It is getting warmer here in Italy and I can therefore start wearing the typical Barong Tagalog when I go to Filipino gatherings (namely every week).
My neighbours look at me kind of weird but ako ay Pilipino so they have to get their heads around the fact that this is my official summer attire.
I think Filipinos are geniuses because they have come up with this great idea of a formal dress that doesn’t need a jacket and a necktie.
I think they should start producing “winter” barongs for OFW who live in cold countries!
I actually have many barongs but I can’t use most of them anymore because I have lost tons of weight.
I think I will open a stall in Divisoria (a market in Manila) and sell them….or maybe start a business to manufacture winter barongs….
