SURVIVOR:MAKING FIRE by mangyans

>> Friday, November 14, 2008

Yesterday's early evening visits by the youngest son RUVI of my employer,this is a part of his daily routine,rain or shine,told me that the Israel's episode of SURVIVOR REALITY SHOW will be shoot in the Philippine's soon.what a nice news I've heard.EUROPEAN countries 3 episodes of this reality shows or the first episode was then shoot in the Philippines way back few years ago before the Americans franchised the title.NOW i will show how the mangyans,one of some ethnic tribes in the Philippines that can only be found in Mindoro island where I came from, pictures was taken in PANAYTAYAN in the town of MANSALAY just few kilometers distance from where I was born and grown up. This is the normal practice in the jungle or those peoples living on a nearby mountains even though childrens can are doing this.I evenly remembered when I was a young girl,groups of mangyan's came always to my mother to exchange their root crops and wild fruits to old clothes,preserved fish, canned sardines and rice.They don't accept cash money in any forms because they don't know what it is,they've never been in schools before. And now mostly they are educated already and some are professionals. One funny moments last year when I attended my father's funeral, my husband told me that he needs to change his cellphone because he saw mangyan holding one cellular phone with the latest model than what he has.

HERE ARE SOME STEPS OF EASY MAKING FIRE IN THE MIDDLE OF ANYWHERE...............

STEP #1.gather dry leaves of trees around(I'm using coconut husks)branches to use must be dry alsoSTEP #2. SPLIT THE BRANCH as you can see there,insert piece of smaller branch then slip down rattan string or any vines around.

STEP #3.PULL THE RATTAN STRING WHILE STANDING AND STEPPING ON THE BRANCH,PULL AS MUCH AS YOU CAN or UPS AND DOWN


STEP #4.AS A MATTER OF SECONDS SMOKES WILL COMES OUT, blow it slowly so that small fire will sparks more.

STEP #5.ADD SOME DRY LEAVES or COCONUT HUSKS if there is makes more faster fire


AND FINALLY YOU HAVE FIRE! NOW you can cook anything you want in the middle of the jungle.
