Sorry for disappearing for quite a while. Work have been pretty busy and I am just back from a trip to Subang, Indonesia where I had taken upon a voluntary role to assist in the education of rice farmers in farming mechanisation.
I got a chance to try my hand at harvesting rice and boy was it hard work!
We harvest about 20m x 10m area of rice, and it only gave us 3.5 sacks of rice and a whole load of body aches. Can you imagine how backbreaking the work is for the rice farmer? Even a small palmful of rice grains were precious to them as the rice were sold by weight.
Had a couple of days interacting and educating individual farmers and their groups and it was such an enriching experience to hear about the ways they try to generate income for their family.
We also got to taste some of the crazy awesome pineapples which were sold in the area. Juicy sweet, everyone was happily stuffing their face!
I will be heading out to Philippines for work again next week, but once I am back, I will definitely have some great new content for you guys and a crazy awesome giveaway ready!
