Photographer's Note

There were no Chinas and silverwares serving haute coutures dinner. There was nothing that came from hotplate, microwave or the refrigerator. There was none of those appliances. There was no dinner table with dinner friendly chairs and table clothing.
It was just you, some rudimentary eating utensils and the open fireplace. It was something which was at home in the middle ages.

This is a scene in the rickety kitchen place of a Sea Bajau family, which also serves the dinner place. To do your dinner, you sit cross-legged on the nibung/coconut trunk flooring with your plate of rice sitting on it.

So while you finger feed yourself, there would be a cat or two, giving you company under the roaring light of a hurricane lamp or a flickering overhead lamp.
