A Total TaiTai Tale

Tale of a Total TaiTai who was in Beijing & Beyond and is now in Singapore & Surroundings!

And that’s all for today.

One more day left from my trip to Bangladesh.

The end is near 😉

The making of… the bricks and the drying.

So labor intensive.

The day wouldn’t be completed without a stop at a brick factory 😉

Made in China.

He stayed close to me and kept looking at me. Not that it had been unusual for kids (and adults) to stare at us.
I kept being drawn to him.

All the kids kept saying “Made in China” and he was laughing.
I then realized they were talking about him, that’s what they were calling him.

I asked our local guide why they were calling him Made In China. He didn’t know.
Then after looking at him he seems to come to the conclusion that the other kids might me referring to the fact that he didn’t look the same and that he must be from a different ethnic background, an ethnicity closer to the China border.

你好 Ni好吗? NI Hao, Ni Hao Ma? No response.
Definitely not Chinese, but definitely a connection.

I could often predict which picture my friend was going to take. I could see what she was drawn too. She takes amazing portraits. It’s a default, her comfort zone.

I tried to take portrait too. It’s definitely not my comfort zone but it got easier and easier as the days passed.

Not only did we stopped at every bricks factory we encountered during this trip but we also stopped at a lot of random bricks places. 😂

To be fair it’s a photography tour/workshop so every opportunity we got to practice layering, subjects separation, working with (harsh) light, etc we took it.

My all time favorite tea plantation visit is still in Sri Lanka.

Women are almost always the one harvesting the tea leaves.
