Kalachuchi: Used to be my favorite
I don't actually know how to call this flower in the English term, but this is otherwise known as "kalachuchi" in our own local term. Well, I say that this kind of flower really blossoms up with me. It has been the witness of my childhood days. Aside from its own aroma, this has a lot of functions to us. We used this as our offering to the Altar of our chapel and we also have this as our decorations when we celebrate fiesta in our little barrio. But the most funny thing about it is that, when I was little, we used this flower as part of our game also known as "takyan" in bisayan term. That is why this "kalachuchi" is very memorable to me for most of my childhood days.
