People Squat with Purpose - My Pop-A-Squat Post For ASEAN Hive Community Challenge

in #popasquat7 months ago

In this pop a squat challenge post, I will tell you why the person or people in this article squats.

In an early morning here in one of the biggest Public Market in Davao City. I head to look for opportunity in getting this images to join the #popasquat challenge and I got this images.

Public market here in a big city of Mindanao is super crowded and I cannot imagine I could see this people squatting on the road. The road full of people rushing to buy fresh food.

Not only busy at this time where social distancing is in place and still very tight with security and checking on individuals.

Yet, this young man is squatting on the road, holding his phone. As I passes by, took his picture and he quickly put his mask back on as it was not in placed before. It was place under his chain.

Here in Davao city, if you see someone does not wear mask, you are allowed to take pictures and you can send this to the authority. Many people here do not comply wearing mask on properly.

On The Other Side of The Road

Unbelievable! As I turn my head on the other side of the road, there are 2 men doing the same squatting. Looks like my lucky day!
I came to realise that this men are doing labor jobs. They are waiting for customers.

So when someone needs helps to carry their large bags of groceries or
sack of rice, this men are there to help you for a fee. They will not tell you how much it cost, it is up to the person how much they are willing to give.

The image above is me. The reason I squat here, I was picking up some stones to arrange them as I was waiting for the tour guide to bring us to the mountain. No chairs to rest so I squat.

This image was taken in Sarzlburg Austria, I think not only asian do squat. in the west and east they also do and that depends on the situation.
Like this 2 ladies here, they were feeding the swan with grass.
It was beautiful to see this 2 ladies feeding the swans.

Lol people can fight you here for taking pictures of them

Hehehe.. i know. But they think I am from the media. I think the same like you. But after taking the photo, specially the young lad, i told him, not to worry as this is for my blog challenge.

Okay great that is fair enough. I almost got in trouble here for taking a photo of a flower hanging on a wall. The owner of the house came out because he saw me from the CCTV.
He thinks I was taking a photo of his house so I explained it is for my blog.

I used to teach English with Filipino and Nigerian co-workers in Cambodia, and I did see so many instances of African culture clashing with Southeast Asian culture.

I have to admit there were some good laughs in those moments.

Lol... I can imagine such a moment can be funny, do you still teach English

I do, but only online these days, as we are stranded in Suriname, and here everybody wants to learn Spanish or Portuguese. I teach mostly Cambodian online though, as it's easy to find students, there isn't much competition in the Cambodian language game.

Ok that's good way to earn a living on line. I guess I can be a good English teacher. Maybe I should try it what do you think? ☺

Online is the way, and China is the pay. As far as I remember VIPKids is one of the premier Chinese online English schools.

I have several friends that make $20 hr doing it, but you need good wifi and about a week or so to commit to filling out forms, demo lessons, etc.
