Abaniko Fan




         Abaniko refers to a certain handy fan originated in the Philippines. During the Spanish era, this abaniko fans usually use and paired with baro't saya as the lady's attire. In this modern times, the use of abaniko fans in the Philippines remains and to some countries. As being a Filipino, I also treasure this abaniko fan as part of our national heritage. Sometimes, I use this abaniko fan during severe sunny season and naturally ease-up from the sun's heat.

Out From Kaffir Lime Tree



      

        Way back before, we planted lots of citrus "Hystrix" or known as kaffir lime in our vacant lot. For several years, we already tasted its fruit thru mixing its juice with our soy sauce especially when we eat chicken, fish or beef. Indeed, this kaffir lime serve as a good appetizer to us. As of now, only few kaffir lime trees left in our backyard since we cut it down and use the vacant lot. This container is just one of the result of the kaffir lime trees that been cut down. We turn those trees into something useable that we keep even for a lifetime....Whola! We just choose the right design in making out this container along with the others....

Smaller Version Of Large Woven Tray (Bilao or Nigo)



    Traditionally, this large woven tray smaller version or widely known as "Bilao" or "Nigo" that I got here in my home mainly use in separating rice hull from the grains before placing into the rice container. Since, some of the rice "husked" are not milled well. Most Asian countries use this stuff in cleaning over their rice. Having this smaller version of "Bilao" or "Nigo" serve as a reminder of how my fellow countrymen and even those from the Asian countries use this handicraft stuff in cleaning over their rice that still been preserve way back from earlier century and until now.

Traditional Oil Lamps

     


    
     

         I'm glad that we got some historical oil lamps in our home that still well-preserved like the older times. Looking up these traditional oil lamps that we got somehow gave life to the histories that passes through especially during the biblical times with the glimpse on how they live their life before modern lights come along. These oil lamps became their main source of light during the night. Anyways, it's worthwhile of keeping this kind of historical heritage.
