Talk about the life of a farmer
Mr. Lim is a farmer by profession and he is proud of being one. His holdings are small, but he feels they are enough for him.
He owns a few hectares of good land, a ploughing machine and a small cottage. His fields are fed with water from a stream. As a modern farmer he has a pumpset for pumping water. So his fields are never allowed to go dry. He grows mainly paddy, in a small patch of land he has the vegetable garden.
Usually he is an early riser. He starts his pump and waters his fields. He will be going round to see whether water does not overflow. He may remove the weeds from among the plants. He goes into the vegetable garden to see if there is any pick for the day. He trims the hedges, digs the plots or dresses them up for the next planting. He is fond of his flower pots of which he has a few. He takes pride in them.
After these morning rounds he takes his breakfast. It is his gossiping time. He meets others and takes part in the village gossip. He cannot read, he learns about with morning news. As it is common nowadays, he discusses with his friend the day’s politics. Sometimes, the commission agent may come, and our friend will talk to him about the market prospects.
In the afternoon, after a wash and a lunch, he stretches himself for a mid-days siesta. He gets up and after a cup of tea, he goes to the fields and sees everything is in order. Then he takes a stroll in the nearly towns and makes some purchases for the house. That is also the time for him to meet friends and exchange views.
He returns home and had an early dinner. He plans for the next day. Sometimes it may be taking the grains to the market, it may be transplanting; some other times it may be taking the machine for repair. Thus he leads a simple life and he is contented.
