barrel man

on sunday, i finally had some free time to go around town so i hopped on the trolley and proceeded to waikiki beach. from there, i walked along kalakaua to check out the stores, including the international market place.

then, in one of the souvenir stores, i found this --

i had to look twice to see if at the bottom of the barrel man is the word 'baguio' and check if i was instantly teleported back to the city of pines. i was not. i was still in the middle of oahu.

which brings me to the realization: is the barrel man from baguio not an original pinoy creation? or is this barrel man from hawaii originally from baguio? hmmm. sino ang may alam?
