A hammock tied under the coconut trees. Hammock is Duyan in Filipino.
A closer look at the rattan-made hammock.
We have two hammocks in the house, one that is made of abaca fiber and this one. The most comfortable is the one made from the abaca fiber because it is softer to lie on and the fiber goes with the shape of your body. The rattan-made hammock on the other hand, is quite uncomfortable at the back. One needs to put a comforter or a thick cloth first before you can lie down comfortably. But once you get down to business, it's the best resting place to be (under the coconut trees, with the soft wind blowing your face). My father installed this particular hammock at the garden, not for me I reckon, but I am its most avid customer.
Today is my mum's b-day. Happy birthday Inay!!! She is 60. :-)
