The Omnipresent Waiting Shed

Waiting shed (or ‘waiting shade’ in Bisaya) is an omnipresent small structure used by folks to shield them from weather inconveniences. It is also used as a resting place while waiting for anything — normally while waiting for public transportation. There is no uniformity as each barrio or town has its own design. It is never standardized, but then Philippines would be dull if it is.
