We’re so used to the Pinoy way of life that it comes as a shock to us when seemingly menial items we use on a daily basis get a makeover by popular brands. We first made a list about it a while back, when the so-called bayongciaga made headlines.
And recently Muji took the lowly tabo and made it somewhat desirable across all demographics by sweetening the product’s copy.
Awesome! Here are more Pinoy things we’d like to see appropriated by known brands, and the suggested copy for each.
