*Pinay all the way!

Everytime I've seen something Philippine made like this one, it makes me so proud because I do believe in the creativity and ingenuity of the Filipinos. Seeing a product "Made in the Philippines" here in Genève makes me proud to be a Pinay and though some have controversies attached to them I still think about those people who got involved in creating them--the hours,sweat and tears they've put into them cannot be denied.

Aside from the products, there are also people here who has Philippine(without s) as their name but my recent find which got me really giddy is this:

I have to ask Che about this one coz it came from Spain. A Pinay gave this to my daughter who was with my Mama to pacify her while in the bus. Apparently my daughter was so tired and was crying.:( Anyway, she became quiet afterwards and who wouldn't be.

*is a colloquial term for Filipina

Those chocolate cookies do come from Spain!hahaha!

In fact, it´s the hubs fave cookies. While we´re still bf/gf he usually jokes that he loves eating Filipinos and I said whaat?

It was only later when I learned that there are cookies here named as such. :)

It's nice to see a positive reaction regarding this chocolate...back when it first came out only protests where to be heard because the choco's description "dark outside and white inside" seem to be a reference to our color :)

well, we can't be negative always...hope your daughter enjoyed it! Have a lovely week ahead.

Same here, I am so proud of our products. My hubby loves so much our (datu puti)vinegar for "sawsawan", mix with soy sauce, chili and onions.
We have lots of Filipino shops here but I haven't seen like that chocolate yet.
Your daughter is so cute.
Have a great week.

Hi Ate Mayet. We've met already. I hope you still remember me. Madalas kami nila Tats and Fannie sa Alfonso, pero once pa lang ata tayo nagmeet. Happy New Year. I enjoyed reading, para na rin akong nasa Switzerland. :)

Ang cute cute ng anak mo Ate Mayet! And the Filipinos.. is it a chocolate bar? It looks yummy as well. :D

Buti pa ibang bansa, naa-appreciate tayo. Minsan, mismong pinoy, ayaw sa philippine made. look at our economy tuloy.
