We have been going ukay- ukay on eachother’s wardrobes lately!

Lilo on the otherhand, is wearing reusable diapers from the 90’s. They used to be mine! Glad nanay kept a bunch of my old baby clothes to pass on to my kids. Also glad-er that they are still in style! Admittedly, as eco- conscious as I have been, supporting fast fashion, to me, was always the hardest to let go of. So that little activity of ours was such a wonderful thing for us to try! Remember that it’s always better to contribute even something so little than doing nothing at all. One can be doing their best yet still not succeed in doing it completely, AND THAT’S OK.🌸

“Sa dami ng gusto kong sabihin, hindi ko alam kung ano ang uunahin ko,” she started.

“Sa dami ng nararamdaman ko ngayon, hindi ko alam kung paano isisigaw.

“Pero ang alam ko lang, ito ‘yung panahon para hindi tayo manahimik. Ito ‘yung panahon na hindi tayo dapat magwatak-watak. Ipakita natin kung ano ang relevance ng industriya na ‘to, na hindi lang tayo basta entertainment,” she said.

“Nakikiusap po ako: now is the time. Gamitin natin ‘yung boses natin sa tama. Naniniwala rin ako na ang isang kumpanya na may magandang hangarin para makatulong sa ating mga kababayan, lalo na sa gitna ng isang pandemya, ay kailangan na kailangan natin

“Kailangan po natin ng isa’t-isa, kailangan po natin magkaisa, dahil hindi lang po ito laban ng [isang] kumpanya. Buhay po ng mga tao ang nakasalalay dito — mga tao na may binabayaran, hinuhulugan, may pinapagamot, pinag-aaral, binubuhay na pamilya.” Angel continued.
