Human Nature Back at the Attic

Good news! As a holiday gift, Purple Cow will be bringing back Human Nature products at the Attic this week.

For the past months (or year) I wasn’t able to focus on Human Nature because of my trips. This time I’m determined to promote this product not for profit purposes, but mainly for the social aspect of it. If some of you are not yet aware, Human Nature is pro-poor. They have projects for the less fortunate, at the same time, they provide livelihood for the people. Of course the more sales and demand for the products, the more they can provide jobs for people, especially for the farmers and those who need them the most. Now don’t we want that?You get to buy a quality product that is kind to you and the environment, at the same time you’re helping others.  We are helping Filipinos improve their lives.

The Second Brent Bazaar Experience

This is a days-late post about the Brent Bazaar held last November 22. It was so far the most successful one I’ve experienced. All those hardwork and puyat paid off. Thank God.

Last October, I was scheduled to come up here in Baguio and would be staying for at least a month. And I was hoping there would be a bazaar around to maximize my  stay. Luckily, Cathy, a HS batchmate informed me that Brent would be holding one and it coincided with my schedule. The moment I got the information from the school admin, I applied and settled payment immediately while I was in still in Quezon City. I had a month to prepare and I knew I had enough time. I wanted to avoid what I did with my previous bazaar experiences, preparing just days before the event. I think it left my booth looking half-baked. I didn’t want that to happen this time.

Halu from Indonesia! Apakabar?

Yes, I’m right here in Bogor, Indonesia as I am visiting my sister and her family. A little break from Purple Cow’s Attic eh?.

My mind was set to just playing with my youngest nephew and bonding with the family. I made a quick research prior to flying here and nothing much is written about Bogor . It’s not really a tourist spot like Bali.

I knew there would be a lot of rain because it’s tagged as the “Rain City”. I looked forward to greeneries, polluted-free environment, site seeing and food tripping. And shopping? Hmmm, parang wala ako aasahan. Though my sister told me before there are outlet shops here.   But I didn’t keep my hopes up high and just conditioned my mind that there will be no finds for Attic on this trip. No business-related matters muna!

So I guess I spoke to soon. Bogor caught me off guard.

Personal Purchases from Hong Kong

After two freezing weeks in Hong Kong, I’m back here in QC  again.  I wasn’t prepared for the cold weather in Hong Kong, and by cold I mean as low as 5 degrees! Brrrr. Most of the time I can’t feel my toes and fingers haha. And I found myself staying indoors during the first day of my HK trip.  I actually wanted to stay indoors forever. Nevertheless, I didn’t let the weather stop me from my personal shopping duties.  It was quite tiring but again and again, I enjoyed doing it. The rush kept my mind away from the cold.

This February batch had the most footwear requests (winter season= boots. Go figure.). I kinda got worried with the weight of my luggage. But it’s cool. I managed to squeeze everything within the limit.

So as soon as I finished personal shopping, I rewarded myself. The sale all around got me going cray-cray!And there were a lot of cool stuff being sold. Wish I had more cash with me then. Will share photos of interesting items I saw in HK later in a separate post.

Anyway, I just like to share what I purchased. Continue reading
