Gawang Pinoy


What do you think of this picture? This stuff is from mother. She handed it to me in her first visit in my boarding house.In Biliran Island we call this as "NIGO". This is made from bamboo grass. In my hometown only few people work in a handicraft now .They only make if there is an order .The price of "NIGO" depend its size.The small size cost fifty pesos.What is the use of " NIGO" ? The nigo is used to clean rice .It is used to separate rice hull to its grains since some rice husked is not milled well. I guess only few has "Nigo" in the kitchen :-)Thanks Nanay for giving this to me.I often used "nigo" to clean ricehusked before placing in my rice box .
