nipa hut



Everytime I see a nipa hut (nipa is a kind of palm tree and its fronds are harvested to be made into roofing material), it makes me a bit nostalgic. Rural folks spend late afternoons in the nipa huts just like this...mainly because its shade is cool and it's where friends meet. After the hard work during the day, rural folks unwind here..alone or friends and neighbors. Here, they play chess, sungka, dama, tong-its and chiki-cha (card game). Or they drink tuba (fermented coconut sap). Or they just sit here, telling stories, listening and laughing at old jokes.

You bring me back to the remotest barrio, we once lived. The nostalgia can be overwhelming for me who have been away for so long a time.

You are a gifted artist. I love the nipa hut for community social gathering. In our days, there even was serenading as "karaoke" was not an IN thing yet. Just the guitara and the singing townsfolk.
