Home Sweet Home

     
     The rainy season has officially started on my side of the world weeks ago and this means one thing for those like me living in the rural areas..."rice planting time".... I love staring at the green scenery around our house as the rice paddies are filled with slender stalks that merrily sway with the wind. 

They need enough amount of water to thrive until the time they are transplanted in rows that to me look magical because I know that farmers have to toil from sun up to sun down to keep them viable until they are ready for harvest and then transformed into that soft, chewy white carbohydrate eaten best in moderate amount with native viands. 

     The following are shot on the rice fields surrounding our home sweet home. No, I do not own these lands but I fervently wish one day farming wont be as difficult as it is now here. I remain a full pledged citizen of this country I so dearly love and no matter where I might be years from now if God and time allow I will remain that girl who loves eating rice with clean bare hands.

  2. oh, beautiful colors of the sky and so peaceful scenery of the rice fields, i miss seeing rice field too, Zen. and like you, i never have given up on rice despite people blame it on gaining weight. i believe moderation is the key, which you stated so well. rice helps me become alive, haha, really, for if I can't have rice in a day, I tend to crave for a lot more foods, I eat more and I get terrible headache. However, if I eat some rice, I don't have cravings for high cholesterol and salty foods, and I tend to eat rice in moderation and stick to more veggies and fruits, the diet I grew up with and more used to.
