I like the way the pods hang down from the branches and with their multi purpose usage then perhaps money really does grow on trees. If one of the pods fell on your head you'd need the cotton wool substitute from quite a few of them. <abbr><em>Martyns last blog post..<a href="http://www.thaisabai.org/?p=5364" rel="nofollow">Thai Ladyboys - Pattaya</a></abbr></em> The Kopak tree was a mystery to me until I viewed this post.

The family thought I was crazy always taking pictures on the farm but there was so much to remember and that I wanted to write on that I didn't want to forget it.

I don't know anything about the Kopak tree but I expect there is a lot about the farming side of Thailand that would interest me.

We also use the fiber to make pillows, but the down side of using kopak/kekabu as a pillow stuffing is that they will get hard over time. So after a while, it is not a nice fluffy pillow anymore. <abbr><em>linas last blog post..<a href="http://urutoranohihi.blogspot.com/2009/05/gachapon-madness.html" rel="nofollow">Gachapon Madness</a></abbr></em> We call the Kopak tree, Kekabu in my part of the world.
