I saw a couple of these in the garden of my guesthouse. Turns out that my host would buy some from the market to let them complete their metamorphosis. She feared that one day they will all be gone.

Community Weighing Scale 

Timbangan ng Bayan

Providing common weighing scales (Timbangan ng Bayan) inside public markets is an example of a Philippine government public service. Now folks have a way to double check the weight of the produce.
Sort of a vendor rip-off deterrence tool.

Rice Stall

The number on the sign denote the price of rice per kilo in Philippine peso. Rice in open sacks on the first row are branded and their signs carry the brand name. Unbranded rice on the second and third rows have signs that tell the variety and quality factor like malambot (tender) and mabango (aromatic).
