  1. these flowers are transported by the farmers themselves
    you should be there at like 2 in the morning ta makitam.

  2. We visited a cousin’s friend there on Valentines Day and helped her in selling their flowers. Grabe, the prise could shoot that high. Its like gold with petals. Sobrang mahal and a lot of people buys them no matter how expensive it is. I saw Boy Abunda buying hehehe….

    Happy New Year Bill!

  3. roses, mums, etc… flowers are fascinating. i didn’t know the area has been tiled up already. when we looked for a friend’s stall there almost 4 years ago, i remember the place didn’t look like how it is now. anyway, happy new year again bill. may we all bloom this 2008, hihihi

  4. Hello Bill & everyone, Great improvement in Dangwa. Even the cutflowers, they became hybrid. I am also an avid buyer of flowers. There was a time when Baguio was simpler, and the smell of native roses would linger after the rains. Get well soon!
