Power Nap – Laoag


Even machines have to rest too, right? I took this picture in one of the corner streets in front of Marcos Stadium in Laoag City, at about 1:00 o’clock in the afternoon. It is around this time that people here take their afternoon nap. That does not surprise me, having to wake up (very)early and attend to their daily chores, they have to rest half through the day. What amazes me is how the “manang” (older lady) made up her bed! If you can’t call that raw talent, I don’t know what is. To add, it appears that she does not even want to leave her merchandise and intends to sell even when sleeping! Is she able to sell or she’s missing all the customers? Kidding aside, this is the way of life of many, not only here but elsewhere. Lucky are you who have more in life – spare some to me! 🙂
