BORN IN MYTHOLOGY. PERFECTED IN RITUAL.
On a humble piece of land lived a Filipina who tended a field of ube. She was a farmer by day and an alchemist by night.
Often, passersby would stop and scoff, "Why don't you grow something more beautiful? Something that would sell for more money? Something imported?" And they sighed "Ah, women!" The farmer was no stranger to outsiders thinking her a simple laborer growing nothing but a lowly root, nor was she a stranger to attempts to steal her land and cultivation process.
But under the light of a full moon, she harvested her crops and laid them down on her hearth next to her tools - itak, palayok, gata, panutsa. She looked up at Dayang and whispered incantations to honor the deities. Weaving the magic of apoy, hangin, tubig, and lupa with the magic within her, she created the most delicious potion the world has ever known. Oooh, babae! Oooh, bae!
