i don't smoke

passing by one of the street vendors i noticed that most of the candies and the bubble gums were well arranged. i rarely see vending box as organized as this on the streets.i also realized one thing, i don't eat or consume any thing being sold in this box. i don't like candies and bubble gums even when i was a kid. last time i ate bubble gum was when i had my first flight years years back. i like chocolates but there's none here.

cigarette? no. thanks!

kung ako ang tindero ayokong pakunan ng picture di ka man lang bumili..heheh

the donG said...

bulitas, thanks.

lawstude, thanks. ayos yan kasi it usually comes out of depression and pressure daw. pero hindi naman lahat.

dakilang islander, hahaha... bumili naman ako ng dyaryo sa kanya pero sa box na yan wala talaga.

Definitely a neat and tidy street vendor. Chocolates might melt down under the weather on the street. Unless you're a fan of melted chocolate sold by street vendors :P

lagal[og] said...

that's one neat vendor you saw dom.

anyway, sad to see that for a lot of our fellow pinoys, vending cigarettes are a common livelihood. i used to be a chainsmoker a long time ago but now i disdain even the slightest whiff of smoke. i empathize with the authorities who call the trade vending death. i should know, my dad died of lung cancer at 52.

That's one neat and organised vendor. They are familiar sights on streets of Indonesia and Philippines, we don't have them in Singapore.

I love chocolates too.

Luke said...

It's a good thing that you do not smoke. cool picture!

the donG said...

napaboaniya, you have a point. i don't want eating melted chocolates.

oggie, the truth why i am not smoking because my grandfather died of lung cancer too and my father is a chain smoker. making me curse smoking.

it's good to know that you were able to quit smoking because it takes a hard time taking it out.

hi eastcoastlife, yes. this is usually seen on third world countries like the philippines.

i'm addicted to chocolates that's why we always make sure there's enough chocolate in the frig.

luke, thanks.

Dra. Rio said...

ako man ang tindera ng candies na yan e tlagang aayusin ko ng ganyan kaayos lalo na kapag nalaman ko na ang aking paninda ay mailalagay ng isang astig na blogger sa kanyang astig na blog=)

hindi din ako mahilig sa kendi dahil wala ako pambili..hehe=)

dave said...

whoaw... super organized? cool... heheh... i only tried once and i told myself never to smoke from then on...

i just drink occasionally, haha..

Dina said...

Dear donG, I love seeing and reading your blog. Whatever the subject, your write from the heart.

Karen of Sillymonkeez said...

Maybe this vendor realizes the importance of merchandising and the perception of quality?

What no Heath bars?

manilenya said...

Wow! you're one a healthy guy for sure..keep it up.

Thanks for adding me to your blogroll!

the donG said...

hi doc rio, napapatawa talaga ako sa yo. siguro ang saya mong kasama. hehehe... buti na lang hindi ka naging tindera kasi baka pati mga ibang tindahan paaayusin mo ng ganito ang kanilang binebenta.

walang pambili ng kendi pero buhay naman ang blog life. hehehe... tsaka love life nga din pala.

dave, hehehe... i also drink in some occasions but smoking, it's a no no. good that you didn't stick to it.

hi dina, thanks a lot! i appreciate that. it gives me more purpose to blog.

redlan said...

Wendy Lopez-Redaon said...

hi there =)

you take very good pictures! I find it interesting that you chose the streets during the night time as a subject. Do you ever shoot street children?

Lyzius said...

LAD said...

haha ang totoo natatawa pa rin ako hanggang ngayon sa name mo. :d The DONG rocks! haha

I don't smoke either. At ang cute ng header mo haha. Galing!

Salamat sa pagdaan!

the donG said...

hi wendy, thanks! yes i do. you can check the "special articles" links. here are some (though not all were shoot at night because the nightscape is just a theme for this season):

http://dongism.blogspot.com/2008/03/reflecting-happiness.html

hi lyzius, parang ganun na nga. since my theme is nightscape i make sure i find time staying outside late night producing these photos.

lad, thanks! the dong nga talaga it was really supposed to be "the dom" but doesn't it mean someting else. hahaha... im glad you like the header. i normally change it depending on the blog's theme.

keep in touch.

Maya said...

I'm hoping to be as organized as this person.

I'm not fun with gums too. i've tried to substitute it to my ciggie it didn't work,i was having gastric pain.

Like your shots taken at night, DonG.

mimi said...

ang galing nga ng pagkaayos ng candies! oc siguro ang tindera.. i envy her/him..

saludo po ako sayo hindi kayo naninigarilyo..

SandyCarlson said...

I love your night photos. Unlike you, I gobbled this stuff up when I was a kid. I have filled teeth as a result! Better to admire the colorful wrappers and move on.

the donG said...

hi maya, yes. maybe because he is with it for the whole night. so he might have thought of fixing it while no one is buying.

excess candies can indeed cause gastric pain to some.

hi mimi, hahaha... the vendor is actually an old man. maybe he is oc. hehehe... salamat at saludo din ako sa lahat ng hindi nagiging dependent sa paninigarilyo.

hi sandy c, thanks! i also gobbled chocolates when i was a kid but never with candies.

Panaderos said...

I enjoyed eating candy too when I was a kid but the fondness for it faded when I reached my teens. I hardly eat them anymore.

Dra. Rio said...

di ko napansin yung title...you don't smoke pala...hehehe...mabuti!!
neither do i..apir!!

Rebecca said...

wow really organized!...the vendor might have an OCD like me? =) he! he! j/k ;)

No smoking for this Skippyheart of mine as well. =)

Btw, thanks for droppin' by my site Dong...TC

Heart of Rachel said...

That's a very organized vendors box. I think it's great that you don't smoke. Great find.

IA said...

Hello there! I was going to say your mom did a great job in teaching you not to eat sweets kasi hindi ka kumakain ng candy, kaya lang you like chocolates din pala hehe. Ako din ganyan, can survive without candies but cannot live without chocolates.

Wise choice, not smoking.

the donG said...

panaderos, that's good coz many people are still into eating candies on meetings, conferences and travels.

hi doc ria, hehehe... may apir pa. buti na lang hindi ka rin naninigarilyo.

hi rebecca, that's good coz sometimes it's not nice to see ladies smoking. specially when they do it publicly.

i think this old man really has an ocd.

hi rachel, thanks. the vendor is actually an old man. inspiring.

ia, hahaha... actually my mother doesn't stop us from eating candies. i simply don't like it. and yes many people are addicted to chocolates. thanks for dropping by.

Sandy B & Dick said...

Pretty to look at (also a nice shot!), but definitely not good for you. I don't eat them. But...bring on the chocolate for me!

Sandy B & Dick said...

Oh yes...I meant to add that Dick and I are non-smokers, and so are our three adult kids!!! Never have, never will...yuck!

Toe said...

Si Monk yata yung nagbebenta niyan ah. :)

We're the same... I don't smoke nor chew gum. But I eat chocolate too. Right now, someone just gave me choc-nut and pastillas de leche. :)

Vick said...
