StuckAtHome: Art-Making In Quarantine Days

Making sense with this strange times... It’s been two months since the quarantine has started. Everyone of us must be tired of this so-called ‘quarantine routine’— staying up late, sleeping, taking online classes, and keeping our pajamas all day. Doing our best to continue our lives that has been drastically changed by the pandemic disease.

I’m used to how fast-paced this world is, everything that we do conditions us to be a survivor, racing towards our imaginary finish line without fulfillment. It took a community quarantine—this opportunity for me to have found spaces and self-reflection to my creative endeavors that I never had before. With the increase in downtime, I was able to make many more artworks. I tried to do it at my own pace—no pressure and no creative restrictions. Exploring myself to different mediums and techniques that I never used, such as pastel colors, colored pencils, and even make-up.

I don’t usually set any particular way of how should I make it but let my emotions to breath with the experience. Most of the subjects of my artworks (Curacion, Deja Vu, & Epitome) entail personal perception and self-reflection. I was also able to spare some time making photo-based artwork and share it with my subjects.

Art-Making is a break from my quarantine routine that enables me to express what words cannot express. This pandemic may have taken so many alterations in our lives, know more about yourselves by making some art! Maybe about your childhood memories, movies, or just what you want to make. Let this time be your creative outlet.

Cold Food

The most thrilling and delightful moment of any school day is opening up your baon during breaks. There is always so much excitement in unveiling your homemade meal and snacks housed inside matching heat-insulating containers. Because preparing packed meals is an age-old tradition of showing parental love, loved ones pour effort into curating a nutritious meal accompanied by a selection of side dishes, desserts, and beverages daily; it reminds us that we are being taken care of, even from far away.

Baon plays a significant role in a Filipino childhood. Almost every Filipino child comes to school with baon made especially for them by their parents or household helpers. Even Filipinos in the labor force continue to bring baon for varying reasons: to save money, recycle leftovers, cater to personal taste, or attend to special needs. Nonetheless, eating your baon is a heart-warming experience that allows Filipinos to bring a piece of home along with them wherever they go.

Even other cultures practice making packed lunch. In Japan, mothers create bento--Japanese meals in partitioned boxes. Because of the popularity of bento, trends have emerged, such as the Kyaraben, or character-themed bento. Naturally, Japanese parents and students began competing for who had the cutest and tastiest bento, and this is similar to what I have witnessed in my own childhood. I remember seeing my classmates sharing their snacks and lunches. They would compare and boast about their parents' or yayas’ cooking. In my case, I never had the chance to join in the competition or indulge in homemade cooking. Up until this day, I have never brought any baon to school.

For a long time, I envied others. As trivial or petty as it may seem, not having baon became a problem for my grade school self. During that time, I had to sit in a separate cafeteria away from my friends because the kids who bought food were assigned to sit elsewhere. You could consider me spoiled, but I wanted to experience something most kids did. I had food at home, so what made it so hard to bring some with me to school?

Now that I am on my final year in high school I have come to realize the benefits of purchasing my own food. Since I spent on food everyday, I learned to budget my allowance at a young age. Over the years, I learned to practice self-control whenever I wanted to eat more greasy fries and drink sweetened beverages. I have tasted the strangest viands at the school cafeterias, and I have repeatedly satiated myself over my latest delicious discoveries. Despite the struggles, I am thankful that I have never had baon because of what I have learned. Not to mention, I never had to experience eating cold food.
