UAE people heart this shirt right now. Good job, Adidas! I almost got one. I realized that I don’t want so many team mates for a shirt. Only then and there I’m reminded of the stuff that I got from Kulturang Pilipino store before I left Manila.
Even if there are no photos, seeing the ‘menu’, err prints on this shirt bridges my homesickness for Filipino nibbles back home.
(Back print) Tuyo, taho, bagoong, pinakbet, ginataan, puto bumbong: I learned to appreciate more since I came here. Sometimes a person needs to be distant to get a clearer picture of how rich is her country’s culture.
I also got this charming black shirt with print of Philippine map and of its country code. I’m wearing this soon. This may sound strange to you, but I feel prouder when I use very Pinoy stuff while I’m here.
And this one’s the bomb. (The bag is not it its nicest form/has folded line because I immediately took a snap right after I sorted my luggage last January.) I know there are several eco bags everywhere, but I find this one a stand out because it’s made in the Philippines (heehee), the salakot part is indeed weaved from native materials, and the caption makes so much sense,
Tatak ng pagiging
Galing pa ito
Sa aking Lolo
Minana ko pa ito
Noong isang siglo.
