An Ambulant Life: Meeting a Maglalako

* a man selling native products

In these times when a purchase can be made with just a simple click on the computer mouse, it is quite surprising to still see ambulant vendors selling household materials. We have of course those who sell taho, rice delicacies, among others, but bulky objects are simply an exaggeration. Tiredness definitely overcomes the prospect of profit. Lugi ka pa, ika nga. But then we see those kinds of vendors even from our history books and so it can be said too that such activities are rooted from our culture and tradition. It will be a long time before we see the extinction of our maglalako.
