See Lim, was murdered in the Tenderloin of San Francisco on Turk and Taylor. A man named William Porter shot him in the back of his head while Tie was begining to climb a rooftop to pain. Of cource the SF police covered it up as a robbery and our 18 year old little buddies death went unvindicated. He was a major influence to us all and his memory will live on in our hearts. - saberone
