PHMADE PRODUCTS WORTH BUYING FOR

The Yabang Pinoy Filipino Pride movement celebrates its 8th year by celebrating PHmade products worth buying, at the 8th Global Pinoy Bazaar on November 10-11 at the Rockwell Tent, Makati City.

Global Pinoy Bazaar 2012 will feature a lineup of brands and products made with 100 percent Filipino Love and Pride: in ladies’, men’s, and children’s apparel, accessories, jewelry, bags and shoes, beachwear, travel accessories, home décor, home and wellness products, as well as Filipino art and design.

I absolutely love Global Pinoy Bazaar. I have been actively promoting and participating in it since 2009 with the exception of 2011 when I was based in Naga City and busy with the bar.

Here are my favorite local brands:

Yabang Pinoy Home Brand: Agos Pilipinas

‘Agos Pilipinas is a brand fit for the active yet laidback philosophy of the eager outdoor addict. Agos brings out the passion for the tropilokal spots through its shirts, sandos, barabags and rashguards. Agos is more than just a label. Its the outdoor instinct. It’s a lifestyle.’

I first saw their booth at the Global Pinoy Bazaar 2009 and bought myself a CamSur wallet. I also wanted their surfing shirts and rash guards and absolutely loved their barabags! I bought two barabags from them – that we use to carry our snorkel and fins about. I blogged about the barabags here but the photos are missing because they were embedded from their Facebook account. Note to self: download and have own copies of photos so they don’t go missing. My barabag is by the way stuck at our house in Pili, Cam Sur because I brought my stuff there earlier this year when I was planning to go see and swim with the Butandings of Sorsogon. They have new stuff this weekend and I’m raring to check them out.

They are a team of Filipinos that ‘funkifies’ the world with passionate, like-minded people through functional graphic-designed products and happiness-inducing events.

Now, Punchdrunk Panda carries ladies’ and men’s footwear, camera straps and other fun stuff.

Agos Pilipinas Barabags!

Friends and their Interests By March 27, 2011 Tags: , , , No Comments

I first caught a glimpse of the Barabags at the Agos Pilipinas booth at the Global Pinoy Bazaar 2010 last November. I saw them, asked about them but didn’t really think about how useful they were — until I saw a photo of it with fins inside! I love my fins. I got them from El Nido Resorts in 2005 and have been toting it with me everywhere since. It came with a plastic bag but it’s been years and the bag has long since been ripped in all its travels. I was in search of a bag for my beloved fins and the Barabags came in just at the right time!

Except that when I realized it, the stocks, or more like the color I wanted, which was black of course, had long been sold out.

So when I saw the Agos Pilipinas tweet about the Barabags for Summer, I wasted no time in ordering and paying! I just had to get one this time! Well, especially this time that I’m flying and zipping around the country and the world at odd schedules (bara-barang lakad talaga!)

Barabags para sa mas bara-barang lakad!

How can I resist these? They look absolutely adorable!
