The participants experienced the D-I-Y stenciled throw pillow wherein they stenciled the famed festival tattoo markings on a pillow case included in the kit, as part of their online activity.

The Pintados-Kasadyaan of Leyte seeks to remind us how creative Filipinos are when it comes to singing, dancing, and even body art. One participant said, “The Pintados-Kasadyaan festival was such an inspiration.”

The Philippine Consulate General in Melbourne was again assisted by Ms. Rosa Almencion, also known as Mommy YouTuber, in airing and sharing the event with her growing audience.
