It’s beau­ti­ful to watch Christina Bart­ges, oth­er­wise known as Miss Bad­kiss, Manila’s hottest fe­male DJ. On Wed­nes­days, you’ll find her at Pro­hi­bi­tion at Dillinger’s. On Thurs­days, Fri­days, or Satur­day nights, this gor­geous Filip­ina-Ger­man per­forms at M Café or at the Rocket Room. If not work­ing, she spends time with part­ner, DJ Kris­tian Her­nan­dez, and son, Maceo.

How are you th­ese days?

A bit tired. I’ve been play­ing at least four nights a week. I’ve also been tak­ing Maceo to school in the morn­ings.

How old is Maceo?

He is turn­ing two this month! He loves to dance and says some Ta­ga­log words al­ready. He tries to say sabaw and baba.

Has he trav­eled with you?

He has been to Mu­nich with me.

Do you miss Mu­nich?

I miss the amaz­ing pub­lic trans­port there. They have all the buses, trams, and an un­der­ground sub­way. I miss the parks and gar­dens that are within the city.

What do you like about Manila?

Ev­ery­thing is hap­pen­ing in Manila. The stores are open till late in the evening, and there is al­ways a place to eat even af­ter work.

Any travel plans soon?

I am plan­ning to go to Europe some­time June or July.

What’s in your travel bag?

In my carry-on air­plane bag I have a lip balm, mois­tur­izer, candy, a read­ing ma­te­rial, neck pil­low, head­phones, and my iPod.

What’s next for Christina Bart­ges?

I would like to get more in­volved in our fam­ily busi­ness. We are de­vel­op­ing our land in Batan­gas. Maybe have an­other baby. Now it’s time for word play. Please tell us the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the word: Art. Ad­mire and love it.
