Today, I am posting another picture of the beggar in the Naga City market steps. This pic I took when I was leaving the market. I find that street pictures are more powerful especially the ones that speak of poverty. This beggar is just one of a billion people struggling, not for their shelter and belongings but they struggle with their life day to day. Usually people born with poverty never get out of it. If their parents are born below the poverty line; usually, the children grow up the same way. A sad reality not just in my country but all over the world.
The pictures were taken during the last day of Peñafrancia Festival. During the fiesta, you will see loads of artisans from all over Naga City and from other parts of Bicol selling their crafts. Fiesta’s is their busiest time.
I got myself a mortar & pestle and used it as a paper weight in my office to hold down my receipts. Not really a cook so I used it as an ornament. I think it’s pretty.
Sorry again for not posting lately. I have been busy but loving it. Anyways, I have been collecting pictures since I moved here in Naga City. I will try to do one picture post a day and show you around my province.
The picture was taken today in Naga City Market steps. I had to go and check out the markets for a wedding give away. No, I am not getting married. I am very single. This is for somebody else. Anyway, I spent the afternoon snapping up pictures of native handicraft bags. So every time I go to the market, I see this beggar. I always stop by and give money to the beggar upon leaving. It just breaks my heart. I asked him to smile to me but he was very shy. I think this photograph is very symbolic because despite the big economic improvement in my province; I still see a lot of poverty when I am out and about. Mostly these beggars have syndicates; they have a master. Despite knowing this, I still give money because how can you not too?
Sorry, I have been busy in the home and work front but I did managed to stop by two trade shows during the Peñafrancia Festival. A happy place for me!
The first one is the 2012 Bishop Francisco Gainza Trade Fair (BFGTF). It includes traditional participants in food processing and handicraft producers as well as consolidators and franchise businesses. The Bishop Francisco Gainza Trade Fair was organized by the Archdiocese of Caceres through the Caceres Social Action Foundation, Inc. (CASAFI). It’s origin traces back from Bishop Francisco Gainza who pioneered the First Agro-Industrial Fair in Bicol in 1875. The fair is geared towards alleviating poverty through entrepreneurship and solidarity that promotes integral development. (Cbanga360.net)
The second trade fair I attended is the first ever Bicol Travel and Food Expo (BITFEX).The 11th Regional Tourism Congress was held last September 12-16, 2012 at the fully air conditioned exhibit tent of the Avenue Plaza Hotel , the premiere boutique hotel in this city. The event was spearheaded by PBN TV5 and DZOK, in partnership with the City Government of Naga and Avenue Plaza Hotel, and in cooperation with the Department of Tourism V, the Department of Trade & Industry V, Department of Agriculture V, TESDA V, and the Bicol Regional Tourism Council (BRTC).

I enjoy going to trade shows that promote Filipino Products specifically Bicol Products. Always a passion of mine. I did meet a couple of vendors and traders who are of great talent. One even invited me to go to her organic farm in Baao (The La Huerta Organic & Leisure Farm) and also join her art group. I will do a post on a later date on each of this very talented vendors.
My home is slowly filling up with native handicraft from abaca, capiz, wooden, sweet tropical wines, bags, baskets, bauls and bayong. Even a walis! It is trully addicting for me. Besides a passion, I also like helping small artisans. With me buying their products, I get to help their business in a small way. When I have time, I also check the Naga City market, always hunting for products. Plus, when I am in traveling within Bicol, always make sure I check out the markets. It is a huge Cost Plus for me.
Please forgive me if I have not been following your blogs lately. I have been busy with setting up with my new venture and the same time looking for freelance … Continue reading Why I prefer freelancing?
