The final piga (squeezing water out) before hanging, by the road in Cebu.
It's a common element of Filipino jokes: the henpecked husband doing laundry, after being threatened by his wife, who is wielding a frying pan and ready to whack him on the head.
On the other hand, I see men washing clothes in public all over the country-- and they never look miserable. They are often talking to neighbors or other people hanging out in front of their houses.
I've been too chicken to take photos of those who decide to, at the same time, take a shower, and wash the clothes were wearing, retaining only their underwear. This happens more than you think.
