EXPERIENCE RICE at SM MOA
November 23-26, 2009
Music Hall, SM Mall of Asia
in my 3years of working in PhilRice, i encountered different faces from different races but only a few made a mark in my heart and mind, and most of them are the youth that we once believed to be the future of our country.
i love taking pictures of them since their emotions transpire in their eyes. having been taken them with an expressive eyes tells already a story of the whole picture.
one of my favorite subject is this kid. they call him Lupin since at a young age he already knows how to steal money and valuable things from people. i actually featured him already. check here.
Studies made by the Food and Nutrition Research Institute and the Bureau of Agricultural Statistics show that Filipino consumers waste some 25,000 bags of rice everyday where every Filipino in a household contributes a spoonful of cooked rice to the food misuse. This means that about 11 billion pesos worth of rice is eaten annually by their pets or even pests at home. If consumers will only use rice more wisely, the government’s importation will become less. The total daily rice ‘wastage’, if conserved, can feed some 3.8 million people in a day.
RICE IS LIFE.
Celebrate LIFE; Celebrate RICE this November – the National Rice Awareness Month.
Be part of the many Pinoys who will express their love for rice through a fan sign. This activity aims to instill the importance of rice to our lives. If every Filipino will learn how to save rice, there will be enough rice for everyone.
Participants will also get the chance to win some prizes.
1. Create your most creative way of saying how much you love RICE. For example, you can snap a photo of yourself while holding a piece of paper with the “I love rice” phrase. (You can use your photography skills and Photoshop, too. Moreover, manipulations of photos are also accepted.)
2. When you’re done, email that digital photo/artwork at firstname.lastname@example.org and use I love rice Fan Sign as a subject. Place also your nickname and contact details in your message.

pero sa kabila nang mga dinanas ng mga nasalanta ng bagyo nakita ko pa rin ang mga mukang handang bumangon. naisip ko tuloy na iba talaga ang Pinoy. anjan pa yung tipong nagagawa pang ngumiti at magpakyut sa harap ng camera sa kabila ng trahedya.
noong linggo, habang nanonood ako ng mga balita patungkol sa Bagyong Ondoy at sa mga taong nabiktima nito, hindi ko mapigilan ang sarili ko na mahabag. sa sobrang grabe nang nangyari, sinabi ko sa sarili ko na hindi enough na pinapanood ko lang ang mga taong to na naawa at ipinagdarasal, I NEED TO DO SOMETHING.
dahil jan, kinausap ko ang presidente namin ng dorm na mangalap ng cash at in kind donations. di siya nagdalawang isip at sinuportahan ang ideyang ito. kaya noong lunes nagsimula na kaming magflood patungkol dito. at its a good thing naging positive ang response ng mga tao sa PhilRice.
nakalikom kami ng Php 22, 463 cash donations (not bad)
walong boxes ng damit, kumot, etc
at bigas, na galing mismo sa PhilRice
