candles in the storm on a palabok night

It's been raining, and raining hard, the past few days. I thought it was just the rainy season coming around again. But it turned out that there is a tropical depression named Frank that has just intensified into storm status. And storm signal number one has been declared in several provinces in the Visayas.

Yet in spite of the rain and the storm, the crafts team met today to make more decorative candles. Production was rather slow today as some of our raw materials (the balloons) were not of the best kind and they had a propensity to burst when dipped in the warm melted wax. So we weren't able to make a lot of candles. But we still had a lot of fun. And food!


Pancit palabok




Fresh papaya chunks

These tasted really good. Nutritious, too. Yum!
