Where’s My Rice – an emotional photo taken in an economically challenged area of Manilla. In this image, the young girl plays on the swing, with a watchful eye on the women of the community. The women were busy preparing the main meal of the day – fish and rice, the staple diet. Adjacent to the girl are a number of other children at play, while waiting for their meal. In the background, some of the community women go about their daily chores, busy washing clothes and cleaning up.

Project: Happiness Despite Poverty. Location: Philippines
Where’s My Rice …despite the abject poverty these people find themselves in, there is always a feeling of happiness around. In general, the ‘happiness’ factor is indeed consistent across all of the people encountered in the Philippines, regardless of their respective socio-economic group. It seemed that this ‘happiness’ amongst Filipinos to be deep-rooted part of their DNA. Possibly, it also has a link to their religion (Catholic mainly), in which they deeply believe that those less fortunate today, will be rewarded in the next life.
An Emotional Image… Where’s My Rice – I felt privileged to have been invited into the community by one of its inhabitants, a rickshaw driver. In this image, the young girl plays on the swing, with a watchful eye on the women of the community. The women were busy preparing the main meal of the day – fish and rice, the staple diet. The image is full of emotion and activity. Adjacent to the girl are a number of other children, also playing while waiting for their meal to be prepared. In the background, some of the community women go about their daily chores, busy washing clothes and cleaning up.
