    Kapre "daw" are strange tree demons that smoke huge cigars.

    The term kapre was derived from the Spanish "kapfre", in turn from the Moors, from the Arabic Kaffir, an African non-believer. It is suggested that when the conquistadors first came to the Philippines, they heard about the mystical creatures approximating their kafre, and soon the conqueror's lexicon prevailed in any areas.

    Be very careful when trees move without wind. This means that a kapre is present at the very top of the tree. The kapre sits quietly smoking a leg-sized cigar that never burns out. It terrifies passerby with its size, glowing eyes and cigar, but it is otherwise harmless. It is said to live in trees, abandoned houses and ruined buildings. They are believed to appear only at night.

    I haven't seen one, they say kapre is a friendly being. Some peoples seems to seen those things and I heared some of thier stories. Its quite fantastic to see a huge person with a leg sized cigar that never burns out on the top of a tree.
