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. 

College Graduation Outfit

My daughter will be wearing this simple white dress on her graduation day next month.

We also purchased this cute but elegant flat shoes to match her dress.

And as an accessory, we got this small black bag that can be converted into a wallet. We were thinking of a nice hairstyle that would look good on her while wearing this outfit. Can you suggest a graduation hairstyle for my daughter? 🙂

Trendy jacket

My son got this jacket for P500. He’s eyeing this jacket for some time now and promised to go back to the mall once he raised the amount. Like his sister, Kyle loves to wear jacket and has been collecting a few pieces since junior high school. I wish to get the same design in size xxl or xxxl perhaps.

On a different note, the world’s largest musical instrument retailer is selling doumbek, an instrument that belongs to drum and percussion family. For those who love exotic instrument, doumbek is for you.
