Pinoy Products That Soon to be Raved For

Two nights ago, I happened to be at the media launch of the Global Pinoy Bazaar 2012 at the Indie Arts Home, Fort Bonifacio.  The Yabang Pinoy Filipino Pride movement celebrates its 8th year by celebrating PHmade products worth buying.   Together with fellow bloggers we were introduced to their mission and vision of seeing locally made products with utmost quality and ingenuity strive the existing market with pride.  I guess I do agree with them that we can also create brands to match imported ones in terms of uniqueness and sustainability.   Topping off with the advocacy behind every name brands.  

PHmade’s tagline “It’s Worth Buying For” encourages each Filipino to think twice before spending: is it really worth buying for? Yabang Pinoy believes that small things, when done together, can create a big difference. If each Filipino became conscious of where he spends one peso, he will understand how each choice affects himself, fellow Filipinos, and the country. PHmade also aspires to influence Filipino entrepreneurs into supporting local natural and human resources.
Above is collage of photos of the people behind the Yabang Pinoy Movement.  The people who believe in the goodness, industry and creativity of each Filipino.  With all that said let me introduce the 8th Global Pinoy Bazaar which will be on November 10-11 at the Rockwell Tent, Makati City.   It's going to be one heck of a shopping experience for sure.   I'm actually right now saving for it.  I'm planning to do my Early Christmas shopping there.
Here are just some of the products we got acquainted with.

It helped Sewn to become what it is now. I truly believe in their mission to be proud of what we Filipinos have.”

  1. Joined! To support Yabang Pinoy, of course is to purchase products with partnership to the org. Also, by getting in to the bazaar and know more of how Filipinos can be inventive and authentic!

  2. I can support Yabang Pinoy with their cause by patronizing the products showcased during their bazaar at Rockwell. I already have my eyes set on those flats. :)

  3. I can support Yabang Pinoy by being an advocate of the products that they showcase and spread the news to everyone else! :D


I would love to hear your thoughts on my post, care for a comment?
