Lunch(box)

What kind of dish are you having for lunch?

Kalle Lasn, founder of Adbusters Magazine, said that "...the manchurian consumer has innate drives and his emotions trigger immediate connections with consumer goods. Hunger equals Big Mac. Drowsiness equals Starbucks." These drives hold true to some of those living in the city who are usually mandated by the daily grind of life and sequential paychecks.

For most of the parents and kids in hinterlands, option is limited only to their farm's produce (usually sweet potato, cassava, banana, and corn) and other food variety that their family can afford purchased from stores several kilometers  from their home.

Lunch(box) is a series of photos of some schoolchildren's lunchboxes in one of the schools in Mindanao. For this particular set, the photographs were taken from one school having a majority of Manobo learners located in the eastern mountainous region.

Can you guess what they are having for lunch?

Tie One

 Jonathan See Lim AKA Tie One (1979–1998), was a graffiti artist based in the San Francisco Bay Area. He was well known in the graffiti community for his aggressive style of graffiti art and the large amount of work he produced. Lim was born in the Philippines to ethnic-Chinese parents. During his early childhood, his family moved to California. -pilipinas-streetplan http://pilipinastreetplan.blogspot.com/2009/03/tie-one-19791998-rip.html Saint Patrick’s Day has always been difficult to celebrate because on this day eleven years ago, our friend and soldier Tie, Jonathan See Lim, was murdered in the Tenderloin of San Francisco on Turk and Taylor. A man named William Porter shot him in the back of his head while Tie was begining to climb a rooftop to pain. Of cource the SF police covered it up as a robbery and our 18 year old little buddies death went unvindicated. He was a major influence to us all and his memory will live on in our hearts. - saberone  http://saberone.com/blog/2009/
