Kultura Filipino's Christmas and Crafts Market

Thursday, October 13, 2011

I was up early yesterday to go to SM Makati's Kultura event, where they featured sooo many different Filipino holiday finds!

Kahit antok pa and almost ma-late, I was welcomed by this symphony of Pinoy music--lively Christmas songs pa talaga ang tugtugan! :) Nakakagising!

Very festive mood!

Shoppers everywhere! I saw lots of moms and even foreigners really stocking their carts and baskets with very Filipino panregalo and pandisplay sa Pasko!

Amigos  and amigas greet each other here and there. :) Ang good vibes ng ganap! :)

Pasko na!

 I met Keigh, Ava, and Angel--my fellow bloggers, so we can explore the different Holiday crafts and decor collection:

These clutches caught my eyes...Super pretty! And very Pinoy ang materials. <3

 I can see myself using these for events!

A grand belen, a very Filipino Christmas eh? :)

Traditional lanterns aka parol, crafted by local artisans. :) 

They even have books section! :) 

More nice bags from "Crafts for a Cause" section--most prob my favorite area in Kultura:

These bracelets are made of the metals used to open mga canned softdrinks! Cute!

Edgy! Diba! :)

...Nakabuo din sila ng bags out of this material! :D

Very familiar...these products made by inmates from recycled materials:

Para hindi na pahirapan ang balutan ng regalo! :)

Oooh, my watch-lover friend Marj will love these cases!

Nung debut ko, ang pinaka madaming nareceive kong regalo ay lamps haha:

Pretty tables! <3 Reminded me of Banapple or Chilis...

Pinoy toma-an!

Yummy dried mangoes!

I was taking these pictures with Chai Muncal, we both fell in love with the brass trees! :)

 We spent most of our time chikahan inside the cafe near Kultura, where they served us really Filipino dishes...Ang pinaka favorite namin ni Keigh ay the different cheese dips! Went for another round, hehe! ;)

Picture-picture before leaving!
