I like the story and the photos you posted yesterday very much. I especially like the black and white photos.

Thanks for sharing this unique cultural tradition from the Philippines. I wouldn't have known that if it was not for this post.

Is this the coconut we use for cooking? Not buko? I miss buko, I love the seed inside, that which we call tumbong! hahaha. 7pesos is not much, hope he gets a living with it.

I bet they're a lot fresher than the coconuts we get here.

turtle-- thank you very much for your rhyming comment. I love it! Haha

tash-- the business is originally for photo photo studio with a side business for selling coconuts. 7 pesos each.=)

the dong-- it could be either of the two, the dong. I didn't really ask because I was in a hurry. oops.

eki-- you're welcome!

kayni-- always happy to provide nostalgic moments and food cravings, kayni =)

mirage2g-- I think its mainly for cooking. My nanay calls that "buwa" nice to learn a new word. hehehe tumbong sounds like a musical instrument to me.

ken-- you get yours in a pack?

Kris said...

Layrayski said...

kris-- no I didn't, I just passed by. I was in a hurry.
