THE FACE OF T’BOLI BEAUTY…The T’boli women of South Cotabato’s Lake Sebu in Philippines’ Mindanao island, stand out for their marked and characteristics penchant for personal adornment, bearing brass jewelry, beads and shells, in their tribal attire.. Among the most well-known of the 18 tribal groups on the island of Mindanao, the T’boli tribe believe that the gods created man and woman to look attractive so that they would be drawn to each other and procreate. Tboli women learn the skills of looking beautiful from an early age. The women weave much of their own cloth, produce many ornaments in brass by the lost-wax technique.
The traditional Bukidnon women of Mindanao in the Philippines,are remarkable for their most colourful dress and the typical combination of colours used by the tribes are red, black and white. Renowned for their elaborate use of embroidery, appliqué and beadwork, their jackets are made of bright material stitched together like patchwork with geometric designs from different bright coloured materials With their hair combed back, held by headbands with tassels of red or yellow yarn and the ends tied in a bun, they wear fan-shaped headdresses made of bamboo sticks or rattan covered with material and decorated with beads, shells and feathers. The Bukidnon Province has seven ethnic tribes namely: Tala-andig, Higaonon, Umayamnon, Manobo, Tigwahanon, Matigsalug and Bukidnon.
When it's freezing cold, even the sandy laterite road will do to set up a wood fire to keep warm. This can only happen in Muang Ngoi, scenic village, north of Luang Prabang, across Ou River (Nong Khiaw). There are no cars in this village because there are no roads that go there.And that makes the road safe enough "for yarning stories" in this remote village which seems to survive from the new found tourism!
