Chandeliers of Capiz Shells

Dr Abe V Rotor
 


Chandeliers of capiz above my head, 
     I'm under the sea it seems;
among mermaids and corals for bed,
    bathe in the glow of moonbeams.~   
Chandeliers made of capiz shells. Top, Mary Grace Restaurant at SM Fairview mall where a group reunion of St Paul College Ilocos Sur took place recently. The Province of Capiz was named after the  highly prized Placuma placenta oyster which is worldwide famous for the classic and elegant crafts made from it such as lampshades, window panes of houses of colonial design, and Christmas lanterns (parol). ~
