I made a choice before not to put any pictures of my son anywhere on the web for some personal reason. But sometimes photo albums are hard to bring when travelling so I might as well just upload it and talk about it. Maybe someday DK will know a part of him that he was not aware before.

He was born November 4, 2010. Year of the tiger...

The moment I started this blog he is 2 1/2..

The New Breed of Warrior


once upon a time this was what the warrior wear... the head gear is what makes you different from the other side... I am really happy that they are now garments for photo's now a days and a lot of locals are earning something from it.


this photos were taken from the park and the garments we rent it from someone at the park. the price is a bit pricey 10php/shot but the memory is long lasting it's not every time they are going to wear something like this anyway.


I actually went to the extent of thinking to make dk a costume out of this BUT when I went to the market to attempt to buy the cloth to use I was shocked by the price, I know that it might cost me more than the normal fabric but boy oh boy I did not expect it to be more than what I expect.  One piece (one yard in length and 1/2 yard by with) will cost me 1800php (/40 in usd) I asked why its so pricey they told me that they are hand woven and they are the real deal. Well I really hope they are and if they are I understand the price. My grandmother use to wave this and it can take him 3 days to make one piece and that depends on the pattern. 

bottom line is that dk have to be contented with something rented for now :) it will cost me around 100usd just to make him a complete set. I might as well better go home to ask some local who are still making this to earn a living, at least i know that it's real and I can get a discount.

  1. Your son is such a cutie. I think this photo will be something he will cherish and the story behind it is great. I can see understand that the fabric would cost so much, but it would be hard to pay that price. I look forward to seeing more photos!

  10. I would be afraid to make something from material that is so expensive because the money would be wasted if you make a mistake! I love this little warrior outfit though. Glad you were able to find one to rent.
