Oh, My Rice!

In this part of the world, rice is staple food. The Philippines is said to be the 8th largest rice producer in the world.  As you go around the country then (excluding the highly urbanized areas), you will find rice fields frequently invading your view.  You will find these rice fields in abundance in Luzon, Western Visayas, Southern Mindanao and Central Mindanao.
There is something about looking at rice fields that somehow relaxes me whenever I have the chance to travel in the countryside. It’s green beauty refreshes my eyes that I even forget that from them comes the rice laid out on our dining table three times a day. Ah, the view of green fields, the blue sky, the white clouds and the solid presence of mountains. These are things that I would love to see as often as I can although I also love living in cities 🙂

  8. I remember my childhood years living in the very country part of Bukidnon. We used to grow rice for our consumption and I am so good in planting them until harvest time. I missed that time, and I am proud to have been through the hardship as I have a lot to tell my kid(s) about it. 🙂
