When Things GO WRONG In The PHILIPPINES – BecomingFilipino Fail

Everything went wrong for me in the Philippines! This was a big BecomingFilipino Fail…

At least when it comes to art in Lake Sebu!

Get ready to see a “shining example” of Filipino ingenuity here in South Cotabato…

I won’t be surprised if you have heard of the Tboli “Dreamweavers”. Using an intricate weaving device and their hands… these women create incredible designs known as “T’Nalak”. Many designs are literally based from their dreams. It is another beautiful example of the artistic wonder you can find here in the Philippines! If you didn’t know, a T’Nalak, is actually three “Denoli” (smallers pieces of weave) put together into one larger design. The word T’Nalak literally translates to “make it wide”.

These weavers are famous… as they should be! And it is so wonderful that YOU can come and visit them in their home/weaving centre.

Okay… I was already beyond impressed with the way the weaves are created! But then I asked the Grandson of the late National Living Treasure Boi Lang Dulay:

“What about the guys? Do they weave too?”

That was when he showed me the “smacki”…

AND THAT IS WHERE I HAD A BECOMINGFILIPINO FAIL!

INGENUITY AND RESOURCEFULLNESS!

POWER ON!
