Kamaru Statement shirts

As you can see in my photo, I am wearing a red shirt with a statement POTA APATE DA KA KNG NYAMAN, which actually means "I might kill you in pleasure," in a more boastful and naughty tone.

I actually sell Kapampangan statement shirts worth Php200. Proceeds go to the activities of KAMARU, the Kapampangan youth organization I am still forming in UP Diliman. So far, ever since January, with minimal publicity, I have been able to sell seven already, each shirt with a unique statement. I would say they're a hit -- even our maids at home made orders!

Another purpose of these statement shirts is to make people read Kapampangan. It won't really save the language in a major scale, but I believe it exudes a certain aura of modernity that can make Kapampangan teenagers think that their language is not just for antique times.

Carlo Pamintuan, a Kapampangan from the Ateneo De Manila University, ordered two just this month. They had an indie fashion show in their school. He included KAMARU's shirts in their lineup. Check out.

The green shirt I sold to Carlo (photo above) has this statement which goes O BA'T PIN KAYA ASNA KUNG KASANTING (Why oh why am I so gorgeous?). At the back of these shirts is the Kalalangan Kamaru parul logo. Don't be misled by this next photograph; Carlo had the shirt worn with the back design shown in front just for a change.

If you wish to order, do email me:

Colors come in either: pink, lime green, black, red orange (the color of the shirt I'm wearing), sky blue, greenish blue, and orange. Available sizes are small, medium, large, and extra large. There is extra charge if you wish them delivered (through LBC), but if I can manage to deliver them myself, I'll do it free of charge.

Regarding the statements written, I can either surprise you or you may request a specific statement, as long as it goes well with what the shirts are collectively trying to express. Kamaru logo at the back is unchangeable.

As said, profit will go to KAMARU's funds. Thank you very much! Luid ya ing amanung Kapampangan!
