Introducing a local boatman from Damnoen Saduak Floating Market in Ratchaburi, Thailand. A floating market is a market where goods are sold from boats. There are hundreds of locally produced merchandise that are available for purchasing and bargaining. They have handicrafts, clothes, bags, conical hats, crafted candles, Thai silk, post cards, paintings, local dishes, assorted tropical fruits and many more. One of their purposes is to allow domestic visitors and international tourists to be able to experience the culture of riverside shopping.

 

Handsome Hand

When I was young, I merely thought that clapping is the only way our hands can produce sounds but it was later did I realize that our hands are blessed. Each hands is given an exceptional power. It is the power to talk  for and communicate with other people. “Isn’t it amazing? Isn’t it wonderful?” I asked myself. The world has more to offer and discover, indeed.

We should have pure hearts, which shine the darkest night. A heart that is willing to be a voice for others especially for those who always have a silent life, the deaf people.

Mt. Ulap – City of Clouds

Date: January 28, 2017

Location: Benguet, Philippines

A lost girl found her new Neverland. The sky was pretty blue and clouds were round and true. Hence, she named it as Mount Ulap. The girl’s eyes were caught by its enthralling scene and the wind offered cold kisses to her young skin. As she roamed around, there she saw some cows resting on grassland at the peak, heard the chirping of a hummingbird hiding on a tree and a little boy singing a love song at the summit. It was indeed one of the best moments of her life. #MountUlap
