Bahaykubo is made up of cogon (a kind of grass) or nipa leaves, bamboo and other
natural materials found in the forest. It is surrounded by various kinds of
vegetables that feed the family throughout the year.

The ‘Bahaykubo’ song (popular to Filipino children during the past generations)
best describes the concept of bahaykubo.

Bahay kubo kahit munti
(My nipa hut, although it’s small)
Ang halaman doon ay sari-sari.
(The plants are diverse)
Singkamas at talong,
(Turnips and eggplant)
Sigarilyas at mane,
(Winged beans and peanuts)
Sitaw bataw patani.
(String beans, edible pots, lima beans)
Kundol patola, upo’t kalabasa,
(White melon, gourd, white pumpkin and squash)
at saka mayro’n pang labanos, mustasa.
(and still there are more, radish, mustard)
Sibuyas, kamatis, bawang at luya,
(Onions, tomatoes, garlic and ginger)
Sa paligidligid nito’y panay na linga.
(All around are lush sesame plants)
