Local Product from Bicol - Nostalgia # 48

Haide IbanezPhotobucket
So sorry for my late  entry folks, we attended a station f the cross this morning and  wasn't able to  blog.  Anyhow, my entry is a local bag that was given to me by my friend Haide (photo on the right) from Bicol. It is a bag  made from abaca.  Then if you can see the  key chain, it is made of pili nut, a nut that is mostly grows in Bicol.

I haven't use this bag yet but I showcased it at the  cultural fair here in our place.  Thanks a lot Haidz!

Let me tell you a little bit about Haide.  She is  one of my classmates  and became close friends back in college.  We also went together in graduate school but unfortunately she did not forgo with her course.  She  confessed to me when we were having a retreat during college that she  did not like me during our freshman year because I look "suplada" because of my eye glasses and when I did  my report in History, I delivered it without reading.  So she thought, I am one of those "know it all" student.  Anyhow, on our sophomore year, that was when she realized I am not the person that she  initially perceived to be.  So I became her Ate in school.  Haide is the one in the middle on the small photo I copied from FB.  She is now married and on its way of their first baby.  Congratulations and may you have a healthy pregnancy and baby!

The bag made from abacca will surely be a hit there in the US. It becomes an exotic item there. Your friend found out the real you just in time for you to be close friends. Great that you found her at Facebook and learned new details about her private life. Thanks for the post. God bless you all always.
