Top 8 Must Collect Items at the Southeast Asian Games 2015 in Singapore

Manila, Philippines

Collectors around the Southeast Asian region and the world looking for a regional games are here for a treat of their lives. This biennial sporting festival which unites 11 countries in Southeast Asia . Memorabilia collectors are looking for official merchandises  which can increase their prices in the near future or something that will bring nostalgia and fond memories of hosting an event. Singapore last hosted the event in 1993 or 22 years ago .

8. SEA GamesT-shirt – Selling Price SGD$ 19.90 ( around Php 658 pesos) This is probably the most practical commemorative souvenir item .  Supporters can wear them during the duration of the the 28th SEA Games and a wise marketing strategy , people wearing the item are like free advertisement for the event and a regional pride. Even non- ASEAN member countries are buying this stuff and an ideal souvenir from Singapore. It comes in blue, red and black colors. It is 60% Jersey Cotton and 40% Polyester . 7. SEA Games Countries Flag with Nila – SG $ 7.90 each or SGD $ 86.90 for 11 countries ( around  Php 261.20 pesos each or Php 2,873.12 for 11 piece set )

A collector had an option of collecting a piece or a set of 11 countries.

6. Tote Bags and Bags SG $ 7.90 and $49. 90 ( Around Php 261.00 and Php 1,649.15 pesos ) Another practical and useful buy at the SEA Games are the Tote Bags ( made from canvass)  and Luggage Bag types. It suits all ages and can be useful even after the games.

  5. Nila Plush Toy- SGD $29.90  ( Around Php 988.00 pesos)

They are cute and cuddly. Nila is the official symbol of Singapore and the 28th SEA Games . I have several collector friends from Singapore and local plush toy collectors told me that it was one of the  hottest selling items . 4.) Charms Collection – SG $ 6.90 and SG $ 8.90 ( Around Php 228 pesos and Php 295 pesos) These items are quite easy to carry , have mass appeal especially on teenagers and young adults . 3.) Ballers / Gel Bracelets – SG $ 3.90 each or $42.90 for 11 piece set ( Php 128.88 pesos each or Php 1,649.11 pesos) This brings a nationalistic pride when you wear this kind of arm band, This appeals among  the teenagers and young professionals. BUT one must bear in mind that once it have been worn and in contact with greasy and sweaty hands, Its collecting value will surely goes down . Merchandise wise, There might be tens of thousands or hundreds of thousand of these might have been produce .  Plastic tends to get brittle with age . 2. Commemorative Pins- Selling Price 50 pins set –  SG $399.90 ( Around Php 13,221.65 pesos ) The 50 pins include designs of Nila playing each of the 36 SEA Games sports and posing against the participating countries’ flags. This is the perfect gift or item for collectors. The limited edition  set was quite popular amongst customers at the launch of the 28th SEA Games Merchandise last  November 2014 .  Just a word of caution, The price of these commemorative pins had greatly fluctuated over the years and some  Olympic and World Cup commemorative pins had greatly suffered losses at several local auction in the Philippines. I have seen a 1988 , 1992 and 1996 Olympic pins in frames and in good condition are just being sold at just a fraction of the SEA Games pins.  Maybe there are more pin collectors in other parts of ASEAN region but not really in the Philippines. 1.) SEA Games Commemorative Stamp and Cover ( Issued by Singapore Post Office ) SG $3. 90 ( Around Php 128.90 pesos ) The value of these stamps are a big marketing boost to these games, They are quite CHEAP . There are a lot of people not only in the ASEAN region which collect stamps but particularly collect sports on stamp theme .  There are 4 stamps to complete the set and not bulky to buy, There is also a First Day Cover for a few additional dollars.  Slogan Collectors around the world will also be able to collect ” We Love Sport ” postmark this coming June to commemorate the hosting of the event.  The stamps will be release to the public on June 5, 2015 date of the opening.

3rd Philippine International Flora and Fauna Green Living Expo 2010

The organizers  would like to welcome you to the 3rd Philippine International Flora and Fauna Green Living Expo (PIFGEX 3) with the theme “Gifts of Nature” to be held on July 22-25, 2010 at the World Trade Center, Pasay City.

PIFGEX 2010 poster

We endeavor to bring together and educate people about the Philippine’s natural beauty, its rich yet fragile biodiversity, its endearing culture and also, its unique products.

PIFGEX is the first event that has brought together both government and private industry. It is one of the major projects that RPN Flora and Fauna Inc. organizes annually.

year’s event gave an opportunity for companies, government and private groups to exhibit their products and ideas to the greater public and to special targeted groups. In past shows we have offered exhibitors a chance to talk and make presentations about their products, ideas or services. We also have special interest areas set aside such as live animal displays and provide some exhibitors a display area in the front of the venue as a secondary showcase area. This has been a very successful format allowing exhibitors to introduce new and current products in the market place. Our media partners like Manila Bulletin, Philippine Daily Star, Philippine Daily Inquirer, Business Mirror and Business World has also extended their help and support by way of reaching our intended audience.

The exposition will also be attended by representative exhibitors from different regions of the Philippines. The participation and great contributions of these regions, through the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), helps to accentuate the issue of environmental awareness, as well as share visuals and informations about their place and their industries.

It is  a collaboration of major and developing companies, NGO’s and the government sector to elevate public awareness about what we have to offer, and how our companies and groups are doing their part in the urgent call to revive our land and our planet and in caring for our country’s resources. Together we can make this a crusade and our personal commitment to our country and the environment. Recent calamities have shown we need to take a more proactive role in environmental protection wherein each individual can play their part. Education is an important part of this process and PIFGEX is the only trade show that addresses this important concern.

RPN Flora and Fauna Inc. will continue to improve and innovate in future shows giving exhibitors a chance to discuss and introduce new products and ideas that could contribute to the greening of our country, and reduce industrial and consumer wastes.

Proceeds from the event will be used to fund all expeditions that RPN Flora and Fauna Inc. has been organizing for the research, survey, documentation and eventually, the creation of books that will showcase the flora and fauna of the Philippines from the Batanes group of islands up to the island of Tawi-Tawi.  Let us all become a part of this urgent and worthwhile project that is of great help in upbringing further interest to study and preserve our wildlife and our country as a whole.
