My Good Man, this heathen calls himself "Magz" as if his own name wasn't good enough. He claims to own these titles "Web Developer Baller" and a "Social Media Ho". It appears that this ruffian has also a talent in digital art.

Bamboo is a common raw material in the Philippines.

Compared to wood that will take five to seven years to grow and mature for industrial use, bamboo only takes three years.

This is why it is common to see bahay kubo or nipa hut in the countryside and even in some locations in the urban area because the materials needed are easy to find.

Besides, owning a bahay kubo made out of bamboo is cool!

And you want to be cool, right?

Without a doubt, bahay kubo is not a thing of the past. It is a 21st century gem.
