  1. These are beautiful images of the orchid Ms. Gita. Some years ago, nurturing orchids is considered an expensive hobby, capricho baga.

    But now, orchids as low as 30 pesos are peddled in front of Quiapo Church.

  2. Ttaveler on Foot, i know. those were the days. ngayon kasi, orchids are everywhere. times have changed.
    but one thing that will definitely NOT change... is whether one has a green thumb or not.
