Pangasinan Laoac 334
Mang Victor Woodcraft is one of the pioneer makers of bakya, a wooden Japanese slipper, in Pangasinan. Started in 1972, Mang Victor who is a worker in a bakya plantation decided to start his own business together with his siblings. Sadly, bakya is now becoming scarcely demanded by their old customers. Fortunately, the government of Laoac is looking for ways to support the production since they consider it a part of Laoac's culture. Aside from making it as a foot wear, they also produce bakya house displays, and even bakya trophies.

Remember the early days of just chilling with your family on a picnic, a gathering or a fiesta that won't be complete without puto on the side. Experience how these are made by heading at Aling Marlyn's Puto plantation. Observe how her family help each other in cooking a thousand pieces of puto every day, that is only from the minimum orders they get on a day to day basis.
