    This is Iloilo--Central Philippines...

    Me and Tokoji paid a visit to a group of children who live in a nearby island in a town called Batad.

    Boatride to the small island takes about 10 to 15 minutes...

    Tokoji seem to be excited to reach the island--where atleast 50 families live.

    Belonging to families of fisherfolks, most of the time, they help with the livelihood...

    At times, the catch of the day is not even enough to feed a family.

    Life is hard enough for these kids. What makes it worse is that sometimes, they even have to swim for almost an hour from a school on the mainland, if their parents are out in the sea fishing, and couldn't fetch them on time...

    Thanks guys for appreciating---Its a pleasure sharing these pictures to fellow Skull Brainers....

    Here's more.....

    Shooting this documentary was hampered by giant jellyfish which according to locals, usually come out during the months of May and June

    very beautiful pictures. i do need a better camera :D

    seeing your photo journals also reminded me how previleged (or silly?) i am to be in a position to chase expensive pieces of plastic instead of worrying about my next meal.

    Yes, I think they are so intrigued by Toko---they kinda like his cuteness and shine...maybe next time, I will try to bring a toy that I can leave with them as presents or a small token...


    Thanks everyone for the compliments! Till the next toy adventure! :)
