Photographer's Note

In the Philippines roadside restaurants like at the European motorways are not available, especially not at the country side.

Instead there are sari-sari stores with coffee and snacks available.
This motor driver is just taking a break while transporting the goods to somewhere, maybe a market in Cagayan de Oro. It was quite a big load in volume on the back of his motor.
Doing this kind of work is not very good to your health due to the huge amounts of soot produced by the jeepney's and other old cars. Often motor drivers are covering their face with some cloth.

This photo was taken from a slow driving jeepney while we were going to a rafting location. The sign pointing to it you can see in the upper left corner. I can't find the location on Google maps but it is about half an hour drive outside Cagayan de Oro.
