Photo Hunt: Orange


I know... i know. My entry is so expected... it's almost halloween and all, hence the pumpkins. Let me explain. In our country, halloween mostly means costumes and horror movies. Pumpkin carving is not part of our tradition, and i don't even think we have the type of pumpkin typically used for this purpose. Imagine my surprise when i saw these authentic carved pumpkins as part of a mall's decoration. I just had to take photos! I usually just see them in movies and magazines.
And then i went to the grocery and this is what i saw: decorative gourds for sale for 200 Pesos per kilo. They are cutest little pumpkins ever! They are meant as decors and apparently they can stay fresh for as long as 2-3 months.

How exciting! I never saw those in the Phil either- just posters or pictures with pumpkins, etc. SM Marikina had banners last halloween with pieces of pumpkin pie on them, but we couldn't find pumpkin pie in the Phil. :-p

Halloween is not in a big way here in New Zealand.

Nice shots of the pumpkins and gourds! The gourds can be dried. We bought some that had been decorated at craft fair this year. Marianne posted some photos of them.
