chess, mate?



Me and Sam among the chess pieces on the giant outdoor chessboard. The funny thing is that the Island Cove site describes them as "almost life-sized chess pieces," in which case they should be as small as the ones in regular chessboards, hehe.

Of course, what they mean is that they're almost as big as real people. Still, they're beautifully carved pieces from Paete, Laguna, which is a source of pride for Filipinos for the craftsmanship of its wood sculptors. Posted by Picasa
