PostCard Series| Pili Nuts of Bicol




ON TRAVEL| Don’t be confused. I am not in any part of Uragon Provinces or I should say-I have never been to Bicol Region. When we say Bicol we usually associate “Sili” and “Pili”. These photographs of Bicol’s famed product were taken in Alabang (Muntinlupa City). While our neighbor is busy sun –drying the pili nuts she got from her hometown in Bicol, I’m quite busy taking photographsJ. I know Bicol Region has a lot to offer- from food to places of interests/adventures plus its own unique cultures and traditions. That’s why I am now listing this Northeast part of the country as No. 1 in my list of  plan SIDETRIPs for 2013.

  3. I've tasted pili nuts but mostly when it's already a pili nut brittle which is a common pasalubong from Bicol. The postcard series looks like an interesting concept.
