Pictures of my collection of key-chains from different places given to me and some I bought or had custom made.

My Collection of Key-chains

Key-chains, they are simple inexpensive and very useful. I have had lots of keychains. I just took them for granted. My younger brother started to send me key-chains because i would tease him every time he and his wife would travel. I would tell him "paslubong lang akon bisan key-chain lang", roughly translated : "Get me a souvenir, even if just a key-chain". He would buy me the ones with the names of the places. I was happy when he sent me some.

I would use them for my keys, I have so many keys, especially the duplicates of the rooms in the boarding house, the bedrooms of the house and the canteen. But I noticed he stared to get my very nice ones and some were expensive! I felt bad just using tem and they would get dirty or faded. So I collected them in a bag/pouch so they wont fade or look old.

In this first pictures you could see some were custom made and for give-away. Some still have keys on them, even if I don't use them I just left them on. The one with my name, I put on my bag.

Some From Different Places

These were mostly given by my brother. Whenever they go on vacation especially in Mexico and Las Vegas,he has a time-sharing Condo in Las Vegas, he had my name made into a key-chain. In Mexico Cabo san Lucas and San Martin he got me one too. Also from Florida and the Niagara Falls.

I also collect local places here like the "Cebu" from a nephew who works there and came home to Iloilo. Now I have to look for key-chains with Iloilo and Miagao on it. Hmm??

I said to myself, even if I have never been to these places, at least I have some kind of souvenir. Something I can look at and wish that someday I might be able to visit these places. No harm in dreaming, it's free!

New Additions To The Collection

I am not ashamed to ask friends or relatives who are coming home for visits to get me a key-chain Especially if they ask what I want. Doesn't have to be expensive as long as there is the name of the place on it. My niece got me one from Jordan while she was working there. A friend gave me one from Canada. Another niece came home for vacation from Singapre too and asked what I wanted, I told her anything but to also include a key-chain with the name Singapore! She gave me 2 and one is also useful as a small nail cutter. Some were also as give-away on their marriage

Another nephew gave me the cute little elephant from Thailand. One nephew is travelling to different places and I asked him to get me one from the different places. I am excited for his homecoming.

Key-chains are the best souvenirs you can give out when you go home from vacation. Inexpensive and practical. I would love to receive them as "pasalubongs" (souvenirs). My brother is coming home for vacation this October I hope he has some key-chains for me :)

I plan later this year or early next year, to have a shadow box made with little hooks and display all my key-chains. I will have a glass cover. I plan to make 100 hooks and slowly fill them all. When I have it done I will share it here.
