Bahay kubo or nipa hut, built using wood, bamboo, and other native materials. It just saddens me that this truly pinoy architecture is fading away. I seldom see bahay kubo , even in rural areas.
I guess it is safe to say that most filipinos knows this song, taught to us at a very young age. Come on sing with me now. "Bahay kubo, kahit munti. Ang halaman doon ay sari-sari. Singkamas at talong. Sigarilyas at mani. Sitaw, bataw, patani. Kundol, patola, upo't kalabasa at saka meron pang Labanos, mustasa. Sibuyas, kamatis. Bawang at luya. Sa paligid ligid ay puno ng linga."
