Location: Barangay Santiago, Palompon Leyte

Length: 2 minutes 36 seconds

File size:  27.8mb

The typical Sari-Sari store sells cigarettes, snacks, sweets, soft drinks, iced water, beer, rum, shampoo, bread, noodles, rice and more. Many have no refrigeration and many are attached to a family home.

 

This particular Sari-Sari store must have refrigeration as they provide Iced Water. In the video you will see my friend Steve Bernard cooling down by tipping the iced water on to his head. You will also see Filipino's playing 8 ball pool and playing cards for money.

Shower

Date Filmed: 2002

File size: 2.3mb

  

Description: There is no water connected to any house in barangay Liberty. You have to fetch water from the nearest spring or have your own tank. In any case it is hard to have a hot water system. My way to overcome this is to fill a bucket with water at the desired temperature then use a camp shower to pump the water out of the bucket and have a shower. The camp shower was previously battery operated but was converted to mains power. You can see the final result in this video.

It is played along the lines of baseball with 4 bases but no bat and ball as they just use slippers (flip flops). The slipper is pitched to the batsman who kicks it with their foot. Then they have to run the bases. There is no park to play in so the game is played on the road. Of course there are traffic interruptions. One interruption you will see is a jeepney/bus so overloaded that many passengers are seated on the roof. At night time, when it is too dark to play, you will see some inventive hand slapping games.
