"Buko Kayo Dyan!"
Gone snorkeling and island hopping around the island, at one snorkeling spot an enterprising local islander paddling in the water on top an old surfboard loaded with more than a dozen young coconuts (locally known as "buko") was making a killing. Tired and a little bit exhausted diving and swimming into the water, snorkelers couldnt help but buy from this i-know-what-you-need-most entrepreneur the young coconuts for that needed recharge.
We paid P100 for 3 pieces - not bad.
Trivia: Being a tropical archipelago, Philippines is the 2nd largest producer of coconut and its products in the whole world.
Sancastle Sculpture Artists
Six feet high sandcastles are built by locals by the White Beach on sunny days. The intricate designs are painstakingly curved and kept intact by continuously spraying water into it otherwise they easily crumble to the drying heat of the sun.
At night, lamps within the sandcastles are lighted giving that warm glow exposing the contours of the work. Daytime or nightime, tourists would find it irresistible to have a picture-op with the sandcastles at the background. A few peso dropped in a nearby donation box would make everybody happy.
