Beautiful Third World

Because it can be beautiful too. Really.

18 notes

Lucban, Quezon
For those who don’t know, these colorful leaf-shaped decorations are  called “kiping.” They are made from ground-up rice and are used by the  people of Lucban to decorate their homes during the Pahiyas Festival, a  feast to celebrate and give thanks to their patron saint for their  bountiful harvest. The town becomes really, really colorful during this  day.
PS
You can actually fry the kiping and eat them. hehe.
