This is so difficult to post. Okay let me start. The cosmetic pouch in playful orange and calming blues and Ilocano binakol put together is named Tina. Tina is the writer of BlauEarth, this blog.
It was a complete surprise to be tagged in a post by the owner of MODi, the line of fashion items inspired by the modern Ilocano. Humbled and grateful. Got two Tinas from MODi last night. Kept them in a safe place as of this writing.
Doubly happy to be part of something that helps sustain the fading tradition of inabel. Manang Cion Padayao would have been very kilig. Thank you MODi.
MODi is available at Red Dot, Cafe Bonita and the MODi stall in Robinsons Ilocos Norte.
