Back in the days when school classrooms are of hardwood floors, every student got to polish the floor with these coconut husks called lampaso in Cebuano and Tagalog or butso in Waray. Schedules of the sweepers (that's the official name all right) are rotated so a student gets to spend countless sweat and muscle power and lose pounds in the process. The action is very manual: 1. Sweep the wooden floor first. If hard grime persists, wipe with wet towel and this is important, allow the water to dry (wet floor will be extremely difficult to polish) 2. (optional) Wax the floor, if you can afford it. 3. Work BAREFOOT. Starting at one corner, position your foot on (smaller) top of the husk. Then polish ALONG THE WOOD's GRAIN, using your weight as leverage. Also important, your free foot must be in the unpolished area to prevent your foot tracks from spoiling your work. 4. For balance, swing your arms in coordination with your legs. Work your way until you cover the entire floor. 5. Then, sweep the dirt that comes off the polish. If you're skillful, you may carry a broom with you. Heck, I know of some people who drag a rag with their other free foot for movement economy. Now, that was real elbow, or rather knee grease. Polishing with coconut husk is a vanishing practice. But I bet you they still are common in the public schools outside of the big cities of the country. Anybody interested on why I named this butso should refer to the etymological discussion in photo taken in an open market of Minglanilla town, Cebu, the Philippines more pics and journeys in colloidfarl.blogspot.com/

Minglanilla Church, Cebu

Minglanilla Church, Cebu
Made by Farl
The Church of the Immaculate Heart of Mary (or the Most Pure Heart of Mary) was built from 1880 to 1886. The church is a Gothic confection- the flame-like arches, painted domes of the bell towers and spires which blend with the semi-circular arched portals. The geometric forms and the trefoil arch suggest possible Muslim influence. One of the best-known crowd-drawing Christian Lenten rites in Central Visayas is the annual Easter Sunday pageant called Sugat (Cebuano for encounter), which reenacts the meeting between the risen Christ and His grieving mother. It features children as angels with wings sparkling with lights, slowly sliding down invisible wires from a pulley system onto the church entrance and altar. The new paint job was finished before the town fiesta on Augut 21. Minglanilla, Cebu, the Philippines, August 12, 2005 more pics and journeys in colloidfarl.blogspot.com/

Happy fiesta!!!

Happy fiesta!!!
Made by Farl
Today, Aug 20, is the bisperas of the town fiesta. This was how the townsfolks transformed their 19thc gothic church into their version of an amusement park. A bit over the top I think although the colors somehow complement the arches, the domes, belfries, spires and flying buttresses. This photo of The Church of the Immaculate Heart of Mary (or the Most Pure Heart of Mary), Minglanilla, Cebu, the Philippines was taken in August 14, 2005. more pics and journeys in colloidfarl.blogspot.com/
