This anting-anting is an interesting companion to Santo Niñong hubad. It is called Kambal Tuko. Tuko is the Tagalog word for the gecko lizard. The gecko lizard lives on trees and is well known for its ability to cling quite firmly onto it. This lizard’s clinging ability has found itself into the Filipinos’ language and culture through the phrase “kapit tuko.” It signifies anyone who will cling on anything at all cost — like a public official, for example, who refuses to step down even if his or her ability to perform successfully all the responsibilities of the office is already in doubt. We say he or she is “kapit tuko” with respect to the position.
The lizard’s legendary clinging ability has also found its way into the realm of anting-antings. The association is obvious. If one has the clinging power of the lizard then he or she acquires the power to stabilize and make permanent a situation — like a romantic relationship or a love affair.
Use this talisman or anting-anting to make sure that your relationship with a man or a woman will last for a long time, if not forever.
