Scene in Seoul: Native crafts

What does this photo remind you of?

We were driving towards Jongro2-ga when I spotted this truck carrying native crafts. I suddenly remembered those days when I was just a little girl in Angeles City. I would be waiting for the water buffalo pulling a cart filled with native crafts in the heat of the summer. Then I would ask my mother to buy me a set of “palayok” or miniature clay pots that my friends and I would use when playing “luto-lutuan”. In our palayok, we would cook rice and mung beans under a tall guava tree. After our “lunch”, it was time to climb up the tree and pick some guavas. Those were the days when you didn’t have to worry about getting dirty. When you didn’t have to think about how you look nor wonder where to get adipex without prescription.

A truck vendor in Seoul is a common sight. Some of them have annoying loudspeakers, but a lot of times you can get a good deal from them like when buying fruits. Last winter, I bought a box of tangerines from a truck vendor for less than 10,000 won. Tangerines in Korea are delish especially during the winter season.

    Oo nakakamiss nga ‘yon, minsan natuwa nga ako nang may makita ako sa main road ng may kalabaw na sakay yung mga native products sa atin sa Angeles City..pero madalang na lang sila..At yung mga laro natin noon na hindi masyado naaaplay ng mga bata ngayon..gaya ng luto-lutuan, bahay bahayan,..halos mga role playing noon 🙂 At times we can’t help but compare how easy and simple our lives have been in the past as compared to now..
