He he!

Is this photo right way up, now? (It's hard to tell!!)

Tell me more about "tapayan" - what are they used for?

By the way... If you look closely at the earthenware pot, you can see very light shades of pink, blue, green, orange, purple and violet...

(Wala lang... it's just that I have observed that it is very important to capture all the different colors, tints and shades that you see in an object, if you want to really capture its realism when you try to paint the thing!)

well, in Bulacan, a tapayan is used as a storage of vinegar..

you know, SUKANG PAOMBONG :)

but sometimes, its used as an err-- water container?

:D

you know, noon :)

err-- I don't know how to tell you this in english but here it goes.

"sa mga katutubo, ginagamit syang lalagyan nung taboo nila, they keep the meat until uuod-in siya at pag naagnas na yung karne, niluluto nila.. eww noh? :) "

"sa ibang katutubo, sa tapayan nila inihihimlay or inilalagak yung mga corpse ng relatives nila"

^__^

maybe next week, I'll post a photo of another angle of a tapayan..

:)

Translates (very roughly!) as:

"You know, at one time they used to use tapayan as vessels for storing rotten meat...

They would keep the meat in there until it was completely full of maggots - and then they would cook it!"

...(A bit like Stilton cheese, I guess? ...The maggots make it soft and they add to the flavor!!!!!!!!!!!!!) :bad::nea:

And:

"In other ("cases?") they used to use tapayan as a storage for the corpses of their relatives!" :shok:

...(Presumably, this was only an interim measure - until a proper burial could take place????

In that case, what happened to the tapayan after it had been used for such a purpose?

I hope they didn't re-use it for that rotten meat thing???) :cray::unsure:

they won't cook the meat while it's full of maggots, they wait until it's all driedn up.

it is the final resting place of the corpses..

I don't remember what tribe it is but I'm dead sure that it's not reusable :)

LOL

Well... I'm glad to know that the tapayan is NOT reusable once it has been used to store a corpse.

That IS good to know! :)

But, I have to say, I like fresh maggots the best... Not the dried up ones?

The fresh ones are more juicy and tender!

Just like Tender Juicy Hot Dogs!!!!! :rofl::lol:

Joking aside...

I used to really love Tender Juicy Hot Dogs. I mean, AS IN!!

...until someone told me that hot dogs in the Philippines are made with worm protein??

Well, I did read the packet and nowhere does it mention worm meat as an ingredient of Tender Juicy Hot Dogs...

But NO WAY! I just can't eat the things anymore.

I still buy them. I even cook them; sure... I even like to appreciate that wonderful aroma that they have...

But then I give them ALL to my dog.

She seems to like them, though!!!! :P

eww.. I don't like maggots...

just by seeing them makes me feel so uncomfortable..

so eww..

yeah, TJ hotdogs are the best..

I don't care if they're from worm meat as long as they won't kill me in a split second :)

LOL
