Public Soap Bar

That blue soap bar on a stick that rotates when you use it for easy application is Korea’s unconventional idea of public soap. You’ll get used to it.

Philippine Paper Cash Tickets

Cash tickets for the entrance fee of Bulusan National Park, Sorsogon

I forgot where I got this. I guess from the NPC Nature's Park in Iligan City

Cash tickets for the entrance fee of Cotta Fort in Ozamiz. The fee is 5 pesos so the two-peso ticket was halved. Is that allowed?

Pagulong

image

Pagulong is an outdoor play where you roll a piece of tyre using a stick from point A to point B as fast as you can while maintaining its upright position.¬†Usually it’s a race among kids and Filipino kids used to play this a lot. Perhaps it’s still true in rural areas though I haven’t seen it nowadays in the barrio.
