Let's play a little game, shall we? And this game is called, "THE UNBEARABLE LIGHTNESS OF BEING BAKYA." Send me your name and email address along with a photo, image, or a really graphic description/drawing of what you think is the most Bakya thing* that you have ever seen in the Philippines and you might just win a pair of bakyas from HAPPY FEET!!  

Check out their site.  Their updated collection of Bakyas rock.  So cool.  So Filipino.  So Happy Feet.
Neneng never had it so good.

Thank you so much Marinella for this.  And thanks Stevechasmar for the picture.

Winners will be announced on September 1, 2008

*Bakya - Wooden clogs that were once the most commonly used footwear in the Philippines before the introduction of rubber sandals.
