So here is my take to this cultural blog exchange. This is cute, actually, and I like it. So what do I foresee in this - an opportunity to promote our local Philippine products that don't normally get's noticed to the international market.
Perhaps blogger could really tell the world that they make a difference and I hope this will make difference - this cultural exchange through blogs.
So what I am up to - I can exchange products from the versatile coconut, famously and alternatively known as the tree of life; with either, a virgin coconut oil or coco vodka.
Just check around the healtful benefits of virgin coconut oil, some would even claim that it can be used to cure AIDS, that is yet to be widely proven, but I was told by a balding friend that he's growing his denuded head-forest cover with the coco oil. There are lots of other health and beauty benefits of the oil - check and google the web.
As for the coco vodka locally known as lambanog - well there's an art of drinking the vodka especially in Tayabas, Quezon (South of Luzon)and it is such a very polite way to social drinking. Men and women alike love to drink this spirit and they said they never get hang-over no matter how much they drink.Read more article by searching the web - coco vodka or lambanog.
So what to exchange with:
my virgin coconut oil = your virgin olive oil
my coco vodka = any red or white wine
so let us begin the exchange!
