When travelling, we always look for the experience and the adventure, right? Although before we head back we think of the people we look forward to seeing again, and look for keepsakes that we can bring home. For me it’s like sharing a piece of the place. Some travelers also wanted to buy one for themselves and keep something to remember.
For this wandering tableau installment, I’ll be sharing souvenir photos (obviously..haha!) taken when we visited the mystical island of Siquijor, Philippines. If your looking for a one-stop shop in Siquijor where you can find every souvenir you can think of to give to your friends? Mark & Pek offers everything from key chains to mugs to the most expensive wood carvings.
These are the most sought voodoo doll keychains for 100 PHP each. Made up of colorful threads and a wooden head. I bought several of these for my friends since this was what’s highly requested.
Cute sand tube key chains with fine Siquijor beach sand.
Aside from the most famous voodoo dolls and sand-tube key chains, they still have a variety of key chains to choose from.
Love Potions. With Siquijor’s mystical feel, they’re famous for having love potions or “Lumay” in the native dialect. Although, I can’t prove the authenticity given that I haven’t bought one..haha!
These woodcarvings are quite pricey, from 200 php for the smallest to 2000 php for the biggest. I personally wanted to buy one for myself but decided to use my souvenir fund for the affordable ones for my friends.
Don’t forget to stop by the shop in case you have the time to visit Siquijor, I swear it’s worth your time. 🙂
