photoblog image Rank: Sixth

Rank: Sixth

Filipinos have been voted the sixth happiest people in the world and second in Asia [after Indians]. 


I was taking an evening walk with a photography enthusiast and these youngsters tagged along with us. Not sure about the rankings and all, but yes, Filipinos definitely are a happy and content lot.

I's odd but people who our considered "poor" seem much happier than those loving in supposedly rich countries. I like the expression of the little one in the green top.

Just wanted there picture taken Ayush like how you caught the little lad in the green top, is he wondering what happens next.
They certainly seem to put up with a lot. Have you seen 'My SariSari Store' a photoblog about the Philippines by Sidney Snoeck. Nice capture
Ayush Basu: I had not come across it earlier but thank you for pointing me in that direction. Thanks for the visit
Great shot AYUSH, I really like the inquisitive expression of the onlooker - very natural smile
Let's hope they are able to remain just as happy when they grow up.

That is nice, Ayush - it will be something to look forward to when my son's Philippina fiancee comes to join our family
Judging by these smiling faces it is easy to agree

My guess is the smiles do not lie, Ayush!

Same thing here in the african bush. Point a camera at a bunch of children and watch them explode into antics, smiles and posing. The mothers will come around demanding money.
Happy looking bunch, indeed.
