[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A day before the procession of mangongkal holy ritual, people especially relatives hand in hand with the work. Like these ladies, they are working together cleaning up rice for the next day.

They also use it as a time to chit chat for they didn't met quite often. Of course, some gossip spread in this time as well
