Surrounded by seas, the markets at Palawan are the sources of stories, rumors, and tall tales. Familiar with Hemingway’s “The Old Man and the Sea” or Melville’s Moby-Dick? Sea and seafaring stories can be found here. Although you could not really comprehend what they say, they can try to share the story of the day in English if you have the ear to listen. There are simple phrases that you can employ when you find yourself in the market such as “magandang araw po (good day), magkano po? (how much?) sariwa po ba to? (is this fresh?) Palaweños, just like all Filipino, find it admirable and entertaining when foreigners try to speak their language. It makes them feel special.
