barrio life

dahil nauna na si mike sa kanyang buhay-probinsya post, i will just let the photos do much of the talking.






































after five years, i was able to come back to this place. and just like before, even without the indulgence of modern technology, i enjoyed every moment of my stay. though life is relatively simple here, you can never say that people are not happy. in fact, some of them were saying that there's no other place they would want to be other than their bukid.

indeed, in the end, it is how we live our lives that defines our happiness.

i have one photo of myself topless in tattered jeans, wearing salakot, riding a kabaw (carabao in local dialect) and looking every bit a local. for souvenir's sake, i say.

  14. The only thing I love about technology is being able to capture these wonderful images. I miss walking on top of wooden bridges. We had one in the province. Check out my food blog: finelifeonabudget.weebly.com
