Filipina Smile

Portrait of a Filipina smiling, taken in Bontoc, northern Philippines (island of Luzon). It seems that not everyone uses Filipina to indicate a female Filipino, but I think it's correct given the Spanish influence in the Philippines.

Bringing Home the Bacon - How to carry a live pig from a pole

Three men carrying a live pig hanging from a pole in Bontoc, Philippines (Luzon). This is the preferred method of transporting your pig (especially when still alive) along the edges of rice fields where there are no roads. Though the "bringing home the bacon" phrase does seem to fit, I don't remember ever eating bacon in the Philippines. Certainly we ate pork (lechon baboy), but not usually as bacon.

Portrait of an Old Woman working in Rice Fields - Philippines, Bagabag

Take a good look at this old Filipina's face; she has a lot to tell. No doubt she's spent years working hard in the rice fields of Bagabag, Luzon, Philippines. Along with the other women in her working group, she is picking young rice shoots, which will be later re-planted in different rice fields farther apart. Astute viewers may notice this is the same lady in my Gathering Rice Shoots photo I posted a while back, taken from above looking down (though you can't see her face in that photo).

Rice is initially planted close together in fields like this, and then the shoots are re-planted farther apart. This woman is gathering the rice shoots and tying them in bundles.

Girl in the Window

This girl stared back at Katie and me as we squatted inside with her parents. It was almost completely dark, but as always the Filipino hospitality overflowed this tiny house in northern Luzon. I don't remember specifically what they served us to eat, but I remember it was generous.

I caught a split-second glimpse of this scene out of our taxi window the last time we were in Manila. There seem to be a lot of untold stories represented here...
