Spinning turned out to be much harder than I thought! The Mangyans at the Hibla Pavilion during the ManilaFame 2012 were so kind to indulge in my desire to try out hand spinning. I've tried weaving through a back strap loom with the T'bolis and I likened it to dancing : there was a rhythm to it. This time around, with hand spinning cotton, I felt like I was doing a sport : my reflexes were put to a test! Failing miserably at times, I realize chewing on NgaNga might have done the trick!
