Pahiyas Festival Lucban, Quezon May 15, 2011 A colorful Pahiyas window  - adorned with “kiping”, farm produce like rice, fruits, vegetables and even poultry like ducks and chicken. Each window during the “fiesta“ was decorated as thanksgiving for a bountiful harvest.  The colorful chandelier like décor is the local “Kiping” made of rice flour, shaped using “kabal” leaves and colored in vibrant hues. Learned that a regular “kiping” costs around six pesos apiece and each round on the chandelier would consists of at least 100 “kiping” thus a regular small chandelier or “anok” for the locals would costs a little over two thousand pesos. Indeed an expensive offering of thanks. “Pahiyas” which literally means “to decorate” happens annually in the town of Lucban, Quezon every May 15.
