Tricycles and Places

Pwede papicture? (Can you take a picture of me?) – My friend asked me as she hurriedly gave her phone to me and then she entered hastily in a rela (also known as motorela), a kind of tricycle here in Bantayan Island. I, then, eventually took a snap and when she went back to me to get her phone, I asked why, of all things in Bantayan, did she want to be photographed in this tricycle. She replied that this tricycle in Bantayan was different from the tricycles in other places because it looked like a mini jeepney.

I kept mum and thinking “Bitaw noh, the tricycle designs differ from place to place. PALAWAN, BATANES, PAGADIAN…these places have different tricycle designs.” And that hit me to get this notion to collect photos of tricycles and other interesting modes of transportation in different places in the Philippines. So far here is my collection of photos of trikes.


Napaka-cute talaga ng tricycle na ito! I have several photos of tricycles in Tagbilaran, Bohol, but this one is really eye-catching with its pang-ARMY color. (BTS yarn?🤔 Charowt! HAHA!) Anyhoo, I find the tricycles in Bohol even more interesting because Biblical verses or scriptures are painted at the back of each trike. As what I have learned, the officials of the capital city of Bohol, Tagbilaran City, passed a city ordinance requiring that a Scripture must be inscribed at the back of all tricycles. Accordingly, anyone caught not complying with this ordinance will either be fined or have his license revoked.

Please correct me if I’m wrong. And I would like to know if this ordinance still holds true up to this time.🤔

swipe right😅


This is one of my fave trikes. It has a door and its color is silver. Napakaastig tingnan!


Sana all my day off! Day off for tricycles! Dipolog City trikes are interesting because each of them has a day off. JUST ZOOM IN! 🧐


Bilang isang matabang tao ang hirap ikasya dito pagdalawa kayo sasakay na magkatabi sa loob! HAHAHA! Kaya need ko na talaga magdiet! HAHAHAHA!

5. nag-eedit pa po ako ! I’m still editing! 🤣🤣🤣 HAHAHA so stay tuned. Some of my photos are in FB

If I have the opportunity to travel, taking photos of trikes or riding in them gives me so much excitement and joy that I will be having additional photos for my collection. HAHA! I hope I can travel and wander again.


Thanks for reading. ♥

How about you? Do you like trikes? Have you tried riding a tricycle? Tell me about your story.   I would love to hear from you? Please connect thru  my FB page and Instagram. Join me in my adventure and misadventure. Let’s chase those potatoes.

Those naughty potatoes roll so fast that I could hardly catch up with them in SOMEWHERE IN THE PHILIPPINES.  I wonder what place will they be venturing next for these little mischiefs love to give delicate challenges and if you do love to accept the challenge, you may support here 👉   Let’s catch them all  for the next chasing potatoes adventure.

P.S. I put a lot of effort in taking these photos and I placed hidden watermarks in all of them, so please don't download them freely without asking permission. If you want to feature my photos without watermark, just message me.

Chasing Potatoes

Why Chasing Potatoes? I’m Chasing Potatoes. I chase time and opportunities because just like round potatoes they roll and get lost. I chase them to store memories to last a lifetime. I make haste, running after them, fearful that they might be gone. That’s why I go places on land or in water.My story tells about the journey of chasing time and saying yes to wonderful opportunities.
