Beside this pier the shore is dotted with boats and the shoreline with vendors. I asked the driver where I could buy capiz frames, lamps, etc. I didn’t know how to explain what capiz was to him so I just said “shells.” He brought us here.
I left with only 2 items (see below) but I am very happy with my finds. They are not useless souvenir trinkets, and I actually have use for them. I regret not buying some lovely polished shells that would’ve made elegant and very classy soap dishes for guest bathrooms. Those would have been great as presents to our friends for Christmas. They were selling it by the kilo too, so compared to Jakarta it was dirt cheap. *face slap* Silly me!
