TELECOMBAT | Can't figure out why it was named like that but these ride looks like a cross between a giant octopus and a whirling dervish | Photo by Julius D. Mariveles

GIANT SWINGING DRAGON BOAT | Forgot what this ride is called but it surely is frightening judging from the way these people were screaming | Photo by Julius D. Mariveles

THE OPERATOR OF ONE OF THE RIDES at the carnival | They've been around some parts of the country, he said | He works long nights but it earns enough for what I need | Photo by Julius D. Mariveles

WE WERE TAUGHT THAT life is like a wheel. Sometimes we're up, sometimes we're down | That's what religion taught us but in the case of the pula-puti, it also depends on the color, too | The moderon version of the pula-puti utilizes the roleta instead of the usual style of dropping the balls into a large funnel | Photo by Julius D. Mariveles

  2. Yes, Cee. Forgot what it’s really called? Is it Anchors Away? Did not jot down the name of that ride. Thanks!
