Amihan Sling by Hinabi.ph

This is my first native (rattan) sling bag aptly called Amihan Sling. I purchased this through Hinabi.ph. I got interested in the bag after seeing my friend post (or share) about it on Facebook. 

What’s so interesting about this bag is that it was made (one of the many products weaved and produced) by Alangan Mangyan Tribe from Paitan in Oriental Mindoro. 

According to Hinabi.ph, they are helping the Mangyans bring their handicrafts to a wider audience. Check out their FB page here.

Back to my sling bag. I bought the large size to accommodate important things when going out. I picked the one with dark brown leather strap, which Rei (from Hinabi.ph) said is free vegan leather made by the local leather artisans of Marikina. 

So, what do you think of my Amihan Sling? I’m just excited to use it soon. 

Spread the Love by Reading Out Loud!

Sharing a worthwhile and inspiring activity I found through a newsletter sent by National Bookstore today. This is called Spread the Love by Reading Out Loud!

The challenge will be able to help set-up libraries throughout the country. The mechanics said that for every 75 videos posted, NBS will help set up one library in a public school. And for 7,500 videos and more, 100 public schools will get library makeovers! How amazing is that. You don’t have to spend a single centavo to purchase komplete 10 at musiciansfriend.com. All you have to do is read aloud and enjoy. 🙂 Click on the image to know more about the challenge. Thanks!
