Oxfam : Women's Month | Indigenous Women

A short film I've worked with Oxfam Asia / Philippines about Asian indigenous women and their economic rights.

What fascinates me is that these tribes remain pure, humble and intact despite the strong colonization of the West for centuries and thus the commercial abuse and exploitation of the modern world.

I have enjoyed studying and designing each minorities and knowing only a morceau of their lifestyle and history.  So much to learn, so little time!

The Three Deities

To celebrate the Women's Month, here are the three deities representing the basic Filipino / South East Asian essentials for healing, nurture and relaxation to the human body. These were used to be design studies for a spa salon that eventually got disapproved.

Coconut Oil represents nurture.

Banana Leaf represents healing.

Sampaguita Flower for relaxation.

Happy Women's Month!

Arabic Perfume

I went to Dubai last year and bought myself a perfume.
This is how I think it smells like.


Yaya / Nana

Yayas create a special bond with children whose parents are away eight hours daily, that special bond blurs the line of discrimination and social classes. Thus they have become a second parent to some children including me.

 Should there be an International Nanny Day that is officially declared?

A late homage to the documentary film, "Sunday Beauty Queen".

Have a thoughtful day.
