Shopping on the Streets

When the traffic stops (and it stops often), that’s when the street vendors make their business. Newspapers, candies, bottled water, cigarettes, whatever you may need while on your way to wherever. But the vendors also sell things that may just catch your fancy – guyabano, banana-cue, a steering wheel cover, floor mat, basketball, a fishing pole, helicopter toys and even bonsai plants!

Jojo asked out of curiosity how much the plants were, the vendor said P250, then when he saw we weren’t interested, it went down to P100 – “bueno mano lang po!” Well, if you’re on the way to a party and forget to buy a present, you may just find one when you’re stuck in traffic.
