I love going to trade fairs and this time I got the chance to attend one in Lingayen, in the province of Pangasinan. Our town Laoac is one of the participants and my brother and his wife, being employees in the town hall went there with their co-workers last week so I asked if I can go with them. It's a good thing that there was a space for me in the municipal vehicle so off we went. It was noontime when we went so it was awfully hot. Though the Pajero's AC was on, I was sweating a lot. When we arrived in the venue, we went straight to the booth of Laoac. They were selling local products of our town like tupig, bakya, patupat, molasses, fresh milk, spiced vinegar and the best selling sugar cane juice. Customers fall in line to buy the fresh sugar cane juice owned by our town mayor.
We roamed around to see what the other stalls offer. There were various food products, handicrafts, furnitures, plants and what have you. I bought a wooden garlic crusher for Php130, wooden chopping board for Php80, wooden ladle and wooden frying spatula for Php50 each. I also bought a bottle of garlic chips for Php75 and a grafted American lemon plant for Php130 and it has already flowers. Sorry I forgot to take photos of these 3 items.
