The kiping (colorful leaf-like wafers made of rice paste) is what makes the Pahiyas Festival in Lucban, Quezon lively. All the houses in the area are decorated with these colorful “leaves”, fruits, vegetables, straw hats and fans in different sizes and shapes. It’s the locals’ way of saying thanks for their bountiful harvest.

The colorful kipings are edible. After the festival, these are either grilled or fried to make chips.
