Repurposed Baby Stroller 

Seen at Quirino Grandstand were several charcoal-grilled dried pusit (squid) ambulant ‘oldish’ female vendors using tiny lightweight table-like stand with an aluminum tray to hold live charcoals. However a couple of vendors have this idea of repurposing a discarded baby stroller in order to transform their pusit stand to a rolling one.

Monobloc Trikes

At Burham Park you can see those tiny three-wheeled pedal vehicles. Kids rent them to playfully go around a short distance path of about 200 meters (I think) for an hour. Some have fancy looking roofs, some have “A” roofs, and some have no roofs. Those single seater ones are the most common but I have also seen several tandem ones. What truly caught my attention is the practical design of its seating. A Monobloc chair is removable, replaceable, readily available, and easy to clean.
