Agos Pilipinas Barabags!

Friends and their Interests By March 27, 2011 Tags: , , , No Comments

I first caught a glimpse of the Barabags at the Agos Pilipinas booth at the Global Pinoy Bazaar 2010 last November. I saw them, asked about them but didn’t really think about how useful they were — until I saw a photo of it with fins inside! I love my fins. I got them from El Nido Resorts in 2005 and have been toting it with me everywhere since. It came with a plastic bag but it’s been years and the bag has long since been ripped in all its travels. I was in search of a bag for my beloved fins and the Barabags came in just at the right time!

Except that when I realized it, the stocks, or more like the color I wanted, which was black of course, had long been sold out.

So when I saw the Agos Pilipinas tweet about the Barabags for Summer, I wasted no time in ordering and paying! I just had to get one this time! Well, especially this time that I’m flying and zipping around the country and the world at odd schedules (bara-barang lakad talaga!)

Barabags para sa mas bara-barang lakad!

How can I resist these? They look absolutely adorable!


Rediscovering Indie Art & Brown Label

Indie Art & Brown Label was the very first booth we got to at the Global Pinoy Bazaar. I just went absolutely nuts. I loved everything about this shop. From the CD boxes to the pencil boxes to the journals, stationery, stickers and even the pins!

I was just about to take out my wallet to make a purchase of whatever but then.. I saw this!

Waiiiiit! I have this! I bought it at Powerbooks Bonifacio High Street December last year. I made it into my own baby journal. 🙂

I went home and looked for it in my book shelf. And here it is..

Dear baby...

I am so proud of myself! Sure I never got to finish the journal because we moved, I traveled for a bit so on and so forth.. But it was really wonderful to rediscover that journal. It made me sooo happy.
