UMA is a Masbatenyos term referring to countryside, farm and a rural area. Living this place is so simple yet beautiful. It has a very calm, relaxing and enjoyable ambiance. Your life couldn’t fill anything that can harm your health, no traffic to experience(that we all know for how’s traffic affect us) no worries about the food to eat, all is fresh from the farm to our table. A lot of greens to offer. Then feel free to breath in with cool breeze every morning that definitely will freshen up your day with a smile ☺ ☺ ☺ witness the rise of the sun ☀ little by little while having a cup of coffee ☕ at the Terrace or balcony. A very natural living, living of life. Great!!!!
But wait, living here is not complete with starting your day by simply feeding native chickens which is called by Masbatenyos “magtukdag san mga manok” following with taking care of some farm animals such as goats, carabao, cows, pigs and many more. Of course don’t forget to clean the lawn or the gardens where trees,plants and flowers grows. Awesome!!!
Daily routine at the farm
Farming or an Paga – UMA is a common job at the rural area. It’s really a job, a noble Job than anyting else, because FARMERS Feed the World.
Whatever earnings that farmers will have ay yon na ang gagamiting sa pang araw-araw na pangangailangan nila. I’d really salute to all the farmers who give their entire life para mahatiran ang lahat ng pagkain sa araw-araw.
Another thing, to live here is not as abundance as what the city has. You just have to go for what’s the place going to offer. There is no light, Yes no light ;-( because there is no electricity for people to serve lights on the street and for your home to see things in a wider angle and clearer vision. Even tools for preparing food is not like in the city, it’s very simple to live with it.
During day time
Waiting for sunset
Why I wrote this simple story of our little farm o an amon UMA? kasi subra-subra ko nang namimis ang home town ko , ang pamilya ko. And why I can’t be home because I have make work, to reach my quota as ahente para makauwi, that’s the agreement given my boss to me. I’m sad but It’s okay, konting tiis na lang din.
— Sana nagustuhan niyo, Damo po na salamat. Dios Mabalos!—–
