The New Bilao

Makati Cinema Square green mango vendor-- the electric fan cage is the new bilao.

A variety of green mango and its respective army of vendors are in season on the Manila streets. Have I had my head up a certain crevice or is the use of old electric fan metal cages a new development in the ambulatory vendor scene? Obviously, someone with access to a large mango harvest, old mayonnaise/pickle plastic containers, and a junk shop with a lot of broken fans has been deploying troops.

Two cages, with accompanying wooden frames for nestling.

A vendor along Adriatico, with a higher wooden frame (which corresponds to his seating level).

Pan out.

Mabini vendor.
