Manila F.A.M.E. International -- Proudly Filipino!

I visited the opening of Manila F.A.M.E. International yesterday at the World Trade Center. The exhibits are AWESOME!!! I had to linger longer at some of the booths to better appreciate and even touch some of the items. As a result, I ran out of time to tour the whole place. I plan to come back tomorrow or Sunday just to feast my senses again on those beautifully-made, proudly-Filipino designs.

Here’s sharing with you some (okay, a lot!) of the things that caught my eyes. I wanted to bring most of them home with me -- if only I could! Unfortunately, majority of the items are sold in bulk and to foreign buyers only since they are export products. But I was told by some of the booth owners that they will be selling some of their stuff when the trade show becomes open to the general public this Saturday and Sunday (April 24-25).
