I went to the new Century Mall near Avenue and there was a Toy Kingdom branch there. Upon entering, I thought there was something happening near the entrance since a lot of people were “huddling” over something. I tried to look over the shoulders of these people and I saw that they were going crazy over the kits and set of loom bands.

It’s amazing how something can spread so wildly here in the Philippines! For those who know me and read my blog, I am not one to go crazy over something crafty (since I like skill in that department — I admit!), but that fad has gotten me to create these…

Hey, please don’t judge! I know I’m one to say not to get so wrapped up on fads, but I just wanted to try it and I have to admit, it was fun! I stopped though after making around 10 bracelets (most of them were fishtails). I think these two were the complicated ones that I made (complicated by my standards).

I also overheard people at the bank once (I think one was a messenger of a company collecting checks) talk about loom bracelets! Wow! One was asking the other how to make one. Ang galing lang talaga! I’m speechless! Alot of people still want to learn how to make these bracelets.

So for those who want to learn, check this out!
