Style meets Culture

Saturday, April 18, 2009

Last April 16, 2009 we dropped by Lake Sebu to purchase cultural decorations for our bar. We are scheduled to deliver stocks that day to Tacurong, Isulan, Sto. NiƱo and Surallah we were ahead of our scheduled time so we decided to just have the side trip to Lake Sebu since it was just 20 kilometers from Surallah. We had a snack at Punta Isla and we went to their mini Museum. We purchased our decorations at the "Princess House" owned by cooperative of T'boli women there. The people there were very friendly and they offered their best products to us and also offering me to try on their traditional dress for picture taking. They were thankful to us for our plans in displaying and promoting their products in bar. We also bought the very famous "tinalak" it is a cloth which they weave themselves.
