"Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life? And why do you worry about clothes? See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? So do not worry, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?' For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own."

some of the pics i took in the week-long Piña and Fiber Festival and Provincial and Regional Agri-Industrial Fair, April 21-27, 2010, Capitol Grounds, Kalibo, Aklan, in line with the celebration of the province of Aklan's 54th anniversary.
each of the 17 municipalities of Aklan were provided a booth wherein they can display their One Town One Product (OTOP), indigenous crafts, and other merchandise.
Aklan is world-renowned for its piña fiber products and creations.
With its intricate details and meticulous workmanship, this wooden water jug and goblets is really an item of interest.
Tayok-tayok is a kind of reed or grass that grows plentifully in wetlands and marshes of Libacao, Aklan.
tamilok is a worm that is not exactly a worm. although it looks like one, it is actually a mangrove-boring mollusk. they say that it tastes much like oysters. this one is from Bakhawan Eco-Park, Kalibo, Aklan.
a chandelier made of shells.
a Precious Moments doll from Sampaguita Gardens representing the Ati people- an ethnic group and the original settlers in Aklan.
a demo for cooking large tilapia or pla-pla.
a lettuce planted in vermicompost.
the municipality of Numancia recently won the national award for Best OTOP Implementer in the 2010 National One Town One Product Congress because of their vermicomposting projects.
a clay mask from Lezo, the smallest of the 17 towns of Aklan. Lezo is known for its pottery and other clayworks.
a mangrove charcoal briquette from Bakhawan Eco-Park.
they say that this type of fuel burns more effectively and lasts longer, suitable for home and restaurant business use.
the province of Guimaras is famous for producing the sweetest mangoes in the world. their mangoes are reportedly served at the White House and Buckingham Palace.
nothing is wasted. Fish bones from Estancia, Iloilo.
this is served fried to perfect crunchiness and is sure to be rich in calcium.
'bandi'. this peanut brittle with sesame seeds is from the province of Antique.
in my hometown, Coron, Palawan, we also have our own 'bandi' which is made of cashew nuts instead of peanut.
all natural organic wine from Negros Occidental. no chemical preservatives, no artificial flavor, and no alcohol added. made from bignay or currant tree, pineapple, and duhat or black plum or Java plum.
