Drying Goods on the Road

Karagumoy hats

In the probinsya, public roads are not only for vehicles and pedestrians but as readily available space for sun drying food and non-food stuff. More frequently observed is grain drying, especially rice grains, and sometimes corn. Then there’s also coconut drying (copra). But it’s only in Bicol region where I saw gabi leaves drying and karagumoy hats drying.

Sun Drying Keropok

Like a giant crabstick and slices of it will be sun dried

This particular eating place, in one of the water villages of Kampong Ayer, makes its own keropok. I asked the all-around lady helper if it was made from udang (shrimp), but she answered crab. So I guess it’s ketam (crab), and it tasted like one.

This keropok was good that I had about 6 packs of cooked ones in the course of several times I went there for a meal.
