My mum kept bugging me to watch this, and I’m glad I finally did. I bet most of you have already watched it too, but just in case you haven’t, it’s up here for you.
The moment when the children gather around the pakcik, greedily devouring every scrap of our trash is frozen in my mind. Did you see the priceless expression of joy on their faces when they see the half-eaten chicken bones? The way they grabbed at it? And the bits and pieces that get stuck in their hair as they scramble for food?
It touched a raw nerve. Who cares about Susan Boyle’s video now.
p/s: Emile, watch this for your documentary!
p/p/s: The girl in the pantene ad in the previous post? She looks like Leh Bin…does anyone think so?
