Re-‘Sili’-ence

Street Night Photography

Re-sili-ence
Re’sili’ence. I love this photo for its contrasting element. Red-hot chili peppers, natively known as “siling lauyo” is a staple among Filipino dining tales. (Nikon3100.f5/6.ISO400.1/2sec.)

Re-sili-ence. Every year, when the “ber” months approach, supplies in the country, big or small, no matter what kind or type, their costs continue to change.

The siling labuyo, this small, but loved-by-all commodity shook every pinoy foodie’s attention by the hike in its price.

While inflation causes heightened concerns among Filipinos, there are a lot of factors which affect increase among prices. The Philippines is vulnerable to threats caused by Economic, political, social, and natural disturbances like weather and other disasters.

There is a great call for resilience among the people. One of the suggested innovation every household can do is the planting of mini vegetation or “plant on pots” or plant boxes in the people’s backyard.

The real concerns which flood Filipino consciousness is that planting is only realized among farming communities. People in the urban areas find it hard to visualize this practice especially in houses which mostly built with no vegetative space or soils around their area.

More than the ways on how-to’s in solving problems within different aspects in the community, being “innovative” is one attitude common among Filipinos of every generation that has to be revived and relived. Once every pinoy get to realize her/his true value and capability, true resilience would be a reality and not just a projection, propaganda or policy.
