A Filipino product you can support and not feel bad about

By Degenerate

“Support Filipino products.”

It doesn’t matter where you grew up, I’m sure you’ve heard the phrase before. In elementary, in high school, in college. You hear people say it on TV. You’ve read about it in Sibika at Kultura books, magazines, newspapers (or if you’re a very young kid, you’ve probably read it somewhere on the internet).

The problem is I often find myself in a Catch-22 kind of situation when it comes to supporting Filipino products. I wonder how many of you feel the same. On one hand, you feel Pinoy Pride, you feel the need to support our kababayans and our economy by buying Filipino products. On the other hand, you almost immediately feel buyer’s remorse the moment you purchase a Filipino product because you feel it’s corny, or baduy, or of inferior quality.

Don’t get me wrong, we have plenty of Filipino products that are world-class, and most of them have stood the test of time and are going stronger by the day. Team Manila is one of those products.

Team Manila has been around for awhile, and it’s gaining more and more momentum because of its quality, its Pinoy taste. Because it’s inspired by our own Filipino culture. Because it’s not baduy, because people from all walks of life can rock it and not look odd. Team Manila makes me prouder to be a Filipino.

Visit or go to a Team Manila store near you and see for yourself. I’m not certain about a lot of things, but I’m sure if Dr. Jose Rizal were still alive, he’d approve.

Team Manila makes it easier for us to support Filipino products.
