During my stay in Olana Resort here in Pangasinan province, I chose to go for an early morning run every now and then. I took me through a near village called barangay Laois. I wanted to make a vlog today but ominous clouds afar near Bolinao prevented me going there to shoot one. I decided to walk through barangay Laois to film how the Filipinos live.
Before entering the village I got welcomed by smiling children who giggled upon seeing a foreigner like me. Many children deep into the province have never seen a white man before.
A guy sleeping on top of his tricycle; a woman cooking and doing the laundry outside. It was interesting seeing Filipinos live their daily lives as I entered the village. They weren't hostile at all and allowed me to film them, many smiling and greeting me along the way.
It was a rural area and a bunch of men were working on the fields, harvesting rice and things like that. Many animals including dogs were part of the sceneries and I filmed everything providing me interesting footage for the vlog I was making. I ended up the day ordering a Sprite at a local sari-sari store for just 8 PHP (0.16 USD).
The walk through Barangay Laois had made me feel so relaxed. The laidback atmosphere of how the Filipinos live in their village turned out to be transmittable. I went to Sual and had myself a nice boneless bangus meal at a restaurant overlooking the water.
