Quaint Talipapa - People's Mall

Dr Abe V Rotor

Tahong and talaba
Shrimps and crabs
Shellfish and lobster
Arusip (Caulerpa)

It's people's market, a spontaneous institution;
Everywhere, anywhere it rises in communion
With all walks of life converging into a ganglion,
Serving felt needs, the yardstick of satisfaction;
Name it: seaweeds, hito, giant grouper, tahong,
Variety for all culinary, or just a meal's portion;
Buffer against force majeure and economic recession;
By any measure, sans dollar-peso conversion,
Life goes on and on, so with the whole nation.~
