Production of Trash
Traveling to somewhere is somewhat nerve wracking especially if you do not know the place that your going. Fortunately, my travel is not as nerve wracking as it seems. As I passed to Los Baños, Laguna. I saw a store which seems to create funitures out of long strips of paper. Closely inspecting it, it was not a paper but a water hyacinth flattened to be come thin strips. I was amazed on how the people there do it. I watched the workers create some baskets, place mat, vases, containers and even chairs! this ingenuity was created from trash to cash! People working there were very patient in their work extreme patience is needed in order to create something magnificent like that.
I amazed on the fact that from the pest that infesting the bays here in the Philippines, beautiful and useful things could be created by these creative craftsmen.
