Christmas Shopping with Global Pinoy Bazaar at the Rockwell Tent

Global Pinoy Bazaar 201OVE

The Yabang Pinoy – Filipino Pride movement celebrates its 5th year by celebrating Filipino Love and Pride.

Together with Yabang Pinoy’s community of Filipino entrepreneurs committed to Filipino artistry and craftsmanship, Yabang Pinoy will once again stage the 6th Global Pinoy Bazaar on Nov 6-7, 2010 at Rockwell Tent, Makati City.

Global Pinoy Bazaar 2010 will feature businesses with 100% Filipino Love and Pride, showcasing ladies’, men’s & children’s apparel, accessories, jewelries, bags & shoes, home decor, beachwear, home and wellness products, as well as Pinoy art and design.

“We believe in buying Philippine-made products.  Our products are just as good as the products from other countries. We have a lot of good ideas and our workmanship is also very good.  We like the vision of the Yabang Pinoy movement as the title  “Yabang Pinoy” says it all.  We can never move forward as a people if we do not believe and take pride in what we have and what we can achieve,” shared Tessa Coscolluela of Tiny Wonder.

Ea de los Santos of outdoor apparel brand Agos says: “We (with partner Mica Ferrer) started as Yabang Pinoy volunteers three years ago. Being part of the group inspired us to start our own local brand. Since there are only a few brands promoting the Philippine outdoor lifestyle, we saw the opportunity and decided to give it a try. Now we can prove that there is really a growing market in the outdoor/extreme lifestyle world: one great example is surfing. It was not hard for us to come up with this business because it is also our lifestyle. Now it will be our second year as merchants and we realize that Global Pinoy Bazaar is not just a bazaar. It is a celebration of local brands growing together and of Filipinos who continue to support local products and ideas.”

“Shoppers can expect unique, quality products for the comfort and safety of mommy and baby at reasonable prices. Our products are made to provide unique and helpful solutions for each mother and child,” says Karen Lopez of MomTreneur.

As early as now, mark you calendars for the best Filipino Christmas shopping experience.

How To Start Your Personal Blog

Here’s a video of Hannah Villasis, author of the blog FlairCandy.com. Hannah won the 2009 award for “Best Personal Blog” at the Digital Filipino E-Commerce summit (DigitalFilipino.com) held at the Intercontinental Hotel. FlairCandy gives us a brief talk on how to successfully start your own personal blog

Some highlights from Hannah’s talk:

  • Put yourself into the blog
  • Be just who you are
  • You are your own personal brand
  • Your own personal brand will connect with others like you and that will be your niche
  • You can be funny, crazy, goofy, sexy or whatever, your readers will relate to you if its you
  • If you want to communicate to your audience, it’s no longer about the super models, it’s about just you and me, the personal bloggers

Things I Wish People Knew When Driving in the Philippines

Philippines-Traffic-crazy-manila-insane-jams-small-streets-lots-of-cars

Driving in the Philippines isn’t quite like it is anywhere else. Here are some things I wish people would think of while driving when in the Philippines.

Philippines-traffic-jams-crazy

Patience isn’t just a virtue… it’s a flippin necessity!
You can start your day off by smiling and keeping the little things exactly what they’re supposed to be – little. Or, you could totally BLOW UP and frustrate yourself at that one guy who cut you off on the road. It’ll really reflect the rest of your day. Your choice.
Size doesn’t matterJust coz you drive a bigger car doesn’t mean that you’re the king of the road.
Motorcycles, bikes and pedestrians are people too you know!
Pedestrians should have the right of way
I mean they’re walking… you’re driving…. you hit them… they die…. So can we just wait an extra few seconds to let them cross the street?
Did honking your horn that much really make things move faster?
Like really? Quit being a horn-y-bastard (get it… ‘horn-y’…. no…? Nevermind!)
Mind your manners
If you insist on flipping me off every time something doesn’t go your way, then I insist that you also say thank you during times that they do – like when I let you cut in front of me
The evil stare makes you look like a punkDon’t give me a stare down like you’re gonna do something while you drive off and hide behind your locked car. It just makes you look like a wuss
Try smiling, it makes everyone’s days better
They invented this thing called “Trash Cans”USE IT!
Stop throwing stuff out your window! This is YOUR WORLD and YOUR COUNTRY too!
It would be nice if you were niceIt’ll make this long road trip better for me and you
I know you have somewhere to go and you’re in a rush, so is everyone else. Can’t we all just get along?

Hope you’re all having a wonderful driven and driving day!
