Rare product. Genuine smile.
This was from our Palawan trip February of this year. Included in the Day Tour itinerary was a stop at the Butterfly Eco-Garden and Tribal Village. The thing he was holding was called the ‘bagtik‘. A product of the Pal’awan tribe made out of hardened plant sap, and is a source of livelihood for them. The kid was obviously from school, who decided to join the tour before going home, (or maybe he lives there) and gladly offered a smile when I turned the camera to him. 🙂
