Zerothreetwo Conversations: Interviews with the Creative Class


Aug 26, 2019

Starting a business is a huge creative pursuit. It requires plenty of knowledge and patience, but at the same time, you need to come up with creative solutions to problems.

 

One of the biggest problems when starting a business is making that choice to start. That's something I was particularly interested in when I talked to Bunny Pages. He started his business at age 49, by many standards, it was late in the game, but obviously worked well for Bunny.

 

What started as small kiosks and a school in a garage is now a leader in Cebu’s growing food industry. With household name restaurants like Lantaw, House of Lechon, Mooon Cafe, and Thirsty just to name a few, they are one of the biggest names in the food industry.

 

In this podcast, we talked about the decision to start a business, his humble beginnings, the main purpose of their business, maximizing return on luck, blue oceans vs. red oceans, and closing a business.

 

Enjoy the episode!

This episode is sponsored by Qube Gallery. A progressive art space in Cebu, Philippines. Providing network and exhibit opportunities for contemporary artists with whom they work closely with and promote beyond the local reach.

Currently in Qube – KDLT. His works have been archival in nature, believing that in order to elevate people’s consciousness, mundane things and happenings around should be given high regard. His works delved much on Elias as his subject, by which he likened himself and retrospectively find parallelism and similarities in his growing up years. To date, Mundane Rituals pushes further the story of his son and that of his to own to what resembles and celebrates the familiarity of the common and ordinary experiences others have imbibed and practiced. It is the universality of those mundane activities that bind and connects him as one with the people, with every breathing and moving individual.

Visit Qube Gallery to view Kdlt’s ‘Mundane Rituals’.
