Kawahot bath, very relaxing

By: Kim Atienza

How would you like to bathe in a kawa? Yung malaki, malawak na parang malalim na palanggana nauso noong unang panahon sa mga probinsya.

Kawa bath is a hot bath topped with sambong andalagaw leaves.

It is offered at Kayak Inn, somewhere in Antique. Edwin, who attends to guests there, explained to Matanglawin TV:

“Galing po yan sa bundok, sisigaan na naming yung kahoy, pagmainit na yung tubig tatanggalin na naming yung apoy, lalagyan na naming ng malamig na tubig.”

In 1996, Greg Hutchinson, an Australian and former journalist, introduced the Kawa bath to the public. “I’m a kayaker and kayaking enthusiasts play on a river like this which is white-water, use a lot of energy, you get very tired, you also get very cold.”

According to New England Medicine hot bath benefits include: relaxation of muscles, relieves joint pains, good for blood pressure and lowers blood sugar.

Mula sa salitang hamtik, na malalaking langgam na laganap sa lugar, kinuha ang pangalan ng Antique. Pero alam nyo ba na ang mga ninuno ng nakatira dito ay mga datu mula Borneo? Na nabili ang karapatang manirahan sa isla kapalit ng mga salakot at kwintas na gawa sa ginto.

Flord Calawag Jr., OIC Tourism Officer of Antique said, “Antique is actually known as a province where the mountains meet the sea. So we’re actually blessed from natural, cultural, historical and culinary attractions here. Antique is going to be the next adventure capital of Panay Island.”

TRIVIA PA MORE (Various Sources): The Guiness Book of World Records for the Biggest Papal Crowd was recorded when Pope John Paul II offered mass to an estimated 4-5 million people in Luneta Park.

The Philippine Madrigal Singers known as “world’s best choir”, which bagged the 1997 European Choral Grand Pix, was the only Asian choir that defeated five regional champions from all over Europe.
