I said hello to October by visiting the much awaited regional trade fair organized by DTI Bicol. I couldn't wait for the formal opening (which is later this morning) so I decided to visit the venue a day earlier to check the ingress and also spot some products I can recommend for you. Though most of the exhibitors are still busy unloading their boxes, I was able to manage to snap some items that are interesting and very affordable. Here's a sneak peek of some of the items you can buy when you visit OKB @18.
CUTE CHRISTMAS DECOR: I highly recommend these Christmas angels to be part of your decoration this holiday season. You can also give it as a gift and the good thing is, it is VERY affordable! You can get this high quality handcrafted angel for 40 pesos only!!! You can also buy a set of Christmas trees for only Php 350. I saw these buri handicrafts around the Sorsogon booth area.
BAG IT! Bags. Bags. Bags. And lots of it!!! Now imagine yourself in a bag heaven where you can find unique items that will surely suit your style! They have different bags that are made of different high quality traditional materials and weaved by artisans of Bicol. Is it expensive?! Definitely not!!! For as low as Php 50 you can already get a purse, give them Php 95 and you get a sling bag. These are some of the items I saw during ingress but there will be more choices from October 2-5, 2014 so make sure to dropby and start collecting! :-)
SPOTTED! Photo opt with Iriga City delegation headed by Mayor GangGang Alfelor during their booth preparation this afternoon. I am excited to see their final set-up but even right now, based from the perspective I saw, I definitely think Iriga City deserves an award!!! Ohh even Ms.Lydia, the owner of J.Emmanuel Pastries and House of Pili (one of my favorite pasalubong stops in Bicol) joked that she might pass the crown to Iriga City for having the best booth among all exhibitors! :-)
SOMETHING TO EAT AND DRINK? Don't worry foodies!!! You can definitely find top quality food and beverage products from different booths showcasing the best of the best from each provinces of Bicol. Afterall, Bicol is known for many delicious desserts, dishes and more!!!
